Why we love planning your wedding day…
The greatest compliment we receive is when our couples tell us that they could not have had the wedding experience without our team. We love to hear that their wedding day was better than they could have ever hoped for. This confirms to us how essential a wedding planner can be and how it can make your wedding day the ‘best day of your life’.
Being asked to plan a wedding becomes a very personal journey between the planner and the couple, and we do not take this role lightly. We are there from the beginning to the end to guide and support you every step of the way.
“The team helped create our dream wedding.”
I want to take this opportunity to thank [Hoi An Events Weddings] properly. It truly was THE best time of our lives! I keep remembering all the amazing parts of the day and all the details that were put in place. Without your expertise, experience, as well as calm and completely lovable nature, we would not have had a party even close to that.
Nothing went wrong in my opinion and it really couldn’t have been any better. Our guests are raving that it was the best wedding they have ever been to (including their own!). Thank you for putting up with all our demands and making us feel incredibly special. Everything was flawless.
Please thank the team, as they were the silent angels that helped create our dream wedding. ‘Sad it’s all over, but incredibly content. Thank you thank you thank you!

“Hoi An Events understands western weddings.”
My Hoi An beach wedding wouldn’t have been the same (or possible) without the help of Hoi An Events Weddings. I signed up for a wedding package with a beach resort in Hoi An, however I found there were many things that weren’t included.
The reason I first contacted Hoi An Events Weddings was to find a local wedding celebrant, as my own searches kept coming to dead ends. Nadine and Simone not only helped me find a celebrant but also organize flowers, a welcome lunch for our guests, my hens night in Hoi An, and professional hair & make-up for the wedding. Nadine took us to the florist in the local market and acted as translator/negotiator so the florist knew what we were after. When the bouquets arrived to our suite on the wedding day, I almost cried. The flowers were so beautiful and exactly what I wanted!
We had a welcome lunch at the Red Bridge the day before the wedding. The food and service were amazing, and it was a great way for all of our guests to relax with some food and wine while getting to know one another. My hens afternoon/evening consisted of an ultimate pamper session at a local salon, complete with champagne and canapés whilst our pedicures were being done. Following this, we enjoyed the most amazing Vietnamese meal at a top-class Hoi An restaurant. We sipped (hmmm…actually downed) cocktails whilst looking out at the lanterns on the river. Our celebrant was Kerre. We couldn’t have asked for more in a celebrant and are so lucky to have found her. She wrote our ceremony specifically for us, was available to meet us for a rehearsal, and on the day made us feel relaxed and very at ease. It felt effortless.
Hoi An Events Weddings completely understands western weddings. They provide local insight and ensure you and your guests get the most from the beautiful town and surroundings of Hoi An. With the simplicity of a handful of e-mails leading up to the wedding, my time in Hoi An was relaxed and organized, and my wedding was the most fantastic day of my life. Also a big thank you to Miriam for her fun-loving energy and direct approach. I appreciated her patience with the hair, and of course as the competent music player. Also, a big thank you to Nick and the rest of the amazing Red Bridge staff– I couldn’t suggest a better location for a wedding ceremony and a villa for the bridal party.
“They were efficient, creative and worked to meet our every need.”
Even though we are residents in Hoi An, we decided to use Hoi An Events for our Vow Renewal Ceremony and celebration, and it proved to the best decision we made. They were efficient, creative and worked to meet our every need in order to execute a flawless and magical day.
We chose Nadine to be the celebrant for our vow renewal. She helped us prepare a ceremony that was personal, meaningful and magical. She also shared many ideas with us, but we never felt pressured to include anything that wasn’t right for us and our occasion. She worked with us to make sure that the renewal was personal and reflected us. On the day of the event, we had a couple of emotional moments, but she left us in no doubt that we had chosen the perfect celebrant and ceremony.
Our wedding planner was Miriam, and she worked tirelessly to execute the most amazing day. She took the time to understand what we wanted, offered great ideas and was always mindful of our budget. As a result, we were able to spend money on the things we really wanted but also take advantage of cheaper options, such as using local flowers. Her suggestions of things we hadn’t considered helped to make the event even more special. Even the incredible pressure of deciding to hold our special day less than a month after we first contacted them did not phase Miriam. Her brilliant organizational skills meant everything came together without us feeling stressed about the day. We adored the creative work that Simone designed. She swiftly made our ideas a reality, happy to ensure that the designs were perfect for us.
The day of the ceremony, the team ensured that everything went like a dream and we didn’t have to worry about anything at all. Our guests couldn’t stop telling us what an amazing day it was and we agreed. A month before, we could never have imagined that we were going to have such a perfect day, all thanks to the incredible team at Hoi An Events Weddings. They are great to work with, executing professionally but with a friendliness and personal touch that makes you feel happy to be in their hands.
“It was really the best day ever!”
We’ve had 3 months of married life and we wanted to say thanks again for setting up the perfect wedding. Every time we talk to our guests, we keep getting told new highlights of the week in Vietnam and the wedding ceremony. We really feel [Hoi An Events Weddings] went well beyond what we could have hoped for from our wedding planners. Here are a few of the many great points we wanted to specifically thank you for.
Firstly thanks for your support and patience in planning. The thousands of questions we asked always got friendly advice and replies. Next thanks for suggesting Hoi An Boutique Resort. It was so beautiful, the staff was friendly, and the ceremony went without a hitch! They even supplied the perfect weather, which we had ordered in advance! Thanks for setting up a week of activities. This made the whole week so stress free, we just had to turn up and have fun with the guests. Every tour company and every restaurant you suggested were great. We still dream about the food and cocktails at Mango Mango! Thanks as well for suggesting Justin Mott Visuals for the photos. Every one of them is a work of art. And we had lots of fun doing them. The only problem is choosing which are our favorites. My dad summed it up well during his speech, saying that “spending a week together with the guests beforehand made the wedding all the more special, because by then we all knew each other and it was the perfect end to the holiday.”
Then to the wedding day… thanks your support on the day and for keeping everything running to plan, even when everyone jumped in the pool! We couldn’t believe during the ceremony when the words to our wedding song were handed out in German and translated into English. We never asked for this, but it was a great touch from you. The table looked perfect, and the food and drinks were great. We could go on, but just wanted you to know we are so grateful, and it was really the best day ever!
“Everything Hoi An Events Weddings put together was tailored to our tastes and requests.”
When we met Nadine at the Boutique Hotel back in February of 2014, we couldn’t have imagined how fantastic [she’d] be as a wedding planner. We read [her] online reviews but honestly [she was] so much more than words could convey through writing. Throughout the whole planning process, right until the last event, [she] seriously went above and beyond, making our days quite literally flawless.
We wanted to write to thank [her] for [her] tremendous planning, patience and attention to detail with our wedding. Everything [she] put together was tailored to our tastes and requests, from the personalized welcome packs, large signs, personalized ceremony, to the flower arrangements. We also really appreciate all the small times [she] went out of [her] way to make sure our wedding events went smoothly– from the wacky bridesmaid dresses to dealing with our not always so easy guests, and finally having a marquee made at Red Bridge (it probably would have rained if that wasn’t put up…). [Her] flexibility and easy-going attitude was great to have around.
“We had a stress-free, beautiful day with no hiccups.”
Our wedding day was the most amazing day thanks to Nadine and her team at Hoi An Events Weddings.
When we made the decision to get married in Hoi An we attempted to plan the wedding ourselves. Thank goodness we were put in touch with Nadine early on, as she gave us all the options and valuable advice from her years of experience planning weddings. From the table favours and flowers to hair, make-up and photographer, everything was taken care of. All I needed to do was find my perfect dress.
Our guests had an incredible time and we had a stress-free, beautiful day with no hiccups! Thank you Nadine & team!
“Their attention to detail and professionalism was very much appreciated.”
My husband and I are both from Canada. However, our heritage is Vietnamese. My husband’s family is from North Vietnam and my family is from South Vietnam, so we decided to get married in the central, beautiful city of Da Nang. Living so far from our wedding destination, we needed all the help we could get. We met up with Nadine from Hoi An Events Weddings one year before our wedding, during our vacation in Vietnam, and knew instantly that we would like to work with them.
Throughout the year, we corresponded with Nadine and Simone via email and Skype. Nadine and Simone were very helpful and accommodating, not to mention a pleasure to work with! They had some great suggestions and ideas that really helped us bring our wedding day to life. Their suggestions, from having a Welcome Dinner at the Red Bridge and recommendations on vendors, celebrant, etc, all added to the most wonderful wedding experience for us and our guests. Hoi An Events Weddings really assisted in bringing the vision of our wedding day to fruition, from the colours to the decor to our video booth. Everything exceeded our expectations.
We were so excited to arrive in Vietnam for our wedding, and to meet with Simone to hammer our wedding details. Our week in Vietnam before the wedding was full of errands, however, all the preparation (including hair trial, ceremony rehearsal, etc). But since it was all organized by Hoi An Events Weddings, it was still a stress-free time..
Then came the big day. The wedding schedule was packed and hectic. However, because of the event team everything went very smoothly and according to schedule. We were so thankful to have Simone and Mi riam with us on our wedding day to keep us on track. We were also incredibly happy with our celebrant, Lee Nichols, who assisted us in the most beautiful wedding ceremony. We couldn’t have imagined doing all this without the help of Hoi An Events Weddings and their team. Their attention to detail and professionalism was very much appreciated. We look back at our wedding day and have nothing but warm memories.
Thank you Hoi An Events Weddings for making our Wedding Day so perfect!
