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.

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!

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

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!!

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!
