A quinceañera is the celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday in Latin American culture. It marks the transition from childhood to womanhood and is a very important aspect of a young woman’s life. Quinceañeras usually involve a religious ceremony, a dinner and a dance, so it is important to dress appropriately.
The quince girl is the center of attention this day, and should dress appropriately. Because the celebration begins with a church ceremony, it is important to be respectful of the venue and especially yourself. This is the first time people will see you as an adult so it is important to look like one. A ball gown is the traditional choice for quinceañeras but some girls prefer shorter hemlines or semi-formal cocktail dresses. Whatever you decide, be sure to keep it classy.
Whether your outfit is formal or semi-formal, finding the perfect accessory to match is part of the fun! For a formal dress, a crystal clutch is a perfect choice. You can find one that matches the color of your dress exactly, or go with a metal like gold or silver that picks up the details in the fabric. For a semi-formal occasion, a chic leather handbag or envelope purse may be the right choice for you.
Your shoes will change from flats to high heels at the completion of your first waltz with your father. This marks your final dance as a child and the first of many as a woman. Be sure to choose a pair that you love that matches your dress!
As the quince girl, it is customary to gift the women in your Court of Honor a small token of your appreciation. After all, much like the bridesmaids in a wedding, your Court is there to help you prepare for this special day. Perhaps a beautiful pair of crystal earrings paired with a silk scarf in their favorite color. You can also create a “gift basket” and enclose both gifts inside a chic beaded purse!
We hope these tips help you prepare for the perfect quinceañera! Feliz cumpleaños, bella!
