Quinceañera is the Spanish word for a girl who is 15-years-old. This signifies a rite of passage for Hispanic girls turning 15-years-old and it’s a long-standing tradition in Latin American cultures. If you have ever attended a Quinceañera celebration, you know how elaborate they can be. Sometimes they can be so lavish, they feel more like a wedding than a birthday celebration.
These celebrations often feature elaborate formal wear, a church ceremony, choreographed dances and fresh flowers. Planning an event of this magnitude can be quite the challenge as the scope of the event depends upon the family’s culture, beliefs and budget.
We here at Custom Labels Depot understand how important it is to make your event unique and we are here to help you. Here are some tips to help you plan the perfect Quinceañera.
Planning for the event should start about a year in advance. You can begin by selecting Godparents for sponsors. Nowadays, it seems girls select multiple sets of Godparents to sponsor select items of need for the event. This strategy works out for everyone involved as it can help minimize costs for individuals. Sponsored items can be anything from covering costs for the caterer to costs for a cake.
Determine Your Budget
You will need to discuss budgets for all items with all the Godparents. They will need to be involved in determining your budget and planning as they are contributing to the costs involved.
Make a Guest List
If you choose to have Godparents cover the costs for the reception you will need to communicate the venue costs with them to make sure you all are on the same page.
Collect Magazine Pictures
You can get inspiration from magazines and websites. Pin some ideas on Pinterest. Start a notebook for inspiration and ideas. Collect photos of things you’d like to incorporate for the event.
Research Event Sites
Contact your church and check on parish requirements and select a date for the event. Research possible venues and dates for your reception. Make sure to ask the venue if they provide a caterer or if you will need to hire one. Make sure to discuss these options with the Godparents.
If the venue does not include a caterer you will need to do your research. Call for quotes and always ask for a sample of food. This will give you an idea of the food quality and taste. Again, this is something you will need to discuss with the Godparents.
