You are so lucky to be planning the perfect Sweet 15 fiesta! Planning a quince in 2018 is a dream come true… Nowadays you have so many options that surpass any fairy tale fantasy. From unimaginable dresses, dreamy photos, and event halls that make you feel like you are in a castle, to majestic limousines, and intricate cake masterpieces… we are in love. However, your dream party is not only over the top, it’s expensive, too!
One of the most important celebrations in our culture only happens because of a very important thing…the padrino tradition. Traditionally, the quinceanera and her parents will ask grandparents, primos, tios, tias and close friends to accept the honor of being the padrinos for this special occasion. By sponsoring essential items for a celebration, such as the band, cake, venue and more, padrinos help lessen the financial burden on the family. More significantly, padrinos create a sense of community by supporting and pitching in for the main cause.!
Our ancestors believed being asked to be a padrino was an honor and that the blessings the family receives on the special day will be passed on to their padrinos as well. This tradition has been handed down for generations… and we have some great news for you!
MiPadrino.com brings this tradition into 2018. No more handwritten lists of your party needs…just add everything to your list online, and share with your friends and family all across the globe.
