Does Your Quinceañera Have All the Essentials?

Does Your Quinceañera Have All the Essentials?

The quinceañera is one of the most significant events in many young ladies’ lives, and Balmoral Event Center has been happy to host these lovely celebrations several times. This rite of passage is a beautiful, meaningful tradition with roots in Aztec and European customs. For a successful quinceañera that creates lasting memories, there are a few key points to bear in mind.

Your Quinceañera Must-Haves
For some families, the quinceañera is a religious ceremony, and for others, it’s a more secular celebration. Whatever path you choose, Balmoral Event Center recommends including these essential aspects of the ceremony.

Presentation of the Gifts. This is one of the first steps of a quinceañera celebration. Often a godparent, family member, or close friend does the presentation. Gifts may be religious in nature, such as a Bible or rosary, or something simply personally meaningful, such as jewelry.

  • Rose Ceremony. This requires three roses in varying stages of bloom: rosebud, half-opened rose, and a fully bloomed rose. The girl’s mother offers her the rosebud, symbolizing youth and innocence. Then, the godmother or a grandmother offers the half-opened rose as a symbol of understanding right and wrong. Then a grandmother or other older female relative offers the completely bloomed rose, representing the temporary beauty of youth.
  • The Quinceañera Waltz. The waltz is danced with the young lady’s father to a song chosen beforehand, such as “Sobre las Olas” or “A Ritmo de Bals.”
  • Last Doll. The doll to be presented should resemble the girl being celebrated, and wear a matching dress. It is a representation of her growth from childhood into adulthood.
