Tips for Planning your Daughter's QuinceaÃ±era On a BudgetCarmen Ordonez
Quinceañeras can get pretty expensive, but with these simple tips you can easily throw your daughter 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 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.
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. You don’t need to spend a fortune on an amazing dress for your daughter. Be on the lookout for sales, David’s Bridal for example has some amazing Quinceañera dresses that will leave you looking stylish and fabulous without breaking the bank.
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.
With these simple tips, your daughter will have a Quinceañera party she will cherish forever.
