Quinceanera is one of the most important moments in a woman’s life. For Latina girls, it’s a rite of passage. The entire family celebrates this event, showing their joy and support.
This special day comes at a price. The average family spends $15,000 to $20,000 on dresses, food, and party decorations.
To cut costs, write your own Quinceanera invitations. This will show your guests how much you value their presence in your life. Why you spend hundreds of dollars on something you can do yourself?
Here are some handy tips on how to word your Quinceanera invitations for maximum impact:
Consider Your Guests
First of all, decide how formal you want the invitation to be. Think about your guests. Are you to have a large party or just a small family reunion?
If you’re expecting hundreds of guests, stick to a formal language. For small parties, use a friendly language. Remember to add a sweet personal message.
Also, determine whether you should use English or Spanish. Keep your guests in mind. Eventually, you can write two versions – one for your American friends and one for Spanish guests.
Craft the Host Line
Next, include the name of the hosts. Who is organizing the event? Is it a single parent, both parents, or a legal guardian?
For instance, if the party is hosted by a single parent, your introductory line could look like this:
Mrs. (host name) and family request the honor of your presence to the 15th birthday of (Quinceanera’s name), our beloved daughter.
To make the Quinceanera’s name stand out, use italic fonts or a bigger size font.
Include the Event Information
Continue with the holy mass and reception information. Make sure you include:
- Date and time of the event
- Church address
- Venue name and address
- Dinner and reception times
If you wish, ask your guests can confirm their presence by email, phone, or text. RSVP cards may be too formal.
Remember to list the chamberlain of honor, the Damas, and the chamberlains. Quinceanera invitations must also include the names of your godparents.
Choosing the Best Wording for Quinceanera Invitations
Composing meaningful wording is often the hardest part. Fortunately, there are no set rules on what to write. Do what feels right in your heart.
For instance, you can compose verses or use Bible verses. Add them below the host line.
If you want to keep things simple, add a few lines that express your joy. Say how grateful you are for being able to spend these wonderful moments with your loved ones.
Let your guests know how much you appreciate them and what their presence means to you. Tell them that your joy will be complete if they can attend this special day.
Add special touches, such as your photo, custom envelopes, or personalized photo stamps. Choose a unique theme for your invitations, such as black and white or Candyland.
Finding the perfect invitation wording doesn’t have to be a chore. Write from your heart and add a touch of personality.
Your guests will be busy admiring your Quinceanera dress rather than thinking what you wrote.
