Where to Buy Fresh Flowers in Dubai

Flowers are an important part of everyday life. Fresh flowers are a versatile piece of nature that without fail make an appearance not only at the big, important moments in our lives but also in all the little ones. From weddings and funerals to birthdays and anniversaries, or just because, flowers always seem to be the perfect celebratory gift or decoration. And when we’re not enjoying a special occasion or event, these beautiful bundles add a sweet-smelling aroma and splash of bright colour to any room. Yet, when buying flowers, we don’t tend to put much thought into where we purchase our blooms. As long as it’s fresh and pretty, we’d buy it anywhere – even at a supermarket. But is this for the best? Since lilies, carnations, roses and the like play an important part in our lives, it’s worth investing in a quality bunch of flowers. Let’s look at where to buy fresh flowers in Dubai and why it’s better to shop at a florist.

Price and convenience are two significant deciding factors when choosing to buy from a supermarket or florist. Supermarket flowers cost a fraction of a florist’s bouquet and can be bought while grocery shopping – which is both convenient and efficient. Florists might charge more, but you receive better value for money. The flowers are of a premium quality which ultimately justifies the higher cost. Not to mention that flower delivery services ensure that you’re able to have a fresh arrangement delivered right to your doorstep.

There is a stark difference between the quality of supermarket flowers and ones from a florist. Supermarkets purchase from suppliers whereas florists sell professional grade direct from growers. Florists are professionally trained to treat and process flowers in a way that keeps them fresher for longer periods. Flowers at a supermarket are not given the same expert treatment and are often left out at room temperature and placed near ripe produce which is harmful to flowers and causes them to wilt at a faster rate.

Buying flowers can be a surprisingly difficult task when you’re not an expert in horticulture. Whether it be advice on how best to care for your flowers or which bouquet is best to buy for your loved one, it would be helpful to have a florist’s insight and expertise on hand. Since flowers are only one of many products in a supermarket, it’s unlikely that you’ll have access to someone who has extensive knowledge on the topic. And given that a florist’s entire business and passion centres on flowers, you can be sure that you’ll get expert advice on any questions you may have. 

Each flower has a different symbolic meaning. For instance, roses symbolise romantic love and lilies are offered to convey devotion and purity. No matter the occasion or event, there is always a flower that suits it best. Supermarkets do not usually carry a wide variety of flowers. For the most part, they have large bouquets of the same popular flower wrapped in paper. Florists are more suitable for those who want options and creativity in their arrangements. Not only do they offer a greater selection and assortment of flowers, but they’ll arrange it in a unique and beautiful composition.

At a supermarket, flowers are only one of a wide variety of products on sale. The staff will not prioritise selling you a suitable bouquet and you’ll be left on your own to choose from a small selection. Florists specialise in flowers and have a passion and love for horticulture that no supermarket could match. It is in their best interest to not only sell you premium flowers but to give you the best possible service and experience.
