Own private pics yes but none public. Cameras and phones are taken at the door. Usually there would be Jalabiyas were worn but now the western style is in. Yes, traditional white dress.

Yes. Sheikha Hind and Shaikha's mom are sisters.

Thanks for the information! I wish the couple happiness.
As for the wedding, I am sure it will be a standard upper-class event.

The "Nikkah", "Milchah", "Nikkah-nama" whatever will be a few days before. But if Sheikha Hind wants to change it she can. The "Nikkah" date is never determined completely until before the wedding. As of now it is a few days earlier.

On the invitation you get a small entry card which says "for one person only" and that goes for a lot of weddings not just royals.
Sometimes if you know the family well, they send you a few extra cards to bring friends along. On the entry card, the invitie name is not on it (only on the actual invite envelope) so if you decide not to go, someone else can use your card.
Depending on how tight security is, you sometimes can get away with getting someone in but everyone gets checked meaning they walk theorugh a censor and mobiles with cameras are taken away and they give you mobiles with camera.

Respect: a second wife is one thing. I will be dissapointed if Hamdan chooses to take a second wife (and i would be appaled it that second wife becomes 'public' while the first is hidden away), but he is allowed to do so. But having third/four wives become dubious. And more then that, hmmmm...... Not to mention kids popping up suddenly from all kinds of ' unknown' mothers. Well, you know perfectly well what i mean.

Do u mean Shaikha Hind determines the Nikah date? Do the bride and groom have nothing to say about their wedding? Is the bride allowed to choose her own dress, the music, menu or the flower arrangements or is she totally kept away from it all? Like a surprise party

The grooms parents, mostly the mother always suggests a date of the wedding and talks it through with the brides family. The bride does have a saying in the date as well.
The bride chooses her dress without interference from the grooms mother (but in this case it will be different maybe since Sheikha Hind and the bride are very close). The bride has alot of saying in her wedding, most of the times she sits with the wedding planner and tells him/her what she would like, if the grooms mother chooses stuff its always agreed from the other side.

Very good to know. After all, it is the big day of the bride and groom !! I can imagine that Hind wants to know what goes on but it is Sheikha Sheikha's day so it is only logical she has the last word!

Exactly, Sheikha Hind suggested the date, I think I was adjusted because the bride had some problem with it. If the bride wanted a specific dress she could pick it out but she would have to show Sheikha Hind for her approval. Which is logical because I know when I get married I wouldnt want my mother-in-law to be having a problem with my "slinky" dress, not that I would wear one. What ever the bride wants the bride gets. But it is gone over with Sheikha Hind and the girls.

Why should a bride seek a mother's-in-law approval for her wedding dress? What is wrong with consulting her own mother, who happens to be a sister of her future mother-in-law? Is the mother's opinion in any way inferior than Sheikha Hind's one?

Well, your aunt is considered just like your mother. Sheikha Hind has to approve because if Shaikha picked out a really revealing dress that is even revealing for women to see she would either have to have it altered or buy a new one. Shaikha will consult her own mother too. But when the dress is being picked out it is shown to everyone for their likes and dislikes about it.

So Sheikha Sheikha's ( I hope the name is correct) mother can not distinguish between an appropriate dress and inappropriate one ...? Well, it sounds strange to me. However, each land has got its own tradition.

I don't know if Hind has more taste then her sister but I think it is good that one of them checks the dress. Better would be if they check it both. Some young girls really do not know anymore what is appropriate and what is not. Sometimes you see brides wrapped in a much-to-tight dress and a decollete.... Very distastefull and not very appealing for the groom if you ask me.
Does Sheikha Sheikha wears a western bridesdress, white and with a veil? Or will it be a colourfull arab dress?

Shaikhas personality is very traditional Arab. She will wear a white dress atleast that's the plan for now... When dinners happen she might wear the Arab dress.
