Having the ideal Moroccan themed wedding can be simple and astonishing, if you know a few key ways to really showcase the Moroccan culture.
First, choose two to three colors that would emphasis the theme of your wedding. When going with a Moroccan theme, think of deep, rich, and bold colors. Colors such as burgundy, purple, gold, teal, blue, tan, and a shade of deep orange will be just the thing. A great way to think about the colors is choose colors that are in your spice cabinet. For example, when you think of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg you think of deep shapes of gold. When you think of the spice paprika, you think of a deep shade of red. These spices and colors are what will set your wedding up for the flawless Moroccan wedding.
Second, invitations can introduce the theme and tone of your wedding. You can tie in the Moroccan appeal by adding an intricate design to your invite with deep shapes used for the writing. This is a great way to add that ideal Moroccan look. Another consideration is to throw in a deep gold design cascading through the background of your invite. In addition use a deep shade of purple for the writing. A supplementary idea is to find some amazing Moroccan pictures and designs and use those as a background picture in your invitations.
Third, the decor of your wedding is where you can bring this extraordinary theme to life. Having pictures of Morocco hanging on the walls can be an amazing way to set the atmosphere at your reception. Using deep shapes of purple and gold as table linens would make your theme pop. Bold silver plates can also be a fantastic way to pull the Moroccan theme together. Also, a fun idea is to have sections in your wedding where there are floor pillows used instead of chairs. In Morocco this is very popular. Their restaurants use these areas with pillows instead of chairs to give it a more family atmosphere. This is where guests could sit, drink and relax and feel like they’re in the mist of the Moroccan dessert. A wonderful plan for the centerpieces is to use antique lanterns with many designs drawn on them. In addition to using beads on the table can also be a fun way to give your wedding a Moroccan appeal. Another colorful set up is to have different shades of deep Moroccan colors as chair covers.
Fourth, is to choose the menu. For appetizers, a superb choice is to serve a chickpea and lentil soup. This is a staple item in Morocco. It is light and fresh and Morocco is all about that. For dinner, consider having a different variety of meats. A flavorful fish entree and a succulent chicken entree will pull your menu together great. In Morocco they are all about their meat dishes; they have an extreme variety to choose from at most meals. Also serving mint tea and Arabic coffee with dessert will express the Moroccan vibe quite well.
