Event highlights : chieftaincy title

Good day beautiful people,

This weekend we had an event at Sango Ota, Ogun State, a rustic town just outside Lagos. Being my first time in Ota I thought it was far from our base in Lagos, so I was excited at the prospect of a road trip *yahhhh* or not because we got there in less than an hour.

The event was a chieftaincy title ceremony and our job included coordination, welcoming guests, crowd control, distribution of brochures, ensuring all guests got food and drinks, distribution of gift packs etc

It was an interesting experience. 

All in all the event was a success.    

Some pictures from the event.

When you're planning your wedding, it's really important to know how to avoid becoming a Bridezilla. It's understandable that a bride wants her wedding to be memorable, but some just go too far. We've all encountered a demanding bride who wants everything to be beyond perfect! So while you're ordering invitations and trying on dresses, follow these tips on how to avoid becoming a Bridezilla … 


The first tip on how to avoid becoming a bridezilla is to remind yourself what the wedding is all about. It's easy to get caught up in all the excitement and focus simply on the wedding day. A wedding is a lovely occasion but it's just the start. There are lots of years to follow! Remember that marriage is about making a commitment and building a relationship together. 


It's your day, but there is no need to turn into a white-clad dictator. If you start trying to micro-manage every detail of the day, then it becomes less about having a wonderful, memorable wedding. You don't want to be obsessive. So don't go overboard.


Listen to the people who are close to you. If they tell you that you're going over the top then they may have a point. Brides can easily get so excited about planning their dream wedding that they lose a sense of perspective. Other people don't have the same emotional investment in your wedding, so they can see when you're in danger of going over the top. 


If you're aware that you're becoming a bit of a Bridezilla, it can help to set some limits for yourself. These can be financial or practical. For example, you can decide that you'll only spend an hour browsing catalogs or deciding which car you want to hire. Financial limits also keep your inner Bridezilla in check. Remember that you don't have to spend up to your maximum budget! 


Many brides feel that their day must be perfect in every way, down to the smallest details. So if the invitations are in the wrong type or the table decorations aren't the exact shade of pink desired, they throw a massive tantrum. Don't be one of those brides who feels that her day will be spoiled by tiny details. It'll only be spoiled if you let it! 


The Bridezilla is often created through a desire to compete with other brides. If someone she knows had 200 guests, then she must have 300. Her venue must be plusher and pricier, her dress more elaborate. How do you stop yourself from following the same path? Use other weddings for inspiration, by all means, but don't try to outdo them. Nobody is going to be impressed by that. 


Finally, remember that there is someone else of equal importance here. Yes, your fiancé. Bridezillas trample through the wedding preparations, forgetting that their husband-to-be exists and that he has a right to opinions on his own wedding. Give him a chance to speak! Listen to his opinions and likes, and don't try to make all decisions for him. 

It's perfectly reasonable that a bride wants to have a wonderful wedding, but there are women who take it to extremes. They're in severe danger of losing perspective of what really matters. The wedding day is only the start of a marriage, and the important thing is to enjoy yourself. That can't really happen if they're obsessing about the napkins. Have you ever encountered a Bridezilla - or even a Groomzilla?

7 things to think about before planning a wedding


After you celebrate the initial joy of being engaged to the love of your life, you might want to consider some of these things before planning a wedding. They can make your planning process a lot easier because they help narrow down your wedding options and put some guidelines into place. So congratulations on your wedding and have fun thinking about all the essentials before planning a wedding! 


This will probably be the first thing that comes to mind before planning a wedding. It will be the determining factor when it comes down to the size, venue, food, dress, and everything else in a wedding. You cannot start to plan all of the intricate details of a wedding without coming to a conclusion on a budget with your significant other.

The size of the wedding will also be a huge thing to think about before planning a wedding. Would you rather have every friend there or have a more intimate wedding with just family and close friends? The size of the wedding has so much more significance than just staying under budget. It can set the tone for how much attention you can pay to each individual guest.

Do you want religion to be a large part of the wedding? Or do you want to spend more time focusing on the entertainment and reception? You need to figure out what you want to prioritize and spend the most time on during the planning process. Whatever you prioritize, whether it be food, the dress, or the connection between you and your significant other, it will be emphasized on your special day and be something you remember about your wedding years down the road.

Not all weddings have a theme, but if you are going to have one, it is best to decide one at the beginning of the planning process. Once you decide the theme, it will help you decide the color scheme, food, and decorations for your theme. Having a theme, even if it is a broad one, will generally help you in the planning process because it helps narrow down your options.

You might not think that the colors have a big impact on your wedding, but they can set the tone for your entire day. Once you determine your colors, you can move on to picking the bouquets, bridesmaid dresses, and decorations. Take some time to really think about your wedding colors and what they will say about the ambiance of your wedding.

Before you start thinking about the decorations, venue, and details of the wedding, you should contemplate having a wedding planner or going it alone. If you are well-versed in party planning, you might feel confident in planning a whole wedding without professional help. But if you are a planning rookie and it fits into your budget, having a wedding planner can make the process a whole lot easier and less stressful.

You might be so excited about your wedding you just want to jump into everything, but it will pay off in the end if you approach wedding planning in a tactical manner. You want the planning process to be as stress free as possible. You also want to make sure that you and your significant other are able to share the planning process and make it an equal effort. This is such a special time, preparing for a special day. Rather than go through it with no rhyme or reason, take the time to sit down as a couple and figure out how to go about things. 

Wedding planning can either be such a beautiful time, or it can be the most stressful time of your life. Before you go around looking for decorations, a venue, a dress, and everything in between, try to follow these tips on what to think about before planning a wedding. It can make your planning process a whole lot easier if you have some of your bases covered before you start. What did you think of these things to think about before planning a wedding? Do you have any advice on going about the wedding planning process? What did you find most important when planning a wedding?
