Hi, I’m Ariette!
By day, I’m a therapist-in-training pursuing a Master’s Degree in Clinical Counselling. By side hustle, I run around town coordinating people’s wedding days and special events; I am also a content writer and I podcast in my free time. I started this wedding coordination business in 2017, out of a love for organizing events and bringing people together. I first got into all of this in university when friends asked me for help with weddings, and upon realizing I had a knack (and love) for it, I began to do this event coordination thing a lot more. But, as much as I enjoy it, it’s also a lot of work to do for free! Thus, this side hustle began and now, Ariette Hung Events has grown into a small team and we absolutely love helping our clients host events!

Why Wedding Coordination?
I am a romantic at heart, an organizational nerd and I like to help others. Pair those together and you get someone eager and efficient to plan and coordinate events for others!
(Plus, I have a great team and they make it a fun time!)
Most importantly, I love love. So, I love weddings 🙂
For you: A smooth, stylish and sweet day to cherish.
As an empath and an event planner, my goal is always to connect with clients to understand your needs and make sure you have the most enjoyable and smooth wedding day possible, without you needing to worry about anything on the day-of. You should enjoy your big day! Regardless of budget, my team will be creative and resourceful to meet your needs. We hope to celebrate with you soon or to help you plan your next event! Please email us for an initial meeting to chat about your event at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here to help you coordinate your big day.
What is coordination exactly?
A few weeks before the wedding, we’ll have a meeting to make sure everything is taken care of and get on the same page. We’ll do a venue walk-through and a rehearsal on the week of the wedding. On the day-of, we’ll get to your venue to help set out signage, place cards, arrange party favours where they should be, light candles, oversee the caterers and decorations get set-up, and prep the wedding party before entrances. During the event, we will keep you on schedule, and keep things running smoothly.
I’m planning my wedding myself; and my family members are pretty involved… Do I require day-coordination?
We highly recommend it! Even the best planning couples need it. Hiring out keeps you from needing to ask a friend/family member to do it (it might be a lot of pressure and stress for them!), and even if you’re organized, someone still needs to make sure that all your carefully made plans is well executed! We can speak from experience that hiring a professional takes a lot of pressure of friends/family (because when they’re working your wedding, they’re really working) and can help things run smoothly.
What’s the difference between planning and coordination?
Planning = the logistical organization that takes place BEFORE an event
Coordination = the logistical execution/implementation of plans made
We offer both planning & coordination services, with day-of coordination as our most popular package.

*Update for 2020-2021: We have added savoury treats by request!
What sets us apart from other wedding planner vendors is that we offer dessert catering, so you don’t need to look for a separate vendor if you’re trying to keep things simple and love a sweet two-in-one deal. Our team’s Cherry Tsui, a GBC Chef School alumni baker, will make your dessert dreams come true.
Love is sweet, have some treats!
