Your quince, or quinceañera, will come only once in your lifetime.
It is not like a wedding that can be performed, celebrated, broken and repeated several times. The quince is your right of passage as you become a woman.
This fifteenth birthday celebration marks the time in a girl’s life when she puts away the toys of youth and accepts responsibility for becoming a woman. Her quince is something her parents have been anticipating and saving for, for the quince is their daughter’s entrance into to social world.
