Other Moroccan wedding ideas:

  • Hire a belly dancer as entertainment for your reception party.
  • Hire a henna artist and set up a special henna area so that your guests can get some Hehndi designs for their hands.
  • Set up a hookahs “lounge”. Many big rental companies rent out hookahs for parties so check with your local rental companies if you are into this idea.
  • Use floor pillows instead of chairs. This idea might not be very practical in reality but if you have a small wedding and the guests seem to be open minded, you could try out this fun idea. At least you can use this idea for the children’s area as children would find the idea of sitting on the floor much more fun and enjoyable than adults generally.
  • To complete a Moroccan themed wedding, include mint tea and couscous in your wedding menu.
  • Hang pictures of Morocco on the wall. This might sound like a simple idea but it will instantly set the Morocco mood for your wedding.
