The Quinceañera is a traditional celebration of life and gratitude to God on the occasion of the 15 birthday of a young Hispanic girl. This ritual gives emphasis to the passage from girl to a woman.In Argentina, it is not nearly as connected; they seldom start at the church, and it is more about the party than the deity. Meaning their tradition focuses more on the party side of the celebration.
Dress-The dress is traditionally a ball gown. It is usually a white dress (symbolizing purity) or in the Fiesta Rosa of El Salvador, the dresses are pink (to symbolize youth).
Tiara-This symbolizes a princess before God and replaces the headpiece worn at the mass.
Scepter-This is placed in her hand to symbolize her taking on more adult roles in the family and society.

The Tiara: The most integral of quinceanera gifts, it denotes that the quinceanera celebrant is a princess before God, and the triumph of overcoming childhood. It symbolizes that the celebrant is able to face adult challenges in her life. The tiara is presented with the Scepter at the Crowning Ceremony.

At the party, there will be a replica of the statue in Salta City that represents Jesus Christ to honor and represent the Roman catholic population in Argentina (90%).
Songs used for the quinceanera are usually traditional and something the father and the daughter can easily waltz too. They also can include a couple songs of the daughter's preference.
