The big question popped-up, you said yes and then you started to feel the excitement and the thrill only thinking of how everything will be at your wedding in Dubai. There are so many things to do, and a proper timeline for your wedding is quite recommended, in order to have a little bit of control and to enjoy the special day of your life.

1. Choose the date, choose the wedding dress

Usually, the couples are taking 12 months to plan the wedding, to make some research and appointments. But with the help of our wedding planners, you can create your special event in only six or three months. From the beginning you should choose the date you wish to get married, taking into consideration the time of the year and if your friends and family will be available for your big event. Start looking for your wedding dress, shoes, jewelry, and groom’s outfit. This is the fun part!

2. Choose the wedding venue and the caterers in Dubai

When searching for the perfect wedding dress, make time and book some appointments with some venue managers and see what they can offer. Before you do that, make sure to write down your ideas about the wedding theme, table arrangements, dance floor and buffet, if you wish one. Most people choose a fall wedding in Dubai when the temperature is not that high. A beach wedding can be created in the first months of the year or even in September when people are not that busy. The wedding planner can also recommend you some great caterers in Dubai, with the possibility of tasting or creating the menus according to your ideas.You can also choose the wedding cake. You should start as soon as you set the wedding date.

3. Create the invitations for your wedding in Dubai

The wedding planners in Dubai can offer you some suggestion about how to create the wedding invitations and can provide a list of contractors. But you can also use your imagination and create them in a funny way to impress your guests with your sense of humor. If you have set the design, you can order them online with six months before the wedding.

4. Choose the makeup artist for your wedding in Dubai

With five months before the wedding, you can search for a makeup artist after a proper analysis via the internet where you can choose some ideas. As a recommendation, you might want to avoid smokey eyes for your wedding and you might like the natural look with a red-hot lipstick for a touch of romance. Don’t forget to book some trials to see what fits you most. This is also available for your hair.

5. Send the wedding invitations

With four months before the wedding, you can send the wedding invitations, in order to make the big announcement and to prepare the friends for the big event. It is recommended to ask for a response, in order to plan and to arrange the last details with the chosen venue in Dubai. If you wish a small wedding in Dubai, with about 40 or 50 people, make sure to add the closest friends and family members. For a large wedding in Dubai with about 200 invitees, you might want to double check the guest list before you send the invitations, to make sure you haven’t forgotten someone.

6. Check the wedding outfit

The last adjustments for your wedding dress and the groom’s outfit can be made with about two months before the big event. The dress has to fit, so should the other accessories, regarding the length, the fabrics, and the colors. If you change your mind about something, now is the time to make some modifications, in order to avoid the stress from the last moments.

7. Have some time for yourself  

A bride needs to shine from head to toe when walking down the aisle, therefore, some spa sessions, manicure, pedicure and beauty treatments are recommended two months before the wedding. You can also try some wedding manicure to see what you would like most and what would make you feel pretty. The manicure and the pedicure for the big day need to be done in the last week, so don’t forget to schedule them. There are so many luxurious spa centers in Dubai, and the wedding planner can help you in this matter, for you to feel beautiful and astonishing for your Dubai wedding.
