Value Stories

Mommy Bride

Mommy Bride

Venetta Petties is the owner and Principal Planner at Pink Glitter Events. I had the opportunity to work with Hope and Black-Tie Babysitting at a wedding for one of my couples. They have two young boys and wanted to be able to enjoy their wedding day. I referred them to Hope and they hired her to babysit their two sons from 10:00 AM -12:00 AM on their wedding day.

Fast forward to the wedding rehearsal, their youngest son is a mama’s boy and was very clingy to his Mommy. I was concerned if he would acclimate to Hope, so much so that I prayed about it that night.

On the wedding day, I arrived at the venue at 12:00 PM and the Bride gave me a big hug and told me how much she loved Hope and how her son went to her with no issues. We were both so happy because we knew that meant she would be able to enjoy her wedding day.

Hope consistently communicated with me to make sure the kids were there for the special moments. Hope was truly a lifesaver and I will continue to refer her to all my clients. “You were truly a lifesaver! Thank you so much! Waylon and Declan just loved you!” Lauren, Bride

Speaker's Kids

Speaker's Kids

The Run Women's Conference was in it’s 7th year in Dallas, Texas. It’s a conference whose mantra boast “Get ready to run…run your life…run your business.” Dr. Cassandra Bradford puts together a supreme entrepreneurial experience with several speakers and workshops.

One such speaker was Dr. April. She is world renowned and passionate about helping working mothers of children on the Autism spectrum go from financial lack to financial peace. Typically, her father helped watch her three children when traveling for speaking engagements. This time she needed to bring her children with her. She contacted Black-Tie Babysitting and was able to arrange a full day of care for her children. They were able to stay just floors away in the host hotel for the conference. They played games, watched TV and had meals all under the watchful eyes of professional event sitters. “Thank you so much for checking in. The children loved the experience and felt comfortable with both Kristen and you.” Dr. April

Pizza Party

Pizza Party

Romi, a popular Dallas wedding planner contacted Black-Tie in need of, “desperate professional help!” Her couple Perla & Mike were having a large multicultural wedding and reception at La Cima, a luxury city club.

The club is known for its spectacular views of the Dallas skyline and the Canals of Las Colinas. In addition, they have superb culinary creations. Sounds perfect, but the $80 dollar per plate cost made it out of reach for the couple because they anticipated 30 to 40 children guest in addition to their 4 personal children.

They needed an alternative so they could have their wedding at their dream location. With less than three weeks before the wedding Black-Tie was able to step-in and make the difference.

We provided childcare across the street at Aloft Hotel, the children were served pizza and had plenty of games and activities. The new Mr. & Mrs. Lee were able to save over $3,200.
