Tips for Buying Valentine’s Day Flowers

Buying Valentine’s flowers for that special someone can be a daunting task… but it soo doesn’t have to be. 

We’re going to break it down so before you know it, you’ll be a flower sending, moment-making, bloom sniffing wiz. 

So here’s to love, here’s to you, and here’s to never fearing flower buying ever again.  

Did we mention, Order Early?

WARNING: Florists WILL run out of flowers!

Working with local florists, we know that every Valentine’s Day, without fail, our partner florists have one thing in common: 

Running Out of Flowers!

Probably one of the worst feelings in the world is trying to order flowers for your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day, only to find out your local florist has sold out. 

And to make matters worse… 

Valentine's Day just so happens to fall on a Sunday this year, posing an even greater issue, as many flower shops will either be closed all day or closing early!

It’s never too early to order flowers for Valentine’s Day!

Order early, so as the big day gets closer and closer all you feel is confident (ok, maybe a wee bit cocky) about being way ahead of the game. It’s okay, you deserve it! 

Pro Tip: Ordering early also helps ensure you get exactly what you’re looking for. 

Contrary to popular belief, florists don’t usually have an abundance of every flower under the sun at their beck and call. 

Ordering your flowers early will give your local florist enough time to secure the blooms you want. You definitely don’t want to miss out on having your sweetheart’s fav flowers in their arrangement.

Give yourself some peace of mind and the freedom to focus on planning out the rest of your evening without distraction or fear of showing up flower-less on Valentine’s Day. 

Tip #2: Choose Quality

When buying flowers for someone who means a lot to you (and someone you’re trying to impress, nonetheless), you want the blooms you send to look the part, right? 

They’re representing you and your love, after all!

Where you decide to order your flowers from is soo important. 

Ordering from a local florist is always going to be the way to go. 

They know the ins and outs of their craft and do a pretty darn good job to boot. 

If you’re looking for the easiest way to find & order from a local florist in your area (or wherever you are sending flowers) at Lovingly.com, we make finding the right local florist for you almost too simple (not to toot our own horn, but toooooot). 

All you need to do is enter the zip code to which you’re sending here, choose your florist, and boom! You can place your order with the local florist of your choice! 

Easy, right? Told ya 😉

Tip #3: Shop Smart, Shop Local

No one wants to over-pay for flowers; better yet, no one wants to overpay for flowers and then not get their money’s worth…right!?

Ordering from a local florist is the best way to make sure you get what you ordered (and what you paid for). 

Tip #4: Choose Long Lasting Flowers

Choosing flowers your sweetheart will be able to enjoy for as long as possible is key.

Which means adding your own flare is so important!

Tip #6: Flowers Have Meanings

Flowers have meanings; take advantage of them! 

Different shades and different blooms can create different meanings in an overall arrangement.

Go for the classic red rose to send a message of passion & love or ranunculus for attraction & radiance.
