Quinceanera Planning Warning!

Photography: Marco Vinicio

A young Latina”s 15th birthday is for sure the most anticipated birthday of her life. A time that as Latinos we traditionally celebrate the quinceanera that is a beautiful and memorable time between the parents and daughters. The reality is that the planning stage can also be a very stressful time, especially for a mom who typically takes the role of the quinceanera planner. Below are some warning signs that indicate your mom needs a break from quinceanera planning.

1- Everything she talks about with everyone revolves around the quince party.

2- She has not socialized with friends, since the planning started.

3- Working more/getting a second job because she has spent too much money.

4- She is not herself anymore; she is irritable and cranky all the time.

5- You are not enjoying the planning time, instead you are constantly disagreeing.

No worries, we have the following suggestions for stress-free quinceanera planning.

1- Make a pact with your parents and set aside some time weekly or daily as time gets closer to discuss the quinceanera to-do list.

2- Encourage your parents to go out on date night at least once a week or for mom to have a girl’s night with friends.

3- Be reasonable with the services and product you selected and make sure that it is affordable. Be grateful, say thank you, and prepare a hot bubble bath for her.

4- Be organized with all your notes, guest lists, contracts, etc. Relief her with tasks that you can do, like communicating directly with your court with rehearsals, fitting, etc.

5- My 15 interactive planner, is highly recommended to register here on our site, this way your parents can also enjoy the party.
