A Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a religious ceremony that signifies an important milestone for the daughter or son of Jewish parents. For this new stage of your child’s moral, intellectual, and physical development, what better way to celebrate than with a grand party that gathers your beloved family and friends for an unforgettable experience?
This monumental event will be remembered and cherished for years to come, so be sure to pay close attention to all the details to make sure your child has the time of their life! By following a simple checklist, not only will you gain brownie points as parents, but you’ll earn the title of most revered party planners around — obviously.
Decide on a Budget
Have a budget in mind before you begin planning the Bar/Bat Mitzvah. The last thing you want is to start the booking process, only to realize you’re spending way more than you can afford. Once you have a budget in mind, you’ll have a better idea of where to allocate your money.
Lock Down the Perfect Venue
Of course, your decor will speak for itself, but the venue will set the tone for the event. It’s important to book the venue well in advance, and in a location that is convenient for both locals and out-of-town guests. As you know, there’s going to be plenty of dancing, so be sure to pick a location that has a spacious dance floor.
If your venue doesn’t offer catering as part of an event package, be sure to hire the right kosher caterer that provides enough options to satisfy all your guests. If the venue does provide catering services, be sure to go for a tasting. The food is something people always remember at parties — and if it’s bad, you know you won’t hear the end of it.

Book the Photographer & Videographer
One way to ensure your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah is remembered forever is to hire a professional photographer and videographer. Getting the night’s most cherished moments captured will be appreciated for years to come, especially when your little ones are all grown up with a family of their own.
Pick a Theme
It is understandable if you want to stick with a traditional Mitzvah; however, it has become more common to add a theme that is fun and meaningful. Whichever you choose, just be sure to come to a decision ahead of time.
If you have a theme, choose invitations that represent it; otherwise, simplicity is always beautiful. Make sure to send out invitations well in advance to ensure your guests have ample time to make any necessary arrangements for their arrival. Sending the invites ahead of time will also ensure a great turnout!
Plan for the Days around the Party
It’s safe to say you’ll be planning for the days around the Bar/Bat Mitzvah, and not just that one day. You’ll need to account for your out of town guests that will be attending Shabbat dinner, as well as brunch the morning after the party. Save yourself the stress and hire caterers so you can stay focused on the main event.
All of these details are vital for throwing a successful Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Be creative with the details and have fun planning! Once you’re ready to hire Bar/Bat Mitzvah DJs in Philadelphia and the surrounding region, give Pulse Entertainment a call!
