A bar mitzvah is a wonderful celebration where friends and family come together to watch a boy become a man in the Jewish culture. Nevertheless, planning a bar mitzvah can be a challenge. Whether you have planned parties in the past or this is your first, we have created a typical guide, so no detail slips through the cracks. Remember, no party is complete without our chauffeur service in Boca Raton. Make the celebration elegant and unforgettable by contacting M&M Limo and Airport Service.
Pick A Date
If the bar mitzvah is fast approaching, this means you have already picked a date two or three years ago with your synagogue.
Book A Venue
After you have created your guest list, it’s time to book a venue. Before you book the venue, there are a few important considerations to make. First, decide if you are going to have the bar mitzvah at the synagogue or another location. The guests will probably be mixed age groups, so pick a venue that can cater to both children, teenagers, and adults.
Choose what time of day you want the celebration to start: afternoon or evening? Evening bookings tend to get reserved much faster, especially during popular months. It’s good to get multiple quotes and read a lot of reviews before making your final decision.
No matter what location you choose, you can always count on our transportation service in Boca Raton to get you there safely and on time.
Send Out Invitations
Give your guests plenty of notice. Some people send out invitations a year in advance. If you have picked a theme or mood for the party, the invitation is a great way to give your guests a taste of what to expect.
Food And Beverages
You are throwing a party for a minor, therefore most of the guests will likely be minors, too. With this in mind, consider if you will have two separate menus: one for the kids and one for the adults. You should also determine if you are going to be serving adult beverages for the older guests and whether to have a cocktail hour. When throwing a party for mixed ages, these are the small but significant details that should be considered.
Most of the guests will be Jewish, so will your menu have kosher and non-kosher options or strictly kosher options? When you hire a caterer, they can help plan these important details with you.
The most important thing when choosing entertainment is to consider all age groups. As a result, it’s a good idea to have a variety of entertainers. Common entertainment at bar mitzvahs include:
- Trivia for kids (and adults)
- Live music that incorporates multiple genres
- Emcee (keeps the party lively)
There is no question that you want the celebration captured by an experienced photographer. It’s recommended that you choose a photographer who has experience with bar/bat mitzvahs. If you’re going to have the party at the synagogue, just make sure to ask about their policy for taking pictures.
Arrange for the guests to be transported from the synagogue to the party venue and then back to the synagogue. At M&M Limo & Airport Service, we have a fleet of luxury sedans, vans, limousines, and SUVs for your choosing. You are sure to find one or more vehicles to accommodate your guests.
Rehearsing for a bar mitzvah is common, especially if you are planning to do a candle lighting ceremony. If you and your spouse plan to give a speech, this should also be rehearsed. This is another detail of the party that needs to be run by the synagogue beforehand.
As with every party, a bar mitzvah takes lots of planning to ensure everything is perfect. With the right team by your side (i.e., caterers, entertainers, photographers, etc.), you will create a celebration your son will never forget.
