Inviting the right guests to a First Communion celebration…

From the invites to the invite list, choosing the right guests to attend the First Communion is important. First Communion is generally a more intimate affair, especially since it begins in the church. The invitees who should be included in a child’s First Communion include the godparents, siblings, relatives, grandparents and close friends. When considering whether or not to invite someone to the First Common, ask yourself if he or she will impact the child’s life or religious development on a consistent basis. If the answer is no, then you can leave them out.

Choosing the right First Communion outfits…

Keep in mind the First Communion will be in a church, so usually your Sunday’s best will apply for all friends and family members. However, the children participating will have to wear something a bit more specific. A First Communion dress or suit will be needed for the child, which can be found at any local bridal store, or online. First Communion outfits can range in price, so if you choose to spend a significant amount, rest assured, it is something that you’ll save for memory’s sake, or something the child can wear again.

Throwing a First Communion party…

While throwing a party for a First Communion is not mandatory, it is often a great way to acknowledge and mark the occasion in a very special way. Many families may choose to have their friends and loved ones back at their house, but some may choose to go out to breakfast or lunch after the ceremony instead. The decision will ultimately be up to you. If you prefer not to have to host or worry about food preparation or clean up and just want to enjoy the day, then going out to celebrate is a great idea. For those who don’t mind having the party at their house, invite a few people to spend the afternoon eating, laughing, and celebrating. One thing to keep in mind for your party, whether out at a restaurant or at home, always make sure there is cake!

A First Communion marks a very special time in a child’s life, which is why the occasion is celebrated with just a few simple steps.
