Inspired by Moroccan lanterns we’re using to decorate an upcoming wedding ceremony, today’s post is dedicated to Moroccan wedding ideas. Whether you are a part of Moroccan culture or just appreciate its aesthetics, the jewel tones and intricate details can be incorporated into all parts of your own wedding. Here are a few ways to add Moroccan spice to your own wedding:
Bring the indoors out!
Don’t be afraid to move traditionally indoor setups outside. If you’re lucky enough to have your wedding in an area with great weather, outdoor draped fabric and seating section can provide for dramatic and comfortable social backdrops.
Lounge style seating with rugs, pillows and cushions in shades of reds, oranges and purples.
Color, Color, Color!
Line tables with lanterns to save on flowers and create a dreamy, candlelit atmosphere. This makes a beautiful display down a long table, as well as grouped as a centerpiece on round/square tables.
More Moroccan-inspired ideas to try:
- In place of cigar rollers, set up a hookah lounge. In larger cities, many event rental companies can provide hookahs.
- Hire belly dancers to entertain during dinner. Search for a belly dance troupe or school in your city and call to hire dancers.
- Serve family-style or passed hors d’ouevres that include hummus, tabbouleh, and stuffed grape leaves.
- Have henna artists available to guests during the reception so they can take home an artistic memory of your wedding. Or, hold a henna party with your female family and bridesmaids the night before the wedding.
