A Chit Chat with Arabia Weddings: Wedding Planner Alissar

A Chit Chat with Arabia Weddings: Wedding Planner Alissar

The Mzayek family opened their first flower shop "Alissar"  in Amman in 1979. Today, Alissar is the Middle East's leading speacialists in cut flowers, a trendsetter and innovator in floral designs and decorations.

Alissar also offers services to weddings, hotels, retail, events, and flower production facilities.

Arabia Weddings asked Alissar a few questions to help each bride-to-be plan the day of her dreams. Here are the questions and answers:
 
  • Can a bride have her dream wedding on a budget?

Well, the bigger budget, the more space for implementations; however, there are many ways to create a ‘wow’ effect. It is very important to set the key elements of the wedding, where to invest more and the rest of the things will fall into place. A good wedding planner can help a lot in optimizing wedding expenses, yet making the day memorable.

  • What are the hottest trends in weddings this season?

Modern designs with lots of colors.

  • How does the wedding process start and what are the main elements of a successful relationship with the bride and groom-to-be?

The bride & groom have to have an idea on the theme they want for their wedding, being a color theme (white, pink, purple, etc.) or a themed wedding in terms of the idea (modern, classical, baroque, etc.), set a budget, and take it from there.

A successful relationship has to be built on trust, and understanding what the vision of the bride & groom is and make it happen. Couples getting married are usually nervous. They have to be given the time to explain all the details of their wedding. For a wedding planner, he/she has done many times, but for the bride & groom it is their first and only time going through the process.

 

  • How can a wedding planner help the bride and groom in planning their wedding on a budget?

A good wedding planner has an extensive experience and a wide variety in his supply chain. Knowing the vision and requirements of a couple, the wedding planner can make the right selection out of its partners and their products (starting from venue, floral décor, entertainment, etc.) to matching the couple’s budget.

  • What is the most outrageous thing a couple has asked to have at their wedding?

A couple wanted a Cinderella theme for their wedding; everything was fine until they asked us to have real cats, birds, and mice as a part of the theme! The bride ended up holding a kitten for her bridal bouquet!
