Planning a large wedding in Dubai may seem a difficult task, but if you consider a proper timeline and the recommendations of our wedding event planner, you can enjoy the best day of your life. Usually, for this type of event, the newlyweds agree to invite about 200 or 300 people, therefore, a special attention needs to be paid when creating the wedding guests list. In this article, we propose to guide you in this outstanding event and to make things as easy as possible.

Choose the proper venue for a large wedding in Dubai

If you have decided to get married in Dubai, then you should expect luxury, opulence, and amazing services. Places like Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah or Atlantis the Palm are among preferred deluxe venues to have a large and exclusive wedding and are on top list suggestions from our planners in Dubai. Many VIPs, like football players or movie stars, have chosen to say the unique vows in a special and beautiful city like Dubai.
The qualified personnel can provide you with essential details about the table arrangement, wedding theme, wedding reception preparation, and timeline. Our Dubai wedding planners can schedule some meetings with the managers, in order to explain your visions and ideas about your special day in the city. Most venues can offer a personalized menu if a particular budget is mentioned. Make sure to ask details about the capacity of the venue and about the possibility to create extra menus for extra guests. As a recommendation, you can also choose to have a special lounge or room for cocktails, buffet or candy bar, in order to avoid crowdedness. Related to the served courses, you should know from the beginning that for a large wedding, the service will take a little bit more time. Your caterer can help in this matter and can provide you with more personnel, so you can relax and enjoy the evening with friends and family without worried about this aspect.

The wedding invitations for a large wedding in Dubai

First of all, the guests list needs to be arranged in different categories, such as close friends, family members, colleagues, acquaintances or associates. If you have gathered about 250 or 300 people, then it is time to create the wedding invitations and to send them with five or even six months before the wedding in Dubai. You can impress everyone with a special style for a wedding invitation of such amplitude. There are certain guidelines you need to consider, like:

•    mention the date and the venue;
•    write a few details about the reception and about the dress code if you have one;
•    add short and important details about the room reservation for overseas friends;
•    don’t forget to ask for a response in a proper time.

Our wedding planners can offer you a list of contractors in Dubai who can create amazing wedding invitations, where you can add a touch of your personal style and design.
