A Mitzvah is a large milestone in a child’s life and it deserves to be celebrated. This day will be remembered by all, so keep these few things in mind when planning your Bar, Bat, or B’nai Mitzvahs!
Choose a theme to make planning easier
It’s not necessary for any Mitzvah to have a theme, but it definitely makes it more fun! It will give your child more of an opportunity to help in planning and make their special day their own. Plus, this will solidify your decorations, invitations, centerpieces and other important details.
Decide on reception entertainment
There are a lot of entertainment options to choose from when planning your child’s Mitzvah, from live bands and DJs, to magicians and caricaturists. It’s important to entertain your guests, but also keep the main focus on your child. Try to find a balance that will work for you, your guests, and your budget.
Send Your Invitations
As soon as you’ve chosen your date, send out your invitations! You’ll need to give your guests enough time to plan for the Mitzvah and that will include all of the event details they’ll need to attend. This will be your guests’ first impression of the party and the theme you chose.
Arrange for a special pre-shoot
More families are taking advantage of a Mitzvah pre-shoot. This special photo shoot will celebrate your child’s youthful exuberance and flourishing maturity. You can showcase everything about them that makes them special like their hobbies, interests and passions. Your child’s personality will shine through this photo shoot and with the special day right around the corner, these images are perfect for Mitzvah décor, guest books or large scale photo panels!
Document the big event
It’s important to find the right team of professional photographers that will capture your child’s Jewish passage into “adulthood” as well as all of the other special moments that will transpire. An expert will ensure that every emotion and experience will be documented from the perspective of everyone present. It will also guarantee you peace of mind to focus on family and friends that have all gathered to celebrate your child. Also, remember to check with your synagogue about their camera policy before the big day!
