The communion of your dreams

First Holy Communion is a special day for your son or daughter. A day never to be forgotten. Of course, this also requires an unforgettable Communion dress or Communion suit. With a beautiful collection of children's clothes and a workshop where your own designs can be realised, we make your children's dreams come true.

The kids collection

In our wedding palace, we have an entire department with the most beautiful children's clothes. From sweet, white dresses and cool suits to the most impressive ball gowns and custom-made costumes. We have a beautiful permanent collection in the shop but in addition, nothing is impossible at Koonings and we also make communion clothes completely custom-made and to the wishes of the communion bride.

From sketch to communion dress

Within team Koonings, Annemarie is one of the specialists in children's clothing. Her talent lies mainly in creating the most beautiful and impressive communion dresses. Together with Mrs Koonings, she makes every communicant's dreams come true. Annemarie says: "It really is a dream job for me to design and make the dress of their dreams for the communicants. Nothing is too crazy. In the 23 years that I have been working here, I have been able to design many communion dresses. It is very special to be involved in such an important day." Annemarie designs and makes the communion dress entirely according to your wishes, from the drawing to the last detail.

Custom made communion dresses

Making a custom-made communion dress is, of course, a time-consuming process. It is therefore important to make an appointment about six months before the communion. During the first appointment, the communicant and her parents will meet with Annemarie to discuss the wishes for the dress. In our children's department there are a number of beautiful dresses designed and made by Koonings for inspiration. Of course, the communicant can also try these on to determine the silhouette of the dress as well. An important part because the basis for the dress has to be right. Trying on a dress quickly gives an idea of the wishes and what looks good on the communicant. All wishes will be written down and some first quick sketches will be made so Annemarie can also show that she understands what the wishes for the dress are. During this process, some fabrics and other materials may also be picked up to make the design even more tangible.

A complete look

The aim is to have the design for the dress as complete as possible after the first appointment. Accessories such as hair jewellery, gloves, bags and shoes can also be made in the style of the dress. 

When the image of the communion dress is complete, the communicant's measurements are taken. Growth is always taken into account. After this, our workshop can start working on the communion dress. 

The process is exactly the same as when buying a wedding dress. The communicant comes in for a fitting appointment to get the dress perfectly tailored. At a third appointment, the dress is fitted one last time and any final adjustments are made, after which the dress can be taken home

Putting on a communion dress like this can be quite a challenge. So, as an extra service, Annemarie or her colleagues can also come and help the communicant get dressed on the day of the communion.

Of course, we also have beautiful, cool communion clothes for boys in our collection. But here too: we can tailor everything to your wishes and requirements. Do father and son want to wear the same suit on the day of communion? Then we will make a custom-made communion suit in the same colours and fabrics as father's suit. The boys' communion clothes can also be styled to perfection with ties, pocket squares and other accessories.
