5 Tips to Plan a Stress-Free Quinceañera

Picture dancing beneath a sparkling ceiling of lights, your dress billowing elegantly around you. (Which you still need to buy, by the way). Your favorite people are smiling as they watch you take the spotlight. (Right. Send out the invitations, don’t forget). Everything is perfect. Now, just don’t think about how still need to practice this dance, gather the members of your court, and how do you even reserve a caterer? Planning a quince means you’ve got a lot to do. But don’t worry! Here at NOAH’S Event Venue, we want to help you pull off the night of your dreams without the stress. So keep that perfect picture in mind and let us help with some of the details. We’ve gathered some tips to make the planning process go smoothly. Stick with us and before you know it, you’ll be the belle of the ball.

 

Tip #1: Get Organized

The first thing you need to do is get organized. Trying to hold all of your quince plans in your mind is going to lead to nothing but headaches and sleepless nights. Do your sanity (and skin) a favor and get it all written down. Quinceneanera.com has a great app that can help you plan wherever you are. We also recommend creating a Quinceanera binder or folder on Google Drive with links to Pinterest boards or other websites. It may feel like homework at the beginning, but it’ll end up more fun, I promise. Create dividers for the various areas of your planning such as “Inspiration,” “Receipts,” “Guest List,” and anything else you can think of. Anytime you work on a particular section, make a note of what you did in your binder. Keeping everything organized in one place will make your planning life SO much easier and let you enjoy the process instead of dreading it.

Tip #2: Work Within Your Budget

Dealing with a budget may sound scary or frustrating, but being smart with your money is the best way to keep the planning process stress-free. Sit down with your family as soon as possible to have an honest conversation. Your parents will appreciate you being upfront, and remember to be understanding with the figure. You can pull off the quince of your dreams no matter the size of your budget.

 

Once you have a number, you can get to work on the planning. Make a list of the things that are the most important to you. The things that don’t make the cut are the areas where you can save some money by skipping them entirely or going with a better option. Remember, you’re going to have to make some sacrifices, just make sure that you aren’t making those sacrifices in the most important areas. One of the biggest items in your budget is your venue, and you will want to find an event space that will give you the most bang for your buck. Here at NOAH’S Event Venue, we offer beautifully-designed buildings that will look amazing no matter how much or how little you choose to dress them up. We can also help take some of the stress off your plate by setting up and taking down all of your tables and chairs, leaving you and your family to focus on the festivities while we handle the details.

 

Tip #3: Utilize Your Theme

What will your centerpieces look like? What kind of food will you serve? What will your court wear? It’s easy to feel a little directionless when it comes to all of these decisions. Giving your quince a theme is not only a great way to infuse your personality into your celebration, it will also make the planning process a lot easier. A theme will help you narrow down hundreds of options to just a few much more manageable decisions.

 

Make sure that you choose a venue that will allow you to bring in the things that will make your theme come to life. Here at NOAH’S, we have an open vendor policy. Basically, that just means that if you like a florist, DJ, caterer, photo booth or anyone else, you can bring them in! We also want to help you find the perfect people to pull it off, so we have gathered our preferred partners in our new magazine MOMENTS. Each issue will allow you to look through local options that will be perfect for you. To find yours, navigate to the location page for the closest NOAH’S Event Venue to you on our website. After that, just scroll to the bottom of the page.

Tip #4: Find the Perfect Space

You need an event center that will work well with your theme, look beautiful, and accommodate all of your guests for everything from dinner to dancing. It is never too early to start touring venues, and our friendly NOAH’S staff would love to show you why one of our buildings could be the perfect space for your celebration. Our rooms have a LOT to offer. One way to pamper yourself and your court is by reserving more than just the celebration space. This way you can gather everyone together in our dressing rooms to get ready in privacy and comfort or play some games in one of our party rooms. Our stunning ceiling options are a great way to make your Main Hall party unforgettable. You can feel like a princess beneath our spoke ceiling or dance the night away beneath our glimmering Edison bulbs.

 

Tip #5: Get Ahead on the Details

Even with the big things out of the way, there are still a ton of details left for your party. Don’t let that overwhelm you; it just means that you have lots of chances to personalize your big day. This should be fun, not stressful. However, you want to start working on those details as soon as possible so that they won’t pile up as your big day gets closer. The earlier you start thinking about what you are going to wear, how you will do your hair and makeup, how many guests you will invite, who will be in your court, the plan for your dances, and everything else, the better. Sit down and make a checklist of everything you need to do and break them up into month by month deadlines for each item; that way you have just a few things to focus on each month. With each item you cross off, give yourself a little reward and if you finish every item by the end of the month, take yourself out for ice cream or give yourself a night off from planning.

 

Planning a quince celebration should be fun, and we want to help you make it as stress-free and magical as possible. Stop by a NOAH’S Event Venue today to find out more about why we have the space and staff to help you have the perfect quince.
