Choosing The Right Date For Your UAE Wedding
Choosing the right date for your Dubai/UAE based wedding, is perhaps the most important consideration when planning. Selecting the wrong day on the calendar can have a profound influence on the success of your event, so it’s important to get this aspect right.
As brides caught up in the excitement of planning our weddings in the UAE, we can sometimes overlook the small details, or even the bigger ones. Fear not, we all miss a detail or two and there have been cases in the past where brides have unknowingly booked their wedding day on a key date in the Islamic calendar. At Bride Club ME, we not only bring you ‘the pretty, the whimsical and the nice’, we also bring you serious logistical tips and advice.
Below, we list key dates and events to take note of and/or possibly avoid when deciding on your official wedding date in the UAE.
Please bear in mind that many of the Islamic public holidays involve a period where alcohol is not served for 24 hours – a so-called ‘dry night.’ If you wish alcohol to be served at your event, you should avoid making a booking either side of the holiday as well as on the actual holiday date itself. Flights will also be heavily booked around these dates, as well as around the dates of the non-Islamic religious festivals, such as Easter, Diwali and Christmas.
Below are also some dates to consider when planning your wedding. These are not necessarily dates to avoid, but dates to be mindful of, as traffic flow may increase and hotels may get booked up quickly due to the major events and expo’s listed. – Information provided by Clare Ebbs at Aghareed Weddings.
