You spend hours searching through magazines, visiting boutiques, and surfing online for the perfect Quinceanera dress.
As much as you loved wearing your carefully selected gown, the one-time work and current live-in space that it takes in the back of your closet, does not serve it any justice.
Make your Quince dress’ lifetime last longer than just one night:
Keep it in the family
Whether it is property, china wear, jewelry or your grandpa’s old machete, family heirlooms are cherished from generation to generation. Certainly no different can be expected from your quince dress, so store away your quince gown as orderly as possible and pass it on to the next quince in the family.
If the style of your quince dress is not of their liking, you can still keep it stored away for other quinceañeras to come. More so, when the day comes that you celebrate the quinceanera of your daughter, you can offer this wonderful momentum to them as their special coming of age gift.
Pass it on to a Quinceanera in need
There are countless Quinceaneras that due to financial needs are unable to have an XV celebration.
To this, organizations that encourage girls to donate their gowns to less fortunate teens are establishing themselves all throughout the United States and can be found by doing a simple Google search for “donating my quince dress”.
A quince gown donation on your behalf can help make underprivileged Quinceaneras’ dreams come true by alleviating some of that financial hardship and by spreading the gift of giving to other teens as well.
But if you come across a financial situation yourself, you may want to consider selling your dress to the highest bidder.
Sites like eBay and Craigslist make it easier than ever to sell and buy your dress online.
Although you may not receive your complete investment, you will definitely make way into some extra cash that can go into a savings account or into paying off some of your quince debt.
