What are LUXURY FLOWERS? And do you need them?

What is a luxury flower?

A luxury flower is characterized by its superior quality, premium status, unique and rare attributes, exceptional beauty, and a diverse range that often involves extensive breeding and hybridization efforts. These blooms are distinguished by their limited availability with high demand, challenging cultivation, and, on many occasions, exotic origins.

What is an example of a “luxury flower”?

Luxury flowers include, but are not limited to the following: Peonies, garden roses, dahlias, orchids, calla lilies, lilies, exotic blooms like protea and more.

Here are 5 key elements to remember when considering luxury flowers for your wedding.

  1. They are higher-priced blooms compared to the regular standard “everyday flowers”. A luxury flower can be 3-4x the price of a standard flower.

  2. They don’t last as long. Typically luxury flowers have a vase life of 5 days, this is one of the reasons they’re used for weddings/events. Chances are after your wedding, they’ll start their decline process.

  3. They are used frequently in upscale events and weddings since they add a high level of sophistication and elegance.

  4. They grow locally (i.e. peonies in the spring, dahlias in the fall) and around the globe (i.e. garden roses from Europe, protea from Australia). Depending on what you are envisioning, we have the relationships and connections to responsibly source luxury flowers here in SW Missouri, Europe and abroad.

  5. They will blow you away. Be prepared to be so in awe, so captivated, so inspired and beside yourself when you see these marvelous luxury flowers. It’s not uncommon for our clients to experience tears of joy when they witness her bouquet for the first time. In addition, your guests will be “oooing” and “awwing” over how stunning your flowers are. The average person doesn’t witness luxury flowers in person, so when they see them up close on the tables, you’ll be hearing from them about how gorgeous your wedding flowers are for months (maybe years!). Believe me, we hear all about this.

Do you need luxury flowers in your wedding design?

At He Loves Me Flowers, we believe yes. Here’s why.

We are firm believers that each bride deserves the elegance of luxury flowers in both her bouquet and wedding design. The infusion of these exquisite blooms enables us to craft a truly magnificent, bespoke experience. The resulting bouquet, along with the entire wedding design, is so uniquely enchanting that it has the power to leave her utterly amazed. Our beloved HLMF brides often find themselves moved to tears of happiness. The joy is beyond measure!

It’s your choice.

You get to choose if you want unique, rare, captivating luxury flowers. If that’s important to you, then absolutely, yes luxury flowers are for you.

However, if you don’t have a strong preference on specific flowers, such as garden roses or peonies, or if standard flowers (i.e. roses, carnations, hydrangeas, or even a wildflower aesthetic) bring you joy, then that’s wonderful, and luxury flowers won’t be the best choice for your needs. Your objective is to identify your priorities and stick to them, and we’re here to help guide you in that process.

Ultimately, it’s your choice and that’s what makes your wedding so special…having a floral design that’s true to you.
