What are Emirati weddings like?

> First, the engagement takes place. The two families can have an engagement party if they wish.

> The marriage contract is signed by the groom and bride through a court, an imam or a sheikh. This means they are legally and Islamically married. According to Emirati culture, however, the bride does not move in with the groom until after the official wedding ceremony.

> The henna night takes place, where the bride, her family and friends get together to do henna, enjoy performances, dance and celebrate.

> The official wedding ceremony takes place, with separate celebrations for men and women. They may do the celebration at the same venue in two different halls, or at two different venues.

> The male can join the female side of the celebration later into the night, once only the main family members and friends remain at the venue. This is when the groom and bride cut the cake and drink either juice or a rose-water syrup drink together. (More details here)
