Questions to Answer for Quinceanera Celebrations

● What’s my budget?

Your birthday bash budget is the first and most important thing you must consider.

Don’t worry! It doesn’t sound as dull as you think. Consider it a roadmap to ensure you have enough funds for the celebrations.

Bring a piece of paper and pen, or open a budget app on your mobile and list all the essential items from your quinceanera gown to your makeup artist. Additionally, don’t forget to write the cost of catering, photography, florist, and venue.

Now, be true to yourself. Compare all the expenses with your pocket size, and ask yourself, “Am I ready to splash this amount of money for the birthday bash?”

But here’s a golden rule: always keep some amount of money for unexpected expenses, as they always pop up when you least expect them.

● Which outfit is perfect for me?

Before purchasing, ask yourself if the dress’s fabric feels soft and comfortable on your skin. Are the embellishments and designs too heavy? Does the dress match the color and vibes of the party theme? Is it flattering my body curves or making me look clumsy? Check for all these things and then make the final purchase.

Additionally, if you can rock the same outfit for other occasions, you have found the winner!

● Do I need the alterations?

You don’t need the alterations if you buy the outfits from top designers in the industry, as most of their dresses are designed to hug your body curves perfectly, giving you the most beautiful and flattering look.

Still, if you need alterations, such as the proper fitting of the sleeves, the zip closure, the stitching of the button, or the length of the dress, get them done a few days before the occasion to prevent any wardrobe malfunction.

● What venue and theme should I consider?

First of all, the place where you will organize the party sets the vibes of the celebrations.

Whether you are organizing the bash at a grand hotel ballroom, a cool rooftop spot, or planning a destination party near a beach, the venue sets the stage for all the crazy fun.

Let’s not forget the theme of the celebrations. You can choose a jungle theme, a fairytale theme, or a crazy retro one; just make sure you make the right choice and create the birthday bash of your dreams.

● Whom to invite?

First, make a list of close friends, best friends, and relatives without whom you can’t blow the candles. Call your cousins and try mixing the different groups of friends for a crazy blast.

Also, ensure the guests you invite do not cost you more than your budget. So, invite accordingly.

● Is my jewelry complimenting my dress?

Lay your dress and jewelry on the bed or somewhere else where you can put them together and get an idea of the look. Now, ask yourself, does my jewelry match the color of my dress? Is it too sparkling for the big day? Or should I opt for something that looks more sleek and classy?

Now, after considering all these questions, you have the right answer!

● Are my nails and hair well groomed?

Grooming is crucial to get the perfect glamorous and classy look for the occasion.

Check for split ends or frizzy hair. If you need a haircut and spa treatment, make an advance booking with a nearby salon. Also, make sure that your nails are correctly cut and filed. Book an appointment for a pedicure and manicure of your nails to prep well for your birthday celebrations.

● What makeup look will I choose?

Your makeup should always compliment your outfit and bring the best version of your natural features.

If you have selected a dark-colored dress, such as an emerald or maroon ball gown, go for dewy makeup with smokey eyes so that it blends well with the color of the outfit. But if you have chosen a light-colored dress, opt for natural makeup to create a subtle look.

● Are my heels comfortable and classy?

Lastly, check your footwear’s comfort, design, and height. Your heels should complement your dress and make you feel comfortable as you will be walking and dancing around for the celebrations.

Summing Up

Quinceanera is remarkably a big day when you will finally be saying goodbye to your childhood days. So, for such a grand celebration, it’s important to consider a few things to ensure everything goes perfectly according to the plan.

Setting up the budget creates a roadmap for the directions to be followed. Whether looking for the perfect dress, deciding the theme, creating the guest list, or choosing the makeup, every decision matters to the success of the festivities.

So, create the checklist and do things accordingly for your quince day.
