Dubai, one of the most visited cities in the Middle East, is world-renowned for its spectacular architecture and impressive skyline, its beautiful desert sands and beaches as well as the grandeur and opulence of its many hotels. Apart from being a popular tourist destination, this fascinating city has also lately emerged as a favourite destination wedding location. In particular, an Indian wedding in Dubai, together with a wedding in Thailand, is now one of the increasingly popular options for Indian couples planning a wedding abroad. The reason is its plethora of entertainment options and luxurious wedding venues that can cater the needs of any wedding, especially the needs of Indian weddings that most of the times are quite big with many guests.
Planning a destination Indian wedding in Dubai first of all has the advantage of air connectivity – just a few hours flight from India. Besides, getting married in a neutral location is an obvious choice in cross-cultural weddings or when the couple doesn’t live in India and there are friends and relatives in different parts of the world. Good weather all year round is another reason to pick Dubai, although the best months for a wedding and also the time that most people prefer to visit the city are from October to April when temperature takes a dip.
Josh and Nikki live in Canada and decided to have their intimate Indian wedding in Dubai because Nikki is of Indian origin and a Sikh as far as religion is concerned. Dubai was a convenient location because apart from being close to India, which the couple would visit afterwards, it is also home to the largest Sikh temple outside India called Gurunanak Durbar. The couple’s preparation took place at Fairmont in Palm Jumeirah, while the reception was hosted at the At.Mosphere Restaurant on the 123rd floor of Burj Khalifa Being in Dubai for Josh and Niki destination wedding was certainly a great experience and I literally can’t wait to be back.
