This weeks wedding inspiration comes to you from Fusion Events very own Certified Wedding Consultant, Dana Mattar, WPICC.
My inspiration for the “Golden Petals” theme was “East meets West”. As a wedding planner I enjoy fusing cultural themes together, and in this case I added some Middle Eastern flavor with some of the Western culture. I incorporated the Middle East through the colors and the grandness of the venue and the decor, yet kept it very Western and modern by using contemporary furniture. I used two bold colors, orange and purple, to create a grand and rich feel.
The Ceremony would be held outdoors under a tent with orange flowers hanging from the ceiling, and purple petals along the aisle. After the ceremony, guests will then go to the terrace right outside the reception space for cocktails and Middle Eastern finger foods, where they will listen to the sounds of the Middle Eastern Sitar and Tabla. The cocktail space is adorned with lots of purple and gold candles.
The guests make their way into the reception space, as they wait for the Bride and Groom to make their grand entrance. The reception space is bold and filled with bright colours such as purple, orange, and gold. For dinner, there are different food stations such as the salad station, Middle Eastern station, the fish and sea food bar, children’s station, the carving station, the dessert station, and the espresso bar.
This theme is definitely for the couple who is willing to be bold and take a risk with this dramatic color combination and setting, yet still likes to keep it classy and sophisticated.
