Bar/Bat Mitzvah Planning Tips

Bar and Bat Mitzvah’s are a major moment in any child’s life as they become formally recognized as an adult. Planning out this big celebration is a daunting task and will leave many parents’ heads spinning for weeks. To help you plan the extravagant party without all the headache, our event planners at Pulse Entertainment have laid out key Bar and Bat Mitzvah planning tips.

Budget: The first thing that you need to do is to determine the budget for the party. Knowing how much you can spend on each aspect will help you establish reasonable expectations, as well as set a tone for the entire event. Having a stern budget in mind will prevent you from going overboard on one element of the party and having to skimp on others.


Catering: Unless you are willing to cook for over 100 people, you are going to need someone else to supply the food. With so many people in attendance, check the caterer’s track record to ensure your guests will have the top quality food. You do not want to spoil the big night with dreadful cuisine and poor service.

Theme: It is your child’s special night, help make it memorable and unique with an interesting theme. Some of the popular trends are movies, sports, and travel. Once you have an idea, determine how you are going to incorporate it throughout the party around such things like decorations, invitations, food, and party favors.

Venue: You need to find a place that is large enough to accommodate the party and has all of the necessary amenities like a dance floor and ample parking. When doing a walkthrough, try to envision the area covered in decorations to see if it will work with the theme. It is also important to find a place that is convenient for local family members and those from out of state, preferably close to a hotel.

Memories: With the importance of the occasion you are sure to want to document the ceremony and fun. Using our in-house studio, Serendipity Studios, we can match you up with an amazing photographer and videographer to capture your event.

Entertainment: Keeping your guests entertained will make or break the event. Since there will be a mix of adults and teenagers, find DJ entertainment in Philadelphia that can appeal to all age groups. At Pulse Entertainment, we can provide everything from light shows to party games to ensure no guest is left out from the fun.
