The wedding will be an all-encompassing recreation of a traditional UAE Bedouin wedding with the popular traditional dance Al Rasfah being performed by two rows of men swinging sticks in their hands and dancing shoulder to shoulder while humming a tune to greet guests.

"We are re-enacting weddings of Bedouins from different parts of the region, which is complete with genuine rituals of tribal life and these are performed by real life Bedouins based on life itself," said Chairman of DTCM Committee for DSF 2003, Abdullah Hamdan bin Dalmook. The DSF underlines the DTCM's commitment to promoting the UAE's heritage.
