Moroccan-themed Wedding

I've never thought of Moroccan-themed wedding before. But the idea struck on me when I attended my cousin's solemnization ceremony. She set up her own mini dais ala tent with colourful shades of kain. When I came home, I went googling the ideas and pictures from Google Images. I was so in awe I know I need to have this theme for my akad nikah as well. It'll make good pictures for the album because of the colors, decors and whatnots. The guests must be decked in colorful attires. That's compulsory. The more colors, the merrier!

Need examples? Here's my inspiration:



I absolutely heart this one. Pretty shades of pink, deep purple and lilac. It's girly but who cares...



I observed, apart from colorful paper lanterns (source: IKEA or Shaja), the antique brass lantern too plays an important part in the Moroccan-themed wedding. I know Romantika in Plaza Alam Sentral sells these lanterns in various sizes at reasonable prices. Might go and have a look whenever I'm on my lunch break.



These are few pictures during my cousin's solemnization ceremony. The nikah tent was in purple. I love the combination. Pretty!
