I’m Ariette, founder + lead planner.
By day, I’m a therapist-in-training pursuing a Master’s Degree in Clinical Counselling. By creative side hustle, I run around 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 early 2017. Ariette Hung Events was born out of a love for organizing events and bringing people together. I 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 decided to turn this into a small business that I run with talented friendors. Today, Ariette Hung Events is four years old 🙂
Why Wedding + Event Coordination?
As a romantic at heart, organizational nerd, lover of celebrations, and Type 2 through and through, I’m an eager beaver when it comes to organizing events that bring people together. 🥰
Smooth, stylish and sweet events.
Dear engaged couples, congratulations!
As your event planner, my goal is to connect and understand your needs. It’s our mission to make sure you have the most enjoyable and smooth wedding day possible. You should enjoy your big day, so you can leave the tiny details and decoration tasks to us!
Regardless of your wedding/event budget, my team will be creative and resourceful to meet your needs. We’re not afraid of a DIY challenge, and we love the concept of zero-waste events, so we are great at rallying resources when needed. We believe something beautiful and covenantal like weddings should reflect in the presentation. Our team is detail-oriented and here to make your event as smooth sailing as possible. Celebrate with you soon!
The Process of Wedding Coordination
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 set out signage, 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 and the wedding party going on schedule, and keep things running smoothly.
Why wedding coordination?
We highly recommend having a wedding coordinator, especially if the people helping with the planning are part of the wedding party. The reason we say that is because we want those who are celebrating with you to focus on simply enjoying the day with you, and not be running around feeling frazzled. When you hire a team to handle your day, we free up your close friends + family from the stress of making sure your day goes well. We handle the implementation of the plans you’ve carefully planned.
What’s the difference between planning and coordination?
Planning = the organization of plans before an event.
Coordination = the day-of logistical execution of plans made.
We offer both wedding planning & coordination services, with day-of coordination as our most popular package. As of 2020, we are currently available in 2020-2021 for Partial Planning for intimate ceremonies (includes 10 hours of planning) & Wedding Day-Of Coordination.

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