1. Set a Budget
For some families, this can be the most challenging aspect of the whole process, especially if your daughter’s expectations tend to be unrealistic. From the very start of your party planning, make sure that you set a total budget — and stick to it. Make a tally of all the major expenses you’ll have, such as the venue, food, and necessary party decorations. Once your budget is in place, figuring out exactly what you’ll be including in your party will be a whole lot easier.
2. Choose a Theme
Although it may seem cheesy at first, themes are extremely common for Sweet 16s — and your daughter’s choice of party theme can be tailored to her age and tastes. The array of potential party themes out there is extremely diverse, ranging from Mardi Gras and masquerade themes to rock star and even Halloween themes.
If you’re short on ideas, ask your daughter about her interests. Anything from her favorite books and movies to her personal hobbies can serve as inspiration for incredible party ideas!
3. Create a Guest List
For a significant event such as a Sweet 16, the proper etiquette is to send out the invitations a few weeks in advance to give you enough time to prepare and save the date. Also, begin making a list of exactly who you would like to invite, keeping in mind factors such as your budget, the size of your venue, and the size of your daughter’s social circle.
