ORGANIZATION IS KEY!
Create a web page for your
Quinceañera and use it to keep
your court members informed,
providing details on where they
need to go to get fitted for a tux or
how much their court member
attire will cost. Post a detailed
practice schedule and have a link
with directions to your rehearsal
venue. Poor planning can make it
hard for your court members to
participate, so stay organized.
MAKE A PACKING LIST!
Create a packing list for your
court members so they can pack
the night before. A tip to making
a list is to start from head to toe.
From earrings to shoes, making a
list will save a few headaches the
day of your big event! Fashion
emergencies are no fun, especially
on such an important day! ✿
