10 Fun Quinceañera Traditions For Your Party

Jun 14, 2016

In Latin American cultures, girls celebrate the transition into womanhood on their 15th birthday with a special celebration known as a Quinceañera. This is similar to a Sweet 16 party in the United States, but with religious roots and many unique traditions. Here are 10 fun Quinceañera traditions you may want to incorporate into your party:

1.) Church Ceremony

A traditional Quinceañera party starts off with a church ceremony where the girl is accompanied by a court of her peers, her parents and her God parents.

2.) The Court

A court of 14 girls (damas) and 14 boys (chambelans) accompanies the girl on her big day, participating in festivities and ceremonies. The 14 couples represent each year of the girl’s life.

3.) First Dance

The first dance at a Quinceañera is reserved for the girl’s father.

4.) The Gown

The Quinceañera gown is traditionally very elaborate. Huge ball gowns with layers of tulle netting are worn to achieve a princess look. Light pink and white are the most commonly worn colors.

5.) The Food

No party is complete without food. Quinceañera celebrations are known for their elaborate feasts and foods served represent the culture of the girl.

6.) Parent Participation

Unlike other coming-of-age traditions, the Quinceañera requires heavy parental involvement during ceremonies and festivities.

7.) Sponsors

Elaborate parties are expensive and it’s traditional for families and even communities to pitch in for the festivities. Sponsors can be neighbors or relatives.

8.) Candle Lighting

During the ceremonial part of the Quinceañera, a girl will light candles to honor those that have played an important role in her life. It is traditional for the girl to choose 15 people.

9.) Firsts

The first public dance, first pair of heels and first time being allowed to date are all milestones marked by the Quinceañera.

10.) Gifts

Unlike a regular birthday party, a Quinceañera involves gifts that are more symbolic such as bibles, rosaries, dolls and more.

You’ve found the perfect Quinceañera dress, but now it’s time to accessorize. The right combination of shoes, jewelry and other accessories can complete your look and make your party a true success. When searching for accessories, think about your party’s theme, the style of your dress, your individual taste and whether or not you’ll be performing a dance at your party.

Dress Accessories

First, think about the dress. You’ll need a pair of shoes to wear with it that are comfortable enough to dance in, yet elegant enough to compliment the design. Jewelry and a small handbag can also be included. When choosing jewelry, take into account the style of the dress. For example, beaded high necklines rarely require a necklace, but a sheath dress can benefit greatly from a dramatic statement piece. Of course, every dress pairs well with a tiara.

Other Needs

While it’s easy to get caught up in shoes and jewelry, it’s important to think about your other needs. From tattoo covering kits to petticoats and garment bags, the list of Quinceañera accessories can be intimidating. Try on your dress as soon as it arrives and you’ll quickly see if anything needs to be hidden, lifted or altered with discreet accessories.

With the right accessories and a beautiful gown, you’ll be ready to walk into your Quinceañera with your head held high. Shop for all of your Quinceañera accessory needs at DressProm.net for the best selection and lowest prices.
