Quince and Sweet 16 Inspiring Themes!

Planning a quinceanera or Sweet 16 can be overwhelming.  And if it isn’t complicated enough, we know that young ladies are known to change their mind quite frequently. We’ve seen tons of Quinces andZebra Quince Sweet 16’s here, but we love to put a little spin on things, so here are some new and fun ideas for your upcoming event!

A big hit right now within Quince and Sweet 16 themes are animal prints. Zebra, leopard and giraffe prints are all the rage. Pairing the print with a bright color is a great way to show off youthful personality. Zebra with hot pink or turquoise/aqua is a big hit. Giraffe print with greens or pinks look nice. Even leopard with black and red really pops. You might want to consider adding as sash or hair piece with your print on your dress to really include the animal print in your theme. Incorporating feathers, boas and fringe can spruce up the décor.

Disney-themed parties are always up there in ideas when it comes to Quinces and Sweet 16’s. We’ve seen a lot of Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast themed Mulan themed Sweet 16parties and while they are incredibly beautiful, think about incorporating a newer princess. Maybe a Princess Jasmin and do an Aribian Night’s themed event with jewel-toned linens and magic lamp centerpieces. Even an Ariel-themed event with beachy-décor and your true Prince Eric as your escort or date. You don’t even have to be a red-head to pull it off. Ariel dresses can be in a blush pink, emerald green or white and make your lighting blue so that guests feel like they are truly under the sea! Lastly, a Mulan-themed event with Asian-inspired décor (we even have the perfect red linens with gold chair covers to pull this theme off!). A Princess theme will always be in style.

Why not try a Great Gatsby themed event? With the movie coming out TODAY, it is the perfect time to try something completely different than all of your friends! We love the idea of guests dressed up in 1920’s attire and you can wear a nice ball gown in, but change into your own flapper dress for the dance! If you are really into the theme, you can even add a murder-mystery dinner component to the event. Hang lanterns from our patio area and have guests sip sparkling cider instead of your usual soda or juice. Have fun feathered or boa décor throughout and maybe even use lamps as centerpieces!

Just remember that the sky is the limit when it comes to ideas, but always consider your parent’s budget. Take a look at Pinterest for more inspiration: http://www.pinterest.com/plazalecea

Even if you don’t wear makeup on a regular basis, it’s important to have some on your wedding day as you will be taking a lot of photos and you’ll want to look your best. Just a little cover up, blush and lip gloss goes a long way if you are not comfortable with a complete look. Another note is to make sure you do a trial run before your big day (the day of your bridal shower would be perfect so you don’t have to worry about doing your makeup for the event and you’ll get to show it off to family and friends who will give you their opinion of how it looks). It’s important to do this so you will be comfortable with someone else doing your makeup if you haven’t had it done before and you’ll also be able to give the makeup artist feedback as to what you like and don’t like before the big day.

If you are comfortable with your hair stylist, ask them if they specialize in up-dos or wedding-day styles as some only prefer to cut or color hair. If they do, use them as you already know them. Ask for photo references if they have any or any suggestions for styles as they know your hair and see a lot of styles on a regular basis. Also schedule a run-though as well!
