More Reasons Why It’s Smart to Order Valentine’s Day Flowers in Advance
One Dozen Red Roses
1. Get a Good Delivery Time
The season of romance is our busiest time of the year, and our delivery schedules fill up fast. When you order your flowers early, you’ll have a better chance of securing a delivery time when you know your recipient will be available.
2. Don’t Stress Out (or Worse — Forget!)
The last place you should be on Valentine’s Day is scrambling in a crowd of last-minute shoppers, trying to find a decent bouquet and a half-decent restaurant with a table still available for dinner. Don’t risk wasting precious time for Valentine’s romance being stressed out or on the hook for having forgotten the holiday altogether.
3. Submit Special Requests
We do our best to accommodate all of our customers’ special requests, but if you plan to request a unique flower or customized design for Valentine’s Day, it’s essential that you order well in advance. We might need to place a special order with our supplier to get your flowers in time for the holiday, and flower suppliers are extremely busy this time of year.
4. Amplify the Anticipation
February 14th falls on a Friday this year, which makes it the perfect opportunity for extending the seasonal romance throughout the week. Deliver your flowers on Monday, so your sweetheart can enjoy them all week long.
When to Order Your Flowers for Valentine’s Day
Orders for Valentine’s Day can be placed weeks ahead. We usually start receiving orders in the middle of January. When our customers place orders in advance, it helps us know what quantities of particular flowers to have in stock. As a result, all our customers can get exactly what they want.
