Today, just as in the past, a quinceanera is the celebration of a young girl's transition into womanhood at the age of 15. It has cultural roots in Latin America, but is now commonly celebrated throughout the Americas. As far back as 500 B.C., Aztec culture marked the age of 15 as the time that boys became warriors and young ladies were ready to be mothers of future warriors.
Times have changed, and instead of considering a girl an adult at 15, it is viewed as her no longer being a child, but but entering young adulthood. She is ready for certain privileges associated with womanhood that she is now considered mature enough to handle.
Quinceanera gowns were at one time commonly white, similar to a wedding dress, without the train or veil. Today, they are available in a rainbow of gorgeous colors. The style is formal with a very full skirt, but our South Florida quinceanera dress shop also carries convertible gowns that the skirt can be removed from for a less formal look.
When your 14-year-old begins searching for the perfect quinceanera dress, let the color be influenced by her personality and personal style. After all, this celebration is all about her reaching an age where she is old enough to make more grown-up decisions. With the wide variety of choices available, there are sure to be many colors that you can both agree on.
