Shereen Haddad and Alaa Sayej got married on November 16, 2012 at the Catholic ‘Karam Imseeh’ church in Amman, Jordan followed by a reception held at the Orthodox Club in Abdoun, Amman.
We didn’t hire a wedding planner; we planned everything ourselves. We looked for ideas and booked the vendors and the church ourselves.We also decorated my family’s house and made beautiful stands and trays to present the chocolates on with stickers of me and Alaa’s picture on them.
"The most important thing is organization"
The color scheme was mainly silver and white, decorated with pearls. I included pearls in most of the wedding, my flower girls wore pearl and flower bracelets and even Alaa and his groomsmen had pearl pins pinned to their suits.
Our thank you notes were shaped like a suit and a wedding dress decorated with pearls.
The giveaways were big seashells filled with pearls, with a note which had the pearl’s description and their relation to the horoscopes.
We distributed fireworks sticks, matchsticks and flyers with our pictures on them.
The entrance was very nice as well, the groom entered with his friends all wearing hats and carrying canes.
I recommend Imad Jamal from Arcadia Studio, he gave us so many ideas for our pictures.
He also made us a slide show of our childhood along with pictures taken a week before the wedding.
Not having enough time to plan everything, between the engagement, planning the wedding and looking for a house, we felt a bit pressured.
Our wedding car broke down once we were on our way to the church, but thank God it was fixed in no time, other than that it all went smoothly and as planned.

"I loved the planning tools as they helped me plan every detail for a perfect wedding"
I consider myself a bridezilla, because I wanted everything to be perfect, but it also made me more anxious and nervous. The groom was a bit more relaxed which helped me a lot and reassured me.
The planning process was the most beautiful period of our lives.
