Tips for Planning Your Daughter’s Quinceanera

Just like weddings, Quinceaneras are large events often attended by 150 to 300 people. Because of this, many choose to have their event organized by a professional event planner. For some people who are on a budget, however, planning a Quinceanera should be done on their own.

If you are planning your daughter’s Quinceanera, here are some tips on how you can make the event a success:

Best Time to Start Planning
When you’re planning a Quinceanera, the best time to start doing it is ten to twelve months before the event. Since these events are important, it is best to be thorough with the plans instead of just letting them run on their own. Otherwise, you may end up with more costs to pay.

Get Help
While you may not have the budget to hire a planner, you can still have your immediate family members help you with the planning. The first thing you have to establish, however, is when the Quinceanera will take place. After that, you will have to determine how much your budget for the event is.

Once you have determined how much the budget for the Quinceanera is, you can already start looking for a venue, musician, caterer, and the decorations for the party. You can also check out our upcoming Bridal & Quinceanera Showplace on February 1, 2014. This is the best place where you can get all the help you need in planning your daughter’s Quinceanera.

Nowadays, a photo booth has become a part of weddings. In fact, there are plenty of couples that ensure they will have a photo booth for their wedding before making any other plans. Since this is something that wedding guests enjoy, they see to it that they can book a photo booth rental for their big day.

Browse through their samples
One of the best ways you can find a good photo booth company is to look at their previous clients. This is something that you can use to help you in making your decision because you can pick out a company that can provide quality service.

Ask for the type of service they offer
There are some photo booth companies that do not provide manpower in operating the camera. Make sure that when you are choosing a photo booth provider, you pick out someone that can provide you the type of service you need for your big day.

Check what props and special effects they provide
One reason why photo booths have become an enjoyable addition to weddings is because of the number of props they provide during the event. Your guests will enjoy getting photographed with the numerous props. Make sure you already have an idea of what props and special effects the photo booth company can provide for your wedding day.

Finding the Right Bridal Party Gift

As part of tradition, you should give out gifts to your bridesmaids either before or after your wedding. This tradition has long been practiced as a way of letting your bridesmaids know how thankful you are that they took part of such an important role in your wedding. Because it is a token of your appreciation, you should be careful in choosing the right gift to give your bridesmaids.

So how do you find the right gift for your bridesmaids? Here are some tips to remember:

Consider their interests
Because your bridesmaids are usually your friends, you already have an idea of who they are and what their interests are. A good gift to give them would be something that embodies their personality. If your friends are into reading, you can get them customized book bags they can store their books into when they travel.

Choose something functional
Another tip in finding the right gift for your bridesmaids is to go for something functional—this means that she can wear the item more than once. A good tip here would be matching robes that they can wear.

Get something that signifies your friendship
You may also go for a friendship band to help signify your bond with your bridesmaids. This way, you get to let them know how appreciative you are of their friendship with you.

As the bride, you can choose to give out similar gifts to each of your bridesmaids. This way, it can symbolize your wedding day and they will remember it forever. Make sure that when you give your bridesmaids a gift, you include a personalized thank you note. Find a gift that they will love and you’ll be happy you decided to!

You can also attend the upcoming Bridal & Quinceanera Showplace on February 2, 2014 at Embassy Suites, Los Angeles-Downey, 8425 Firestone Blvd., Downey. You might find the bridal party gift that you can give out to your friends along with other vendors for your big day!

Why Should You Attend a Bridal Show?

During December, the number of newly engaged couples increased. While this is nothing out of ordinary, it still is good to see that December lives up to its title of engagement month. But now that December is over, it’s time to give way for bridal show season! If you were among those who got engaged during the previous month, it’s time you prepare for your wedding by attending one of these shows.

So why should you join a bridal show? What do you stand to gain from attending them? Here are a few advantages you can get when you attend a bridal show:

You Save Your Time
One of the best reasons why you should attend a bridal show is that it is a venue where you can find all the vendors that you will need for your big day. As a result, you don’t have to waste any time finding a wedding vendor that can cater to each of your needs. If you are thinking of having a DIY wedding, this is the best way you can meet all your potential wedding vendors.

You Get a Lot of Freebies
A benefit that you can get when you attend a bridal show is that the wedding vendors are always giving away something. Whether it’s something small like a pen, or extravagant like a free overnight hotel accommodation, you’re sure to get something from the event.

You Save Money
Apart from getting freebies from the wedding vendor, you also get to save your money. Since all the vendors are located in one venue, you no longer have to spend extra money on gas. At the same time, a bridal show can help you save money since there are some wedding vendors that give out discounts to attendees of the event. You can really get to save money with the discounts that they offer.

You Learn New Things
Finally, when you attend a bridal show, you get exposed to the latest trends in the wedding industry. Apart from that, you get to meet new people who may be able to help you in the long run. If you don’t consider yourself a crafty person, attending a bridal show will help inspire you to think outside the box. You can really get a lot of new ideas when you attend these events.

Make sure you set your calendar for the next bridal show in your area. If you missed yesterday’s Bridal Show & David Tutera event, you can simply visit our website for updates on the next show. You can really benefit a lot from attending one of our bridal shows!
