Well, when the dutch RF is ready for P.Amalia to undertake an official event and they choose an invitation for a "ribbon cutting" or "boat christening" or whatever, i'm sure the organizers of the event will happily move it to a more convenient day of the week

But i don't expect it to happen before she is 18... however if they prove me wrong i'll be the first to admit it

Wikipedia tells you more Central American customs not Argentinean.
In Argentina it is a big deal the 15 Birthday party and we do not really call Quincianera as Wikipedia said, "Fiesta de 15 " "15 Party". It is a hole big event like a wedding, the girls dress in White , invite all her friends from school and family , everybody is in gala dresses , you have the first dance waltz with your father and the cake has ribbons, the one who get the ring in the ribbon it will be the first one to marry , the only girls that can pull the ribbon from the cake is all single girls, from 15 to 50 if you are single!
Also it is always shows in between the great food, dancing, souvenirs, even you get a lot of Cotillion for some dances, it is a lot of fun, start late at 9 pm and goes to 6 am, with a lot of food, music and drinks!

In my days it was strictly white dresses but today I think the girls choose other colours, Also it all depends in the financially of the family and what the girls want , my nice choose a trip to Disneyland, in my case, my father was dead and my mother could not afford a party like that, though my godfather (my father's father) always told me he would pay for the party he didn't do it , he did a lunch at his house , and my mother bought the cake and he gave me a new pair of skates which I need it , thought I wanted really the big party!. In the case of Amalia that money is not a problem she could have a party in Argentina with her Argentinean family. I think when you do not live close to your family it is a good excuse and opportunity to get all the family together. As I couldn't travel for my daughter's 15 , instead we did her 16 Birthday party in Argentina together with Her Konfirmation in the Danish Church, as the Church service was in the morning we had a lunch party in the Danish Embassy with all the family. It is important to get the kids together with cousins and family , a great excuse so I hope Maxima does one for each of her girls in Argentina.

Thanks, Ashelen.

A big day indeed!
And I agree, it good occasion for the Argentinian branch of the family to gather.

I imagine that in significance this can be compared to what prom night is for American teenage girls?

No The Prom is with school friends and parents only spend money in the dress.
When you live in other country I think it is important to find events to get together and it is up o the adults that cousins get alone , I am sure they have cousins in Argentina and it will be a great excuse to celebrate.
In my case my daughter wanted her only grandparent alive , my mother 93 in her Konfirmation, so It was extra special for her, and us adults we built memories for our kids, so I can Imagine how important would be for Maxima to have her girls celebrating their Birthday in Argentina.
I wanted to download some photos but for some reason erased my writing so I will try in other porst

No, the best American comparison would be a Sweet 16 party which used to be a bigger deal than it seems to be nowadays. Turning 16 is still something special for a lot of American girls but it's not anywhere on the level of a quinceanera/15th birthday celebration like you have in many Latin American cultures.

The Quinceanera business is booming here in the States, since we have lots of immigrants from Mexico and Central America. There are stores in many towns that sell dresses ($600-$1000) and party planners that specialize in these events.

Thanks Ashelen & Sunnystar.

Curiosity makes me wanna ask: How about the boys?
Anything equivalent to quinceanera or sweet 16?

To me it looks a bit like it originated as a combination of coming of age party and our daughter is now ready to marry party.

Nothing for boys! and yes I guess it is like you said our daughter is ready to marry, I know that in Argentina before I think may be in the 40s it was not a customs girls going to high school, they have to learn to cook and embroidery. I know a great Aunt who was actually Danish it was the first woman in Argentina to finish University, I think it was an scandal in those days
I wonder if Maxima's mother did High School, by her age I would asume no, Unless she was from a very rich family.
Sorry I still can not post the photos I am not sure why
