Quinceanera dresses are, basically, ballgowns. A ballgown is tight fitting through the bodice and the flows into a floor length full skirt. A ball gown is very formal and is appropriate as a prom dress or a quinceanera gown. Typically there are layers of crinoline or tulle in the skirt but the focus is really on the waistline. This is because there is a sudden transition from the top of the dress to the bottom at the waistline. Ballgowns are remniscent of the old south in the 1800's but are also timely in the 21st century. The style is both dramatic and enduring. The best ballgown quinceanera line by far is Mori Lee Vizcaya. Vizcaya dresses are both well-fitted and stylish and come in an amazing array of colors. Check in often for the latest styles in the Vizcaya collection.
Quinceanera is a major milestone on the path to becoming a woman, primarily in Latin America. Quince for short, or also known as Fiesta de Quinceanera, is celebrated on a girl's 15th birthday and is often very large and formal. Just as a sweet sixteen celebration or debutane ball are coming out parties, so is the Quinceanera. A huge part of this celebration is the quince girl's dress or ballgown. Traditianally a poofy gown is worn in the colors white or light pink but, more recently, a more varied selection of colors is worn. Probably the best quinceanera dress line is Vizcaya by Mori Lee. Vizcaya dresses have a fantastic fit, are affordable as quinceanera dresses go, and are often chosen over any other designer.
The ceremony typically begins with a church service followed by a reception, much like a wedding. Damas are the girls who are in the "court" and hold roles similar to the bridesmaid. The "last doll" is a typical symbol of this day, representing the last days of childhood. Gifts are given, typically jewelry items which are often blessed by a priest.
