FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions about planning a Mitzvah

How much does a photo booth cost for a bat or bar mitzvah party?

A typical bat mitzvah can run anywhere from $1500 upwards (we have seen mitzvah celebrations cost in the 5 figures!). So how much do you need? It really depends on how elaborate you would like it to be.

A simple gathering of friends and family to share a delicious meal at a modest venue can cost under $1500 if it is kept to a small group and held at a reasonably priced venue.

More elaborate celebrations that include live music entertainment, photographers, photo booth rental, candy bars, and meals can easily reach over $10,000.
The key is establishing a budget for the event and working with professional event vendors to ensure your celebration goes flawlessly.

How far in advance should I start planning a mitzvah party?

When planning any formal celebration, it is essential to remember that most event professionals book dates approximately 1 year in advance due to providing services for weddings. Fridays and Saturdays are prime dates for any event vendor, and they work to book those dates as soon as possible. Suppose you would like your celebration to be on a Friday or Saturday. In that case, we suggest you secure your event vendors as soon as you set the date and reserve the venue. Waiting until a few months before the big day will have you facing booked vendors.

Where can I find entertainment for my mitzvah party?

Entertainment is the key to any social gathering. To celebrate, you should plan a party with your closest friends and family. The time and place should be appropriate to keep the mood fun and happy. People will quickly forget the food and snacks, but they will long remember the good times.

A good DJ or band is a foundation for a fun night. But it does not stop there. Adding the fun of a photo booth for a mitzvah brings joy to a much higher level. A level your guests will love. And best of all, your child can create unforgettable memories with their friends and family, all captured in the photo booth.
