I’m starting the week off with some style inspiration. I’ve put together a few of my favorite weddings themes, and included a style tip too! Here are a few of my favourite wedding themes…
1. Vintage Lace
Lace is timeless and elegant, and can be introduced in various ways throughout your wedding theme. A lace overlay or napkin tie can be look really pretty, and be used again after your wedding if you’re investing in lace. (or you can hire them from me :))
Where to find lace…
You’ll find lace in most of the fabric shops on Nife Road in Diera, or around Satwa. Don’t forget to haggle the price, even if it’s just a little bit. Prices can start from AED 20 per yard to AED 500 depending on the quality.

2. Boho Chic
This wedding theme doesn’t come as naturally to Dubai wedding venues as it would in the UK, but I can assure you there are some venues that would work rock this theme!
Greener looking venues include…
*The Address Montgomerie
*Arabian Ranches Polo Club
*Al Badia Golf Club @ Festival City
*The oval lawn at The One and Only Royal Mirage
*The Farm – perfect for a smaller and alcohol free wedding.

3. Glamorous Gold
Think gold, glitter and candelabras.. this is one theme that works perfectly with Dubai’s glitzy ballrooms.
Things you need to set this theme alive…
Gold rimmed charger plates – you can hire these for only AED 10 each from Contempo. Also add glitter in table numbers and stationery items. Sequins and glitter will make your wedding shimmer!

4. The DIY wedding.
There is nothing more satisfying than creating something for your wedding, and seeing it there on the day. I can almost guarantee that your wedding guests will comment on your personal touches.
For all your crafty needs check out craft land on the Umm Suqeim road. You’ll need about an hour to browse around the aisles… because it’s so big!

5. Prints & patterns
I know, I know… I’m a little bit in love with Chevron. Prints are on trend right now, and I love it. Creating your own monogram of the bride and groom initials is also becoming very popular, and you can add this to your stationery or wedding cake.
For personal branding check out Mustard Seed Creative. Natalie, who recently closed down Elizabeth Andres to start this new venture will be more than happy to help personalise your big day with her graphic design skills.
