Debut 101

By Apple Mathay Bruselas




Having a debut soon and have no idea where to start? Before you begin browsing through debut themes in the Philippines or debut packages in Manila, you’d want to start setting up the foundation of your big day with these key details:


1. Budget




Coordinate with your parents to come up with a budget. All the other details should be dependent on it; this will help you narrow down for the best choices instead of being all over the place.


2. Guest List




When you’ve come up with a guest list that fits your budget, it’s time to choose a venue that has enough space for dancing but not too much wherein your party might look a bit awkward.


3. Venue




After setting a date and deciding the approximate head count, it’s important to book the venue in advance. When choosing a venue, make sure it’s not only where you’ll feel comfortable in but also a location where it’s easily accessible for your friends and family.


4. Outfit




The most fun part-- the debutante’s outfit! Many designers and couturiers have years of experience when it comes to creating beautiful outfits for debuts so don’t be shy to tell them a bit about yourself and what’s your go-to style. The best outfits come from good coordination.


5. Theme




You can also decide on the theme before the outfit, either way, they’ll both depend on each other. Some debutantes have written requests on the invites asking guests not to wear a certain colour -- which is completely okay, so don’t be shy if you want to be the only one wearing a certain colour, it’s normal!


6. Program




You can keep it simple with some games, have the 18 Treasures, Roses, and or Candles portion, or go all out formal with a debutante cotillion-- you decide! It’s your 18th birthday after all!


7. Souvenirs




Seal the night by sending off your guests with memorabilia thanking them for coming and celebrating with you. Many suppliers have a vast array of souvenirs for you to choose from whether it be keychains, magnets, they have it all.
