Catholic Items Essential for Your Quinceañera Ceremony


Here are some essential Catholic items a quinceañera should have on her special day.

Although this celebration is customary among Hispanic families, any girl can celebrate a Quinceañera following the tradition. A Quinceañera can be both a religious and a social event. A traditional Catholic celebration includes a Mass known as "The Blessing of the Quince Years," which takes place in a Catholic church followed by a social reception.

These are some of the religious items that are customary in a Quinceañera:

  1. Tiara or Crown
The tiara or crown a quinceañera wears on her head on the day of her Quince represents how God sees her. The crown symbolizes and declares that she is a princess, the daughter of God because He is the king.

  1. Two Bouquets of Flowers
A quinceañera should bring two bouquets on the day of her party. One natural and one artificial; the natural one should be offered to the Virgin Mary, and the artificial one is kept by the quinceañera as a souvenir, unless she prefers a natural bouquet.

  1. Bible and Rosary
The Bible and rosary represent the quinceañera's faith with the Catholic Church. Typically, these religious items can be blessed by the priest with holy water.
