Fazza & Sheikha are close relatives ( maternal cousins), they have been engaged for a while before, so they must know each other very well. I don't think their reunion after all these years is only to complete a traditional arranged family marriage.
I can't understand too,some photos from instagram and hoplaa he is unhappy he is forced and so on.....
- Hamdan is 38 in ME society he is old too old for single man,men in ME don't stay unmarried tell this age untile they don't want to be married....
-Sheikh Hamdan is the next ruler of Dubai sure as grown man of 38 knows how to strengthen his postion sush marriage is seen very often as a way to reinforce the statut....
-Hamdan also as heir needs heirs and he need a mothe that her statut in the ruling family is favorable to his children.

I am not saying he is madly in love but also hard to believe he is forced or under pressures to marry this particular Shaikha like a 18 years old..
I can understand we all like fairytale and Disney stories but we have also to understand some and beacause of their position and who they are simply chose the way of mind rather than heart...or just follow their society traditions and codes wich is not bad Imo.

But constant marrying persons closely related lead to serious genetic disorders, what history of Habsburg dynasty clearly shows.

Exactly!!! I didn't want to mention it but Indeed it is true and proven. We have a lot of diseases called "royalty diseases" because they were very commun into the européan royal families, just because of the multiple "consaguine" weddings!!! In this period royal grooms and brides were multiple times blood related and had full of family diseases because of the close parenting.
Even in animal breeding it is forbidden to cross them if they have close blood relation level.
It is another point also interesting. When you grow up as a child with your cousins, and you play since day 0 with your first cousin, you see her like a cousin, how could you 20 or 30 years after be in love with???

Of course. But in this case something is not clear. Where is the important point and tradition to follow?
Obey to parent's decision, or marry the first cousin?

The national holiday is mainly for Eid Al Fitr which marks the end of Ramadan in UEA. The wedding celebrations are expected to take place during Eid break.

As per to the wedding invitation you posted above & many sources the wedding celebrations will be held on June 6.
I just want to clarify that the national holiday is not given for the wedding specifically. It also marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan & the official Eid Alfitr break.

Maybe it's both in his case. Here in UAE it's not uncommon to marry your first cousin even it is not a tradition carved in stone. Often it is seen as strengthening the inner ties within a large family. For a member of a ruling family it can be beneficial and wise to choose your wife strategically (mind instead of heart while the latter might be occur with time too). If the spouse is selected within own family - maybe also following/obey parents wish -, then it is almost guaranteed that the spouse is already fully familiar with everything and accepted from everybody in your family. Everything would be easier for the newlyweds.

Thats right. The official ceremony to celebrate the marriages of CP Sheikh Hamdan, Sheikh Maktoum & Sheikh Ahmed will take place on Thursday, June 6. The event (wedding reception for men) held at Dubai World Trade Centre at 4pm and is expected to be attended by many guests. It follows a private wedding ceremony on May 15 at which the three couples signed the marriage contract called Al Akhd. After signing the marriage agreement there was a holy recitation followed by men performing a traditional Emirati dance.

As a part of the wedding invitation ornate gift boxes decorated with golden Arabic calligraphy were sent. Within the box is a silver pot, containing amber Omani halwa, a traditional sweet. The regional treat made of wheat starch, sugar, water, ghee, saffron, cardamom and nuts is often served during celebrations, decorated with almonds and crushed pistachios.

Thanks for the explanation Imanmajed!

Can you give a description on what happens in the wedding reception for the bride(s) and women guests? Do the men and women eventually congregate, or are the wedding festivities always segregate the men and women?

Men and women have separate wedding receptions, which can be held on the same or on different nights. Guests of an Emirati wedding typically number in the hundreds or thousands and for this reason brothers, cousins and close male friends often marry on the same day. Each bride, however, is usually the star of her own big night. Today in the larger cities often a special wedding hall or hotel ball room is place of the festivity.

Women's receptions begin in the late evening. Guests are received at the door by female relatives of the bride and groom and are offered various perfumes before seating themselves at the table of their choice. Tables may be laden with appetisers and sweets. A multi-course meal is served throughout the evening and servers circulate with coffee, tea and snacks.

After a few hours, the bride enters and walks down a long catwalk in the centre of the hall to a stage where she seats herself on an elaborate sofa. She can stay there to receive guests or circulate among them. Later a change in music alerts female guests to the impending arrival of the groom – the evening culminates with his entrance. He also walks down the elevated aisle, dressed in a gold-trimmed bisht cloak, with a handful of other close male relatives. The men stay there for a while and accept congratulations before taking the bride home. Newly-weds can live together once the bride’s wedding reception has been held with female guests.

Mens wedding receptions are less lavish and extravagant. They meet in big halls to congratulate the groom(s) who are present too. Traditional dances are shown and a meal is served. Servers circulating around with tea and coffee. The celebration for the male can be held on day too. Bride(s) or women never appear(s) at the celebration of the men.

This is a common formula, but wedding practices change according to the time, fashion, family and region in UAE. There are still neighborhood weddings at homes in traditional coastal, desert and mountain communities too. Such weddings often happen during winter and still remain popular in different Emirates. Hundreds gather from early morning to drum, dance and feast. Women celebrate it more discrete joining other female relatives in a house beside the tents set up for the men.

Thank you for your excellent explanation! I love learning about wedding customs from different parts of the world and from different religions. I'm surprised that the bride and groom can only live together once the women's reception has been held. Is there a reason for that, or simply it's tradition? Either way it is a very matriarchal custom in such a patriarchal society.

I suspect the women's festivities will be amazing, considering the brides are related to the Ruling family. To be a wall on the fly during the celebrations!

An Emirati wedding consists of several parts that end with the wedding reception of the bride. Only when all steps are completed the marriage is seen as official.

For sure amazing wedding receptions are to be expected. But even if bride and groom do not related to a ruling family Emirati marriages are often amazing and very expensive. This makes it difficult -if not impossible - for some young men to find an Emirati bride. Social expectations often force the Emirati couples to go into debt at the beginning of their marriage. This is a development that I see as very critical, even though it will certainly not be the case with the current weddings ahead of the ruling family.
