Bat Mitzvah dresses and protastant confirmation dresses for young ladies by ana alcazar.
We have already addressed the important issues concerning the holy sacrament of confirmation in the Roman Catholic Church. In the Protestant denomination, confirmation marks the transition of a young lady or man from clerical childhood to adulthood as well as the Bat Mitzvah ritual in the jewish religion. In the olden days, confirmation and graduation from school happened at the same time, thus initialising the step into adulthood. Now that education is generally longer, this has obviously changed, yet confirmation is still an important event, which is mostly celebrated at the age of 14 (Bat Mitzvah at the age of 12 or 13). In contrast to the Catholic Church, Protestants do not regard confirmation as a holy sacrament but merely as a festive blessing ceremony. This ceremony, however, marks one of the most important events in the lives of Protestant Christians that of course calls for an appropriate confirmation dress.
What you should remember when buying a confirmation dress.
No matter if boy or girl – the confirmants traditionally used to wear black. Today, this is not compulsory anymore; it’s even rather common to choose the confirmation dress
according to the latest colours and trends. But there are a few important details to remember here: the confirmation dress or the bat mitzvah dress
makes its appearance at a festive event and accordingly an appropriate choice is of the essence. That’s why mini dresses are a real taboo
; a confirmation dress is supposed reach down to the knees, maybe even cover them. If you decide to buy a dress with thin spaghetti straps or one with neck holders, make sure to wear a short bolero, a fine knit jacket or a blazer with matching colours on top. Uncovered shoulders are just as inappropriate in church as a low neckline. Extravagant cuts like low-backed dresses or one shoulder pieces are the apt choice for parties but not for a confirmation.
