Dhabiya Al Majed: A Passion For Events Planning

Starting an events planning company involves passion. This drove Dhabiya Al-Majed to start the company Events by Dhabiya. These events include weddings, bridal showers, engagements, and corporate events.

“I always had a passion for flowers and events. That gave me an idea – why not turn my passion into a career ”

Some of the discouraging things Dhabiya heard included “There are many event management companies, yours won’t work!”.

“At first, I didn’t think I would receive many requests given the fact that I was new and  worked through an account on Instagram. I met clients at coffee shops and I did my paperworks at home. In Bahrain, many of the event planners complained to me about how hard dealing with clients are and how they like to bargain, I honestly didn’t feel that. Clients like new ideas, I made sure that each and every event had a creative aspect that made it special. None of what I’m doing would have been possible without the support from my family and friends – even florists.”

When asked to provide advice for aspiring event planners, Dhabiya said passion is very important.

“Because passion drives and pushes you to endless possibilities.”
