Quinceañera is one of the most exciting times in a Latina young Lady’s life.

The centerpiece of this occasion is, of course, your dress.

All eyes will be on you. You have to have the dress of your dreams that will make you feel like a princess.

That’s a lot of pressure! How will you find the perfect dress?

Picking the right Quinceañera dress is a hard decision. That’s why we’ve created this complete guide to Quinceañera dresses.

Have an idea of what you’re looking for before you start shopping

Buy some magazines that showcase prom and Quinceañera dresses. Spend an afternoon getting to know what you like and don’t like in a dress.

You can pull pages from the magazines or print pictures from the internet. Keep them all in a folder so you can easily look back at them.

Don’t be afraid to consider a few different styles. Don’t count out too many options.

Before you go out and shop, come up with a few keywords that describe the dresses you’re looking for. That way when a salesperson wants to pull gowns for you, you’ll know exactly what to say.

Once you have an idea of what you’re looking for, you’re almost ready to start shopping.

Know your budget before you get started

Quinceañera dresses vary in price range, so make sure you speak to your Mom or Madrina on how much they are willing to spend before starting your shopping. When it comes to the dress, make sure you have an idea of what the budget is.

When you shop, make sure the salesperson knows what your budget is. Tell them not to show you anything that goes over.

There’s nothing worse than trying on your dream dress only to find out you can’t afford it. You also don’t want anyone pressuring you into buying something too expensive.

Now that everyone’s clear on the price point, you can start trying on Quinceañera dresses!

Try on different styles and colors of dresses

It’s important to see as many options as possible. Another great thing about trying on a variety of dresses is you can get a feel of what looks right on you.

If you see a dress with a color that interests you, try it on even if you don’t like the style. You might find out that Coral makes your skin look amazing.

Similarly, if you hate details of a dress, but you’re curious about the cut, try it on. Getting to know what looks good on you is important for buying this dress and dresses in the future.

You should also keep an open mind. Agreeing to try on a dress doesn’t mean you have to get it. Sometimes a dress that looks so-so on the rack ends up looking amazing on you.

Obviously, this is all going to take some time. Leave the day open so you don’t feel rushed. Enjoy the experience!
