Since then, she has never looked back. In 2008, MY Event Design, a full-fledged event design, planning, and management company based in Amman, Jordan, was established. Majeda began her love affair with style and design early in life. After graduating from college in Jordan, Majeda continued her undergraduate studies in fashion design at Istituto Callegari in Treviso, Italy. Her undergraduate background has been a great source of inspiration throughout her event design journey—from designs and trends to runways and fashion weeks, everything about this industry creatively motivates her.

Signature Wedding Style- People always say that my signature style is in the tunnels that I create or construct from scratch. I always want to capture guests as soon as they walk in; first impressions are very important to me, so to me, the long tunnel that leads to the dinner party is always something I like to design and add. Another signature style for me is making sure that the event design is chic and trendy. The colors and textures of the season always find their way into the event in one way or another. Attention to detail is very important to me, especially when it comes to tablescapes and flowers. I have always had a passion for flowers, and I think it is genetic.
