The best part of having a quinceanera is having your closest family and friends celebrate it with you. Whit that said, it’s not necessary to invite people you don’t know or are not close with. It’s important that the people that matter the most to you are invited. But just as important is to make sure that people that you didn’t invite don’t sneak in uninvited.

Know that the number of guests, no matter how large or small it may be, does not determine the success of your celebration. After all, the people make the memories, not the number of guests.
Another key factor that will affect your guest list is your party budget. Ideally, most quinceaneras want to invite all their friends to their party. But for the most part, their budget simply don’t allow them to have a limitless guest list.
