Sweet Sixteen Candle Lighting Ceremony | NJ DJ

Sweet Sixteen Candle Lighting Ceremony in the BEGINNING or END?

A Candle Lighting Ceremony is traditionally done towards the end of the party. But what if it was in the Beginning?

First off, everyone can agree that a Sweet Sixteen is supposed to be the party of the birthday girl’s dreams. Especially relevant, the Candle Lighting Ceremony is there for the Sweet Sixteen to showcase how much she loves all of her guests. However she wants it done – is how it gets done!

However, today young people get very caught up in the expectations set by others and can sometimes get stuck with fear of outside of the box thinking.

Luminique Events Group tries to push every party we work with to innovate and go outside of their comfort zone! That’s the only way to assure greatness!

 

In addition, here at Luminique Events Group we have been partying with a lot of Sweet Sixteens who prefer to do their Candle Lighting Ceremony RIGHT AFTER the Grand Introduction in the beginning of the party!

WHAT?!

So it kinda goes like this…

7PM – guests arrive

7:15 – Sweet Sixteen is introduced. Special Dance. Welcome Speech by Parents.

7:45 – Candelighting Ceremony

8:15 – Dinner

8:45/8:50 – Dance

9:45 – Dessert

10 – Dance till the end of theoretical party – 11 PM

We totally agree with this idea of doing the Candle Lighting Ceremony in the beginning of the evening. Here’s why – Sweet Sixteens, although traditional, really do not have as many formalities as some other formal events. Some events like Weddings and Mitzvahs require a huge overall time slot to be set aside strictly for formalities. As you see here with the proposed party model, it is possible to finish Sweet Sixteen Formalities in under an hour. This way, there is more time for talk with family and friends. Also, there will be more time for eating the delicious food.

But more importantly, this leaves much more time for dancing – which is why you hired Luminique Events Group in the first place!

 

Yet, we do see the downside of bulking the formalities together. Although it is possible to finish all formalities of a Sweet Sixteen, this does mean a total hour just about of your guests sitting in their seats, watching formalities! Sometimes guests can get antsy, but they will find the patience was worth it while the rest of the party goes generally undisturbed!

Of course, Luminique Events Group does not deter Sweet Sixteens from doing what they like too! We are just presenting another side of the same book!

Keeping things traditional in events like these sometimes is for a lot more than just the party. Traditions are important to maintain and Luminique agrees with that. When the Sweet Sixteen Candle Lighting Ceremony is done towards the end of the evening, as it usually is, time is still divvied up proportionately.

The majority of our Sweet Sixteens go something like this:

7PM – guests arrive

7:30 – Sweet Sixteen is introduced. Special Dance. Welcome Speech by parents.

8 – Dinner

8:30 – Dance

9:15 – Candle Lighting Ceremony / Dessert

10:15 – Dance till the end of theoretical party – 11 PM

Check out why Luminique Events Group believes a Grand Introduction Ceremony is a great idea for many events HERE!

When the Sweet Sixteen makes her choice, Luminique Events Group will be there to assure that the vision comes to fruition! Happy planning and we will see you on the dancefloor!

Josh & Amanda’s Wedding @ The Bethwood

JOSH & AMANDA HEAD TO THE BETHWOOD FOR THEIR NJ WEDDING

& LUMINIQUE EVENTS GROUP IS RIGHT THERE TO PROVIDE THE DJ FOR THEIR SPECIAL DAY!

 

Luminique Events Group provides more than just a Party – but a whole night of events.

 

    1. We provided a soundtrack for the beautiful outdoor, courtyard Ceremony

 

    1. We provided a soundtrack for the elegant Cocktail Hour in the Cortez Room

 

    1. We hosted a wild, warm party for an awesome group of people with the Professional Aid & Passion from Andrew the Maitre’D

 

TRULY A NIGHT TO REMEMBER

 

We believe there is are two specific factor that helped this night turn into such a success – professionalism & passion. The Two P’s.

An event can take place within almost any setting/caliber. However, when people are spending money on beautiful venues and vendors, they are not just buying a product by any means – but a service. A service that is supposed to be seasoned and tailored after many years of experience and personalization.

 

ANY HUMAN CAN GO OUT AND SPEND $10,000+ ON NICE LOOKING WEBSITES AND GEAR – BUT IT IS HOW YOU USE THESE TOOLS THAT MAKE YOUR “PRODUCT” SPECIAL AND DEMANDED.

 

Luminique Events Group + The Bethwood had that insight and I believe it was apparent.

When a Venue and a Vendor both hold their job to the highest standard and want to express that to a client – an event is the best hands it could possibly be in.

The staff at The Bethwood understands that working together instead of against each other is the only way to get anything done, ever.

 

SO THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WE DID!

 

Please, if any of you head over to The Bethwood soon, tell the staff, especially Andy – “THANKS” from Luminique Events Group! We strongly encourage clients to at least consider this beautiful location.

 

JOSH & AMANDA – THANK YOU FOR LETTING LUMINIQUE EVENTS GROUP BE APART OF YOUR ONCE IN A LIFE TIME EVENT. WE ARE HONORED TO HAVE HELPED AND BEEN APART OF IT!

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE BRIDE & GROOM!

Luminique Events Group x The Fiesta x Laxamana Wedding

The Fiesta | Brian & Jennine Laxamana’s Wedding

The Fiesta facilitated a “Dream-Come-True” Wedding – Brian & Jennine Laxamana.

& Luminique Events Group could not have been more honored to be apart of it

Sunday Afternoon spent at The Fiesta with Luminique Events Group? Sounds like a great time. Combine that triad of awesomeness with a madly in love couple…and you have beauty

Luminique Events Group showed up to provide the serenade for the Ceremony and Cocktail Hour. Needless to say, we had the Reception covered too. During the Reception, we also had our one-of-a-kind Photobooth entertaining some of the guests who had to warm up before they hit the dancefloor. AKA, our second home.

Throughout the whole night, we had our close colleague, Nick, walking around taking pictures and documenting the whole night (PEEP THE RECAP BELOW VVVV )

The Fiesta is a beautiful venue. What is a beautiful venue without immaculate staff? This is not an understatement; The Fiesta Staff is one of the best you will have the pleasure of experiencing.

SHOUTOUT TO OUR GOOD FRIEND ABUS WHO HELPED LEAD THE PARTY WITH US THE ENTIRE NIGHT!

Make sure to see his quick cameo in the video 😉

We ate, we drank, we sang, we celebrated,

and most of all, we made memories together

Sometimes in all the excitement of a Wedding, we can forget what a Wedding truly means.

and it means two people becoming one; a fusion of two families, making one big extended family having the ability to make a big extended amount of memories together.

True Love is hard to come by in today’s crazy world, luckily enough for us here at Luminique

we are experiencing it frequently.

BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE GALLERY FOR THIS AWESOME WEDDING!!!
