Tips for Ordering Flowers in the Internet

I often get people asking me about sending flowers on the internet so here are some tips that will help you pick the right floral website and hopefully avoid the bad ones and scams.
  1. Look for seasonal discount offers online. Many florists have a bargain section where great buys can be had. Choose a flower bouquet that has more greens or a mix of flowers for a larger looking bouquet.
  2. Check with the BBB to see if the florist is a legitamite florist and make sure they dont have to many complaints and if they do have complaints check to see if they have been resolved. Real florists are serious about making customers happy and want you to keep ordering flowers from them so will go the extra mile to resolve issues quickly
  3. Its a good idea to make sure that the florist you are ordering from is in the same city or a surrounding city as to where you want the flowers sent. This will usually avoid your order being forwarded from florist to florist.
  4. Phone the florists toll free number or local number and ask them if they recommend anything , or if they have any specials or discounts on fresh flowers. This helps because the florist knows what is freshest and they will also want to keep your sale so they will often offer you a discount or coupon to order from them. You can often get 5 dollars or 10 dollars off this way !
  5. Give as much detail about the flower delivery and any special instructions as you can . If there is a buzzer number provide it, make sure you provide a phone number for the recipient and for yourself, if it is a business then tell them it is a business as well as the hours the recipient works from.
  6. Always give a second choice ! - Sometimes the flowers you order are not available in specified color, the shipment doesnt come one time, or they simply are out of season. If you give the florist a second choice of flowers such as (if White orchids are not available please use white roses).

Hope these tips help for all you flower fans .

Say it with flowers
