Which size should I buy?
When choosing a communion dress, please make sure that you check the size chart on each dress page carefully as communion dresses are not the same as buying ordinary clothes and they need to fit perfectly, especially as many are floor length so there is no room for error in measuring. If you need any help in measuring for a communion dress please do get in touch as we have many years' experience and can help you find a dress which fits like a glove and does not need any expensive alterations.
Visit our Shop
The best thing is to make an appointment and visit our specialist communion dress shop in Tunbridge Wells in Kent. We are easily accessible by train from London mainline stations Charing Cross, Waterloo, London Bridge and Cannon Street and also Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Warhurst, Battle and Hastings.
In the car we are about an hour from Brighton, Hove, Hastings, Greenwich, Blackheath, Ashford, Canterbury and much of Essex via the M25 where we are about 20 minutes from junction 5.
The shop is open on Saturdays but strictly by appointment. Each family gets a one hour appointment where the shop is open exclusively for them and you can choose your dress in peace, try on as many as you want, and when you have chosen your dress and accessories to match, you can take it home with you straight away.
Interest Free Credit
If you would like to spread the cost of your purchase, we can do this over however many months you choose or have until your communion day. You pay an initial deposit, we hold your dress and accessories in the meantime, and when you have made sufficient monthly payments to pay for the dress you can either collect it or we can send it to you.
What is First Holy Communion?
First Holy Communion is a tradition of the Catholic Church when a child is first given the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. In the United Kingdom and Ireland this rite of passage is usually celebrated when the child is seven or eight years old. The event is usually followed by a large family gathering.
The communion dress is an important part of the day and white is traditionally worn to symbolize purity. A veil is often worn to cover the head but sometimes this is replaced by another form of headdress such as a tiara or floral crown or hair clip with veil attached. Girls may also carry a communion bag in which to carry their prayer book and rosary beads and gloves are also commonly worn.
The child is given religious gifts and money by friends and relatives.
