Hey everyone, I am having a morroccan/arabian themed wedding. I am having truouble choosing colors! I want bold darcolors but I dont want my reception to look all over the place. I want RED, GOLD, DEEP PURPLE, SAPHIRE BLU AND MAYBE FUSCHIA. I would love to incorporate these colors but I am having a very hard time figuring out how. I was thinking maybe Red an gold as the main colors and incorporating the other colors as accents but i’m not sure where. I would like the deep purple to be the bridesmaids dresses. Would this lok good? Please help.

Have you tried searching Google Images for moroccan themed weddings? I had a hard time picturing it but the images all seem to have multiple colors and look really pretty. But I think if red is your main color, the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses shouldn’t be purple – might be a little clashing. Purple would be nice as the main color.

saffron, purple, fuschia or red, and a royal blue would look lovely

Hi! I am doing a very similar Indian Theme. I am using Gold Table cloths, with different colored chair covers, and putting different colored morrocan lanterns in the middle with candles all over! You should even do lots of different colors (jewel tone- best) red, green, orange, yellow, gold as table coveres, and beaded pillows of different colors all over! This is one theme there are no lines you cross, you can use all colors and it would look AMAZING!! Have lots and lots of candles so those colors shine even more!

I’m doing a Moroccan / Casablanca Vintage theme! My venue is an old Art Deco theatre and it actually has a lot of color subtly incorporated into their standard decor. All of the interior photos in the pic are of the venue — the colors on the top are what I hope to use!
My major colors are going to be a deep red, amber (light candlelight amber), deep purple/plum — there will be accents of orange and dark green.
I just decided to go with a darker, more dramatic color pallette. I don’t think you need to stick with just 2 or 3 colors, but you need to make sure you have colors that are meant to steal the show (like the theatre red for me!).
To make sure guests aren’t confused by the colors (some people just have a hard time understanding things that aren’t simple…) we’re doing lighting in a moroccan theme and we’re using moroccan lanterns on the tables.
If you want a darker more mysterious feel, go with the deep jewel tones – otherwise, you could choose a really playful Moroccan color palette with aqua, royal blue, fuschia, orange, yellow etc. I really think color is just a part of the theme. You have to have the right accents for it to really work! I’m really excited about the theme though!!! It’s definitely different and I LOVE different!
