Confirmation is an important milestone in the life of a young Catholic. It is a time for celebration and reflection, and it is important to choose the right outfit to mark the occasion. The right outfit should be comfortable, stylish, and appropriate for the occasion. From traditional confirmation dresses to page boy suits and flower girl dresses that will suit the celebration perfectly, let’s explore how to pick a confirmation outfit your child will love.

Confirmation outfits for girls

When it comes to confirmation dresses, there are plenty of options available for young girls. From elegant A-line dresses in soft satin to floral designs with fuller skirts, our confirmation range is sure to have something to suit.

However, flower girl dresses are also a popular choice for a younger child’s confirmation outfit. Again, there are plenty of styles to choose from.

There are a few traditional elements you may want to consider. For example, confirmation dresses are traditionally white and fall below the knee. These days, however, an array of colours are suitable — why not try a light shade such as pale pink or lilac? Alternatively, if your child loves a pop of colour you could even opt for a lovely deep blue.

If you have any questions, you can always see what your church’s confirmation dress code is or speak to a friendly team member at New Generations. We’d be happy to talk you through our collection of children’s formal dresses.

Confirmation outfits for boys

Confirmation outfits for boys seem like a simple choice — a suit is the classic option. However, as with confirmation dresses, these days, there are various colours and styles to choose from — he doesn’t have to go for a full tuxedo!

Ultimately, it’s important that your child is neat, tidy, and semi-formal. But he can also have a bit of freedom in his outfit — whether that’s pairing a smart shirt with some tailored trousers or opting for a three-piece suit including a waistcoat. Page boy suits can be ideal for the occasion.

Does your child have a favourite colour? You could introduce this to the outfit in the form of a bow tie or tie. You may also wish to coordinate your child’s outfit with that of other family members so that you all look cohesive in family photos. Take a look at our boys’ suits to find your perfect match.

Complete the look with some eye-catching accessories

Confirmation and communion accessories are an important part of any church celebration outfit. They can add a touch of elegance and sophistication and express personality and individuality.

For girls, a simple pearl necklace or bracelet would be a great choice. You can also add a flower crown or a hair accessory to complete the look. For boys, a pocket square or a tie clip would add a smart finish. Why not also add a vest or suspenders to add a touch of retro style to the outfit?

Accessories can be practical, too. A winter confirmation ceremony can get chilly, so a chic cardigan or jacket can help your child feel comfortable and stylish.
