Thirty Years Later, This Woman Finally Celebrated The Quinceañera Of Her Dreams

There’s several reasons why 15 year olds never have a quinceañera. They might not be into the whole big dress and chambelan thing, they might not have the money for a huge party, or the timing is not right. But just because you didn’t have a quinceañera at 15 doesn’t mean you can’t have a quinceañera ever again.

Lorena Del Carmen Navarro celebrated her 45th birthday with a huge quinceañera for herself.

“She has been dreaming about a quince since she was a young girl, but never got the chance to have one simply because she knew her parents couldn’t afford one,” her son Saúl Ramírez said. “She wanted to have one when she turned thirty but due to being in bed-rest while being pregnant with her second child, she couldn’t. Eventually, about three years ago, she decided to have the party at age 45.”

Her quinceañera was truly spectacular and very unique to how she wanted to celebrate.

Her party include a special dance with her husband to her favorite song, “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran. Most quinceañera traditions includes parents giving their daughter her “ultima muñeca” — the last doll which signifies her transformation from child to adult. But Saúl said that instead of a doll she received her first walker! And rather than cake, guests were given Lorena’s favorite dessert, donuts from Krispy Kreme.

She also had five chambelans instead of one.

“She had a main chambelan which was my dad, her husband and four others as well as their wives — her two sisters, best friend, and cousin — as the damas. So she had a full honor court,” Saúl said.

Lorena’s quince wasn’t just a party, however. She also had a Catholic quince mass that included padrinos and madrinas.

Her son Saúl also serenaded her with an original song he wrote just for her.

Something tells us we’re going to see a lot more women celebrate their quince at any age, thanks to Lorena.
