2019 Quinceanera Trends
If you're planning a Quinceanera, Sweet 15 or Sweet 16 in the Austin, San Antonio, or central Texas area, or anywhere, then you have probably noticed that there is far less information available for Quince planning, than say, wedding planning. Fortunately, we're here to help!
As 2019 is just beginning, more and more, we're getting asked "what are some new, 2019 quinceanera trends that you're seeing?" Every year, we see different trends, and often, similar trends from the prior, but slight variations of the previous quince trends. As the leading provider of Austin and central Texas Quinceanera DJs and Austin photo booth rentals, (including sweet 15/16s, school dances, fundraisers and proms), we get to be a part of numerous Quinces & sweets, and we get to work with a lot of great teens! We also help many families plan their events. We already have several events booked for 2019 and we've seen some trends. Here are the top 3 trends we're seeing for 2019 (we also included some of the 2018 trends for reference).
1. New Quinceanera Dress Colors!
For most quinces and sweets, we usually see the more traditional pastel colors and lighter colors, like Pink, Tiffany Blue, Emerald Green and often Red. For 2018 events, we noticed changes to these traditional colors. More people broke the traditions and went with new, different colors! We saw more Burgundy theme colors really taking over! Darker colors definitely made their way into many quinces, in 2018. New dress colors are were trending, especially Rose Gold and Mariachi style Quince dresses! Here are some pictures below of those dresses. They'll still look great for your 2019 quince!
2019 Trend: Green Quinceanera Dresses
For 2019 quinces, these colors are changing, again! What we're seeing now, is newer, fresh colors. Green quinceanera dresses are making their way into 2019 quinces and sweets. There are different variations of the green dresses, such as a Mint Green dress, Turquoise, and even Lime Green dresses!
2019 Trends: Royal Blue Quinceanera Dress
Royal Blue quince dresses are also the new trend! Also, if you haven't noticed, quince dresses are also making their way to more than one night the quinceanera's life: Prom! As Austin's favorite school dance DJs, we provide prom DJs and photo booth rentals for many Austin and central Texas proms. We see many young ladies with similar dresses that look like they could be a quince dress, and well, why not? Who says you can't wear these dresses to prom? We love it! :)
Also, if your guests aren't sure about the quince attire, be sure to have them check out our article, what to wear to a quinceanera. Here are some of the Royal Blue dresses and of course, last year's trend, tied with this year's color, in the picture on the right.
2. Beauty and the Beast & Other Disney Themes
We also noticed that many Quinceaneras opted to have themes, paired with music from the theme. We did many Quinces with a Beauty and the Beast theme. Sometimes, the Chambelan de Honor (the Quinceanera's escort) even dressed up exactly like the beast, with a Beast mask/headpiece! It was awesome! We played most of the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack, as well, for the different ceremonies.
Other Quinces are also discussing other Disney movie themes, like Cinderella, The Little Mermaid (the court is even dressing up as characters from the movie), and Frozen!
3. More Entertainment Options & Decor
We're noticing that more and more Quinces and sweets are choosing to go "all-out" and add as many options as they can. As we previously stated, Quinces and sweets are like weddings, but for 15 year olds, now. Most Quinces are planned 12-18 months in advance, and have many of the same options. From us, they'll now add a photo booth, uplighting, a personalized monogram, giant lighted marquee letter rentals, giant games, glow sticks and balloons, projector and screen (for slideshows and/or videos) and even now, Karaoke!
Additionally, many quinces will have limo service or a party bus, sparkler entrances/send-offs, and even choreographed father/daughter and now, mother/daughter dances, too! Things are changing for 2019 and we're excited!
