So you just received the Bar/Bat Mitzvah date of your first child. How exciting! After you call your husband and announce the date to the family you sit back and suddenly you are hit with: “Now what?!”
When you begin to plan your child’s Mitzvah I think one of the first things to do is look into
a DJ. Some of the more “popular” MC’s can book up to two years in advance. While this
might seem a bit crazy it does happen. Here are some things to think about when choosing your
Before committing to any one DJ you should consider the school your children attend.
You do not want to hire the same MC that all the other kids in the class are using.
Have your child sit in on the meeting with the MC. If your child connects to this person go for it.
If he/she thinks this person is cool and fun then you have won half the battle.
Also, consider the personality of the person you are meeting. If he/she is boring and quiet,
just remember this will be the person who will be running your party.
Do not get caught up in the DJ’s pitch to up sell you on his lighting package or “vendor
cocktail options” you have time to think about these things, they will still be available at
a later date.
Don’t get caught up with hiring 5-10 dancers/party motivators. The rule of thumb is roughly
1 for every 50 guests. If you have too many on your dance floor in can be just as intimidating
as an empty dance floor.
