Vestidos de Quinceañera: Quinceañera Dresses

Posted on November 9th, 2011 by Mandy Webster

The Vestidos de Quinceañera (Quinceañera dresses) are one of the most important elements of the Quinceañera preparations. Throughout Quinceañera history, the young lady of the day has been, typically, swathed in layers of taffeta, chiffon, satin, and a myriad of other sumptuous dress fabrics, often over full hoop skirts.

The Quinceañera dress is often white, a representation of the young lady’s purity. A typical vestido de Quinceañera might even be confused for a traditional white wedding dress, with its formal accessories and delicate lace accoutrements. However, pale pink is another common color choice for the traditional Quinceañera gown.

The modern Quinceañera often opts for brighter colors as well, choosing shades of lemon, lime, or fuchsia rather than the muted tones of the traditional white or pale pink Quinceañera gown.

Quinceañera dresses may be simple, handmade dresses or custom-made designer gowns. And, while the extravagance of the gown may be dependent on the family’s budget, most do their best to send their Quinceañera out into the world in a style that is all her own.
