First Communion season is nearly upon us, and we understand just how important and exciting this is for every child; a joyful and holy occasion, Communion simply means ‘togetherness’ so it is a tradition that everyone can enjoy. It is a special day, and our staff at ASK makes the dress shopping experience special too!
THE HISTORY BEHIND THE DRESSES
When a child takes their First Holy Communion, they unite with Jesus in a way that they never have before, and their souls become the bride of Christ. This is why girls wear white dresses. It is a celebration and a rite of passage that marks a big milestone in the child’s life. All the family are invited, photographers are usually booked and after parties and gifts are given to the ‘mini brides’.

THE ASK DIFFERENCE
The owners of ASK Dress Boutique, Sarah and Karen, both have daughters that have made their First Holy Communion. They know that a child’s First Communion is a special day, and dress shopping for the event should be a fun experience. So often nowadays our schedules are hectic, busy and rushed – but choosing a dress for this joyous event should not be. Our staff at ASK tries to make each Communicant feel special when choosing their Perfect Dress. We want the shopping experience to be a special memory between the daughter and her family. We encourage the “twirl test” and trying on different veils when choosing the dress of her dreams.
Please feel free to call the boutique with any questions that you may have. No appointments are needed to shop at ASK. A selection of our First Communion dresses and accessories can be seen on our website at www.askdressboutique.com. We hope to see you soon!
