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:
- Lounge style seating with rugs, pillows and cushions in shades of reds, oranges and purples.

- Mix and match colors and textures for a "thrown together" look on tables and centerpieces. Try flowers, branches, mismatched votives and vases, and thick, layered table cloths. Remember, each table does not need to look alike!

- 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.

Lanterns available for purchase here
- 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.
