You might have been quietly planning this party in your mind, and you can see the party being the best party in the neighborhood during the coming year.
Do you dream of your daughter wearing the most gorgeous ball gown, do you dream of all the men wearing tuxedos for the event? Well, stop it right there. You might want to turn this quincenera into the debutante ball of the century, but is this really what your daughter wants for her quincenera?
It is going to be a day your daughter won’t want to forget but if she doesn’t feel comfortable in what she is wearing, she will be wishing the hours away. She will end up with bad memories of the party only.
Now it could be totally the opposite, where you are hoping for a jeans party down at a local restaurant and you daughter dreams of a debutante ball. Can you meet somewhere in the middle?
Maybe you do have a daughter who loves anything romantic, how do you choose what is suitable for her quincenera party? You can find some great stores around that sell ball gowns for teenagers, and you and your daughter can have fun shopping together. Get her to try on different gowns, and even try some on you. Make it a fun day out for the two of you.
If you don’t like something, don’t make a huge scene about it. Get out of the shop find the nearest coffee shop and sit down and talk. Explain why you don’t like it. Your daughter wants to be treated like an adult, and would appreciate it if you did talk to her like an adult rather than a young child.
But to be practical there is no point in spending a lot of money if at the end of the day your daughter’s quincenera party is a few friends coming to your home, to watch movies and have a pizza to eat. You really do need to decide what the party is going to be before spending money on clothes which will only hang in the closet.
Once you have made a decision about the type of party your daughter wants then you can fun planning what everybody is going to wear. Make sure you tell the guests whether the party is formal or casual dress. The last thing you want is everybody wearing casual when you expected them to be in formal dress or the other way around.
