Confessions of a Real Bride: Faten Haymour

Confessions of a Real Bride: Faten Haymour

Faten Haymour and Ahmad Abu Sier met 7 years ago as they were students at the same school in Amman, Jordan.

They got married at Everest Hotel on the 5th of September 2013 in Amman.

  • Did you hire a wedding planner or planned the wedding yourself?

We hired Everest Hotel’s wedding planners “Fantazia”, and they did a great job.

  • What is the biggest advice you can give any bride-to-be?

Plan your wedding together and cherish every moment, as these moments will never come again.

Remember this is YOUR wedding, enjoy every minute of it.

Take as many pictures as you can during your engagement period and share them with everyone at your wedding, me and Ahmad loved the slideshow we had, thanks to studio Babel.

  • What was the theme or color scheme you picked for your wedding?

We chose ivory and purple as the main color scheme.

  • Do you recommend specific suppliers you worked with?

Once we provided  Fantazia all the details we wanted for the wedding, as well as the color combination, but remember to keep it simple.

  • What was the most difficult and stressful part of wedding planning?

The entrance was the most difficult part, I was trying not show how nervous I was and checking if the wedding planner had done everything I wanted without anyone noticing.

"Arabia Weddings is one the websites I visited the most during the last 8 months before the wedding,

I used to check it out every single day to see what new ideas are on the website,

I was inspired by so many ideas for my wedding"

  • Did you face any surprises?

Our wedding planners added a few details to the wedding as a gift from them to us.

  • Do you consider yourself as a relaxed bride or more of a bridezilla?

I was really nervous because I wanted everything to be perfect, as for Ahmad he was very calm and relaxed.

Describe your wedding day and the planning process.

Our wedding turned out great, we worked on every detail together and I was so happy with the results.
