So recently, I just celebrated y sweet 16! Over here in America traditionally, a girl (or guy) will have a party essentially to celebrate her (or his) coming of age. Planing such an even can be fun as well as stressful, so I’d thought I’d share some tips that could be helpful for anyone else!
Let’s get started!
1: What kind of party?
Usually, when people think of sweet 16 birthday parties, they think of a beautiful ball gown with a sparkling tiara. Parties such as those are great and create memories that last a life time. However, if your not into the frills and glitter, don’t be discouraged! There are so many more options to choose from! One of the first steps is to decide what kind of party you would feel comfortable with. From there, looking for venues and places will be a lot easier, as you know exactly what your looking for.
2: Be Open to Suggestions!
You may have a vision in your head of the perfect party and have the finest details taken care of in your mind. That’s great, but be open to suggestion from others. Trust me they know how stressful it is! They’re here to make your dream come true but in order for that to happen, suggestions are vital!
3: Gotta Give a Little!
Truthfully…sometimes things don’t work out and that’s totally fine. That’s what life is all about right? Things work out in the end. If they don’t have those magenta roses with trimmed stems in the right shade that you wanted, don’t sweat it! See if there’s an alternative you’d be happy with if it was something you had your heart set on 😊.
4: Beauty Time!
You wanna look good on your big day right? Make sure you book hair and makeup appointments early so you won’t be left scrambling a few weeks before the big day. That way, you can rest easy and look forward to the fun! Same thing goes for picking out outfits. If your having a bigger party where a dress would be appropriate, don’t wait until the last minute. If your having a more casual party where jeans are all the rave, then don’t stall too long. Having enough time for these tasks makes it more enjoyable and fun for everyone!
All in all, planning a special party should be fun! At sometimes it may be stressful, but remember that it’s a special day for you. Don’t stress too much over the small stuff 🙂 just look forward to having a great time with family, friends, or both!
If your sweet 16 is coming up soon, then Happy birthday gorgeous! 😉
