For teens, planning a sweet sixteen party is equally as important as planning their wedding. Here are important ideas that will help you make it more memorable.
1. ) Choose a Time and Date
Birthdays fall on similar dates sometimes, which is one of the most important aspects when planning. You need to avoid scheduling parties on the same day with other people planning the same party. Pick any day from Friday to Sunday afternoon which is convenient for most people. Try to avoid special occasions like holidays that might keep friends and family away. The very best advice is to opt for the weekend after or the weekend before which send invitations out much beforehand. The farther out you send invites, the more time for the guests to prepare.
2. ) Location
You will need to keep your budget in mind despite the fact that you are planning an event. Don’t stick to the usual spots that people are used to throwing parties. Choose a warehouse and then decorate it or plan a tent event. You may still negotiate prices depending on your sweet 16’s date and time. Also, try to pick out a place that will not discourage guests from travel to far.
3. ) Guest List
Basically, the greater your celebration will cost if you invite many people. This is directly associated with the place and meal size. Please keep in mind your budget and your targets. By asking the people you know will get along, the more fun the event will be. If you’re more outgoing, then extend the list to people you know would add fun to the atmosphere of the occasion (even more friends than family). If you’re shy then invite your family members. Mixing both family and friends will make the party very enjoyable. You can even throw two distinct parties (one for family and one for friends) if your budget allows it.
4. ) Custom Sweet 16 Invitations
Now that you understand how many individuals you plan on inviting, now is the time to send out the invites. These are great to mail before the event date. Be certain that you have the details before placing them on the 15, finalized. Create the messages yourself; this can be a more budget friendly thought and unless if it’s a surprise party, the guest of honour (birthday girl) ought to make the invitations herself. Tie your theme to the invitation.
5. ) Themes
When you are organizing a sweet sixteen party, coming up with a theme is of utmost importance. It will l differentiate the ones that your buddies are throwing and your celebration. It is a reflection of your personality and imagination. Themes could be quiet or lavish. Themes usually include colour, costume, time frame or location. Accent lighting choices are offered by many companies to change the colour of the walls.
