MS Event Group’s Planning Tips for Sweet Sixteens


Sweet Sixteen! It only happens once, so you need to make it count. Here are some tips from MS Event Group to get you on your way to the best birthday party ever.

1. Talk to your parents about budget. Remember more money doesn’t necessarily make it more fun – it’s about making it relaxed, and memorable.

2. Ask around your school if they know if any other events that night so it doesn’t conflict with yours. This way people won’t have to choose between the two.

3. Find a popular place to have it. Rent a venue where you know everyone is familiar with and loves. You could also have it at your own home to save on money. This will allow you to spend more to decorate it, or to spend on party favours for guests.

4. Choose a theme. Something like “Summer Fun”, with items like beach chairs and sand.

5. Lighting, atmosphere, and great music all contribute to your party being off the hook. A company such as MS Event Group offer games, cool lighting, and award winning DJ’s to get everyone going. This can make or break your birthday!

6. Have cool invitations to support your theme, but keep invitations to people you actually know and care about. Keep it exclusive, about 100 if you are having a really big party. Make people want to come to your party. Send out your invites at least a month before the event.

7. Make sure the entertainment keeps your guests entertained. Meet with your DJ ahead of time to discuss the evening. Go over the agenda of gifts, announcements, dancing, and general idea of music that people will enjoy.

8. Eat well. Food is a must. Be sure to have all of your favorite foods there, and foods to match your theme–again if there’s a very popular restaurant that everyone goes to, get your food catered there. Food is a good way to keep the party going if things start to calm down or get kind of dry. Make sure you have a lot of healthy food like carrots, tons of apples and salads, and don’t forget drinks like water. You want to make your guests happy and healthy at all times.

9. Make sure your parents are part of the party. Have them follow you around, this is your party, and there’s a good chance they paid for it, so enjoy it with your parents, and if they care that much about watching over you and the party, tell them to hire a body guard (nicely of course!)

Fort Smith Arkansas 2014 Wedding Trends

The MS Event Group team is looking ahead to the upcoming wedding season. There are several wedding trends that have emerged that we think are going to be big in 2014.

So to help you prepare for these, check out our list of 2014 wedding trends!


Metallic Color Schemes

From wedding dresses to stationery, linens to cakes, expect to see a lot of gold and silver next year! We think this trend will carry over into décor, as well.

Art Deco
Inspired by The Great Gatsby (both the book and the 2013 movie), we’re expecting to see lots of 1920s-era décor and themes in 2014.

Unique Entertainment
Candid Photo-booths have been popular at weddings for several years now, but expect to see new types of “alternative entertainment” this year. We’re thinking  Candid Video Booths that record 15 seconds of video of your guest congratulating you will be a nice feature to offer. New for 2014 will be the Candid Cube with Instagram. Your guest can take pictures with their smart phones, then use a custom HashTag (#MooreWedding) then walk over to the Candid Cube table and chose their prints that instantly print out. This will be a big hit.

Halter Neckline Wedding Dresses
See ya later, strapless! Halter Necklines were all over the runways this season. It’s a great look for brides who want to show off some gorgeous shoulders.

Radiant Orchid
Pantone just announced the Color of the Year for 2014, and it’s a pretty pinky-purple that is a beautiful hue for wedding décor. Purple was the hot hue a few years back, so is it making a comeback? We’ll soon find out!


Custom Hashtags
Gone are the days of placing disposable cameras on guest tables – now it’s all about the Instagram hashtag as a means of collecting guest photos! MS Event Group is helping our couples create slideshows where guest use a HashTag is used to inform guests of their Photo slidehow (#nickandsara for example) so that all of the photos of their wedding will be easily scene on the video screen.

We’re predicting that this beautiful bloom will be the hot flower for 2014. They come in a wide variety of colors and create such a lush, unique look!

“Naked” Wedding Cakes
We’re not trying to be crass here, but wedding cakes without any icing are becoming a quite the trend for rustic, casual weddings.



Hanging Décor
From lanterns to flowers to ribbons, crepe paper, even parasols – couples are clamoring for décor hanging from the ceiling! It’s a striking and dramatic look that turns the traditional centerpiece upside-down!

Bridesmaid Dress Color = Mint
Pale green bridesmaid dresses were all over the runways at bridal market, so expect to see this minty fresh color at spring and summer weddings in 2014!

We encourage couples to think outside the box. Be “Un-Normal” and create a fun, unique wedding that guest remember forever!
