It suits any size, budget or venue and it’s effortlessly easy to create.
When it comes to choosing the perfect palette for your wedding celebration, we suggest taking inspiration from the colourful aesthetic of Morocco. Opt for vibrant, jewel tones with dashes of luxurious gold and bronze. Incorporate hints of orange and earthy tones, including lots of terracotta, ornate patterns and statement designs. You’ll find that any colour combination works.
Set the scene with your wedding stationery, including your save the dates and invitations. Opt for invitations that are adorned with gold foiling and geometric detailing for added luxury. Your guests will love receiving the invitations and it will help them to get excited for your celebrations.
The decoration and details are the easiest ways to add a touch of Morocco to your big day, including lots of bohemian touches throughout. We recommend hanging a mixture of colourful and metallic lanterns around your wedding venue – above the tables, as centrepieces or at the entrance. This will instantly set the scene for your special day.
Add luxury to your wedding tables by using gilded cutlery and luxurious gold charger plates for your place settings. Decorate your reception tables with lots of golden candlesticks, vases and tea lights to create low lighting that perfectly sets the ambience.
Make your wedding chairs stand out by using macramé chair covers – they’ll add a boho vibe to your celebrations and they can be a fun DIY job for you and your hubby! Alternatively, macramé looks beautiful as a ceremony backdrop.
Transform even the simplest of wedding venues by draping colourful and bold fabric across the walls. This will create a divine ceremony area where you can really feel like you’re saying ‘I Do’ in Morocco. We also love the idea of lining the aisle with a variety of Moroccan-inspired rugs.
Lounge areas have recently become a hot trend in the world of weddings and they’re the perfect fit for this stylish wedding theme. Create a designated space at your wedding venue using a variety of low sofas scattered with plush cushions, peacock chairs and lots of rugs. You could even serve your guests Moroccan mint tea or create a fun henna station for your guests to enjoy! The options really are endless.
When it comes to your aisle style, opt for a gown that is adorned with statement metallic embellishments and wear lots of bejewelled accessories. You will definitely turn heads as you walk down the aisle…
