Quinceanera Theme Ideas from Heart of Haute - Old Hollywood and Rockabilly

When starting to plan your quinceanera (or helping your sister or cousin or niece or daughter), one of the best places to start is with picking at theme. Quince theme ideas are everywhere, and they are as unique as the girls celebrating. From girly to glamorous, elaborate and sweet to sleek and simple, your unique quinceanera theme should reflect you. Choose a theme that represents something your love or admire – from your past or future dreams.

Many quinceaneras celebrate vintage themes – these themes embrace classic beauty and timeless elegance. Old Hollywood is a popular theme – with a red carpet entrance and a black and white photo booth, this idea has endless possibilities for a formal night you will never forget. Bold reds, purples, and metallics like silver and gold help to create this retro look that uses elements from the 1920s through 1960s.

Another vintage idea - with a more rock and roll atmosphere - is a rockabilly or 1950s theme quinceanera. Think vinyl records for place settings, classic cars for photo props, cherries, anchors, polka dots, and lots of black and white. This quince theme offers outrageous amounts of fun options for quinceanera music. Choosing a theme first can help you narrow down the endless possibilities when considering  dresses for your damas. At Heart of Haute, we have exclusive options for quinceanera dresses – hand made just for your amazing day!

 Old Hollywood Quince Theme Dresses: Your court of honor will be old Hollywood stars in our Marseilles and Milan dresses. Marilyn Monroe herself would love these styles – both have full skirts and matching belts for a perfect adjustable fit. Our Milan dress comes in numerous colors, fabrics and patterns. Another option for Old Hollywood quinceanera dresses is metallics - try our Sweetie Dress in gold stars for your court to shine like true vintage celebrities.  

Rockabilly Theme Dresses: For a rockabilly quinceanera theme, try our Diner, Betty Lou, Beverly or Sweetie Dresses. All of these retro dresses are available in multiple colors, and prints from gingham to anchors. The Sweetie and Beverly are both available in our Classic Cherry print. If polka dots are a park of your theme, try our Hilary Dress in Black Dot. We can also custom cut different styles in the same fabric for your damas. These retro looks are inspired by actual vintage patterns – perfect for creating an authentic 1950s look for your quinceanera. These dresses all feature full skirts that twirl beautifully – great movement for dancing.
