Whats up bees!! As I look through the dress boards, i find pages and pages of brides looking for sweetheart necklines, basque waists, blingy bodices and very full skirts. However, I have yet to find a board that looks at Quinceanera dresses as a viable option. To me, the biggest difference between traditional wedding ballgowns and quinceanera ballgowns is price; if you marketed a white quinceanera gown as a wedding gown it would most likely quadruple the price. That being said, some of the more subtle differences are quality, materials, and design of dress (design being self explanatory, some quince dress In My Humble Opinion are not of as nice quality, craftsmansip or materialwise as wedding gowns). I’ve posted a few pictures of quinceanera desses to demonstrate my point :).

Quinceanera dresses are made for young women, 15 yrs old. Sometimes clothes made for 15 yrs old are sized differently then clothes made for older women, as our curves are completely different. I guess I wouldn’t totally rule out the idea, I would just need to be careful when considering these dresses. 🙂

No, because quinceanera dresses are too flashy for my taste. If you’re wanting big ballgowns with bling, go for it! Who cares what its marketed as.

I wouldn’t because I don’t consider those differences to be subtle at all. Those are the most important things to me.

I voted yes but I’m not a fan of the big puffed out skirt factor like the ones shown. But truthfully, who cares what it’s marketed as. If I was having a more casual wedding you’d bet your bottom dollar I’d be going to every store in the mall looking for a dress as opposed to just a bridal store. So I don’t see what the difference is in wearing a quinceanera dress instead of a “wedding” gown.
The pink one is kind of pretty though, the skirt just needs to be tamed down a bit, lol.

Definitely, if it’s the style you like, why not?? It doesn’t have to be sold as a “wedding dress” to be a wedding dress!

The dresses are lovely. If they came in white/cream and if someone were looking for a princess/ballgown type dress they would be a perfect option IMO.

If it was a dress I liked, then yes. I don’t want a white dress and am considering buying a nice bridesmaid’s dress or a prom/formal dress rather than a ‘wedding’ dress.

Quinceanera- the celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday in Latin America. This birthday is celebrated differently from any other birthday, as it marks the transition from childhood to womanhood.
