For many girls, having a sweet sixteen party in Lynchburg is second only to their plans for a future wedding. Whether you are planning a sweet 16 party, or a Quinceanera, here is a guide that will allow you to make it a day to remember.
Deciding on a date and time for the Sweet 16 birthday party: Depending on when the actual birthday is, scheduling a date and time for the party can be a challenge. Consider holidays that may keep friends and family away. Find out if anyone else is planning an event during that time and take it into consideration. You can choose between the weekend before, and the weekend after the actual birthday, any day of the weekend from Friday to Sunday, and between an afternoon or evening event.
Deciding on a venue for the Sweet 16 birthday party: This party is a large event in a girl’s life, but you need to be budget-minded, too. You should try to be creative when it comes to picking a location for the sweet sixteen party. Besides the usual party hall, which you can get for a bargain if you can be flexible with the time and date, you can choose many other places. Consider using your home and yard (rent a tent), a church banquet hall, a local park, community center, or restaurant. We suggest checking with some of the local wedding venues and hotels, especially if you book on non-Saturdays… you may find their rates are discounted and the space is designed for special events.

Who and how many people to invite: Some birthday girls want a big party, some want a small. Take into account your budget and the girl’s personality. If she is normally shy, do not invite everyone she knows and the entire family. If she is outgoing, you need to invite more than a few close relatives and her best girlfriends. Try to think of good sweet sixteen party favors that are appropriate to give to the guests.
Sweet 16 Invitations: Once you know when, where, and how many to invite, you need to purchase or make invitations. Making the invitations will save a lot of money, and unless it is a surprise party, it is something the birthday girl should do. You don’t have to be an artist to make quality invitations, just do something that suits the birthday girl’s personality. It can be as simple as a cheerleading pom-pom with a note on it, or as intricate as an invitation with calligraphy and cut-outs. Make sure you request RSVP’s as soon as possible in the sweet sixteen party invitations.
