If you have ever planned a Quinceanera, you know it is a lot like planning a wedding. There is so much that goes into planning a Quince that family members begin planning as far back as one year in advance. You can have the perfect “sweet 15” without overcomplicating it. We’ll show you how with this basic planning guide. Don’t forget to contact M&M Limo and Airport Service to rent a limousine in South Florida. We will transport you and your family to the venue and back safely and on time. Now let’s get to that guide!
Pick a Date
When planning a big event, you need to take it one step at a time. The first step when planning a Quince is to pick a date on or close to your daughter’s actual birthday. Many families choose a date that is close to the birthday to better accommodate friends and family members. For birthdays that fall on a weekday, it is customary to celebrate on the Saturday before or after the actual birthday.
Set a Budget
Celebrating a Quinceanera is a lot like celebrating a wedding in many ways, especially when it comes to cost. If you want to curtail your spending, it’s important to set a budget. This should be done before planning out the other details of the party. If you are worried about overspending, there are many ways you can cut costs. The first step is to create a budget, which you’re already doing. Next, consider the following:
- What are the biggest features of a Quince celebration? Talk to your daughter about which to keep and which to exclude.
- Saturday celebrations are customary, but not mandatory. If you can gather all your friends and family on a Friday night, you might secure the venue at a fraction of the cost.
- Do you have an aunt who is good at baking cakes or a sister-in-law who is a master at applying makeup? Ask your friends and family to lend a hand.
- Contact our limo service in South Florida for affordable transportation.
Pick a Venue
You have several options when picking the right venue for your daughter’s Quince. First, figure out how many guests will be attending so you book a space that can accommodate everyone comfortably. Then, depending on your budget, you can select from one of these popular options:
- Reception hall
- Church recreation space
Reception halls, rec spaces, and backyards are the most common options, but you can get creative. Just make sure to keep your daughter’s taste and preferences in mind.
Hire a Catering Company
Planning a party and preparing the food is a challenge, so for your own benefit, consider hiring a catering company or restaurant that offers catering. A catering company typically offers service, but a restaurant is usually more affordable. If you decide to hire a local restaurant to fit within your budget, buffet style is the way to go, as everyone serves themselves.
Consider The Dress Code
This is one step that your daughter has to be involved in. A Quince celebrates your daughter entering adulthood, so buying an elegant dress is a must. Since it is customary for everyone to dress up, it’s recommended that you talk to the parents of all the children who will be invited. Let the parents know what the dress code is well in advance. That way, if tuxes and dresses are mandatory, the parents can decline if it’s too expensive.
Entertainment is one feature you cannot exclude from a celebration. Talk to your daughter and find out what she has in mind for entertainment. Would she prefer a DJ or a band? Whichever you choose, make sure the entertainment is familiar with a Quinceanera celebration. Remember to include variety, as there will be teenagers and adults present, and you want a little something for everyone.
