Blissful Plans

Abu Dhabi is located on an island in the Persian Gulf, off the Central West Coast. Most of the city and the Emirate reside on the mainland connected to the rest of the country. It is also the largest of the UAE’s seven emirates and thus, a great place to plan a destination wedding.

Climate/Best time for getting married

Often times couples look for getting married in the UAE but destination weddings in Doha, Bahrain, Ras Al Khaimah and Oman have become increasingly popular. Although Dubai and Abu Dhabi are extremely sought-after for tying-the-knot, these other destinations across the middle east have a splendour and charm that is at par with Dubai. Though not as popular or touristy as Dubai, Doha, Bahrain and Oman can be great choices for hosting a destination wedding in accordance with your religious rituals; a magnificent wedding.

The best time of year to get married in Abu Dhabi is from October to March for hot sunny days and mild evenings. From June to September the temperature is well into the mid 40s and isn’t much cooler in the evenings.

Weddings are the celebration of traditions. And these traditions are implemented differently in each culture. The United Arab Emirates is a rich and famous country where weddings are celebrated in a very lavish manner. For destination weddings, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, is in popularity. Is it the sun-sea-sand charm or the myriad of cultures that meet in this exotic land?

Placed perfectly at the mouth of the Persian Gulf, Middle East cities are fast climbing the hotspot wedding venue charts, winning against Thailand and Indonesia. Located just four hours away from India in a fortunate midway mark, the region is a cultural crossroads with grandeur, luxury and a global-local flavour to match the new-age Big Fat Wedding. Abu Dhabi, the place of culture, pristine beaches, and beautiful palaces, making it a convenient and viable option to host a destination wedding. It is not only a convenient option for your relatives and friends living in India but also a beautiful location to begin your journey of love and happiness.
