Our mission is to alleviate the stress so that you can enjoy your memorable day in style, as it should be. Regardless of age or personality, you can count on us to facilitate a customized event that has a “WOW” factor sure to awe all of those in attendance.
How about a snake charmer, a monkey trainer, a white camel, a ice cream cone man, a henna lady, belly and candelabra dancers, stiltwalkers, green-robed women singers and white-robed musicians in yellow, pointed slippers, welcoming guests into the night’s backdrop for weddings and celebrations.
Under torchlight, white robed male musicians with trumpets and drums, sing low-toned rhythmic melodies, call and respond, and clap with hands and finger-cymbals welcome the guests to the long red carpet on the narrow alley, gawked at by residents peeping from doorways. Perfumed water bless the guests as they enter the courtyard to dine under the moon and stars.
Royalty and movie stars hang out in Dar Yacout’s 30-year-old private salons with fireplaces and hidden corners with carved cedar ceiling. From the rooftop can be seen the medina and the towering Koutoubia Mosque.
Two candelabra dancers with lighted candles on their head, and two belly dancers glide around the guests dining around the red petals-covered tables topped with crystal globlets. Moroccan gastronomic cuisine - bread, salad, tangine lamb, is individually served.
An hour’s drive and 30 kilometres south of Marrakesh is the Agafay luxury camp in a stony desert, with white sand dunes, a train of camels, and unattended all-terrain vehi-cles. Guests enjoy the bumpy US$35 an hour camel ride for free until it was too dark for others to follow.
Candles brighten up the open tent scattered with giant throw pillows around low tables on white carpets as the sun sets. Red-fez wearing waiters in white long sleeves shirts and black trousers from White Camel Lodge caterers individually serve the cross-leg-seated guests.
A basket of Moroccan bread, a round flattish loaf, dense and hard, goes with the tastiest lamb tangine, a stew with apricots, raisins, flaked almonds and saffron cooked slowly in a shallow earthen pot with a cone-shaped lid called the tangine.
Belly dancers and a fire dancer light up the night. Musicians beat the drums, tambou-rines and finger cymbals, and lend their headgears to dancing guests.
This incredible journey and charming and luxurious hospitality, steps away from the best of Marrakesh’s historic wonders, is worth retelling as a modern Scheherazade tale.
First of a big thank you again to Maria and her Team! Our company event was a great success through their meticulous preparations, great choice of restaurants, hotels, event spots, transfers, travel guides surprises and more. Everything from start to finish was professionally executed and resulted to fantastic experience. So if in Morocco and looking for a great experience to plan and carry out an event, Party Maroc is your perfect partner! All the best to Maria and her team from Zürich!
As background, we are based in Los Angeles and had a four-day, multi-event wedding with 90 guests traveling in from the U.S., Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. We found Maria and Siham over Instagram, and - after considering several other planners - worked with them from start to finish…without ever visiting Marrakech until two days before the first event.
If you are thinking about working with Maria and Siham, you should hire them before they book another client - period. They are, in a word, exceptional. They are totally trustworthy, extremely well connected, communicate well and often, have great taste and instincts, balance providing advice rooted in experience with being responsive to the quirkiest of ideas, and will produce a truly memorable event - no matter how complicated or what challenges come up (like a sudden forecast of rain in late May).
Key things about working with Maria and Siham:
They really know Marrakech: We had never been, did not visit during the planning process, and relied on them for suggestions about riads, venues, caterers, entertainment ideas, vendors…literally everything. Everything they suggested was spot on and they were even able to find someone to tent a lawn two days before the event due to potential rain. And they are great at adapting suggestions to your guidance e.g. we ended up with six riads tailored to the different preferences and price points of our diverse group of friends.
Focused on providing options, sharing advice when asked, and will always defer to you: Some planners are too directive while others don’t help you decide anything. Maria and Siham are exceptional at laying out options based on your guidance, offering their views when asked, and then deferring to your decision. They have executed a lot of events so their advice is rooted in experience and you should probably take it but, whatever you decide, they will support you totally.
Great communication and end-to-end project management: Nobody really understands everything that goes into an event especially a wedding before they start planning one. Maria and Siham are terrific at explaining the process, and walking you through the various decisions that have to be made and when. One of us is a project manager for a living, and Maria and Siham are on another level. Behind everything you see, they are tracking a ton of other details and execution is seamless (see below). You always feel like you’re their only client and left wondering how they manage to deliver this level of service simultaneously to multiple clients.
Execution is seamless; they add capacity and relieve stress: A lot of people kept asking us how stressful the wedding planning was, especially the closer we got to the event. And then during/after the event, people asked us how difficult it must have been to pull off. Honestly, Maria and Siham’s execution let us enjoy the event versus worrying about it. That alone was worth their fee.
We are happy to talk with anyone who would like to learn more about working with Maria and Siham. They know how to reach us and can put you in touch. Good luck!
Best wedding planning team ever!!! Highly highly recommend!!
Very friendly and helpful company to work with in Marrakech. Quick responses as well. Thank you!!
My husband and I are both based on the USA but we wanted to have our wedding in Marrakech. We just had our wedding last month and we enlisted the help of La Perle Events who worked closely with Party Maroc. When I say it was the best decision we’ve made, I really mean it. We planned for a wedding weekend with activities including a Moroccan and Henna night on the first day, the ceremony and reception on the second, and a casual farewell brunch on the third. Every event went by so smoothly without any problems, and it’s all thanks to Siham, Maria, and their team. It was such a pleasure working with them during the year building up the our wedding weekend. They are the most thoughtful, meticulous, organized, kind, and knowledgeable planners. They are so easy to talk to, which is so helpful when stressing out about a wedding! They always were willing to listen and were very cognizant of all of our wants and needs for our wedding. They are also so skilled with their planning and we’re always willing to share their knowledge. They thought about things that I didn’t even know were things to think about. They got to know us pretty well through the planning process and were able to help us find the perfect vendors for us. They do a great job communicating with all the vendors and always sent us photos during all the updates. Although we did not get a chance to see our wedding venue when we signed for it, they went to see the venue for us and I trusted their opinion completely. They have amazing vision and a great eye for decor. During the days of our wedding, I did not have to worry about anything, which was such a relief. Our wedding weekend was so spectacular and magical, and all our expectations were blown out of the water! All of our friends and family, some of whom have been to plenty Moroccan weddings, said our wedding was one-of-a-kind and the most amazing they’ve seen, and it’s all thanks to Siham and Maria. I’m so glad we met them, and they are our dear friends for life.
Maria and her team went above and beyond - we had the best wedding we couldn’t have done it without Party Maroc. Thank you again Maria, you’re the best!
I wasn’t sure how planning a wedding all the way from London will go but once we started working with Maria, we knew we were in safe hands. We had the wedding of our dreams in Marrakesh, many thanks to Maria. Everything went smoothly from the day our guest arrived to the day they departed. I am happy to have stumbled upon Party Maroc on Instagram and will recommend them over and over again! Thank you so much Maria and the party Maroc team!
Maria is the perfect wedding planner. If you're reading this review trying to decide whether to select her and Party Maroc for your next event, it's an absolute no-brainer -- pick Maria. My husband and I hosted a 3-day, 60-person wedding in Marrakech. We received endless compliments from our guests, stayed within budget, had the most stress-free experience -- and most importantly had an absolute blast. When we were first searching for a planner, Maria stuck out immediately as knowledgeable, friendly, and down-to-earth. While others tried to push us into one direction or the other (or spent the entire first call bragging about their reputation), Maria took the time to get to know us and build a deliberate plan of action. Maria enabled all of this by working tirelessly throughout. She always anticipated our needs, planned for every eventuality, and pivoted quickly when things didn't go according to plan (thank you, COVID!). Quite frankly, it was hard to believe she had other clients she was working with at the same time, because of the attention she made sure we received at all times. Maria also has impeccable taste and somehow managed to make our events over-the-top glamorous, without being cheesy or kitsch. On our first trip to Marrakech, Maria ensured that everything went perfectly and we not only got our pre-wedding work done, but had so much fun doing it. Maria has excellent contacts in various vendor circles, and gave us tons of good options for décor, DJ, desert camps, flowers, food, photographers, and more. And she never forced us into any decisions with vendors, staying perfectly neutral throughout. My favorite part was how little guidance we had to offer her, aside from explaining our tastes and preferences. She took that and ran with it, and even we were surprised by how perfect each night turned out and we got to focus on having fun and taking care of our guests. And pretend to be modest while being showered with compliments about the event. We count Maria as a friend and are just sliiightly jealous of any other couple that gets to work with her.
How lucky we are to have found Maria and Party Maroc and organize together an unforgettable birthday event. Maria's level of service, attention to detail, response time, product knowledge and organization skills are second to none. If you are planning on organizing any event in Morocco and are searching for a devoted, personalized service, look no further!
Maria is an outstanding resource. Reliable, kind and with a great network of local connections. Highly suggested for anyone who is interested in organising some events in Morocco
Maria went above and beyond to create just the most amazing day for us. From the first zoom meeting to instant communication over WhatsApp and of course, the day itself, Maria made sure that we got exactly the wedding of our dreams. She added extra detail that we didn’t know we would love, fought to get us great deals and even went out of her way to help us with our pre event, despite this not being her job. She was relaxed, friendly and professional. Many of the vendors she worked with were so at ease with her that there was little instruction needed as they all knew the best places and ways to get things done. I honestly couldn’t recommend Party Maroc enough. Thank you Maria, it has honestly been a dream come true.
Maria is the most amazing event planner I’ve ever met in my life! We did an event coming in from abroad and she made us feel very comfortable and always in touch with updates on our events. All the locations she chose for our events were A+ quality with the best service and all of the best entertainment. Her team was also amazing they were always with us taking care of all of the background work to make sure the events were going smoothly. I can’t wait to have another event in Morocco and work with Maria, she has become a part of our family and helped something we only as a vision come to life! ❤️
As an hotelier, an event planner and a graduate from Hotel School of Lausanne I have to tell Maria and your team, you are the best event planner team I have ever worked and even if we were so far away and during the pandemic crisis. Bravo and a Big THANK YOU for your very hard work !!!
Maria is a phenomenal wedding planner and human being. Maria single handedly made our 3-day wedding extravaganza in Marrakesh in May 2022 an immense success. We are based in the US and Maria made planning a destination wedding so easy. Maria is an excellent communicator, staying in constant communication with us by text and phone. She is very responsive and attentive to your needs. Maria is very organized and able to keep you on track and within your goals. Maria is honest and trustworthy and serves as your advocate in selecting and negotiating with third parties. Maria also has great decor style, taste and instincts. We were so lucky to have Maria as our trusted friend in our wedding planning journey. Maria, thank you so much for making our wedding day so special! We wholeheartedly recommend using Maria as your wedding planner if you are doing a wedding in Marrakesh! Love, Nealofar & Michael
Maria at Party Maroc recently organized a spectacular birthday party for me in the desert at Roches Noires. The planning process was expertly conducted and every detail was perfect on the day. My guests from the UK, France, Belgium and the USA were blown away. Very highly recommended.
Amazing customer service. Flying out to Marrakech for my birthday with a group of girls and wanted a party planner. I had sent numerous emails n none has replied except Party Maroc. They immediately came up with ideas for my party...ie... venue, food..entertainment and got the ball rolling. I am super excited to use their services and will post another review with photos after my event.
We worked together with Maria and her team on a corporate event, which had to be planned last minute within less than two month for almost 100 people. She did an amazing job and organised the most extraordinary event we have ever experienced as a company. Four days of high-class accommodation and events with stunning decorations and entertainment. We couldn’t be more grateful for this amazing experience, which we will definitely never forget. THANK YOU FOR YOUR OUTSTANDING WORK!
It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had . Maria was helpful calm and quite brilliant .
I have been in touch with Party Maroc ( Maria ) from the beginning of our Wedding planning in Marrakech.(2017). I don’t have even words to describe how professional and helpful Maria was . I can’t believe, it's already over, after a hundreds of e-mails exchanged and WhatsApp chatting . From the beginning and from the first brief about our wedding, Party Maroc knew what kind of wedding we have in mind and what we are dreaming of. From choosing wedding venues , decoration , to different suppliers, Maria knew exactly what we are searching for and was all the time in our side and giving as advices. Marrakech is full of beautiful wedding venues , but Party Maroc knows the best and hidden gems 😉. Planning a wedding in Morocco , it s not easy and you definitely need a professional in town, who to rely and trust on.... I would like to describe partyMaroc in 3 words : - Trustful - Professional - Available On behalf of our parents and all our guests that came from all over the world : France , Finland , Canada , UK, Cameroun , Casablanca , Germany... We thank you so much for all what you have done to make our wedding day so special and unique . 🤩🤩. It was a long journey , but all worth it 😍🙏🏽🙌🏽 With love , Siham & Kevin #s💙k2019
Professional and serious team, special thanks to super Lady Maria how is very kind and helpful 👏😘
Went to a 3 day wedding organised by these people last month.... it was so well done... fire eaters, Berber dancers, wonderful staff. I'm tempted to take off a star as it took me a week to come to terms with being back in England after the buzz and friendship out there. Maria pointed out a fantastic salon where I had a great hair cut as well!!
Went to a friend's wedding and it was a beautifully arranged event, it looked incredible, the food was amazing, the entertainment was extremely good and authentic. They are a company that definitely know what they are doing. Based in Marrakech so have the inside scoop on all the best venues and providers. Amazing event!
We have just returned from the most amazing 2 day event organised by Maria and her team. Everything was faultless, accommodation, entertainment, transportation. A truly wonderful time and highly recommended.
I attended a wedding organised by Party Maroc this summer. It was absolutely incredible from start to finish - beautifully organised & we were entertained & looked after to another level. Camels, belly dancing, Moroccan bands, authentic feasts, luxurious accommodation, seamless transportation- we all had the best time.
Party Maroc did a faultless job. A 3 day party of great complexity went without a hitch. Travel, food, dancing, wedding - everything was 10/10. Nick peto.
I attended a 3 day wedding party event organised by Maria of Party Maroc last June and was totally amazed by the organisation of all the party planning, accommodations, transportation for 60 plus guests - all with a big smile which made us enjoy ourselves even more!
Party Maroc provide everything you could dream of for your special event. Fantastic team. Professional planning, variety of creative options to keep you entertained. I absolutely recommend them!
My overall experience with Party Maroc was excellent. Maria helped with great ideas as she knows Marrakech quite well, but also provided the best service in helping me book the best places in Marrakech. We had an amazing trip to Morocco and a major thank you goes to Party Maroc. Definitely recommending their services.
Party Maroc knows everything for the perfect event. I strongly recommend them.
I work very often with Party Maroc on events and parties such a good fun and professional team.
The Best (y)
