The business of weddings continues to rake in hundreds of thousands each year, but more so in the UAE where the wedding industry is worth well over USD 700 million annually and luxury weddings are more commonplace than anywhere else in the world[1]. Unsurprisingly, this comprises a large slice of the worldwide wedding industry, the annual operation cycle of which clears USD 300 billion[2]. To help UAE brides-to-be navigate the ins and outs of luxury weddings, celebrity wedding planner Patrizia Cilli, through her eponymous events creation and management company, will host The Wedding Excellence 1-to-1 event in Dubai for the first time ever this May.


“UAE weddings tend to be elaborate, lavish affairs, with the number of guests running well into the thousands and the ceremonies fanning out over several days and multiple venues,” says Cilli whose A-list clientele includes Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, George Clooney, Sir Paul McCartney, Richard Gere, celebrity stylist Danie Bles and Lucien Arkas, to name a few. While Cilli’s events company is headquartered in Italy, she has recently established its presence in Dubai.

The Wedding Excellence 1-to-1 event (25th & 26th May) will offer UAE brides-to-be a chance to consult with high-profile wedding, fashion, style, health and wellness brands and industry professionals. Alongside Cilli, experts available for exclusive consultations at the event will include haute couture specialist Jessica Garnetti, celebrity hairstylist Fabrizio Narducci, celebrity floral designer David Beahm, and trainer and nutritionist Rob Donker.

Commenting on why she selected Dubai for this event, Cilli says: “The UAE, and Dubai in particular, with its year-round sunshine, beautiful locales and top-notch luxury hotels, has all the makings of picture-perfect weddings. We will be bringing a touch of Italy to the UAE with this event.”

Alongside personalised, one-to-one consultations with top experts, The Wedding Excellence 1-to-1 event will also feature high-end brand displays with customized, jewelers, healthy cuisine and sweet flavors, flower installations and a unique bridal wedding gown collection.
