One thing that The Mitzvah and Sweet 16 Events have in common is lighting candles, because it is in fact the most important part of the party. However, your venue depicts the way your event will flow, whereas some of your “usual” formalities may be limited or actually non-existant due to your preference. (For instance: Having your affair at a sports or game zone, like The Zone, or Encore Event Center at Iplay America, will empower much of your guests’ time to that atmosphere). You must imagine what you as the Guest of Honor will want to spend the most time doing, whether it be dedicated to more dancing or games, all of which will be discussed with your Event Host. Below are some tips of importance that every Guest of Honor should keep in mind.
Indicating which songs you would like to hear for the Host/Hostess Dance, Sweet 16 and Friend Dance (if appropriate), and Sweet 16 and Parent Dance. Your MC will be happy to give you suggestions for these dances. On the back of the Client Information Sheet, you may indicate your musical requests and exclusions.
Your Emcee will discuss an assortment of different games, providing you with images and video footage/demonstrations on how the games work with you and your guests.
The best part of the affair!
If appropriate, indicate if there are any special announcements about any guests that youʼd like the MC to make: birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, marriages, etc.
