1st Holy Communion Checklist

Preparation is key for such an important event! Here's a checklist for the week of and the night before the 1st Holy Communion:

Week of:

  1. Finalize Outfit: Ensure the communion attire fits well and is clean. Include any accessories like headpieces, veil gloves or umbrella. For any last minute accessories check out Darcy Bow and My Dress Bridal or your dress shop most have all the accessories needed.

  2. Attend Rehearsal: If there's a rehearsal scheduled, make sure your child attends it to understand the proceedings.

  3. Purchase or Prepare Accessories: Buy or prepare any accessories needed such as a jewellery, rosary, prayer book, or a small purse to carry them in. For some of our favourite jewellery pieces check out Ramona Jewellery or Lu and Mol . 

  4. Confirm Schedule: Double-check the time and location of the ceremony, and plan travel accordingly.

  5. Hair and Grooming: Schedule any necessary hairtrails for your child. Have a look at some inspiration for styling the Abigail headpiece , if you have a Flower Crown,  a bow  or Flower pins

Night Before:

  1. Double-Check Outfit: Lay out the communion outfit along with all accessories to ensure nothing is missing.

  2. Pack Essentials: Prepare a small bag with essentials like tissues, a small mirror, hair pins, a comb, and any emergency items like band-aids.

  3. Snacks and Water: Pack some light snacks and a water bottle for your child to have after the ceremony.

  4. Charge Electronics: If you plan to take photos or videos, make sure your camera or phone is fully charged.

  5. Review the Day: Go over the plan for the next day.

  6. Relax: Encourage your child to relax and get a good night's sleep to be well-rested for the big day.
