I didn't know there was a church service involved in this celebration!

When I was in high school my best friend was from Ecuador, and she had a Quinceanera. I was one of the "attendants" and since I didn't speak much Spanish at the time, was generally clueless about the whole thing! There were only 2 of us who were not Spanish speakers. There was no church service. We had dancing lessons for weeks to get ready, they hired a makeup artist, and we wore these outrageous dresses. (My DD loves it for dress-up now). I wish I had been able to understand more of what went on.
