Just like a mirage in the desert, this bride is a refreshing vision. I used as inspiration for the color palette Jasmine’s dad, the Sultan. Warm complimenting metals are incorporated throughout the design to give this wedding an ultra elegant and glamorous look. Modern caftans for the bridesmaids are a different dress alternative for the bridesmaids. One that they are all going to embrace, as caftans flatter every body type, they are flowy, and super comfortable.
Please note that this is a hard design to execute, moderation is key. It can go from classy and elegant to tacky and trashy in a nano second. In my opinion, some people struggle with when to stop adding elements. If you notice, in both the cake and the table designs the most predominant colors are white and Desert Sand. The metallic elements are used only as accents. That is the way you want to keep it.
I always think of ways to surprise the guests. They might forget many things about your wedding but not a “Ha!” moment. Incorporating a belly dancer somewhere in your special day would be magical. Timing is important though, and something that needs to be carefully planned by your event planner. Some ideas are:
- During the wedding ceremony (to dance you down the aisle or when the ceremony is over to dance you both out)
- During cocktail hour
- Towards the end of dinner (as a transition from dinner to dancing)
- At the end of the night (to lead guests towards the departure site)
Dear bride, a whole new world awaits for you! It’s time to create the oasis that you deserve.
