Is It Smart to Order Valentine’s Day Flowers Early?

The stores are filling up with teddy bears and heart-shaped chocolate boxes, which can only mean one thing — Valentine’s Day is almost here! To make sure you enjoy a perfectly romantic holiday with your significant other, our Alexandria florists at Conklyn’s are here to remind you how important it is to take care of all your Valentine’s Day planning before February 14th arrives.

Big Reasons to Order Flowers Before Valentine’s Day

Have Your Pick of Floral Designs

Millions of floral arrangements are sold every year on Valentine’s Day, which means the most popular designs, colors, and blooms sell out quickly. By ordering early, you can reserve the color and variety of Valentine’s bouquet you are looking for. If you wait until the last minute, you may find what you are looking for is already sold out.

Enjoy Easy-Breezy Delivery

With so many bouquets traveling out the doors on Valentine’s Day, delivery schedules fill up fast. To make sure you’re able to reserve a delivery time that’ll work for you and your recipient, be sure to order early!

Eliminate Stress

The last way you want to spend Valentine’s Day is by fighting crowds at gift shops and floral boutiques. By ordering early, you’ll be able to simply relax and enjoy the most romantic day of the year with the most important person in your life.

Save Money

Flowers are often sold at reduced prices in January, which means ordering early could save you money. Although getting a great deal on flowers maybe doesn’t sound very romantic, it’ll be extremely romantic when you put your extra cash toward your fancy dinner date or room service during your Valentine’s Day weekend getaway.

Create Exciting Romance

This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday, which makes it perfect for celebrating an entire week of romance and anticipation. Have your flowers delivered the Monday before the holiday to begin a slow build to the main event on the 14th. Your date will get excited for what you have planned and also get to enjoy the bouquet all week long.

So, How Early Can You Order?

It’s never too soon to order flowers for Valentine’s Day; you can even place your order in January! Typically, Valentine’s orders begin arriving in the middle of January. We recommend ordering at least a week in advance in order to access a complete selection and still have flexibility for delivery times.

Choose a Local Florist, Instead of a National Chain, for Quality You Can Count On

At Conklyn’s, we specialize in flowers. That’s all we do — fresh, high-quality flowers, and artistic designs! When you order local, you can always expect to receive the best of the best in terms of freshness and beauty. Plus, we’ll never charge you unexpected delivery or processing fees that are often unpleasant surprises included with ordering from a national floral delivery company. Whether you order online, over the phone, or stop by our flower shop, we’re ready to answer your questions and help you select the perfect bouquet for Valentine’s Day.
