Travelling the world instead of throwing a big expensive wedding seemed more attractive and also more feasible.
I have never been a girl that fantasized on having her own wedding. In fact, the idea of throwing yet one more Moroccan wedding with all the stress and hoopla it entails freaked me out. But, I guess I didn’t hold a strong stance on this either. Arab families see traditional weddings as an ingrained part of the culture and I never would thought that I would escape having one.
I met Alladin by end of 2014 (I was between Dubai & Vienna, but he was settled in Dubai), we got married a year after in Dubai courts (not a romantic memory at all, but yet unique and endearing) and thought that we will throw a party sometime in 2016 to gather all our loved ones. This turned out to be unrealistic. Our families are spread across many countries, and we just didn’t know what would be the right way to celebrate. Even a destination wedding, started to look less & less likely.
Then one day, Alladin mentioned something about how he wants to show me the world but he feels bad that I didn’t get to wear a wedding gown. One thing lead to the the other, and we ended agreeing that the most authentic way to celebrate is to pack a tux & gown and take pictures around the world. Although, from time to time I still feel bad that our families were not part of this.
We took pictures in 5 continents, but Alladin wants to do this for life, in every country we visit. This makes him happy and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
