Planning the Perfect Quinceañera on the Budget
by Carmen Ordonez
Quinceañeras can get pretty expensive, but with these simple tips you can easily throw a fabulous party without spending mucho dinero!
Get creative. Instead of spending money on store bought decorations, why not make them yourself? Choose from table centerpieces and quinceañera party favors–buy the materials and gather up some friends and family for a night of DIY projects. Pinterest is a great place to get ideas and inspiration.
Narrow your guest list. By limiting the number of guests on your list you’ll be able to save tons of money on food, and invitation costs—allowing you to get exactly what you want, like these invitations from David’s Bridal!
Make your own invitations. Looking to coordinate your DIY centerpieces and favors? Why not make your own invitations, and save some money in the process! You can easily print an image at an office supply store using cardstock paper, or go green and send out invitations via email.
Look for dresses on sale. David’s Bridal has some amazing Quinceañera dresses that will leave you looking stylish and fabulous without breaking the bank like this gorgeous gown!
Let them eat cake cupcake. Instead of buying an extravagant cake, consider cupcakes. They are less expensive and look super cute–you can even make your own cupcake toppers to dress them up.
Buy flowers that are in season. Sure you love hydrangeas, but at $7 a bunch they can get pretty expensive. Look for flowers that are in season to help stay within your budget.
