With Communion season upon us, we wanted to give you some ideas to make your child’s day special, without spending a fortune. We headed to the Ilac Shopping Centre Dublin as its one place where you can get everything you need!!
First up, the outfits for the kids! Dunnes Stores, Ilac Centre has a fabulous range of Communion dresses and accessories for girls and smart suits and clothing for boys. Here are some of our top pics for boys & girls:
And here are some of the beautiful dresses from the Paul Costelloe range, see here:
For Confirmation girls, Quiz have a great range of clothing and they start at a UK size 4, so ideal for tweens and teens – like this fab orange suit for Confirmation girls and the dresses are gorgeous for Mammies & aunties etc. See some of our fave picks here:
River Island has some beautiful pieces too, we love the boho chic looks, perfect for Mammies for special occasions and also, good options for tweens & teens in there too
Stitch a name have wonderful ideas for personalised gifts for Communions, like personalised dressing gowns and pajamas with the child’s name on them. They also have fab dressing gowns which would make a wonderful gift for the Mammies this #MothersDay or for a birthday gift for someone special!
For curvy ladies, Yours Clothing is great. They have comfy and stylish dresses, great underwear and lovely casual clothes for coming into spring summer too! This is one of my fave dresses I picked up there, love the vibrant green!
If you are thinking of ear piercing, Claires Accessories are wonderful, our daughters got their ears pierced in Claire’s Ilac for their Communions and we are happy to recommend them, the staff are so lovely! See more here:
