My daughter makes her First Communion in May, and I am in search of the perfect dress: Unique, inexpensive and not heavy (we live in Florida!). I also don’t want to spend a fortune on a dress that she will realistically only wear once. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. -Heather
We think your daughter will find something she loves—and you love too—among these affordable options from some of our favorite clothing companies for kids. -Christina
Mini Boden’s Broiderie Dress
(at top) is age-appropriate and simple, but not plain. Love that it is versatile enough to be worn with bright capri leggings later too.
We love Zara for both its style and its great prices. This white dress with frills and lace trim
would be a pretty and affordable choice for a First Communion.
This delicate dot Cecilia dress
from Ses Petites Mains has a special-occasion price, but it is so lovely and looks so comfortable for an important day. Love the neckline!
Sweden’s Djaknemala Cloud Dress
has a light breezy look and gets some pretty detail from the delicate gold feathers. I think it’d feel comfortable even on a hot Florida May day.
Though we have not worked with this Etsy clothier before, Un Petite Chou’s cotton peasant dress
looks so pretty and is very affordable. Her reviews from previous customers are terrific too.
