Quinceanera invitations follow several different formats. An example of formal invitation written from the young woman's perspective is the following: "I, (young woman's name), invite you and your family to join me and my parents,(mother and father's names) at a party in celebration of my fifteenth birthday," followed by the date, time and location.
Some families choose to include a longer narrative emphasizing the transition into womanhood in their quinceanera invitations. For example, an invitation written from the parents' perspective might talk about how quickly time has gone by since their daughter was born and how proud they are of how beautiful and accomplished she has become. One example is the following: "It seems like yesterday that our daughter was born, but fifteen years have passed since then.(Daughter's name) is now a beautiful young lady. Please join us in celebrating her fifteenth birthday," followed by the date, time and location.
Families may also choose to word the invitation in the form of a verse, such as this poem from Quinceanera-Boutique.com, "Once upon a time, a little girl had a dream. To have an enchanted party when she turns fifteen! To have a guest like you would be a delight. So please come join us for a magical night!"
