Quinceañera Ceremony in Houston TX


 

The ceremony is an often overlooked part of a Houston quinceañera.  But it truly is the most important part.  Once a family know the date of you 15, they reserve their church 10 months in advance to avoid any conflict.  They also make arrangements with the priest to ensure his availability.

Dressed up in their stunning 15 dresses, Houston girls go through this traditional rite of passage looking like princesses.  There are many different parts of this ceremony which typically lasts half an hour.  Then a quince años party follows where there is dancing, eating, and socializing.  The tradition dates back to the 15th century Aztecs.
