Planning a quinceanera is an exciting time in your life. However, it can be an expensive event as well. If you need to save money and don’t want to cut too many corners, there are some ways you can cut your costs while still creating the party of a lifetime.
Choose a Reusable Dress
Chances are you will be attending your prom or going to a school dance in the near future. If that’s the case, make sure you choose a dress that can double as a dance dress as well. This will mean you don’t have to buy another in the future, saving you money.
Make Dollar Store Centerpieces
The centerpieces are a focal point for tables, but you don’t have to spend a lot of money on them. Pick up items from the dollar store and recruit family members to help you put them together. You can even involve your friends and make a party of it.
Talk to Family and Friends about Photos
Hiring a photographer and videographer may seem like a necessity, but you can still get amazing pictures and videos without one. Talk to family members or friends who may be interested in doing the job for you. You may also want to consider putting out disposable cameras for those unexpected candid shots.
Make Your Food
Chances are you have a lot of family members who are more than willing to help out with making dishes to share at your quinceanera. You can be in charge of making the main dishes and ask aunts, cousins, grandparents and other close relatives to make a side dish or dessert to share. Even if you cater the main dish, you can save a lot of money by making some of your own food.
Print Your Invitations
With all of the templates available online and invitation kits available at craft stores, you can quickly and easily make and print your own invitations to send out. Even if you have to buy a new printer cartridge, it will be significantly cheaper than ordering through a printer.
You don’t have to cut corners to save money on your quinceanera. Consider these tips to help bring costs down.
