The Sweet 16 Candle Lighting Ceremony is performed as a "highlight" of the party. The birthday girl chooses 16 people or groups of people who are special to assist in lighting each of the 16 candles. Prior to the lighting a brief verse is read on why they are special. Once they are called up to light the candle a related song is played.
We are experienced with this special occasion. Not all DJ's offer this unique ceremony. We pride ourselves with offering coordinated music with each candle lighting and assistance to the birthday girl from start to finish! We offer free consultation and instructional planning on this event so that no detail is left out. Each of the 16 candles holds a special meaning. The first candle is for the girl's/boy's parents. The second candle is for the god parents. The third candle is for the siblings. (If there are no siblings, then this candle can represent the grandparents.) Candles 4, 5, 6, and 7 are for the rest of the family members. Candles 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14 are for friends.
Candle 15 is for the girl's/boy's best friend or friends. The 16th candle is for the boyfriend or a very close male/female friend. Some add a 17th candle which represents good luck.
The shoe ceremony is common at sweet sixteen parties. In this ceremony, the birthday girl sits down in a chair while her grandfather, uncle, godfather, or father approaches her with high heels on a decorative pillow. The girl would traditionally be wearing flat shoes, such as slippers, and the father ceremoniously helps her into her new high heels. This is symbolic of the girl transitioning into a woman.
This ceremony is similar to the shoe ceremony, except the mother approaches with a tiara instead of shoes. She places it on her daughter's head to symbolize her becoming a woman. Sometimes this is combined with the shoe ceremony, so that two people approach the birthday girl, one with a pillow with high heels, and the other with a pillow & tiara.
The girl and her father dance to a slow-
In cases where the boy is celebrating, the sexes are simply switched as he dances with his mother.
Video Montage (Slide Show)
At most Sweet Sixteens, a DJ often brings along a large projection screen and projector to show a video montage set to music of the birthday girl containing pictures starting from when she was a baby and getting older, usually ending with pictures of her in her sweet sixteen wear. This is either made by the DJ with photos provided from the family of the birthday girl, by the parents, or by a sibling. The guests can either sit down and watch this montage, or it could be playing in the background while the guests dance.
