QUINCEAÑERAS

The Quinceañera is a traditional celebration of a young lady’s transition from childhood to adulthood in Latin American culture. This rite of passage has been observed for centuries and includes the involvement and support of family and friends. The event is a major accomplishment for everyone involved, such as family members like Mom or a favorite aunt. Everyone contributes to pay homage to the Quinceañera.
The organization and preparation of the celebration is done with much anticipation, and is often a large party in a rented banquet hall with buffets and lots of decorations. The day of the party, the young lady wears a long dress and dances a waltz with her father or another close male relative. The event has many essential elements, including evening gowns, tuxedos, hairdos, music, cake, buffet, invitations, jewelry, photography, decorations, flowers, and even limousine rental.
Maintaining this tradition can be quite a challenger for Hispanic families these days, and as a result, many young ladies prefer a less serious party or even a trip with friends or family. Nonetheless, many young women dream of their big day and their beautiful presentation to society.
