December 11, 2017, Dubai, UAE – The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai offers the ultimate luxury wedding experience for couples to be, who are looking for a personalized celebration from beginning to end. The Ritz-Carlton Dubai promises an unforgettable journey for the bride and groom, and lifelong memories to be shared with their family and friends.

The Dubai based Wedding Planner and Stylist who’s attention to detail and creativity in designing a unique ambience for each occasion is unrivaled, making them the natural partner for this very important and ever changing element of the Ritz-Carlton memories.
This “marriage” was commemorated with an intimate Wedding Garden Party on December 9th, with My Dubai Wedding carefully styling each table to perfection, with a lawn showcase of diverse wedding styles, paired with utmost creativity from the food and beverage teams with a bespoke cocktail matching the moodboard of each table, the Pastry Chef of the hotel designing a cake reflecting the soul of the table theme, and giving a glimpse of the wedding trend forecast for 2018.
The Wedding Gazebo at The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai underwent its first make-over for 2018 launching exclusively at the wedding garden party. Perfectly positioned overlooking the Arabian Gulf, with uninterrupted ocean views, the gazebo has always taken pride of place during the weddings proceedings. The gazebo was dressed with a modern twist of a decorative balloon feature, which is predicted to continue to be a popular detail to wedding celebrations, for 2018.
With the increased number of younger couples are choosing to tie the knot, this allows for additional creativity and some more lighted heart fun, with introduction of more diverse colors and themes, such as the flamingo table styled to appeal to millennials getting married in the sunny Dubai climate. Expect to see materials including vinyl, acrylic, personalized neon ghost chairs, bamboo and glitter included in these wedding requests for a modern wedding which does away with any tradition.
Merging of Culture and Urban trends
Whilst wedding traditions have been passed down through families and cultures for thousands of years, the growing diversity of the multicultural landscape of Dubai and other metropolitan cities has brought about the blending of the very best of these elements. With wedding couples looking to represent both elements of their heritage, with the urban concrete table representing a super trendy, chic, industrial and modern touch, where Hoxton, London meets the meatpacking district, New York. The decorative features fuse Middle Eastern influences with urban simplicity.
With many couples choosing upon a more healthier lifestyle, in sync with nature, in 2018 expect to see the use of natural materials and colors from bamboo, flowers and fruit, as showcased on the farm to table and beautiful organic display tables. Using dehydrated fruits not only for table decoration but also used to ornate a matching cake and drinks options, carefully weaving the chosen theme across all features of the very special day.
The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai is able to accommodate both intimate celebrations and large-scale weddings, offering locations inside a multitude of the resort’s ballrooms and beautiful al fresco lawn locations amidst the beautiful gardens and un-interrupted views of the Arabian Gulf to make it a perfect location for the once-in-a-lifetime celebration.
