At Carriage Greens, we offer a gorgeous setting for any party. Our Lemont wedding venue specializes in baby showers, wedding showers, holiday parties, weddings, graduation parties, and we have successfully hosted plenty of quinceañeras as well! When it comes to planning the perfect quinceañera, the earlier you begin planning, the better. If you or anyone you know is planning to host a quinceañera soon, consider following some of these tips.
Choose a Theme or Symbol
Making decisions relating to the party can be the most difficult part of the planning process. If you choose a theme or symbol at the beginning of your planning process, it will help you solidify your decor, food, colors, etc. with ease. Some great theme ideas include Paris, mariachi, masquerade, princess, and plenty more!
Set Your Budget Early – and Stick to It
It’s easy to get wrapped up in the excitement of an extravagant party, but be sure to keep your budget in mind when making decisions along the way. At the end of the day, this celebration is really about celebrating with your family and friends.
Consider a Children’s Area or Babysitter
If your guest list includes a large number of children 10 years or younger, consider hiring a babysitter to watch them during the ceremony. Another great way to keep these guest occupied is to set up a children’s table featuring coloring tools, toys, games, and other kid-friendly activities.
Be Mindful of Dietary Restrictions
Keep in mind that when hosting parties of a larger size, there’s a good chance that a few guests may have dietary restrictions. Be sure to check with your vendor or caterer to make sure they are able to accommodate those who are gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, or have different allergies. At our Lemont wedding venue at Carriage Greens, we are well-equipped to handle a variety of dietary restrictions! Feel free to discuss any specifics with our Banquets Director.
Don’t Forget Thank You Notes!
Be sure to place as much importance on your thank you notes as your invitations. A great time to write your thank-you notes is the day after the quinceanera, while your memory is still fresh.
