Can you feel the romance in the air? We can because Valentine’s Day is almost here! To ensure you have a magically romantic holiday with your sweetheart, florists at Wildflower in Arnold recommend organizing all of your Valentine’s Day plans in advance. Pick out your gift, get your dinner reservations, and get ready to order your flowers early.

Why You Should Order Valentine’s Day Flowers Ahead of the Holiday


1. Easy Delivery

Valentine’s is our busiest season of the year, which means delivery schedules fill up fast. Order early to ensure there’s a delivery time available that will work for you and your recipient.

2. Pile on the Romance

This year, February 14th falls on a Friday, and we recommend taking advantage of the convenient calendar. Start with a Monday morning delivery to surprise your sweetheart and make her one of the first to receive flowers. You’ll increase the anticipation, excitement, and build the romance until the holiday arrives. Plus, your Valentine will think of you every time she admires her gorgeous flowers.

3. The Best Selection

Millions of bouquets are delivered for Valentine’s Day every single year, which means the most sought-after designs, styles, colors, and flowers sell out surprisingly fast. We recommend ordering at least one or two weeks early to ensure you get to browse our entire selection and don’t have to settle for anything less than your first choice of flowers.

4. Savings

Flowers are often sold at reduced prices in January, which means ordering early could save you some money. Getting a great deal on flowers might not seem like a grand, romantic gesture, but it can be! Put your extra cash toward your fancy Valentine’s Day plans to create an extra-special memory with your significant other.

5. Keep Your Cool

Most importantly, Valentine’s Day is about relaxing and enjoying your loved one’s company. Ordering flowers in advance will help you keep your cool as the holiday approaches because you’ll know you have everything organized and under control. The last place you want to find yourself on Valentine’s Day is rushing around in a crowd of last-minute shoppers, trying to piece together a decent celebration of your love.
