BCME’s Top 5 Dubai-based Mother’s Day Recommendations
Our mothers undoubtedly play a huge role in our wedding day, and if you’re really lucky you’ll find that your Mum offers a wealth of support in the lead up to your big day, taking on tasks and helping you to delegate (and stay calm) whilst often reliving the emotions of her own wedding. She also faces a lot of pressure to look her best for your wedding – after all, the Mother of the Bride is an important and visible role that can sometimes leave women worried about letting down their beautiful daughters on one of the most important days of their lives.
As expats in the UAE, it can be difficult to have our Mums so far away at times. Be it work woes, relationship issues or just the need for a cup of tea and a chat, we all wish our Mums lived a lot closer. If you’re in the fortunate position of having your Mum visiting over this week, then here are some fantastic ways to say ‘Thank You’ over both Arabic Mother’s Day and UK Mother’s Day, which fall on 21st and 26th March respectively.
Below, you will find some super ideas on ways to treat your Mum. Enjoy!
Mother and Daughters Spa and Tea Day at Fairmont The Palm
Throughout the month of March, mothers and daughters can enjoy a 60-minute spa treatment of their choice at Willow Stream Spa followed by an award-winning afternoon tea for two at The Fairmont’s decadent Masharabiya Lounge. What’s more, if you book this luxurious package at The Fairmont, who also happen to be BCME vendors, for 26th March, you will each receive a complimentary glass of bubbly or a mocktail to add to the occasion!

Special Lunch or Dinner Menu at The Farm, Al Barari
This stunning, ‘world-away-from-Dubai’ location was where BCME’s founder, Rio, had her baby shower back in November. On 21st March, you and your Mum can enjoy a special Mother’s Day Menu for either lunch or dinner, whilst taking in the gorgeous surroundings of The Farm.
Gift voucher from Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas
This initiative from Anantara means that even if you don’t get to spend this Mother’s Day with your Mum, you can still show her how much she means to you by gifting her an e-voucher that can be used for dining at any of Anantara’s restaurants, spa treatments or getaways. BCME have featured a number of weddings at Anantara’s various UAE venues, so this is especially relevant if you are planning your own nuptials there!
