A very important celebration in Latin American culture is the quinceañera. It’s a celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday – marking her passage into womanhood.
Quinceanera honors not only the young woman for her maturity, but also her parents and family. The godparents also play important roles during the ceremony.
The day begins with mass to give thanks. The young woman is seated at the foot of the church altar, in a beautiful formal dress. The godparents have bestowed her with special gifts – including jewelry – to accent the dress. The young woman is accompanied by her damas (maids of honor) and chambelanes (escorts) – these are often siblings, relatives or friends. Upon completion of the mass, the young woman leaves a bouquet of flowers to the Virgen de Guadalupe. Her female siblings and friends then distribute gifts of remembrance to all the guests assembled in the church. After this portion of the ceremony is done, it’s time for photographs, and then… it’s time to party!
This isn’t just any old birthday party. Far more goes into a Quinceañera. Make it all that more special by planning ahead! Once you know the venue, have the flowers and the dress, don’t forget to reserve the luxury limo! Hummer H2 Super Stretch Limos, Cadillac Escalade Super Stretch Limos, and Chrysler 300 Stretch Limos are popular typical choices. Limo / Party Buses are also available for even larger parties.
