American Wedding in Morocco: Tips from Award-Winning Event Agency

2 August 2021

Morocco is a place with rich cultural heritage and beautiful traditions, many of which can be seen at Moroccan wedding ceremonies.  Today, destination wedding planner Cocoon Events will share their inside advice on planning the perfect American wedding in Morocco.

Words of wisdom for your wedding abroad in Morocco

Our first tip is to carefully choose the location for your destination wedding in Morocco. Morocco has a myriad of incredible venues, from authentic palaces to incredible private villas and traditional riads secreted away. Start planning your wedding in advance: start by selecting 4-5 venues and look at each of them to make the right choice for you. If you can’t make your own pre-wedding trip to Morocco, hire a trusted local wedding planner who can tell you about all the venues in detail, show you videos, and help you see the space through their eyes.

The most enchanting American weddings in Morroco show a flair for local culture. After all, this is what makes Morocco so vibrant, colorful and distinctive. To add a touch of sophistication to your Moroccan wedding, we paint the celebrations in gold, bring in traditional carved lamps and antique art to decorate. For inspiration, fall head over heels for the weddings in Morocco we’ve designed at Cocoon Events in our portfolio.

Moroccan cuisine offers an excellent talking point and a delicious treat for your guests. A fusion menu that mixes your favorite flavors with traditional Moroccan dishes will be a real highlight of the evening. Popular dishes include Moroccan Chicken Bastilla, which the chefs prepare with ginger, saffron, cinnamon and pepper. Another great option is tagine, a Moroccan stew made with meat, vegetables, sauce, and bread – ideal for a more bohemian theme.

Arabian Night themed wedding

If you want to surprise and delight your wedding guests, show them a real Arabian fairy tale! Especially for you and your wedding, a magical tent will grow in the middle of the Moroccan desert. It will become a great location for a traditional pre-wedding dinner or a wedding party with guests all night long. What could be more romantic than making your vows in the middle of the desert with your partner and closest, dearest loved ones?

A themed celebration is a great choice for those who dream of a unique, extraordinary wedding. What should you remember when creating an Arabian night wedding?

1. Weather drops. Even if the sun is scorching during the day, the nights in the desert can be quite chilly. Take care of the comfort of your guests and prepare warm blankets or cashmere shawls for them in advance.

2. Find a professional entertainment team. Traditional Moroccan entertainment at weddings can be quite dangerous – especially when dancing with fire! Collaborate with a team of professionals who are masters of their craft.

3. Think over all the stages of the holiday in advance. Walk through the script several times and think about what you might need during the holiday? You will be in the middle of the desert, and there is no fast delivery – it is better to take care of everything, and a local planner will help you do exactly that.
