2019 is fast approaching, and that means a new year filled with gatherings, celebrations, and plenty of opportunities for brand-new memories. And for many, the new year will also include quite a few long-awaited quinceañeras.
If your daughter is set to celebrate her quinceañera in 2019, you’re in for some truly magical moments—but those lifelong memories will be overcome with stress and frustration if you wait until the last minute to plan the party.
Never fear! The team at Bliss is here to help. As one of LA’s best banquet halls, we have hosted many amazing and memorable quinceañeras.
That’s why we have provided a few important quinceañera party planning tips here to help get you perfectly prepared for your little girl’s big day.
1) Choose A Theme Early
The first step in planning a quinceañera is choosing a theme. Get started early by determining what kind of party your daughter wants to have so that you can get a basic idea of the décor you’ll need. That way, when you start looking at event venues, you’ll know exactly what you’re looking for.
2) Decide A Budget And Stick To It
It’s easy to overspend on a quinceañera, especially when you want to bring your daughter’s dream party to life. That’s why it’s important to set a budget early on and stick to it throughout your entire party-planning process.
Setting a budget early on will help eliminate overly expensive or unnecessary spending, and will help make your planning go much smoother.
3) Don’t Start Planning Alone
Planning a quinceañera is a massive undertaking, and you shouldn’t plan the party alone. To make sure your daughter’s celebration is a hit, consider hiring a professional party planner to ensure every last detail of the big day is covered.
And if your budget won’t allow a professional’s help, you can always enlist a few friends or family members to help you plan.
4) Research Your Event Venue Options
Regardless of your location, you’re bound to find a wide variety of event venues ready to host your quinceañera. But remember, not all event venues are equal.
Be sure to do the research and actually talk to multiple venue managers regarding their location’s services before making your decision.
It can be tough to get the complete picture of an event venue through online research alone, and taking the extra steps to research your options will help you pick the best venue for your party.
5) Use Seasonal Floral Decorations
Floral centerpieces are a staple at many quinceañeras. While the theme your daughter chooses will help determine which flowers you should use as decorations, it’s always a good idea to use seasonal options.
Taking advantage of flowers that are abundant and easily available will also help you save some money.
6) Consider Accommodations For Your Guests
You’ll want to invite plenty of family members to your daughter’s quinceañera. After all, it only happens once in her life! However, inviting older relatives such as grandparents means that you’ll need to make some extra accommodations.
Be sure to show the older members of your family respect during the party by ensuring that there are plenty of places for them to sit, relax, and be comfortable.
And if you’re going to have a lot of young guests—think kids 10 years old and younger—you might want to consider hiring a babysitter to watch them at the party so their parents can actually enjoy themselves.
7) Don’t Forget The Thank-You Notes
After the party, it’s important to thank all of the friends, loved ones, and other guests who attended. That’s why a nice handwritten thank-you note from your daughter will be a great cap to the entire quinceañera experience. Your guests will truly appreciate a kind, heartfelt note.
