Tell me about your Sweet 16.
Have you had a daughter turn 16 yet?
What did you do?
How much is too much for Sweet 16?
We celebrated it like any other birthday in my family. I got to pick what was for dinner and we had cake and ice cream. I don't know anyone in real life that had a "sweet 16" party.
Yeah no. I didn't even know there was a concept of throwing a huge party at 16 much less that it was supposed to a mini wedding party huge and outrageous. No one I knew had one either.
Thankfully don't have a daughter and if I did she wouldn't get more than a standard party. (which I usually spend around 300-400 per party at the moment but my kid is still young.
Wouldn't the parents of the other kids have to be invited for this to be the case?
Quoting Anonymous: parties aren't for the kids anymore, its all about the birthday kids parents showing off for the other parents.
As Sweet 16 parties go, 1500 dollars is cheap compared to what the big parties cost.
Quoting maureen813: My daughter turns sweet 16 in July, nothing planned so far but she is talking about a shopping spree with four of her friends, dinner in Boston and a sleepover, she went to one last weekend and the parents rented a limo, took a group of six to see the play, Wicked and paid fir dinner, it must have cost a fifteen hundred dollars and I am being conservative. I turned 16 in 1977 and had cake and pizza with friends...and went to a three dollar movie , times sure have changed!
