Top Reasons Why You Should Order Your Valentine’s Day Flowers Before the Rush


1. Get Your First Choice

Every year, millions of floral bouquets are delivered for Valentine’s Day, which means the most popular designs, colors, and flowers always sell out fast. To make sure you get your first choice of flowers and aren’t stuck settling for something else, we recommend ordering one or two weeks in advance. If you’d like to customize your bouquet or order a flower that’s special to your significant other, it’s best to give us even more time to ensure we have the flowers you want in stock.

2. Don’t Sweat the Delivery

Valentine’s Day and the days leading up to it are the busiest of the year for our delivery drivers. If you order early, you won’t have to worry about the delivery schedule because you’ll be able to choose from a variety of times that work for you and your recipient.

3. Save Money

Flowers are usually sold at reduced prices through January, which means if you order early enough, you could save some money. Then, put your extra cash toward your fancy dinner or weekend getaway plans.

4. Skip the Stress

Nothing squashes romance quite like the stress of a disorganized Valentine’s Day. When the 14th arrives, you won’t want to spend the day rushing around in a crowd of other last-minute shoppers, trying to find a decent clutch of flowers for your love. Order early and spend Valentine’s Day relaxed and enjoying the romance.

5. Play Up the Romance

This year, February 14th falls on a Friday, which means it’s the perfect opportunity to stretch the romance out all week long. Deliver your bouquet on Monday to amplify the anticipation and make your sweetheart feel especially loved when she’s one of the first to receive a gift.

How to Choose the Right Valentine’s Flowers for Your Sweetheart

On Valentine’s Day, classically romantic designs featuring long-stemmed roses and flowers in various shades of pink and red are always good options. You can also make your bouquet a bit more personal by choosing a design that includes your significant other’s favorite flower or colors.

When in doubt, we welcome you to ask one of our florists for a recommendation. We can point you toward some of our favorite seasonal trends and help you select flowers that are currently at their most beautiful in our area. Whether you order in-person, over the phone, or online, our experts at Port Charlotte Florist are here to help you select the perfect flowers for celebrating Valentine’s Day with your special someone.
