For teens, planning a sweet sixteen party is equally as important as planning their wedding. Below are tips that you should follow.
1. ) Decide on a Time and Date
Birthdays fall on similar dates sometimes, which is one of the most important aspects when planning. Some fall on the same date, so you need to pick the right date to avoid conflicting schedules. Choose any day through Friday evening or Sunday afternoon. Try to steer clear of special events like holidays which may keep family and friends away. The very best advice is to opt for the weekend after or the weekend before which send invitations out much beforehand. Allow guests time to plan by sending out invites in advance.
2. ) Location
Even though you are planning a big life event, you need to keep your budget in mind. Avoid picking an area which is common for holding parties. Pick a warehouse and then decorate it or plan a tent event in your garden. You can negotiate prices based on the date you pick and the time. Try to pick out a place which won’t discourage guests.
3. ) Guest List
Fundamentally your celebration will cost more if you invite more people. This is directly associated with the place and meal size. Please bear in mind your budget and your target for the party. By asking the people you know will get along, the more fun the event will be. If you’re more outgoing, then expand the list to people you know would add to the atmosphere of the event (even more friends than family). If you are shyer, then encourage more family than friends. Mixing both family and friends will make the party very enjoyable. You may even throw two distinct parties (one for household and one for friends) if your budget allows it.
4. ) Custom Sweet 16 Invitations
Now that you understand how many individuals you are going to invite, now is the time to tell them and send them requests. 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 according to the invites.
5. ) Theme for the party
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 an expression of your personality and creativity. Themes could be lavish or quiet. Themes include costumes, colour, time frame or location. Where colours change, alter, accent lighting options are offered by some companies.
