If you're planning a Quinceanera, Sweet 15 or Sweet 16 in the Austin/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 the leader in our Austin and central Texas Quinceanera, Sweet 15/16 and school events (dances, fundraisers and proms), we get to be a part of numerous Quinces and sweets! We also help many families plan their events. We already have several events booked for 2018 and we've seen some trends. Here are the top 3 trends we're seeing for 2018.
1. Burgundy Theme 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're noticing changes. More people are breaking the traditions and going with new, different colors! We're seeing Burgundy really taking over! Gold is another color that is often paired with it. So the newer trend is darker colors, instead of lighter colors!
Jason, ABDJ's co-owner and founder, is a graduate (Master's of Education) from Texas State University, and those happen to be TX State's colors! We promise that we're not influencing these color decisions. :) Diana, ABDJ's other co-owner, is a University of Texas graduate (Master's of Social Work) and swears the trending theme colors are Burnt Orange and White! (UT Austin colors) :)
2. Beauty and the Beast & Other Disney Themes
We're also noticing that Quinceaneras are now opting to have themes, paired with music from the theme. We recently did a Quince with a Beauty and the Beast them. 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 and a personalized monogram, game systems and 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 2018 and we're excited!
