tights or socks for first communion?

My daughter is making her first communion this year. I went shopping today for some of her things and met another mom who said some of the kids are not wearing white. Anyone hear of this?

She told me she wants her daughter in full white head to toe. My mom was saying lace socks but I think she is too old for those frilly socks. I was thinking white tights, but really I see no need for her to even wear pantyhose let alone tights. Her dress goes all t he way to the floor.

Any ideas? Any one care to tell me what their child wore? or will wear?

  • My dd's wore calf-length, white dresses with white tights and white shoes. They didn't really like frilly socks, so that's why we chose tights. I did notice that some girls wore frilly socks. I think it could just be whatever your dd prefers to wear. If the dress is long, then any kind of white socks would probably be fine.

  • Depending on where you live the weather might help determine if your daughter should wear socks or tights. I think either is fine.

  • Our church requires a white dress, white veil or headpiece, gloves are optional, and white shoes. I'd probably go with white tights, but my daughter doesn't like the frilly socks. I'd ask your daughter her opinion.

  • so nobody thinks bare leggs is ok? That is what she wants.

    Maybe I will need to talk to her about this

  • Bare legs is fine, its a fashion choice, if your daughter wants to ware socks I don't see anything wrong with that.

  • At our parish, white is not a requirement, although everyone does it anyway. My girls wore white socks with bare legs, if I remember correctly.

  • I think tights or socks are fine. My daughter hated tights - just didn't like the feeling of them so we went with socks.
