First Holy Communion is first in line of the happy events your little one is going to have in his or her life. While it will be a handful of joy for the child, it is another handful of job for the mommy. You must think of every little detail, so that everything goes as planned. Setting the date, finding the venue, inviting the guests and of course shop for the perfect outfit are just some of the things you need to take care of.
First, you should set the date for the receiving the First Holy Communion. Furthermore, the preparations and planning of the party must start months before. This way you will be able to better coordinate the date of the religious service with celebration date. Considering many children will be receiving their First Communion the same day, you might not be able to reserve a suitable banquet hall for your celebration, unless you make a call months earlier.
The more guests you invite, the larger the venue you will need to find. Your backyard can be a great place to celebrate if it is large enough for the party. This way you will save the money on renting one, and have the opportunity to hire a great catering service and additional help around the organization. This is appropriate solution if you plan to have a small gathering, and invite only immediate family and a few close friends. However, I suggest you find a professional venue because you will get a variety of benefits over holding your celebration at home.
If you have decided to host the party at your home instead of at the restaurant or some venue, you will need a catering service. Make sure you book them far ahead because every caterer is booked months earlier for weddings, birthday parties and various other celebrations. Feel free to discuss about the menu and do not forget to include all the favourite snacks of your little angel. After all, this is their big day, and they should be focused on the most.
Finally, the cutest part of the celebration is your child’s outfit. Whether you will choose a dress for a girl or a suit for the little gentleman, there are a few things to consider. Make sure you ask your daughter what kind of a communion dress and shoes she would like to wear. Let her decide between different cuts and colours of holy communion dresses and if she would like it to be white, or some other colour. Maybe she would want fluffy, or simple, with cap sleeves or long sleeves, and she might want to accessorize with veil, headband or tiara.
Boy’s outfit might take a little more time, considering you should buy an entire suit. 2-piece or 3-piece suit, navy blue, wine, black or grey, all of the colours are suitable. A matching tie and shoes are in order and your little boy will look dashing.
The most important thing about your child’s First Holy Communion is to start planning as soon as possible. Go over all the possible predicaments, so you can skilfully avoid them, and everything will go smoothly. Good luck!
