Sweet 15 is a major milestone in a girl’s life—a long-established celebration all over the world. As a time-honored tradition for girls, planning this celebration takes a great deal of planning. The attention to rich culture and tradition is important and many celebrate it differently. Adding a little extra must fit your taste and that of your family’s customs. The beginnings of Quinceañera go way back to the combining of Christianity, the Aztec religion and lifestyle when the Spanish conquered the Aztec Indians in the 1500’s. It is still popular amongst the Hispanics in Mexico, the United States, South America and in other Spanish-speaking countries.
This special celebration marks the beginning of womanhood as she “comes out” to be presented to society. Tradition places additional responsibilities on the young woman after her Quinceañera such as household duties, family needs, work, volunteerism, or even marriage. While a great deal of attention is placed on the party and the celebration, the basic belief is for the young woman to live a life of faith, good moral principles, devotion to her community and live a wholesome lifestyle. The ceremony is value and moral centered. Like the milestone markers of birth, baptism, and confirmation, the Quinceanera gives thanks to God.
Spiritual reverence is important for some families planning this event. They also have the duty to assist with the financial costs of the event along side the godparents and other special friends and family members.
Decide who will be members of your court. Fourteen couples (one for each year of your life) are chosen. Fourteen Damas (maids of honors) and fourteen chamberlanes (chamberlains) may include family members and/or close friends. You might also consider having flower girls to scatter rose petals or to carry a basket of flowers. Visit the pages through this site for planning tips & ideas.
