Why You Shouldn’t Wait to Order Valentine’s Day Flowers


1. Design Choices

Millions of bouquets are delivered every year for Valentine’s Day, which means the most sought-after designs, colors, and flowers usually sell out fast. If you wait to order, the arrangement you had your eye on might sell out before you have a chance to order. Put your order in before everyone else to ensure you get your first choice in flowers.

2. Delivery Difficulties

Valentine’s Day and the days leading up to the holiday are extremely busy for our delivery drivers, and our delivery schedules fill up quickly. To make sure you’re able to secure a delivery time that works for you and your recipient, put your order in before the rush.

3. Unnecessary Stress

The stress of leaving Valentine’s Day plans unresolved until the day arrives will surely squash the potential romance of the day. Show your Valentine how much you care by taking care of everything early, so you can relax together and enjoy each other’s company on the holiday.

4. Missed Romance

This year, February 14th falls on a Friday, which makes it a perfect opportunity to create an entire week of romance and anticipation. If you wait to order and deliver your flowers, you’ll miss out on the chance to have your sweetheart think fondly of you every time she admires her lovely bouquet from Monday through Friday.

5. Special Requests

The closer it gets to Valentine’s Day, the more difficult it is to accommodate special requests. We try our best to meet everyone’s wishes, but with high supplier demand and slower delivery times, a late order could limit you to the types of flowers we already have in stock.

When Should You Order Your Valentine’s Flowers?

For regular orders of featured designs, we recommend ordering one or two weeks before Valentine’s Day. For special or customized orders, we recommend contacting our florist even sooner.

Ask for a Personalized Valentine’s Day Design Recommendation

For Valentine’s Day, classic floral designs featuring long-stemmed roses and other blooms in pink and red are always a great choice, but you can get more personal by selecting a bouquet of your sweetheart’s favorite flowers. If you’re not sure what to choose, we welcome you to talk with one of our florists. With just a little information, we can provide you with a great recommendation on a floral design your significant other is sure to love. Whether you order online, over the phone, or in-person, our flower experts at Rose Hill Flowers are always available to help you choose the perfect flowers for celebrating love with your Valentine.
