You may think you have all the bases covered — the outfits, the venue, the DJ, the photographer, the favors.
What about the day of your child’s Bar Bat Mitzvah? That’s when many families forget about the little, but important items, that come in handy.

Extra Clean White Shirt
Have on hand an extra shirt like this one from J. Crew for the Bar Mitzvah boy and/or husband who eats french fries with ketchup…oops!
Cash For Tipping Vendors
Get those envelopes ready as tips are not always included in your vendor contracts. Figure out who you will be tipping before hand and have your labeled envelopes ready to hand out to your vendors. You can also have the catering manager, event planner or general manager do it for you.
If the venue does not provide a bathroom toiletry basket, you will need to pick up some of these essential items.
A Binder Of Important Information
The week before your celebration, you should plan to bring your venue manager some of your important lists – ideally in a binder. If someone is late or doesn’t show, you need to be able to get in touch with them without having to scramble for their contact information at the last minute. You should have copies of the following:
1. All vendors names and contact info
2. An alphabetical list of favors for the young guests
3. Your child’s candle lighting poems and which guests will be honored
4. Any other important speeches by Mom/Dad
5. If transportation is being provided, a list of who will be on the bus
6. Photographer list – Important family members to get in pictures
Not only will you need something to hold your child’s gifts, but at the end of your celebration, you might be bringing home decor, flowers, food, signage items, the sign-in book and more.
