Becoming a bar or bat mitzvah is an important milestone for young Jewish people. But planning the big celebration is a considerable undertaking for their parents! Fortunately, you can plan a fun bar or bat mitzvah in Philadelphia and its surrounding areas with these tips and tricks.

Choose a theme for your bar/bat mitzvah. Think about what your child’s bar or bat mitzvah means to you and what your child’s interests are. This process can help influence the theme of your big day. From the decor to the type of entertainment you want to have down to the food you’ll serve; a theme can be extremely helpful when planning a major event like a bar or bat mitzvah.

Book your bar/bat mitzvah venue. Typically bar and bat mitzvahs are held in country clubs, hotels, or wedding venues. Because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, people have started to get creative to host events safely. When booking a location, consider the outdoor venues in your area. You can also connect with the more traditional venues and see if they’re offering covered outdoor options. The number of people and time of year your bar or bat mitzvah takes place will greatly influence your venue choice.

Decide on the vendors who will bring your bar/bat mitzvah to life. The vendors you hire are responsible for the food, drinks, and fun at a bar or bat mitzvah. Food and drink are of paramount importance, of course. But the entertainment you have at a bar or bat mitzvah is just as important! Whether you’re looking for a DJ or a live band, or a cool combination of the two, trust the Philadelphia bar and bat mitzvah MCs at EBE to combine music, video, lighting, and dance entertainment.

Hire a photographer that specializes in bar and bat mitzvahs. Your big day isn’t going to last forever, but that’s where photo and videographers come in. EBE can provide a talented Videographer as well. To choose a great photographer, ask friends and family who have held bar or bat mitzvahs before for recommendations. Before making a final decision, make sure you’ve seen their previous work and express clearly what kind of shots you want to be taken on the big day to make sure everyone is on the same page.
