Thelma & The Black Carpet Events Would Love To Plan Your Wedding For Free!




A while back I attended a wedding which should have really been great but ended up missing being a total disaster only by a hair's breadth. Family and friends are great and often very well meaning but without someone at the helm of things at a wedding, someone who knows the inner workings of weddings, who knows how to predict and preempt wedding disasters, there's no limit to what can go wrong. 

At the wedding almost everything that could go wrong did! Food got to some people but seemed to avoid a large section of others. Some people had small chops while some others only heard that there might have been small chops. The guests were confused about where to sit, some seated themselves and then got bouncedfrom their seats because "it's for the bride's friends", "it's for the groom's colleagues". As though that embarassment wasn't bad enough the venue was decorated somewhat like a sweet sixteen birthday party, causing me mild headache. The venue came with its own drapery which was in total disaccord with the colours used for the wedding, as though the decor team hadn't  carried out a recce before hand and just showed up that morning with whatever they had in tow. 
      All around guests seemed stressed, the bride looked stressed, her well meaning family and friends gave up and everyone just assumed the "ehn, at least they have done wedding" stance. Of a fact, yes they had. But is that really what anyone wants for their wedding day? Before I left, I had to approach the bride's sister and asked who the wedding planner was. 

"What wedding planner? In this recession?"

"So how was it planned?" I asked. 

"We did it ourselves. It's not like we didn't want to use a wedding planner, it's just that we had to be economical". 

I told her I understood. I told her they should have called me. It was at that moment that I realized that if they had called me, I would have gladly planned and coordinated that wedding for free! I told her this and she nearly cried. She said she thought about it didn't want to take advantage of our relationship, understanding how much investments I've put into my business and understanding that as a young independent woman I need to get paid. 

Of course, I need to get paid but I really love to plan events and the high I get from watching everything all come together seemlessly on the D-day and our brides' relief and gratitude, no one can really put a price tag on that. 

It was then that I decided that I'd like to handle some (budget) weddings, and I would do this for free, only charging for my logistics (transportation etc), otherwise I'd be at a huge loss and we can't have that. LOL. 


So who is getting married soon, or knows someone who is? 

Would you want your wedding planned by a very hands on and dedicated team of workers who's committed to having your mind blown on your wedding day? If you'd like your name on a slot then send an email to thelma@theblackcarpetevents.com with the title Please Plan My Wedding. 


I will take on only 4 couples and I reserve the right to work with only those I chose to work with. 

To be qualified for this 

-Your wedding ought to be between the months of October 2017 to January 2018. 
-Your wedding should be in Lagos state.

  3. Yo! You guys that were thinking of getting married mid next year better reconsider and do it between Oct'17 - Jan '18. Thelmaz got your back!

    I planned my wedding myself and it went well but Ill say - If I had an event planner many things would have gone smoother. I was stressed that day. Sitting in front and I could see that some people had excess drinks on their table but no food. DJ and band were just doing anyhow. I was stressed!
    So yall should take advantage of the opportunity.

    Peace.

  6. God bless you for this!. People often make the cardinal mistake of using Family. I live in Warri and I ve never gone for a wedding where everything went seamless. Food is always a nightmare!. My friend paid 400,000Naira for decor and her mum decided to cook!. Food was late, they forgot the plates, we all ate with rubber plates and spoons. It was terrible. I ve married already, so I can't apply. But i will be forty in 5 years. I will definitely call you up then. This one will not be pro bono!. I want a big big party!.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrΓ©e comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrΓ©e is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
