Every Latin American girl dreams of their quinceañera. This once-in-a-lifetime celebration marks their transition from childhood to womanhood on their 15th birthday, making it one of their most exciting endeavors. Planning a quinceañera requires an extensive checklist and should start as early as possible, at least 18-24 months before their birthday date.
