If you’re in the planning process of your quinceanera, and have not decided on a theme, today let’s talk about a masquerade theme for your quinceanera. Of course the first thing that goes into mind is masks, but don’t forget that feathers go into this theme also.
There are many types of masks available, many very expensive, since they are handmade. You can also buy them blank or plain white and paint them yourself adding a special color of your theme. It would be a cool project to do.
I have not really seen any masquerade dresses, I have seen zebra pattern dresses but not masquerade.
Masquerade Quinceanera Invitations
I love these invitations, since the background color can be personalized to any color, and the black mask looks very nice. When looking for quinceanera invitations I always like something different and unique.
Any masquerade theme is not finish with a little something extra as decorations, of course you can have masks, but masks are sometimes only used for the dances.
You can incorporate something on the cake, since the cake is a very important focus point in your party. You can also have a little collage of masquerade theme for your pictures, just a little space where you can take pictures.
Another good idea is to have some masks for the waiters and staff. At the entrance of your reception you can give out some inexpensive plastic masks also.
This is the perfect time to plan your quinceanera invitations. A good rule of thumb is to order your invitations as early as possible. It is not wise to give the invites at the very last week, why? Well you will probably get cheap regalos, give your guest some time to think what to give you, he he he.. Believe it or not it works. A very good idea for your invitations is to have a Regalos Wish List. People do it on wedding so why do it on your quinceanera. This list can be included on your invitation, how cool will that be.
This will be my Regalos Wish List:
Ok, ok enough about dreams. Let’s go back to invitations, have your chambelanes and damas write their name correctly on your notebook, this will save many mistakes later on. Write your reception hall address, and building name. Many people get to your party via GPS, and having the whole address on your quinceanera invitations rocks, believe me you will save your dad at least 20 calls to his cell phone. Also write the church complete address, same story here. If possible double check the address with a gps or google. I have seen churches with wrong addresses on their own web site. And also don’t forget to write what kind of street it is like: St., Street, Ave, Lane, Ln, Road, Rd
It seems like common sense but if you’re not used to writing addresses then you might overlook these details. And believe it or not all you’re gonna give the addresses to everybody: Guests, photographer, videographer, choreographer, dj, bakery, catering, well everybody. Having the correct addresses on a paper really helps, and why not your invitations.
Do you want your quinceanera invitations with or without your photo? Many quinceaneras even put their dresses on and take their picture for the invitations. Many quinceaneras don’t want to show the dress before the actual sweet 15 party. I have seen invitations with the pictures of the chambelanes, of course these are home made invitations. This looks cool but takes more work, but not impossible.
The traditional verse for your invitations:
El Sr. Jorge Rojas y Maria Rojas
tienen el honor de invitarlo a Usted y a su
Apreciable familia a la celebracion de los
Quince Años de su hija
Este 4 de julio del 2010
a las cuatro de la tarde
en la iglesia
“Nuestra Sra. de Los Caminos”
123 Main St., Greensboro, SC
Recepcion a las 6:00 p.m.
en el salon
1254 spring garden st, Greensboro, SC
This is the most used verse for your quinceanera invitations . So another question that girls have is, Do we put the two last names. Many quinceaneras just put one, but it is up to you and your parents. On some invitations even the last name is left out, so basically anything goes.
