Have An Arabian Night With A Moroccan Medley ~ Theme Thursday

The Moroccan style and culture has recently become very popular with Westerners. Morocco’s architecture has provided much inspiration for home décor over in the UK and the USA. The Moroccan architecture style has it’s roots in the western parts of North-Africa and the Iberian peninsula.

This theme has lots of detailing with daring, bold colour combinations such as pink and orange or blue and yellow. This theme works well in neutral colours such as creams and whites as well as bright colours. The metal patterned plates and cups look great against a neutral table cloth and runner.

A very popular decoration in this theme is the beautiful lanterns. These lanterns are very geometric in shape, with delicate details on the metal frame and glass sides. You can purchase such lanterns in most home-ware stores like Ikea, The Range and Dunelm. Cox and Cox also has a great range. These lanterns would make great centrepieces, with a candle burning inside, giving off a soft glow through the coloured glass. Adding flowers around the lanterns that compliment the colours will make it look stunning.

With this theme you can opt to have your reception where ever you like, either in doors or outside. Have patterned rugs (Aladdin style) and blankets scattered on the floor with bean bags, cushions and puff seats around low tables. This theme is very laid back and relaxed, your guests will be right at home, kicking off their shoes and getting very comfortable! If you decide to have an indoor reception fabric drapes are perfect when aiming for a Morocan/Arab vibe. Our lovely supplier Fabric Theatre supply beautiful draping. They can dress up any kind of space and have many different styles and colours to choose from.

You could even try out some alternative wedding dresses. Instead of a structured plain white dress, an off white dress with detailing made out of lace or beads would tie in nicely with this theme. The deep brown of henna patterns on your hands and feet would look great against a white dress.

The Moroccan theme is definitely all about the layering of patterns, details and colours to create a miss match care-free style. It’s up to you how much of this theme you add to your wedding. Accents of the Moroccan style look great against more conservative decorations, such as patterned candle holders, cutlery or even vases – they add that little something extra to your big day. This theme is one you can have lots of fun with, there are no rules!

Here are some images demonstrating how you can create a lovely Moroccan wedding. We hope this blog gives you some great ideas!
