A Quinceañera is the Hispanic tradition of celebrating a young girl's "coming
of age". These celebrations embrace religious customs as well as the virtues of family and social
responsibility. The Quinceanera tradition celebrates the young girl (la Quinceanera), and recognizes her journey from childhood to maturity, highlighting the customs of God, family, friends,
music, food, and dance. This
type ceremony is not limited to the Hispanic culture alone. Many families today are merging their Hispanic and American heritages
by choosing to celebrate a Sweet Sixteen. During a Sweet 16 party the families do the full-blown quinceanera traditions;
the religious ceremony, the reception, the tiara with the number 16, and so much more. Families are encouraged to select the
customs that have special meaning to them and to add to the customs anything they wish. This is what makes the celebration
Your daughter's 16th birthday marks a very special milestone in her life and holding a Sweet 16 Ceremony can make
it even more so. Having a ceremony such as this is a great opportunity for your daughter to celebrate with family, friends
and everyone who means the most to her. The occasion is special, it gives meaning to her life and generates some of the most
precious memories she will ever experience.
There are many ways
I can write your daughter's ceremony but generally, including a candle ceremony is a big part of any Sweet 16 Birthday Party.
The candle lighting occurs after dinner and cake have been served and is often one of the greatest highlights of the
event. It is at this moment when your "birthday girl" has the opportunity to share her feelings about the most important people in her life as she lights a candle
for each of them. Traditionally, a total of 16 candles are used to represent each year of the girls life to that point. As
she lights each of the candles, your family and guests will get an insight into your daughter's soul and all the wonderful
things that make her the special person she is. I will gather information from you, put your thoughts into words and write
a ceremony that says everything you want it to and when the big day comes, I will do everything within my power to make it
a real tribute to your daughter and all that she stands for.
A girl's sweet
16 only comes along only once in her life, so it's important to make the day as special as possible. That doesn't necessarily
mean that the party has to cost a fortune. It just means that great care should be taken to make sure she's surrounded by
the people who love her most, and that those who are the most important to her are there to celebrate with her and let her
know how much she is loved.
I would love the opportunity to help you celebrate your daughter's
special day and look forward to the possibility of working with you to make her 16th Birthday truly memorable!
