Are you throwing a party soon? If you are, how good are your entrance plans? Well, you really need to impress as many people- if not everyone- at the party in order to leave a mark. After all, why would you go ordinary when you can go big and extra? Here are 5 tips for making a confident and pleasing party entrance:
1. Choose the right outfit
Dress up according to the time, location, and theme of the party, but in order to stand out, try to blend the vibe of the party with your unique sense of fashion. If every lady in the room is wearing high heels, for example, why not go for a classier look; say with a pair of bejeweled sneakers? When everyone is wearing red and/or black to a Christmas party, why not show up in a blue outfit complemented by shiny, golden jewelry?
Of course, you must not allow your style to run too far away from the event’s expected dress code. How you dress for a college party, for example, should be different from how you dress for other parties, for example, cocktail parties, house parties, birthday parties, etc.
2. Arrive with a bang!
What better way to surprise everyone at the party than by showing up in a flashy car? Think of a limo, a shuttle bus, a party bus, or a charter bus rental– any vehicle that you consider to be luxurious enough for your ideal perfect ride. The idea is to do something out of the box; arrive in an extraordinary style and leave everyone with something to talk about for days.
3. Breakdance your way in
Particularly if you are the party’s center of attention, breakdancing your way to the dance floor will sweep your guests off their feet. You can spice things up by taking the microphone from the DJ or MC and singing a catchy, inviting melody. You can also have someone play with the lights and/or sparklers to make the entrance even flashier.
The key here is to catch everyone by surprise by pulling a totally random stunt.
4. Display appropriate emotions
Your body language should speak for itself. Even if you are anxious, don’t let anyone notice it. If you are desperate to lighten the mood and make people laugh, control yourself and let everything seem normal, natural, and relaxed.
A good way to fight off anxiety and desperation is to look around the room, look into the eyes of random people, and nod at them. By so doing, people will see that you are happy they came to your party and that you are confident in everything you’ve lined up for the party.
5. Be late but not too late
A grand entrance is not only supposed to help you make a great first impression but also a lasting one. And, let’s face it: You have a better shot at making the most of your grand entrance if you are the last person to enter the room. You are assured that everyone will see you and in case someone was flashier than you, you will have the chance to outdo him/her. But be careful not to run too late to the point of making your guests restless.
Because every entrance is affected by the theme and tone of the event, there can’t be a one-size-fits-all grand entrance procedure. With the 5 ideas on this post, however, you will be able to pull off your ideal party entrance without overstretching your budget.
Bottom line: Always ensure that your entrance gets the guests all fired up and ready to party.
