Of course, she must be scouting through the website and the magazines to come up with new ideas every now and then. And obviously, you are finding it difficult to keep up with her fervor for organizing the first big party as well as enjoying it too when your baby girl has grown into an amazing woman. So, while you are organizing the whole event, I am sure your daughter is also giving her inputs and suggestions too. It is definitely a good idea to include her in the planning since it is the first biggest celebration of her life. However, only depending on her for suggestions and outputs can cause some mistakes too.
Yes, your little girl is way too excited about inviting her friends, planning her dress and daydreaming about the party of Houston Quinceanera. That is why you, my dear parent, need to be extra cautious and practical in terms of the budget, the hall, and the facilities that you should look for, the food and beverages and the guest’s lists and their priorities. While doing so many things together, it is natural that you might become overwhelmed and end up committing some mistakes that can ruin the Quinceanera party for your daughter. So, here I am going to tell you what obvious mistakes you must avoid in order to plan a grand Quinceanera that you young lady is going to remember forever. Take a look.
Not Planning a Budget
The first and foremost thing that you have to think about while planning the party for your girl is to plan the budget. When you have been planning to arrange an amazing party for her, she is surely saving from her pocket money too to make the day memorable. It is better that you should sit with her and talk about the budget so that you two have a clear idea and you know what to expect. If you ignore planning the budget clearly, then you might face serious issues.
Not Supervising the Guest List
Well, your daughter is now overjoyed and it is natural if she wants to each and everyone she knows to invite for the party. But you are supposed to act realistically here. Make sure you are having a serious discussion on the guest list too. For that talk about the budget and make sure she gets to prioritize the list of guests so that it makes her happy as well as fits within your budget too. Ignoring this will burn a huge hole in your pocket for sure.
Not Making Sure the Hall is Spacious
When you are booking the venue for the Quinceanera, make sure you are booking a space that can easily and comfortably accommodate all guests of yours. This will depend on the meticulous implementation of the previous two steps. If you have a clear idea about the budget as well as the number of guests are invited, you will be able to find the right venue right away. Generally, the wedding venues in Houston are all available for Quinceanera too. So, it won’t be difficult to find a spacious hall. However, knowing the aforementioned factors will make the search easier and appropriate.
Not Checking Extra Perks of the Venues
Different party venues offer different types of perks that help you to make the arty even more happening. Ignoring the perks will be not only stupid since you might get them in a good package deal but will also drain your money like anything. So, while booking the venues, look for services like DJ, Cakes and caterings and limousine services. If you get any or all within an attractive package, then go for it without much hesitation.
So, now as you know about the mistakes you must steer clear from that can ruin the Quinceanera, what are you waiting for? Start your planning today!
