Wedding Legalities and Services
Given Dubai’s vigor for glamor and luxury, the services offered here are top notch and ensure a wedding that no one will forget. The ideal time to hold a wedding in Dubai is between November to April when the weather is cool and pleasant, and most European, American or Canadian citizens do not even need a visa to enter. With any high-season, it will be a bit more expensive during this time, which means you may need to scale back the size of the wedding you hope to have or think of another great alternative for getting enough funds.
Given that the government is very strict with regards to all the paperwork that must be submitted according to nationality and residency status, quite a few couples choose to legalize their weddings in their home country and then head to Dubai for a symbolic wedding and a grand celebration. Since it is a hotbed of different religions and cultures, finding a wedding celebrant is an easy task if you don’t plan to invite a priest of your choosing.
They say beginnings set the tone for everything that follows. Make sure that yours will be the best!
