Sweet 16: Tips for a Successful Party
Your daughter isn’t a little girl anymore: If her 16th birthday is coming up, then she’s well on her way toward becoming an adult. A Sweet 16 celebration is one way to commemorate this very special occasion. Since the event is not exactly a child’s birthday party and not exactly a party honoring an adult, there are some special considerations to keep in mind during your planning. All of these suggestions would work well for a Quinceañera, a coming-of-age party for a 15-year-old.

The Guest List

Location, Location, Location

Depending on the time of year that your daughter was born, her Sweet 16 party might be competing with weddings when it comes to choosing a locale to hold the big event. Particularly during the summer and around the holiday season, book well in advance. You can also have her party at a favorite restaurant or even at home, if you have enough space.

Teen-Friendly Invitations

Five years ago, your daughter may have appreciated invitations featuring a favorite character or theme. Since this party will be one celebrating her maturity, though, it’s a time for invites with a more grown-up appeal. Consider bringing all of the party details to a printer, or print your own with a traditional or fun font on pretty (but not juvenile) cardstock. Such an occasion is worthy of mailing invitations, if possible. RSVP cards add a nice touch.

Music and Entertainment

Your daughter will want a mix of popular music and entertainment for her Sweet 16. It’s important to find a DJ that will listen to her; not all teens are the same, and tired, overdone playlists are not appropriate for a teenager’s party. Choose someone that is able to sit down with her and determine her likes and dislikes. Consider a baby photo montage (if she doesn’t object), light shows and maybe showings of old home videos. This is a time to reflect on how much she’s grown!

Food

Happy Sweet 16 to your daughter! Congratulations on a job well done in raising a little girl into a young lady. Make her special day everything she wants it to be by giving her a good mix of party elements that will appeal to her youth as well as welcome her to adulthood.

Wedding Entertainment is a huge factor to consider in the wedding planning process and should be given due consideration sooner rather than later! Because admit it - more often than not, your guests will most likely not be able to recall the theme of your wedding cake or your beautiful centerpieces, but they will remember gettin' down and having a ball with all the new friends they've made. Also, you’ll never forget seeing all of the most important people in your world dancing together as if they've known each other forever.
