For the many whose mothers are both physically and positively active in their lives, they would confess - having such mums is the best thing that has ever happened to them.

Mothers are natural planners; right from the conceptual stage in the womb, they start planning on how to give their children the best of life's experiences. Planning their first birthdays to celebrating milestones achieved, in their lives. It is no wonder why their planning skills seem to develop, over time.

For these and many more reasons, some adults are totally confident in their mothers planning skills and many times, hand over the planning of their big day to them. I have had meetings with the bride and grooms, where they said "Sally if my mum likes you, then you are good to go as our event planner..."

Cool mums pay great attention to every detail when planning their children’s wedding. They also know when to get professional help with creative ideas, too.

The main goal is to make sure the children are happy on their big day, and that nothing goes wrong to spoil a single moment for them.

The goal of planner mums aligns with that of Sally Events. Keeping clients happy and creating magical memories for each couple is our end game.

Many clients are always curious to know why they have to spend extra cash on getting more hands when they obviously know that caterers will be bringing their waiters, the drinks vendor will bring their waiters also to serve drinks, so the ready-made question springs up in the mind, “why should I spend more money on getting ushers”

Picture from Miss

The answer to the above question will give you a proper insight and also satisfy your curiosity. Either you are having a private event with just a few numbers of guests or a large event with more guests on your list. You need ushers.

This is your event and those coming are your guests, taking care of everyone by yourself will spell unwanted worries and headache for you and you as the celebrant should not be found running around, worrying about who has not been taken care of. You should be having fun with your family and friends, you have had to spend lots of money on food and drinks, then it is also imperative that you spend a bit more to make sure all the goodies prepared for your guests get to them.
It will be disappointing to find out that some guests were offended and were not attended to properly.
This is why you need to hire the right hands, which will be your extra eyes and ears on your big day.

Welcoming and Sitting of Guests.
Ushers are the first point of contact; they warmly welcome your guests from the entrance of the venue and also take them to their assigned seats.

Ensuring every guest has been served.
Ushers are placed at strategic points at the venue to supervise the serving of food and drinks. They identify guests who have not been served, and also guests who came late and needs to be taken care of.

Easy To Reach
Unlike other vendors or waiters who are not always at the reach of guests, ushers are easy to access and are at the beck and call of guests. They are there to answer questions, direct guests to the convenience and go on quick errands within the venue of the event.

Personal Assistant
Ushers also act as personal assistant to the celebrant or bride and groom. As the celebrant, you may be on stage or with friends who you don't want to leave without company. An usher by your side helps you with things you may need for you and your guests.

Souvenir Distribution
This is usually a delicate matter at events. You need to hand them over to a trusted person. Some prefer to give family members this responsibility especially if the souvenirs are for a selected few. If the souvenir is for all the guests, It is better to hand them over to someone neutral who will share them without bias. This means all your guests will get their gift packs as long as there is an adequate number to go round.

Ushers are also good for security purposes, they are aware when a guest gets up from the table. Some guest asks them to keep an eye on their things while they quickly get up to dance or greet.

Event Coordination
A well-coordinated event is an event that has been thoroughly planned, with people hired to bring the event to execution from start to finish.
Because ushers are involved in every stage of the event it reduces any chance of mismanagement.

I hope I have been able to help you understand why you need ushers at your event. Make sure you only use the best hands. At Sally events, we are always available to serve. This is where you can get the best in event planning and event coordination in Nigeria.
We are just a call and email away.

 Beyond the Aso-Ebi, nice color ambiance, beautiful decorations, music and whatever things you think you could do to make your event a memorable one, you can also create a social media identity for your event that would leave a lasting impression in the virtual world when the event is over.

             Spot the hashtag on their picture

 Recently, a concept became trendy on social media and it's gaining popularity among social media users. It's called hashtagging. Hashtagging is an evolving concept which newlyweds use to create an identity of their events on social media. It's just a way to spice up and hype their very big day.

Spot the hashtag in the picture

 The concept of a hashtag is to make sure memories of your big day stay with you forever in a unique way and also to have pictures, short video clips which you, your friends or guests post on any social media platform to be well organized and categorized for easy access.

             Spot the hashtag on the cake.

 It brings attention to your content with that feeling of “this is our day” It could also allow you to find relevant contents from other people that could give profound insight to your event and the reception. You know, perspectives make a thing appear great. The hashtag allows you to connect with guests and engage other social media based on a common interest or theme.

Spot the hashtag on the prop.
Couples who want their prewedding and wedding pictures trend on social media can create a simple, and easy to remember hashtag. To make your guests remember your hashtag, make sure you keep it unique and short.

Are you thinking about how to create a wedding hashtag? You can use the first alphabet in your names. For instance, Dolapo and Abiodun, our December couple at Sally Events came up with #DAB2017. You can also use the surname of your soon to be husband. Ogaga and Tosin came up with the #Thejohnsons, Nkechi and Tony used #theetekas.

  To make your friends aware of your wedding hashtag, mention your hashtag in all prewedding and wedding pictures you post them on any social media platform. If you have a photo booth area at your wedding include your hashtag on it. Other visible places were guests will be able to spot them are; wedding programs, Table tags, Dance floor, screens, and stage.
Spot the hashtag on the dance floor

If your event is not a wedding, maybe it's a book launch, hotel opening, convention, conference, birthday or seminar; you can come up with something creative, unique and short.
Spot the hashtag on the wedding poster.

Make sure it represents your brand. Using hashtags will allow you to make a wide impression on social media audience and when the music is over, you can surf the Web and reminiscence that memorable scene

At Sally Events, we are unique because we add modern trend and ideas which will make your events a memorable one.
Follow our hashtag: #sallyevents #sallyushers

THE Ogunleye's Wedding

“I am confident about your event planning services and I would like to hire you as my event planner” This was the statement that was echoed in my ears some months back by a potential client. I was as excited as she was about her big day and the plans were rolled out immediately.

Getting married and preparing for your big day needs a great deal of time and planning. Some brides and grooms decide to take matters into their own hands and for the record, some of them have recorded a considerable amount of success while some have been plagued with a negative feedback and that's because there is little or nothing they know about the intricacies of planning their event. 

some think they can handle the planning on their own since they have attended several weddings. But what they really see at the wedding are the end product of a good or bad planning. It's your big day, why go through all the stress of planning it yourself?

 Our Client was smart and knew what she wanted without a pinch of a flaw in her mind, she didn’t want any issues coming up. She needed an event planning company with the competence and the track record of a success to take care of her wedding.

 Her detailed description at every point was a motivation and it also helped when we needed to make big decisions. She said “Sally this is my big day and I trust that your judgment will be the best since you have handled not just one but several events with great success stories”

The level of confidence she had in the output of my services made me go all out to make sure the event went without a hitch.

The bride and groom first met on a raining day. according to their account of how they first met, it was as if God used the rain to bring them together. Dolapo was on her way out one morning when a heavy downpours lead her to keep dry under the shade of Abiodun's house. like a gentleman that Abiodun is, he made sure to save a lady in distress by getting her in and making her comfortable. So it was no surprise that on their wedding day. God approved of their union through light showers of blessing. it was no hindrance at all. As guests arrived and celebrated with the couple.

Sally Events is your one-stop company for your event consultancy and coordination. Be a smart bride like Dolapo call us for your events today.
