Confessions of a Real Bride: Rawan Jeres

Rawan Jeres and Saleh Abbasi met at work in 2011. They never thought they would ever end up together, but surely, soon after they fell in love and got married in 2012.

  • When was the wedding held and where?

At the garden of our house on 16 July 2012 in Amman.

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

The wedding planner was in charge of the flowers, decorations and lighting. We took care of the rest of the details on our own.

  • Did you face any surprises?

There was a lot of pressure on the electricity, so we faced a few issues with the lighting.

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

I was relaxed, and we enjoyed every minute of our wedding!

  • Describe your wedding day and the planning process.

It was beautiful, but the space was a little small as we had it in our garden at home.

  • Did Arabia Weddings help you in your wedding planning?

Yes, it helped me get inspired with so many great ideas for the wedding.
