What could be more exotic than saying your vows on a beach in Dubai?
Saying your vows on a helipad owned by one of the world's top luxury hotels 700 feet above the Arabian Gulf, that's what.
Burj Al Arab, sometimes referred to as the world's only "seven-star" hotel and famous for its sail-shaped exterior, is offering a wedding package where the ceremony takes place on its famous helipad. The hotel's helipad has a history of hosting special events: Why shouldn't your big day be among them?
In 2004, Tiger Woods teed off the helipad and in 2011 Rory McIlroy performed a hole-in-one from the helipad. In 2005 Roger Federer and Andre Agassi challenged each other to a game of tennis and in 2013, Formula One Champion David Coulthard performed donuts in a Red Bull Racing car.
Weddings start at $55k (not bad when you consider the average wedding now costs $30k, according to TheKnot.com) and includes arrival at Burj Al Arab by air in Italian twin engine Augusta 109 or by road in Rolls Royce Phantom; suite accommodations; Private tasting sessions with the hotel's award-winning chef; wedding cake consultation; beverage sampling and advice; beauty treatments and fitness sessions with "celebrity" personal trainers; private lessons in etiquette and dance; styling sessions and more.
And don't forget to ask for a 24-carat-gold iPad at check in.
