Exotic Morocco, a land of magic, history, and romance, has become the primer destination wedding. From two to fifty guests, SaharaTrek has crafted a wedding experience unique, affordable, and memorable. Deep in the cultural soul of Morocco, you and your guests will enjoy a 4 day, 3 night organized wedding experience.
They say that Marrakech is the beating heart of Morocco, always alive and moving, but Fez is the soul of Morocco. Above the valley, looking down into the Medina, this old city of 200,000 looks dead and lifeless, only springing to life when you enter like spirits arizing from the ether. Hundreds of thousands of people pulsing through the narrow streets with not a vehicle in sight.
When you arrive at the Fez airport, you’ll be picked up and transferred to the luxurious Riad El Yacout where you’ll say for the next three nights.
You’ll be greeted with a welcome cocktail before dinner. After a three-course dinner at the riad, a van and driver will take the gentleman of the party out for an evening bar hopping. The ladies will enjoy an optional open bar at the Raid’s rooftop bar or poolside.
Before sunrise, the call of over a hundred muezzin in Fez fills the morning stillness as your day starts with breakfast in the courtyard of the Riad El Yacout before being met by your guide. For the next 5 hours, you’ll be taken on a walking tour of the Fez Medina.
One of the largest labyrinth cities in the world, the Fez Medina is a riddle waiting to be solved. Its narrow streets and alleys twisting and turning through thousands of years of history.
Fez is THE place for shopping for traditional crafts. Around every corner, another market appears. The cacophony of the metalworkers as they hand hammer and carve brass and bronze—the rhythmic ticking of the weavers, the sweet smell of cedar from the woodworkers. And, of course, the overpowering aroma of the tannery as they produce the finest Moroccan leather.
Almost as a respite from the overload on the senses, your guide will take you to the historical and cultural sites of Fez. Sites of history, culture, and faith lay waiting for your visit. As part of your tour, you’ll be treated to our Taste of Fez and sample the delicacies of Fez from the countless vendors as you tour, a roving feast for the senses and as filling as lunch.
After the tour, you’ll return to the Raid for a four-course rehearsal dinner, and the evening is yours to rest and prepare for the big day.
Today is the day! After breakfast, the ladies can enjoy an optional hammam (spa) morning and a beautician to help the bride to be with hair and makeup. After a light lunch, everyone can get ready for an early afternoon wedding. After the ceremony, everyone in your party will enjoy a luxurious two appetizers, two main courses, and two dessert dinner with an optional open bar, with either traditional Moroccan music or a DJ providing the music. The rest of the evening is yours to celebrate.
After breakfast at the Riad (time allowing), you’ll be transferred to the Fez airport for your flight home, or let us create a custom tour of Morocco and see the country while you’re there.
