Posted on Thursday, February 12, 2015, by Patricia Reyna

“Sweet sixteen” only comes once, and therefore is a significant moment in every young adult’s life as they usher in adulthood. Sweet 16 party planning may be quite hectic considering that it is not like other parties. However, this post will detail some crucial elements of sweet 16 party planning, so that you are sure to not miss a beat.

1. Venue

The venue dictates what kind of a party you will have. The sweet sixteen decorations, food, look and cost - all depend on the venue. Book a venue that will be flexible enough to accommodate various themes as well as all your invited guests.

2. Themes and Color

Themes and colors can either make or break your sweet sixteen party. Make sure the colors you choose will fit well into your theme. Make sure the colors are festive and compliment each other. You can opt to choose pink and black or pink and green as well as brown and blue or red and black.

Lights are also a key partner to sweet 16 party planning. They can turn your party from boring and dull into an electrifying party. Your event planner can help you make a choice of lighting that will match well with the colors. Have some custom slideshows, as well as lights that project your name on the walls and roofs. Sound activated lights will make your party lively and superb.

3. Right Entertainment

Entertainment is the back bone of the party. You can make your party rock by getting a great sweet sixteen DJ or band. A good DJ will have all the latest hit songs as well as the charisma to keep your partying friends entertained till dawn.

4. The Cake

What is a party without a cake? While you could pick a cake from your local grocery store, a custom-made cake from a bakery will marry with the theme and color of the party.

5. Photography

Do you want to keep your sweet sixteen memories? Then photography should be on your to-do list. Free yourself up to make rather than capture memories by hiring a photographer to take the photos for you.

Today, most of the teens are swiping trendy smartphones that can as well be up to the task. Consider using your smartphone to take the photography as well as take video of the important activities in the party.

6. Grand Entrance

How do you want to enter the party? Do you want your favorite song to be playing? Try out a VIP grand entry complete with red carpet and paparazzi. You will need some jewelry to complement the occasion and look like a real celebrity.

7. After Party

What's next after party? You can opt for hotel rooms. Or rather, have a sleepover at your house complete with more soft drinks, foods and movies.

You will also need a solid plan outlined and followed to the letter. Visit with an event consultant and make the plan together. Remember to account for everything in the plan. Review the plan a week or two before the party date to ensure everything is in place for you to enjoy your perfect day.
