This is Jeddah`s most elite wedding hall,if you had the chance to be invited to attend a wedding reception there do not hesitate.
Wedding reception is almost the only way to dance the night away on live music in Jeddah,take notice in this country weddings are for women only to attend :-(
But still it is a chance to meet people and enjoy the live music preformed by local female singers,accompanied by a music band!
Well if you didn`t get a wedding invitation you can always visit the restaurant next door,check my restaurant tip it`s called(Al-multaqua).
Dress Code Our wedding receptions can be very glamorous,wear your most expensive dresses and jewellery!
Have in mind also that wedding reception starts late nights,,really late.....about 10 p.m to 5-6 am next day so you might as well wear long lasting make up;-)
The word Leylati in Arabic means "my night" as any bride would feel!
I will place a picture from the inside of this wedding hall.
There are two halls.Laylati one is the older hall and Leylati two is the newer one,
both are amazingly beautiful.

It's funny when tourists think that Saudi has no nightlife while in fact Saudis are very nighty people.
Weddings are a major night activity where usually starts at 11:30 pm and finishes at 4:00 am.
At 11:30, the family of the bride and groom arrives at the reception hall. Then they start to receive guests at 12:00 pm. Usually the singeress arrives the same time with her team and instruments. Her colleagues are called 'Taggaga', and the main instrument is the traditional 'Duff' or 'Taar'.
Guests from 12:00 pm-2:30 am would be waiting for the bride and groom to show up together. While waiting women dance all the night on the stage until the couple appears to public. The buffet usually served at 3:30 am.
So it's a dance night and a fashion show;^)
Dress Code Since it's a wedding night, women dress up their souree dresses.
Since weddings are segregated activity, women can dress anything revealing and expressive. When the groom comes to the hall, they wear on their black abaya to cover hair and dresses (cultural and Islamic costum)
