Ever since the marriage of the three sons of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai was announced, the country has been anticipating the wedding reception.
On May 15, Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, married Sheikha Sheikha Bint Saeed Bin Thani Al Maktoum. On the same day his brothers, Sheikh Maktoum Bin Mohammad, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, married Sheikha Maryam Bint Butti Al Maktoum, and Sheikh Ahmad Bin Mohammad, Chairman of the Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation, married Sheikha Midya Bint Dalmouj Al Maktoum.
The brothers were wed in a private Islamic wedding ceremony where they signed an official marriage contract, and now, the invitation card to their wedding reception along with its date has surfaced. The text on the invitation is written in elaborate gold calligraphy on an off-white card. On the top, the invitation reads the name of Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid inviting guests to attend the wedding reception of his sons.
The names of the grooms – Sheikh Hamdan, Sheikh Maktoum, and Sheikh Ahmad are written below from right to left. Details like the venue, date and time are written at the bottom of the invitation which reads that the reception will be held on Thursday, June 6, 4:00 p.m. at the Dubai World Trade Center.
The invitations sent out for the wedding ceremony were accompanied by a traditional sweet dish, the Omani halwa inside a gift box with “The happiness of the Al Maktoums” embroidered in gold thread.
