Q : WHERE DO I START ? What is the average budget for a Quinceañera ?
A : STARTING TO PLAN YOUR QUINCEAÑERA MAY FEEL OVERWHELMING , but the most important part is to decide the size of the party . The first thing you want to do is choose the venue or location of the party ! Then you can start to think of your theme , dress , guest list , and food . Entertainment and photography will come after that . A good time to start planning would be 12-18 months prior . Once the venue is booked look into getting your dress , caterers , photographers , floral arrangements , makeup artists , etc . The average budget depends on how much you would want to spend . On average in the US , a Quinceañera can cost anywhere from $ 5,000 - $ 20,000 . There are many ways to make your Quinceañera your style and the party of your dreams on a budget !
