A quinceanera is a beautiful celebration of tradition and family, yet it can be fraught with drama. Here are 4 tips for a drama-free quinceanera:
The early stages of planning are the foundation for the rest of your quinceanera. By getting started early, you are able to figure out how the budget, theme, and venue will all work together for a magical day. This makes other decisions easier because you can add them into a larger plan over time.
Quinceaneras have several deeply moving traditions, but your daughter may have her own touches and traditions to add to the day. Remember there is a beauty to be found in balancing the old and new. Celebrate the history and importance of traditional elements, but be open to allowing new ideas so that your quinceanera feels her voice is heard too.
Everyone knows that the quinceanera waltz takes practice, yet other traditions are often left to just “come together” on the day. With such a complex event, don’t be afraid to have a dress rehearsal so that everyone is clear on what is needed from them and when. This is a good way to prevent the day-of stress and last-minute running around. It is also a good idea to run through the list of “thank you’s” to make sure no one is overlooked or forgotten.
With all the work you have put into it, relaxing and enjoying the event can be hard. Make sure you take time to taste the food, take in the atmosphere, and pose for some pictures. This is a day you will want to remember forever, so take some time to actually build those memories. Trust in your planning and do not let minor hiccups get overblown.
