Set between Europe and South Asia and with a reputation for unapologetic luxury, Dubai has all the elements in place for the destination wedding of your dreams. The city is home to some of the most opulent hotels on the planet, including Palazzo Versace, one of just two (the other is in Australia’s Gold Coast). Expect views of the Dubai Creek, grand venue spaces, and a setting that unites Versace’s Italian heritage with warm Arabian hospitality.
The beauty of booking a destination wedding venue is your guests can stay in the same place, eliminating travel issues and creating a relaxed holiday vibe. As the happy couple, you’ll have your pick of the suites, all of which are dripping with custom-made Versace décor. The Signature Suite feels royal; think cheerful sunshine yellow parquet floors and a gleaming marble-clad bathroom. There are plenty of guest sleeping options at Palazzo Versace. The hotel has 215 hotel rooms and suites, plus 169 residences (luxury one to six-bed apartments, ideal for large groups and families). All rooms and suites uphold the same standards of Versace excellence, so your guests will have an incredible stay whatever option you choose. Give your in-laws and bridal party the VIP treatment with a suite, which includes exclusive perks like the Executive Lounge. Who doesn’t love a little downtime by the pool? Guests can enjoy three outdoor pools before or after the wedding, complete with luxury cabanas and sun-loungers. Thirsty? Grab a drink from the pool café.
There’s nothing like having your loved ones all gathered around a table. Choosing from a traditional three-course meal or a sampling of various delicacies, you and your guests will have the kind of wedding breakfast that will be talked long after the last crumbs have been devoured. The hotel can cater the menu to your wishes.
