Communion Preparations

When I first pulled her tiny body up onto my chest, I was overwhelmed with one of the most powerful joys that I can remember.  Our little light is now seven, and this spring, she’ll join her second-grade class in receiving her First Communion.  She’s worked so hard to prepare her heart.  And our family is so happy to lift her up in love and support her in this meaningful ceremony. A few months ago, my mother found the Communion dress that she made me nearly 30 years ago.  An ancient stain marked it unwearable, and I suppose that I’ve had a specific vision in mind for my precious girl.  Her dress would be tasteful and elegant  – a keepsake First Communion dress reflecting the importance of the day.

A specific dream we found in Chasing Fireflies angelic First Communion Collection.

All of Chasing Fireflies beautiful First Communion Dresses are exquisite in their fabrics, intricate details and embellishments, including the Satin & Lace Dress that we both set our hearts upon.  Comprised of elegant white satin, adorned with stunning white lace appliqué at the hem and waist.  The silky satin-covered buttons along the back and the most delicate lace cap sleeves are among the stand-out-details.  A touch of beading embellishes the waist, and the box pleat skirt picks up the perfect amount of flair from an attached crinoline.

We adore the addition of the Vintage Flower Tiara & Veil – featuring a delicate crown of flowers which cascades into an attached tiered veil.


Chasing Fireflies also offers many additional Communion Day products – including girls dress shoes, gifts and beautifully coordinating accessories. We think that their Angel Mary Janes and satin gloves are perfect for the occasion.


My sweet girl took such care when I steamed her dress and veil and dressed her up.  And when she walked ever so slowly to the mirror to look at herself – she took  my breath away.

Of course this day is about so much more than the dress.  It is about grace and hope and counting blessings while naming them together one-by-one.  And after the day is done, I’ll carefully pack away her beautiful keepsake dress that will color her special memories of that day forever.
