How a traditional Arab wedding takes place in Dubai
If you want to get married in Dubai, it is recommended to understand the values, cultures and the traditions of this beautiful city. It is well known that Islam is the major religion in the UAE and its superiority can be clearly seen in Dubai’s’ culture and civilization. Wedding traditions in Dubai are very thrilling and only close family members, friends or relatives are allowed to see the bride after setting the wedding date. Ritual says that is suggested for the bride to enjoy the good food and take as much rest as possible, before the big wedding day. The bride’s hair will be washed with extracts of jasmine and amber, as the wedding day comes near.
The bride’s complete body will be then massaged with oils and perfumes and then at night it will be covered with henna, her hands and feet will be decorated with mehndi, the famous paste used for all sorts of Arabian rituals. This incredible and special night is a chance for the two families to have a splendid time together before the traditional wedding takes place in Dubai. The groom's family will then dance down the streets of Dubai until reaching the house of the future wife.
