  • Plan a Trip

  • One of the most popular ways of celebrating an anniversary is taking a trip. This can be a romantic getaway to a nearby city, a beach vacation, a cruise, or even a staycation - a holiday spent in your country rather than abroad.

    If you reside out of the UAE, we suggest you plan a trip to Dubai where you can enjoy various entertainment outlets, go shopping in the best shopping malls, and experience incredible dining.

    Speaking of which, you should try the amazing The View at the Palm, where you can dine with your partner and take in the breathtaking views of Dubai’s skyline. Watch the sunset with your significant other and indulge in delicious meals at The View at the Palm.

    If you reside in Dubai, you can plan a staycation for a few days and enjoy various entertainment destinations, restaurants, and outdoor activities. You don't want to miss The View at the Palm, especially since it is around the corner.

  • Renew your Vows

  • You can renew your vows for a more intimate way to celebrate your wedding anniversary. This can be done in a private ceremony or with friends and family present. It's a beautiful way to reaffirm your love and commitment to one another.

    The party can be a small gathering of close friends and family or a larger event with your loved ones. You can also consider a theme to add more flavour and character to the party. Various hotels and venues in Dubai offer spaces where you can host the party of your dreams, so explore your options before settling on the best one for you, your partner, and your guests.

  • Movie Night

  • You can go to the cinema, watch a movie just like you used to do in the early stages of dating, and follow this movie date with a nice dinner. For a more low-key movie night, create a beautiful and romantic set-up with some soft, romantic lights or candles, make delicious snacks or order food, and enjoy a night in to binge watch your favourite movies together.

  • Go on an Adventure

  • If you and your partner are adventurous, consider going on a hike, bungee jumping, scuba diving, or a desert safari. Celebrating an anniversary in such adventurous and unusual ways will surely make your day memorable. If you are not that adventurous yet still want to do something fun and outdoor, you can go on a road trip! Plan your destinations, make playlists of your favourite songs, and hit the road.
