For many teenagers, having a sweet sixteen party is like having a wedding. Here are important ideas that will help you make it more memorable.
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. Choose a day from Friday all the way through to Sunday afternoon. 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 with all the common locations that people use to plan a party but rather step out from the box. Choose a warehouse and decorate it or plan a tent event in your garden. You can negotiate prices based on the date you pick and the time. Also, try to choose a place which will not discourage guests from travelling.
3. ) Guest List
The more people you invite, the more money you are going to spend. This is associated with the place and meal dimensions. 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’re shy then invite your family members. It’s this mixture of friends and loved ones that you’ll need to select. You can even throw two different 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 out before the event date. Be certain that you have all details thought through before sending out the invitations. I recommend creating the invitations you; this is a more budget friendly idea and unless if it’s a surprise party, the guest of honour (birthday girl) ought to make the invitations herself. Tie your theme to your event.
5. ) Themes
When you are organizing a sweet sixteen party, coming up with a theme is of utmost importance. This will differentiate the ones that your buddies are throwing and your party. It’s a reflection of your personality and imagination. Themes could be quiet or lavish. Themes usually include colour, costume, time frame or location. Where colours change, alter, accent lighting options are offered by some companies.
