A quinceanera is one of the most significant celebrations in a young Hispanic girl’s life. A day to commemorate your fifteenth birthday, it also marks your transition into womanhood. What a grand day, indeed!
Planning a quinceanera is much like planning a wedding. It takes months – sometimes more than a year – and can be incredibly stressful and overwhelming. There are so many things you need to do and details you need to consider to make sure that the day is memorable and enjoyable for everyone, especially the birthday girl.
But fret not. If you think you need some help getting started, here are a few tips that we have put together that will ensure the best quinceanera celebrations:
Set a budget
The first thing you need to do before you begin planning the party is setting a budget. Make sure your budget includes the venue, food, decor, dresses for the birthday girl and her court, party favors, and so on. You should also leave some wiggle room for unexpected expenses that might come up at the later stages.
Pick a venue
Depending on how many guests you wish to invite as well as the theme of the party, you can choose from various types of venues. Many quinces have more than 100 people attending, so it is safe to assume that you will need a venue that can accommodate that many. But if you have a strict budget, you should look for places within your budget. Scale down your guest list to reduce your costs.
Look for inspiration
If you need inspiration for the party, decor, theme, color scheme, and so on, there are plenty of resources that can help you. The internet, especially social media, can come in quite handy to look for quinceanera party ideas that match your taste and needs.
Assemble your court
A traditional quinceanera court is made up of 15 people, including the guest of honor. Some people also have 14 couples in addition to the birthday girl and her escort. There are also some who prefer to have fewer. No matter what you choose, you should pick only your closest companions who you can rely on for planning, choreographing the waltz, and other responsibilities.
Hire quinceanera party planners
Hiring party planners is probably the best decision you can make for yourself and your quinceanera party. Professional planners will not only take the stress of planning off your shoulders but will also help you stick to your budget. With the pros by your side, you can sit back and focus on enjoying the day.
