Shopping for your quinceanera dress is one of the most exciting things on your to-do list but it’s also one of the most stressful, especially if you’re the indecisive type-of-girl or you’re easily swayed by others opinions.
Good thing we’re here to help you stay on track! Here are 5 signs to know with certainty if your quinceanera dress is the one.
1. It matches your personality and theme
Sometimes we can’t get over a gown that we saw in a magazine but you have to ask yourself if it goes with your theme and the atmosphere of your party. For example, a quinceanera dress that’s heavily blinged out from head to toe will not go with a vintage theme. You would be better off choosing a delicate lace quinceanera dress.
2. You love the dress regardless of what others think
Your mom’s input is valuable but at the end of the day, it’s you who’s going to wear it and create lifelong memories. Sometimes you just have to go with your heart even though it wasn’t your mom’s favorite pick. If you fall in love with a dress, go for it! But if you feel the need to keep asking if it looks good, maybe it’s not the dress for you.
3. You’re choosing it for the right reasons
You may feel pressured to choose a dress just because it’s on sale for the holiday weekend or your sister loves it. If it doesn’t feel right, you need to see more options. Don’t rush your decision!
4. You are comfortable in the dress
You’ll be eating, dancing, posing for the camera the entire day so you definitely don’t want a dress that you can’t move around in. Take into consideration the fabric and the fit. A quinceanera dress that you have to be constantly pulling up and made with an itchy fabric will only make you miserable the entire day!
5. You know all your options
Explore your options! The worst thing that you could do is settle for a dress that you thought looked “okay” and then fall in love with a dress that you casually saw at a boutique afterward. Shop around, browse through the internet for ideas, and don’t be afraid to try on as many dresses as you desire.
