A wedding is a magical occasion which involves gruesome preparations and coordination. Weddings celebrated in the Indian subcontinental countries however, are at a whole different level. Apart from the usual event logistics, weddings celebrated by Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Nepalis, and Sri Lankans, implicate numerous traditions, rituals and ancient practices. Indian weddings in particular, are known for their style, grandeur, food, rituals, and magnificence. A traditional Indian wedding for example, lasts an average of three days – the opening rituals on the first and second day, and the third day where the main ceremony and reception take place.
With all these rituals, logistics, and expectations in mind, the meetings & events team at the Radisson Blu Deira Creek unveils ‘Bandhan’ Weddings by Radisson Blu – a concept which specializes in accommodating elaborate weddings of such size, grandeur, and length. Bandhan [pronounced bahnd-han] is a Hindi word which means “bond.” This concept was created with the intention to craft unique and personalised wedding experiences, that come alive with great food, fabulous venues, exquisite décor and above all, unparalleled service. Bandhan Weddings, feature custom packages which include not just the venue and food, but also a bridal suite, complimentary cake and room for the couple, special room rates for the couple’s family and friends, and preferred rates with wedding suppliers.
“Our team does more than ten large-scale Indian weddings every year. We know that it is not only about the bride and groom, but also about the unification of two families. We understand that you will be judged by the venue you choose, the food on the table, and finally the brand you work with. I am proud to say that our team has been in the events and catering business for almost 45 years. Our credibility speaks through the portfolio of high-profile and lavish occasions that we have done over the years, ” says Jan Hanak, General Manager of the Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai, Deira Creek.
The Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai, Deira Creek has become the trusted caterers of several government entities due to their excellent food quality and service. They cater any number, from intimate gatherings of ten, to events as large as 5,000 guests.

This is why there is a dedicated Weddings & Events Centre right inside the hotel, and a wedding specialist available on hand to assist the couple with everything from looking for the perfect venue, creating bespoke menus, price negotiations, down to referring clients to preferred wedding suppliers.
