3. Planning the Ceremony and Reception

A Quinceañera traditionally includes a ceremony, often with a religious component, followed by a festive reception. Here’s a checklist for both:


  • Religious Service: If applicable, book a church or use our on-site ceremony space.
  • Court of Honor: Choose your damas and chambelanes to form the court.
  • Dress and Attire: The quinceañera dress, as well as dresses and suits for the court.


  • Grand Entrance: Make a memorable entrance with your court.
  • First Dance: Practice and choreograph your special father-daughter dance.
  • Dinner and Toasts: Plan the menu and speeches.
  • Crowning Ceremony: Present the tiara as a symbol of the transition to adulthood.
  • Surprise Dance: Organize a fun, upbeat dance with your court.
