Getting ready to start planning your very own quinceañera, but not quite sure where to start? We’re here to help! From your theme to the accessories, we’ve got you covered, and now with our new Quinceañera Boutique, you can find your head-to-toe look all in one place. Keep reading for our quinceañera checklist!

Choose your colors & theme

Step one in your planning process is to choose your colors and theme for your fiesta! Think about your favorite books, movies and hobbies to find inspiration for your theme and create your color palette from there. For an Under the Sea theme, choose shades of bold blues and greens. Red and gold look glam for an Old Hollywood theme. Shades of soft pink and green are perfect for an Enchanted Forest theme, while silver and white create a shimmering Winter Wonderland. Your quinceañera theme is a reflection of you and what you love!

Find your dream dress

No quinceañera would be complete without a show-stopping dress! Look for dresses with colors and details that complement your theme. From beautiful pastels to bright jewel-tone colors, celebrate your XV años with a gorgeous dress from our newest exclusive brand Fifteen Roses. Shop online and in select stores; our stylists are eager to help you find the one!

Pro tip: Prior to dress shopping make sure to talk budget with your parents!

Discover the perfect pouf


Looking for that traditional princess look for your quinceañera? Add a ball gown slip, hoop or crinoline (or two!) underneath your dress to give you even more volume and added drama as you twirl on the dance floor

Add spectacular accessories

Once you’ve found your ultimate party dress accessorize it to the max with a tiara, jewelry, gloves & more! Start by finding a shimmering necklace and earring set. Add a touch of elegance to your birthday look by adding a pair of white satin gloves. A dazzling tiara completes your look and will compliment any hairstyle you choose!

Find the best shoe for la misa, el vals & dancing the night away


It’s no secret you’ll need a great pair of shoes to wear on your special day. Start off in a sparkly pair of flats or a pair of blinged-out sneakers! You can’t forget about a secondary pair of shoes for your changing of the shoes ceremony. We recommend a glimmering pair of block heels or wedges. Not only are these stylish options, but you’ll also be comfortable dancing all night long!

Fotos y recuerdos
