FOUND An "All White" Boys Communion Suit!!!

My son is 8 years old and his communion is on Sunday, May 4, 2008. I have been looking for over a month and can not find an ALL WHITE boys communion suit anywhere. I have called JC Penny, Dillards, Sears, Burlington Coat Factory, The Men's Wearhouse, etc... If anyone has any info out there, PLEASE repspond ASAP. I am at wits end here. There are a TON of girl's communion dresses but nothing for boys. My last resort would be for my son to wear navy blue, but we are a very traditional family and prefer the his suit to be all white. Again, any leads that anyone has out there would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in Advance to all who reply.

What can I do next?

"Google" all white communion suit, order express delivery

Try calling some of the places that you rent tuxedos for weddings. I know that I got married I rented an all white suit fro our ring bearer at the Fashion Square Mall at a tusedo rental shop!
Good luck to you!

I typed "boy white communion suit" into Google and came up with a bunch. Sometimes, when you do a search, you do not find what you are looking for if you are too specific.

These are just a random few. I actually have two girls, but I know how hard it is to work full time and try to get the things done that need to get done.

Good luck and enjoy!

Hi C.

Try a rental place for men's formals. You may have to rent it, but they may have what you are looking for. We have several in Longwood. You could also do ebay, my friend just got a full tux for her little nephew.
I run a shop where you can trade your items in for "new" ones and run across all sorts of items. I do not presently have the size you need. You are welcome to come and make friends, we treat everyone like family and would enjoy helping in any way we could.

Check with your parish to see if they have any recommendations. They may have a dress code for what all the kids wear to FHC.

C.:

I am a Catholic woman and just a couple of years older than you....I remember all the boys wearing the solid white little suits for their First Holy Communion. However, that was in the late 70's! We attend a LARGE Catholic church in SW Orlando, and my son had his FHC last year (and we just attended our friend's son's FHC last weekend)...the boys simply aren't wearing all white anymore. I truly do not want to offend you, and I can appreciate your traditionalism, but they are wearing any color suits (black, gray, navy, khaki...) with white shirts (that are doing the symbolic representation of this beautiful event) and, about half in colored ties/half in white ties. I can understand wanting to be traditional, but, in this case, I fear, if you do find an all-white suit, he'll look like he should be walking up the aisle to the beat of "Stayin' Alive"! Another beauty of wearing a colored suit, is that he will get to wear it again too! If you are still determined to do this, I often check E-Bay for specific items I can't find anywhere else (i.e. favorite Gap silk skirt, certain pair of shoes, etc.)

Hope this helps!

Have you tried a bridal or tux shop? They might have something in white.
