Top Unique Wedding Venues in Dubai 

For many, it’s always a good day to get married in Dubai. In fact, the city is skyrocketing to become one of the world’s most popular locations for destination weddings, and it’s not hard to see why.

We’re not just talking about the city’s run-of-the-mill hotels. Because in true Dubai style, everything here is grand, luxurious, and out-of-the-ordinary.

So, if you already have your wedding planner, flowers, and caterer down, it’s time to tick your venue off that list with one of these unique wedding venues below. 

Ritz-Carlton Dubai


Address: DIFC Off Sheikh Zayed Road – Dubai – United Arab Emirates

Contact details: +971 4 372 2835

Operating hours: 

  • 24 hours daily


  • Wedding packages start at AED 350 per person

The Ritz-Carlton luxury hotel has always been a top unique wedding venue among celebrities and A-listers. The one in Dubai is no exception, with its lavish ballrooms, exquisite culinary experiences, and breathtaking views of the cityscape.

Like they say, if you’re looking for glitz, do it at The Ritz. Who wouldn’t want to exchange “I do’s” with the Gulf and Dubai sunsets? 

The La Brise Lawn, which faces the beautiful beach, gives you that and more. It comes with Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah, and Ain Dubai as your backdrop. And yes, it can accommodate up to 1,000 guests!

Dreaming of a grand indoor wedding amongst chandeliers, arches, and grand ornaments? We think the massive 550-capacity Loulou’a Ballroom can make that dream come true.

What about a cocktail hour or an epic afterparty? Consider doing it at the stunning La Baie Lounge, one of the top nightlife destinations in Dubai.

But we’re just getting started. At The Ritz, you can get VIP treatment. You’ll get to work with a dream team of event planners, florists, and culinary maestros at your beck and call, like royalty.

But if you already have a planner in mind, you may bring them along as well. The Ritz is all about making your vision come to life!

Now, let’s talk about food. You’ll get an exclusive tasting session to get a glimpse of what your menu will be. Because, let’s be honest—when it comes to weddings, some people tend to remember the delicious food more than anything else.

And with all the stress of wedding planning, of course, you need to pamper yourself before the biggest day of your life. It’s a good thing that The Ritz-Carlton has you covered in that area.

Forget about booking a regular hotel room for prep because the hotel has “The Bridal Room.” Yes, this suite has everything a bride can dream of—from its own makeup stations to dressing areas.

But the fun doesn’t stop there, because The Ritz-Carlton Spa will also take care of your pre-wedding pampering treatment. 

Pro tip:
Want to take your wedding customizations to the next level? You may do so according to your traditions and personal preferences. The Ritz has packages for garden, traditional, Arabic, and blessing ceremonies.

The Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa is one of Dubai’s most distinctive wedding venues—and for good reason. After all, how many people could say that they got married at the world’s tallest building?

Located in Downtown Dubai’s most prestigious address, the Armani Hotel gives you the best views of the city, from the Dubai Fountain below to the Dubai Marina nearby.

But it’s not just about the views. Imagine getting married in a hotel designed and furnished by the iconic Giorgio Armani! From the menu to the giveaways, every detail looks luxurious and opulent.

For starters, you can get married inside the grand Armani Ballroom, a 450-guest capacity space furnished with backlit resin walls, dark gray carpet, and Italian black marble details.

Whether you’re going for a classic modern wedding or a grand fairytale celebration, this venue seems to be the perfect canvas for the look that you’re going for.

But if you want to get married with the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Fountain as your backdrop, there’s the beautiful Armani Pavilion that can accommodate up to 1,000 guests.

Just picture yourself walking down the aisle in a lush garden facing the majestic fountain show! 

What we love about this area is that it also has a designated kitchen facility, so you can hold your cocktail hour and dinner reception in the pavilion.

Don’t want any hassles in planning your wedding? We suggest working with the hotel’s own team of wedding planners, who can make your journey stress-free.

Just choose from one of their personalized wedding packages, and your wedding planner will take care of the rest of everything else for you.

Atlantis The Palm

Contact details: +971 4 426 2000

Operating hours: 

  • 24 hours daily


  • Wedding package starts at AED 400 per person

Atlantis The Palm isn’t only the crown of Palm Jumeirah, but it’s also one of the most unconventional wedding spots in Dubai. You can get married in a grand ballroom or in an outdoor setting here, whichever your heart is set out to do.

Sure, we already know it’s packed with world-class amenities, but just wait until you see how it can turn your dream wedding into a reality.

And with the most spectacular views of Palm Jumeirah and the Arabian Gulf, you’ll probably feel like royalty on your wedding day. 

Are you inviting at least a thousand guests? There’s Asateer, a private venue within the resort that can accommodate up to 1,200 seated guests. With a separate entrance, valet parking, and a spacious lobby, you get to enjoy pure exclusivity on your big day.

If you’re craving a royal celebration vibe, no worries! There’s the Atlantis Ballroom and The Royal Terrace, with their massive chandeliers, drapery, and intricate details fit for a king and queen.

The best part is that you can take the party outdoors at the Royal Terrace, which has amazing views of the Dubai skyline.

But Atlantis The Palm isn’t done impressing you yet. If you want to keep your wedding smaller or more intimate—say you’re getting married with just 300 guests, the Silk and Spice Ballroom might be the perfect option for you.

A blank canvas for the theme and decor of your dreams—what more could you ask for? Or if you want to make the most of Dubai’s sunshine and get married outside, you may do so by the Palm Grove, Palm Beach, or Family Pool.

If you have at least 800 people on your list, the venue can even extend to the Atlantis Pools, where you can enjoy a separate area for cocktails before guests feast on your seated dinner.

To make things easier, Atlantis The Palm also has a team of wedding planners and consultants who will work with you to make your dream wedding come true.

Other than that, you could get a one-night stay in an Imperial Club Room and access to the Imperial Club Lounge. You may even enjoy The Lost Chambers Aquarium and Aquaventure as a couple—what a fitting wedding treat!

  • 24 hours daily


  • Wedding package starts at AED 480 per person

The majestic Burj Al Arab is undoubtedly one of the most unique wedding locations in Dubai. With its opulent decor, breathtaking views, and luxurious amenities, you could feel like royalty from start to finish.

Dreaming of a grand celebration? The Al Falak Ballroom, a two-storey venue designed to look like a Viennese opera house, is the perfect venue for posh individuals.

Think gold leaf and Swarovski crystals and a grand staircase to make your entrance as newlyweds—how extravagant!

If you want a more intimate celebration with the Gulf and sunset as your backdrop, the Palm Garden, with its lush greenery and stunning surroundings, might be more suitable for your celebration.

You also have the Marina Garden, where you can host your cocktail hour, reception, or even your after-party.

But if you’re really keeping it small and getting hitched with only family and friends in attendance, do it in style at Suha and Tameen! It’s an intimate venue with majestic views located 200 meters above the ground.

Yet if these options didn’t impress you enough, how about exchanging vows on top of a helipad? 

Aptly named Wedding in the Skies, this unique package puts you 212 meters above the Arabian Gulf on the hotel’s helipad, if you’re willing to pay AED 200,000 for the experience.

You’ll get the full VIP treatment before, during, and even after your wedding, starting with your arrival on a Rolls Royce Phantom or an Augusta 109 helicopter.

Of course, you’ll also stay in one of the exclusive suites in Burj Al Arab and enjoy all of its world-class amenities. You’ll be given a wedding architect who will guide you through the wedding preparations as well.

And when it comes to crafting your wedding menu, why not savor a private food tasting session with Executive Chef Maxime Luvara? After that, you can collaborate with Head Sommelier Dimitar Dimitrov to perfect your cocktails and drinks for the big day.

But what’s a wedding without a cake? Executive Pastry Chef Johannes Bonin and his team will take care of that and all your wedding desserts. You’ll even get a consultation with the hotel’s team of florists for the floral arrangements at your venue.

Additionally, you can prepare for the big day by training with a personal trainer and indulging in beauty treatments at Talise Spa. And don’t worry about your first dance nerves—the hotel offers private lessons on dance and etiquette too!

Finally, you’ll enjoy exclusive access to the city’s best jewellers, fashion brands, and couturiers to shop for all your looks with the help of your personal stylist. 

Now, all it takes is your personal touch to complete the picture-perfect wedding ensemble.
