Top Quinceanera Trends (and Sweet 15s/16s)
If you’re planning to have a Quinceanera, Sweet 15 or Sweet 16 in the Austin, San Antonio, or central Texas area, or anywhere in the world, then you have probably noticed that there is far less information available for Quince planning than say, wedding planning. We’re not sure why, since Quinces happen every weekend, all year long! Fortunately, we’re here to help you by giving the planning tips and information that you need to plan your quinceanera!
End of 2021 Trends
As 2021 ended, more and more, we’re getting asked: “what are some new 2022 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, Texas 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 parties & events. We already have several events booked for 2022 (and a few 2021 events to go) and we’ve seen some great, new trends. Here are the top 3 Quinceanera trends we saw for late 2020 & now, in 2021 (we also included some of the 2020 trends for reference).
New Quinceanera Dresses!
2021/2022 Trend: Green Quinceanera Dresses
2022 Trends: Royal Blue Quinceanera Dress
Royal Blue quinceanera dresses are also part of the new 2022 Quinceanera trends! Also, if you haven’t noticed, quince dresses are also making their way to more than one night of 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! Reuse them and look like a fabulous princess, all over again! 🙂
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. Yes, we write as many helpful tips as possible. 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.

Beauty and the Beast & Other Disney Quince Themes
We also noticed that many Quinceaneras opted to have quince themes, which happened in 2021, but we’re seeing this as 2022 Quinceanera trends, too. These themes are paired with music from the theme or movie. We did many Quinces with a Beauty and the Beast theme, and a few with the Little Mermaid, theme, too (even a wedding).
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!
More Entertainment Options & Decor
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, and giant lighted marquee letter rentals. We’ve also added giant games, glow sticks and balloons, projector and screen (for slideshows and/or videos), and even now, Karaoke!
Additionally, many quinces will book a limo service or a party bus (who doesn’t want to arrive in style?), sparkler entrances and send-offs, (just like a wedding), and even choreographed father and daughter dances, and now, mother and daughter dances, too! Things are certainly changing and we’re loving these new 2022 Quinceanera trends & Quinceanera dresses!
