Turning 13 for every Jewish girl or boy is a milestone. Traditionally, this is when a girl or boy becomes responsible for their actions, and their father is no more punished for their sins. The event of tuning 13 becomes even more special because the kids can now participate in all the Jewish rituals and traditions once. The auspicious affair is celebrated in full swing with the coming of age ritual of Bar Mitzvah for Jewish boys and Bat Mitzvah for Jewish girls.
Parents and families often get super overwhelmed with all that needs to be done to make the party the talk of the town for decades to come.
So, we are here to give 5 simple ways to plan the big event strategically without losing one’s mind.
- Start Early
The first thing one needs to figure out is the date of the big event from the synagogue. We recommend doing this step at least 1-2 years prior
to the event.
Decide a budget that is enough for a Bar Mitzvah Melbourne but does not put a heavy strain on your bank balance. Everything one does form here on should be driven primarily by the budget they have set. Once the budget is set, it is time to create a rough guest list to estimate the number of people who will be attending the party.
- Hunt for the Venue
The venue is a key factor in arranging a successful Bar Mitzvah Melbourne. The first few things one should consider about the venue are its accessibility, available space, the quality of space, and the price tag for it. By quality, we mean amenities like a parking lot, quality restrooms, ventilation or air conditioning, etc. After that, comes the aesthetic appeal of the venue and if they have enough space and resources to bring your vision of the party to life. Most families want a spacious dance floor along with an area to set up the entertainment elements of the party as well as a smartly designed and organized dining area.
To make things easier for parents and families, we suggest looking for a venue, which offers a quality kosher catering service along with space. This will cut down on time spent on visiting so many different vendors and the hassle of various contacts and payments.
- Decide the Menu
This is what people will talk about for years to come. Parents should not only have a thorough discussion about the menu with the caterer but also have them arrange a tasting way before the final decision. One thing that must be kept in mind is to find a balanced menu, which will appeal to both matured and teenage taste buds. Some of the trending mitzvah foods are mini menus, which serve bite-sized dishes making it possible for the guest to have a little bit of everything without getting bloated. Interactive dessert bars are always hot. Personalization is also catching quite some limelight where food items that are the child’s favorite are presented in a modern gourmet fashion.
Once the menu is decided, parents need to think if they want it served in a buffet setting, food stations, or plated service. Keeping the venue in mind is going to benefit a great deal during this step.
The one thing that makes a bar or bat mitzvah a true party is the presence of an experienced electrifying DJ like Joel Kuperholz. They understand what is trending and what is traditional and churn out music that will make every shoulder bop and foot dance to its rhythm. It is essential that you collaborate with a DJ like Joel Kuperholz for such a sentimental ceremony. Traditional important rituals like the Hora Jewish dance are not possible without the right music and vibe, which anyone can exude better than Joel.
The entertainment is not just about booking a DJ in advance who will rock the party. One must add that much-needed extra bling to their party by opting for the party enhancement service offered by Joel. This DJ will bring down his entire crew to light up your party. The planner in him ensures that there is a superb light up and stage set up for the performance to give a true concert feeling to the party filled with teenagers, who are borderline crazy about the concert experience. Since the party is likely to have a majority of youngsters, that is why the games and giveaway organization by the party planner cum DJ will keep the guests completely thrilled and entertained. And for those shy adults, there are flashy dancers, who will take them to the floor for the best night of their lives.
Having said all this, one thing that is the most important is time management in this case. Parents should start early, so they have enough time to achieve perfection for their little one’s mitzvah.
