Being a 16-year-old is one of the best and most exciting years of a teenage girl's life. You don't have the responsibilities of an adult yet, but will no longer be treated like a child.
And although you are probably already forming yourself into the person you want to be, you are still allowed to just lay back and enjoy your youth. So, it only makes sense to have a grand party to celebrate your life. And the best way to do so is with a sweet 16 party bus.
Not sure where to start with the preparations? That's not a problem! In this blog, we're going to give you some tips on how to turn your 16th birthday party into a day you won't forget.
Are you going for the dreamy princess-themed party? Rockstar theme? How about a "girl boss" theme?
Having a theme will make the rest of the birthday party planning easier. So choose whatever it is that you want to represent you to make this special occasion more memorable.
This might not be the most thrilling part of a Sweet Sixteen party, but it's necessary. A budget will not only serve as a guide on how much you can spend on expenses, but it'll also help ensure that the event is a success. So discuss this part well with your parents.
Picking the right location is having more than just enough space for your guests. You also have to consider things like the ambiance, services and amenities, and sometimes, even the weather on the day of.
If you're not planning to have one specific venue and prefer to just travel on the party bus, then that's great too. You could go to more places instead, which sounds like a great way to celebrate your birthday.
Based on your budget, you can invite everyone you possibly know or only those who have actually made an impact in your life. But the important thing is, you decide who you want to be at your party early on.
Keep in mind that not everyone on your guest list will be able to attend your birthday party (and that's okay!) That's why it's also important to send out your invitation early and give your guests a deadline to respond. This way, they will have enough time to prepare and you also have time to adjust your plans if there are any changes.
An additional note: send the itinerary along with the invitation letter. This is to let your guests know where you're heading, the pick-up and drop-off times, and to let them know when the party's over.
Usually, one of the things that you need to consider when it comes to choosing a location is distance and accessibility for you and your guests. But thankfully, that's not a problem with a party bus.
Nonetheless, there are factors you need to take into account when choosing a party bus. First off, the cost. The cost of a party bus depends on things like the size of the vehicle, the length of the ride, and the number of stops.
Next is the customer reviews. A reputable party bus service will have their previous clients praising them about it.
And of course, there is the party bus itself. Before booking the vehicle, make sure you and your parents check them out in person first. See if the party bus is clean and if the amenities and features included are working.
Another thing to remember is to book your party bus earlier. This is to ensure that the buses you might want are available on the day of your birthday party. Additionally, you might be able to save on the cost if you avoid booking during peak seasons.
Make your sweet sixteen birthday party Instagram-worthy with decorations.
You can make your party glamourous, magical, and trendy depending on your chosen theme. It doesn't matter whether you hire a professional or you do the decorations yourself. What matters is they are all to your taste. So get balloons, banners, lights, and any other decorations you can think of. You can also create a photo booth corner added with quirky and entertaining props.
With the party bus, you don't have to worry too much about the decorations. A good party bus will have color-changing lights that you can change to suit your theme.
And when we say loaded, we mean food and drinks of course.
Hungry guests are not a good sign of a successful birthday party. So make sure that there's enough food and beverages for everyone.
Since it'll be on a party bus, it'll probably be easier to have easy-to-carry or bite-sized food choices. With this, you won't have to worry about cutleries and it'll also help avoid a mess.
A birthday party isn't a party with no music.
If you're planning to hire a DJ or a band, make sure that they are reputable and have the ability to make you and your guests have fun. If not, then the party bus can handle that for you too.
One of the features of a good party bus service is the sound system. At L3 Limo, all our party buses are equipped with heart-thumping sound systems, as well as flat-screen TVs, and iPod and Bluetooth connections. So you can create a playlist of your favorite party music and have them play at your birthday party.
The Tampa Bay Area has a lot of fun activities for 16-year-olds to enjoy. There are beaches, adventure parks, and trendy escape room centers.
On the party bus, you can have a karaoke contest or a sing-off. This will help break the ice among your peers. It can easily make everyone sing or dance along.
You might want to hire a professional to take photos and videos. This way, you can just focus on having fun knowing that this special occasion is being recorded.
However, make sure that you check their portfolio first. Because hiring someone incompetent might result in you losing records of moments you never get back again.
The most important part of your birthday party is to have fun. You and your family worked so hard to turn this event into a success. So enjoy it as much as you can.
Celebrating your Sweet Sixteen birthday party only happens once. Hiring a party bus will help turn this special event into a great experience you won't forget.
