Travel broadcaster Phil Blizzard discovers a wedding fair inspired by the graceful sailboats that glide across the Dubai Creek.
Located alongside the city’s famous inlet the InterContinental Dubai Festival City will be hosting their first wedding fair for 2015 on 20th and 21st February, providing a platform for all the hotel’s preferred suppliers and partners to exhibit their services, as well as showcasing the property as the perfect place to say “I do”.
The event will be split into four areas, catering to the tastes and needs of various nationalities of Dubai and the UAE, with each section – Arabic, Indian, International and Experiences – having its own look and feel. Guest speakers will be in attendance to share their expertise and there will be plenty of creative interaction to enjoy on the days.
The InterContinental Hotel, Dubai Festival City, is the perfect location for a wedding. Offering two elegant ballrooms accommodating up to 850 guests, this modern landmark hotel stands tall on the Dubai Creek. As the sunset gives way to darkness, the city’s twinkling lights create a stunning backdrop.
During the event there will be raffle draws and brides who book their wedding during the fair will be entered into a prize draw to win a “Honeymoon to remember” package with accommodation and flights to three exciting cities within Europe.
It is also the ideal venue from which to explore the city of contrasts, shop at Dubai Festival City Mall or the world-famous gold souks, and enjoy the green fairways of the championship 18-hole Al Badia Golf course.
Exclusive amenities at this Dubai hotel include Michelin-starred Reflets par Pierre Gagnaire restaurant for world-class dining, a full-service spa and 25-metre outdoor pool.
