Teddy bears are out in abundance and store shelves are filling up with heart-shaped boxes of candy, which can only mean one thing: Valentine’s Day is almost here! Our romance experts at Julia’s Florist are here to remind you that the best way to plan for Valentine’s Day is to plan early. So, make your dinner reservations, pick out your gift, and get ready to order your flowers well-before February 14th to ensure you have the most special time with your sweetheart.
Why You Shouldn’t Wait to Order Flowers for Valentine’s Day
1. Avoid the Stress
Trying to purchase a nice bouquet and waiting until the last minute will undoubtedly result in a lot of unnecessary stress. To avoid the last-minute crowd and the chaos of piecing together a decent Valentine’s Day from whatever’s still available, order your flowers early.
2. Get Your First Choice
Millions of bouquets are sold for Valentine’s Day every year, which means the most popular designs, colors, and flowers sell out quickly. There’s also a big demand on farms and greenhouses, which can make it difficult to get specially ordered blooms delivered to us in time for a Valentine’s Day bouquet. To make sure you get your first choice in flowers and can customize the design to your heart’s desire, we recommend ordering at least two weeks in advance, if not sooner.
3. Schedule a Good Delivery
Valentine’s Day orders typically start arriving in the middle of January, which means our delivery schedule fills up fast and early. To make sure you get a great spot on the schedule, order in advance.
4. Save Money
Flowers are often sold at reduced prices throughout January, which means ordering early could save you some money. Maybe saving money isn’t exactly your idea of a grand, romantic gesture, but it can be if you put the extra cash toward your fancy dinner or another special something for your sweetheart.
5. Start the Romance Early
This year, February 14th falls on a Friday, making it a convenient year to celebrate Valentine’s Day for a whole week. You’ll build up the anticipation and amplify the romance, if you have your flowers delivered on Monday. Not only will your recipient be extra-surprised, but she’ll also feel incredibly special being one of the first to receive flowers. Plus, she’ll be able to enjoy her bouquet all week long, while looking forward to your plans for the big day.
