The most-awaited wedding reception of the year — that of the Dubai’s Crown Prince and his brothers — is taking place on Thursday, three weeks after their marriages were solemnised. The Emirati society has been delighted with the news, with many calling the three unions “a blessing”.

Dubai Palace has been lit up with lights since days which is common in Emirati culture as a way to announce to their community that someone in their home is getting married.

Unlike other weddings of a reigning / royal member in the world, the weddings of UAE's ruling family members are discrete but glamorous affairs. There will be no television, no live broadcast and no photos of the brides available publicly.

In keeping with tradition, men celebrate together following the signing of the marriage contract and women will host their own party later. After the women’s celebrations, the couples can begin their new lives together as newly-weds.

Long before the first official guests arrived, crowds were beginning to gather outside the venue, the Dubai World Trade Centre. Although private, the men’s wedding celebrations had attracted enormous interest. Many of the UAE's ministers, dignitaries, and prominent businessmen were also in attendance.

As is the tradition, the arrivals were also met by Emirati ayala dancers — not one but three troupes beating drums and cymbals at the entrance to the exhibition hall. Glimpses on social media videos showed proceedings inside the hall, the largest in the WTC, which had been decorated in pale gold and cream, to match the groom's outfits - a white kandura and a cream bisht (cloak) with golden embroidery. A screen suspended from the ceiling showed a live feed of the brothers, with cream sofas lining one wall, and tables adorned with bouquets of white and soft pink roses, lilies and orchids.

As the sun began to set on Dubai, casting a warm glow over the city and the guests drifted away from the WTC, the party was set to continue after at Zabeel Palace, spectacularly lit for the event, and where more dancers were performing the leiwah dance and other traditional songs.

A blessed and happy married life to the three couples. All of Dubai are with you.

I was wrong about publicity for the upcoming wedding. It is surprising to learn that Emirati women have henna parties. I thought it is a purely Indian pre-wedding ceremony.

Thank you Imanmajed! Sounds amazing. Hopefully we have a glimpse of what the bride's wedding ceremony was like.

The Crown Prince married his cousin. And his parents are cousins too. Cousins in one or both sides. Isn't it too much? That kind of "endogamia" (I don't know how is the world in English) isn't dangerous? In European royal families, across all the history, it didn't end well.

Marriage amongst cousins is not unlawful in Islam, plus there is usually a blood test done before the marriage can take place.

Marriage between cousins ​​also exists in my country, Indonesia (their grandparents are same). And that is not a problem. Moreover if cousins ​​with distant genealogies such as Fazza & Shaikha. Their grandparents are different. ❣️

Yes, I say this because Sheikh Hamdan was engaged to Shaikha Saeed in 2008, that is when it was officially announced.

In 2009 Sheikh Hamdan presented a poem in public where he mentioned during the recital a phrase showing how happy he is because of the engagement. The poem was an old one (oldest appearance I could find was 2005) but not sure whether that phrase of engagement was included before 2008 or recently added after the engagement. After the broken engagement, few poems of his indicated his sadness.

Then after 10 years, fate brought them together again and they got married. So definitely looks like a love marriage.
