You never thought this day would come, but it is finally here. Your little girl has turned 15 and is now a beautiful young lady. She has a great personality, a fun spirit and a nimble brain. Now that you have reached this point with her, you want to celebrate, and are going to throw her a quinceañera. For those who are unfamiliar with a quinceañera, this is a chance to give your teen daughter a celebration for her birthday. Traditionally, this party is meant to celebrate the transition from childhood to young womanhood, so you want to treat your daughter with respect and pride.
If you are considering giving your daughter this party, there is a lot of work that you have to do. If you want to have the party on your daughter’s actual birthday, you have given yourself a hard deadline to meet, and you want to do what you can in order to make your daughter’s celebration one of the best. Here are a few things to consider as you begin preparations.
1. Set a budget that you can stick to.
It’s going to be very easy to overspend on this occasion, especially because you want your daughter to have the best for her quinceañera. However, you have to set a practical budget that you will stick to. Make sure that you do not indulge in everything; find some things that you can splurge on and save on other items that might not be so important. This will allow you to stay within budget more easily, while still getting exactly what you need and what your beautiful daughter wants.
2. Find a photographer to chronicle this occasion.
Because this is such a special occasion, you want to make sure that you get photos of your daughter at this point. You might even want to have the photos done before the quinceañera so that they can be handed out to family members as a token of the celebration. Make sure that you look at local picture studios to see what packages you have at your disposal, and pick what fits your needs.
3. Give your daughter a token to remember this day.
While you have given her a celebration to remember for a lifetime, you still want to give her something special that will help her recall how much you love her. You can find a small necklace, bracelet or ring that commemorates her transition into young adulthood. While she is not done growing, she is going to enter a point in her life where she has a lot of decisions to make. With this token, she can remember that she can rely on you and your spouse to help her through them.
