There is nothing more exciting that a wedding with lots of colour. Why? Because it can be so easy to do it wrong, and to do it right is something to brag about. I love colour, and especially when it has a Middle Eastern influence.
A few ideas when putting together a Moroccan inspired wedding.
- Use lots of colour… pink and orange go so well together and you can’t go wrong with gold and yellow
- Lots of little lanterns and tea light holders look amazing, you can even use less flowers and more candles, which might work out to be more cost effective as you get to re use the lanterns after.
- Add fabrics and textures to your table decor. (preferably in bright colours, such as hot pink)

And now the big question is, where and how would you create this look here in Dubai? That’s easy… you can buy colourful fabric, little lanterns, Moroccan style tea cups from Karama, Dragon Mart and Diera.
I’d suggest Karama for one off pieces of coloured throws and table runners, and also the small tea cup lanterns. For bigger lanterns go to Dragon Mart, I promise you will save a few bucks. (And always remember to haggle the price down.. I promise it will work, even if you save an extra AED10 it’s worth a go.)
Also, lots of the event companies here in Dubai have these items for rent, and hotels such as The Madinat Jumeriah, One & Only Royal Mirage and The Palace Downtown already have an Arabic feel to their decor, which makes it super easy for you, the bride.
