Wedding Dresses in the Gulf

Khaleejia said: Women in the Gulf love their abayas, evening dresses and wedding dresses to be adorned with a lot of crystals.

Here's an article where you can read about modern weddings in the UAE. Although I don't agree with people in the article saying that nowadays expensive weddings are "traditional".

Actually there were no white wedding dresses or extravagant parties in the ballrooms in the past in the Gulf. This is a new tradition borrowed from the Western culture. Before the bride would wear a traditional green dress and a burqa...

Bellow are wedding dresses from Reem Al Hosany rental in UAE.

Renting their wedding dresses will cost 5.000 - 18.000 AED. Renting evening dresses costs 2.000 - 6.000 AED
