Mais and Haitham met by coincidence at Amideast when Haitham came in for an exam, they then got married on 14 July at the King Hussein Club in Amman – Jordan.
- How did you and Haitham meet?
My Husband and I met through work. He was going to AMIDEAST for an exam, where I used to work at the time.
We talked for a bit and asked for my number in order for us to talk more and get to know each other.
We went out a couple of times, and he introduced me to his family and friends before moving to Dubai.
When he came back to Amman for a visit, he proposed! We got engaged 7 months after, and then got married a year after that.
- When was the wedding held and where?
Our wedding was on Saturday, July 14 at the King Hussein Club in Amman.
- Did you hire a wedding planner or planned your wedding yourself? How was your experience?
We planned everything ourselves. Haitham and I both have a background in events planning, and we have quite a few contacts in the industry.
We managed to coordinate directly with them without having a wedding planner in the middle. We love to do our own thing. It was our wedding after all and we wanted to be involved in every single detail. Whether it was flowers, decorations, the venue set up, table set up, everything, we wanted to be in the know.
We enjoyed our experience and we advise every couple to plan their own wedding as they will truly enjoy the experience.
