What does this mean for people planning a wedding

Most UAE residents and expats; find it difficult to get married whilst having long working hours. Often enough we have found couples trying to squeeze in their wedding in their erratic schedule. However; the long weekend in UAE and Qatar is the perfect opportunity for getting married.

If you haven’t booked your wedding at the Dubai or Qatar court yet; we recommend couples to fly down to countries such as Georgia and Seychelles. Both countries welcome UAE residents with easy visa facilities. And its the perfect way to wrap up your wedding with a quick holiday in the mountains or the beaches.
