We are so grateful to the Glitz and Glam team for all their hard work and dedication, but most of all grateful to my personal friend Yinka.
I was very last minute with coordination for our wedding. You know how you have ideas in your head, but you think people would find it hard to put the pieces together? Well that was me weeks before my wedding. I knew what I wanted but did not know who would be the best person to make that idea/dream a reality.
I have known the owner of Glitz and Glam Events for 11 years and she is an on-time/ready to go/ take on new challenges kind of person. I reached out to her, but what made me know I was in good hands was the 1st question she asked me; what do you want to see at your wedding? Considering my very short planning time line. The ease and worry free approach demonstrated by Yinka also helped me know I was in good hands. Vendors, ideas, pictures and the constant follow-up calls to make our wedding, a reality was simply unbelievable.
Fast forward to the Wedding Day:
That day was a snow day, so it really slowed down everything such as that my hair appointment was 1 hr delayed and my makeup artist did not show up period due to the storm. What a good start, either way I knew I was in good hands, we had communicated almost everyday before the wedding and had mapped out and walked me through how the reception would play out, which means she was in communication also with the venue manager etc. Everything is in the details!! When we walked in, it was just was we wanted. I can play back that day as it happened.
Thanks so much Yinka

Glitz & Glam Events coordinated Aso Ebi for 30 of my friends for my traditional wedding. Yinka provided excellent service by sourcing the fabric, packaging it and delivering it in a timely manner to my friends/family. This was convenient for my friends and I. I highly recommend her services to anyone! She will keep your mind at ease.

Thank you Yinka (Glitz & Glam Events Company) for meeting with us several times and going through all our requisites in selecting the perfect fabric for our bridal party. They all looked amazing and elegant in their outfits.
We cannot thank you enough for all your help in making our day so special and perfect, your guidance, advice and support coordinating both the Engagement and Wedding gave us and our guests a fabulous day to remember. With your attention to detail on both days everything ran smoothly. Even the sudden changes of plan caused by dwindling time, appeared seamless to us, and dare I say it, made the day even better. We just wish it could have gone on for longer. Our dream of Simple, Elegant and Wow, was exceeded far beyond on our expectations, thank you so much.

OKAY!!!! So I knew I was going to have a wedding in December 2015 but the planning involved was a no go area for me. I did try to plan it my self but at the end of the 1st month I knew I wasn’t up for it with the new baby and the rest my already growing family. Then a friend referred me to Yinka. Best decision ever. She basically took care of what was needed but still gave me the opportunity to make the final decision despite any advice she gave. I liked the fact that communication was not a problem, she would come to any level to make sure that a certain matter was properly understood.
Yinka kept things on track and brought simplicity into the planning. Knowing how a wedding crowd can be (family and friends) Yinka kept it 150% professional and made sure the day ran as smoothly as possible.
As for the issue of asoebi, it could not have been more effortless, all I did was choose the material and Yinka took care of the rest (ordering, packaging, distribution etc). Infact it was the most effortless part of the wedding planning on my part, family and friends were more than pleased. I would happily refer Glitz & Glam to anyone one I know needing a wedding planner. With my family’s many milestones ahead, I will definitely be calling on Yinka again to plan and execute our other family events.
To end my wedding rant, my day was beautiful from the planning to the décor and the execution of activities, it all came together nicely just like I wanted. My husband and I couldn’t have been more pleased.
