Even More Reasons to Order Ahead for Valentine’s Day


1. Get Your First Choice of Designs

Every year, millions of bouquets are delivered for Valentine’s Day. With flowers in such high-demand, the most popular flowers, designs, and colors sell out fast. To make sure you get to choose from a complete selection and are able to order your first choice of designs, be sure to beat the crowd and order early.

2. Schedule a Great Delivery Time

Valentine’s Day and the days leading up to it aren’t just a busy time for florists, but also for floral delivery drivers. Our delivery schedules fill up quickly around Valentine’s Day, so it’s important to order early if you want to be able to schedule the delivery time of your choice.

3. Start the Romance Early

This year, February 14th falls on a Friday, which makes it the perfect opportunity for celebrating Valentine’s Day all week long. If you deliver your bouquet on Monday, your recipient will not only feel extra-special being one of the first to receive flowers but will also get to enjoy the bouquet throughout the week. Plus, delivering flowers early will amplify the romance, excitement, and anticipation surrounding the most romantic day of the year.

4. Save Money

Flowers are often sold at reduced prices in January, which means that ordering early could save you some money. Although getting a great deal doesn’t sound like a grand, romantic gesture, it can be if you put the extra cash toward your fancy Valentine’s Day plans.

5. Get Crazy with Customization

Nothing says “I love you” like showing you know your sweetheart well enough to remember her favorite flower, but if you wait too long to order, we might not be able to get the right flowers in soon enough. Flower suppliers are extra-busy this time of year, which can often mean delays in special orders. If your special someone loves a favorite flower that’s somewhat rare or unique, be sure to order well in advance to ensure we can get them delivered in time.
