Here is what the experts at Rosewood Abu Dhabi shared with us:
What distinguishes Rosewood as a wedding venue from other venues in Abu Dhabi?
Featuring floor to ceiling glass windows, grand ballrooms and palatial outdoor areas Rosewood Abu Dhabi offers the perfect wedding venue, whether that means an intimate gathering or spectacular weekend extravaganza. The first meeting with the hotel’s resident wedding specialist starts in the new Wedding Studio; an intimate location to discuss and understand each bride's vision for the wedding day. The Studio showcases wedding cake options, as well as, theme and set-up possibilities.
Once Rosewood Abu Dhabi’s wedding specialist understands the brides' vision, the experience then moves onto location scouting - the most popular venue being the Rosewood Ballroom.
Due to the location of the property - set on Al Maryah Island, both the ballroom and its entrance have panoramic views out over the Abu Dhabi waterfront, creating a magical atmosphere, with the city lights providing a dramatic backdrop.
In terms of catering, Rosewood Abu Dhabi prides itself on offering homemade traditional recipes fit for any wedding celebration. Most importantly, the hotel pledges to provide the same level of service whatever the number of guests might be. Bespoke menus can be curated according to individuals' wishes and further modified during extensive taste tests.
Finally, the wedding experience doesn’t finish on the night of the celebration, but continues with a relaxing stay at Rosewood Abu Dhabi, complete with breakfast in bed.
What are the main wedding facilities/venues you have at Rosewood?
The Rosewood Ballroom is the most popular venue due to its floor to ceiling windows and waterfront corridor entrance, as well as the flexibility to be split in half, allowing for various set-ups.
For more intimate celebrations the Yasmin Ballroom is also a favourite.
What are the main services you provide for brides & grooms wanting to host their wedding at Rosewood?
A dedicated wedding specialist works with the couple from their very first visit to Rosewood Abu Dhabi until the couple checks out of the hotel, ensuring a personalised, tailor-made experience for each guest. The Wedding Studio is a big asset as it immediately creates an exclusive feel to the whole experience - brides can touch and feel items, so it becomes tangible and exciting! In addition, once guests have checked into the room, a butler is assigned to each couple making sure those special touches are in place for a truly memorable stay.
What advice do you have for a bride & groom regarding selecting and working with wedding venues?
We highly recommend that the bride and groom put their trust in their wedding venue of choice, as on the wedding day itself the bride needs to be able to relax, to enjoy her special day with no worries. Fundamentally, the couple needs to be able to picture their dream wedding in the location and the venue needs to understand each couples wishes and be flexible, where necessary.
