5 Tips for Planning the Perfect Quinceañera

When planning a quinceañera it is important to take every detail into consideration so that everything goes off without a hitch. Whether the guest of honor is your daughter, niece, nieta or just a good friend, helping them ensure the event is as spectacular and memorable as possible is a must. Here at Longmeadow we have hosted our fair share of Colorado quinceañeras, and boy howdy do we have some tips and tricks that we’ve picked up over the years. So, if you are in the process of planning this special day for yourself or a loved one, then keep on reading for some helpful advice on how to plan the perfect fiesta de cumpleaños!

Tip #1: Budget, Budget, & Budget!

Quinceañera planning has to start somewhere, and a great place to begin is with the budget. Deciding on an amount that you are willing and able to spend will help set the expectations. It will also determine how much you can allocate to each aspect of the party. You will also want to put aside portions of the budget accordingly based on the preferences of the guest of honor. Some people may prefer lots of food and beverage options, while others will want more to be spent on reserving the perfect venue. Having a well defined budget early on will help make the rest of the planning process that much easier.

Tip #2: Think About the Guest List

Everyone from Abuela to the second cousin twice removed is going to want an invite, even if they can’t actually make it to the party. That being said, it is extremely important to put some real time and thought into who you actually want there on the big day. You should prioritize which people are most important and invite them first, and then invite others based on what your budget allows. A well thought out guest list can also help prevent problems by not inviting people with past conflicts, or at least not seating them at the same table! Overall, nailing down the ideal guest list is a crucial step when it comes to quinceañera planning.

Tip #3: Send Out Invites Early

When most people think of a winter proposal the holidays are typically the first thing to come to mind. You can always ask your SO infront of the christmas tree or under the mistletoe, but it’s never a bad idea to double up the holiday party excitement with an engagement that grandma will never forget. Another engagement idea that works well is a proposal on New Year’s. This gives you and your partner the chance to start the year off right and spend it planning the big day. However you celebrate this holiday season, it is the perfect time of year to give the gift of eternal love to your partner.

Tip #4: Talk to Your Church

Here in Colorado there are a lot of churches around that would love to support their community and help make the day extra special. We recommend reaching out to the leaders of your church to see if there is anything they can do. From planning assistance, to help with staffing, to having the priest read some passages from the bible, there are loads of options to bring the presence of the lord into the equation. It’s easy enough to reach out to your local church and ask for they’re participation in the event, and as this is an important coming of age event for a member of their congregation, they are probably more than willing to lend a hand. If the venue you’ve chosen is too far from your normal house of worship, you can always reach out to a church of the same denomination that is closer to see if they may be willing to offer some support.

Tip #5: Lock Down A Location

One of the most important factors for any event is the venue, especially when it comes to quinceañeras! Similar to a wedding, the perfect location makes all the difference. Colorado quinceañera venues can fill up surprisingly fast throughout the year because many of these places are hosting other events such as weddings, graduations, and family reunions. It is in your best interest to get the venue locked down right out of the gate. For smaller occasions there’s nothing wrong with hosting the event at a church or a family member’s house, but truly the best option is an event center like Longmeadow. Venues like ours feature full service options, as well as plenty of amenities and accommodations, and will make hosting a larger event muy fácil. Event Centers like Longmeadow will also be a huge help when it comes to all of the planning. Wherever you decide to host the big day, the right venue will make or break the perfect quinceañera.
