For the haldi ceremony, the couple can choose for a late breakfast or a high tea at Firefly at Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City or V Deck at V Hotel Dubai – both of which are urban poolside venues. On the other hand, the mehndi ceremony can take a more traditional route at the Habtoor Palace Dubai Garden, where Versailles-inspired lawns will double as an unrivalled backdrop. Next, turn the traditional ceremonies on its head and bring on the party vibes for the sangeet ceremony at the Amazing Room. Picture an eye-catching ballroom with a dome-shaped ceiling, LED light patterns dancing along with you on the sprawling spaces, colour-changing walls, and brilliant audio-visual facilities to set the stage for a wild night.

With events leading up to the D-day well behind you, it’s only fair to bring a similar tone of panache into the main ceremonies as well. At the Al Habtoor City Hotel Collection, you and your partner can arrive in style by landing on a helipad or gently swaying your way in via Dubai’s water canals. At the same time, the baraat can taste this opulence by dancing their way through the palatial Al Habtoor Palace Dubai driveway. The culmination of the ceremonies, the mandap, can be set up either at their ballrooms, whereas the after-party or reception can be customised as per your heart’s desire. Whether you want an intimate ceremony with only a 100 guests or an extravagant one with up to 600 guests, you can be assured of a memorable time. For those few moments without any wedding events planned, guests can indulge in exclusive entertainment options such as the 23 restaurants, lounges, nightclub, two spas, six pools, kids’ club, and fitness centre – which includes activities like yoga, tennis, and the city’s number one show, La Perle by Dragone.
