Why We Recommend Ordering Your Valentine’s Day Flowers Early


1. Get Your First Choice

Millions of bouquets are delivered every year for Valentine’s Day, which means the most popular designs, colors, and flowers are sure to sell out fast. To ensure you’re able to order your first choice of flowers for your sweetheart, it’s essential that you order at least one or two weeks early. If you plan to customize your design with a unique flower, we recommend ordering even sooner to allow us enough time to make sure the flowers you want are in stock.

2. Schedule an Easy Delivery

Valentine’s Day and the days leading up to the holiday are the busiest time of the year for us and for our delivery drivers. Delivery schedules fill up rapidly. Order early to make sure you’re able to get a delivery time that works for you and your recipient.

3. Skip the Stress

Valentine’s Day is all about romance, and nothing squashes the magic quite like the anxiety of trying to pull together a passable Valentine’s Day at the last minute. Order your flowers early, so you don’t have to fight the crowds and settle for leftovers.

4. Celebrate all Week

This year, February 14th falls on a Friday, which is perfect if you want to extend the romance a few extra days. We recommend having your flowers delivered on Monday. Your sweetheart will love being one of the first to receive a gift and will think of you every time she admires the lovely bouquet through the week.

5. Save Money

Flowers are often sold at reduced prices in January. By ordering early, you can save some money that you can use to put toward your fancy Valentine’s Day plans.
