Teddy bears are turning up on shelves and chocolates are being sold in heart-shaped boxes, which can only mean one thing: it’s almost Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day is all about romance, and there’s nothing less romantic than procrastination or forgetting altogether. Our florists at Roots and Willow in Rome, GA are here to remind you to take care of your Valentine’s Day plans early.

Top Reasons Not to Wait on Ordering Your Valentine’s Day Flowers

1. Risk Settling

Millions of bouquets are sold every year for February 14th, which means that the most popular choices in flowers, colors, and designs always sell out quickly. If you want to take your pick of bouquets without having to worry about settling for whatever happens to be left, we recommend ordering in advance.

2. Struggle with Scheduling

It’s our busiest day of the year, which means it’s also the busiest time of the year for our delivery drivers. With so many bouquets getting delivered on and leading up to Valentine’s Day, our delivery schedule fills up fast. To make sure you’re able to snag a delivery slot that works for you and your recipient, get your order in early.

3. Stepping into Stress

The last way you should be spending your Valentine’s Day is rushing around in a crowd of other people who waited until the last minute to take care of their V Day plans. Waiting will only cause unnecessary stress that you most certainly don’t need on Valentine’s Day, a day when it’s important to be able to relax and enjoy the company of your sweetheart.

4. Missing out on Romance

Having Valentine’s Day flowers delivered early is a huge opportunity to create some extra romance and a whole lot of anticipation for the holiday. This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday, making it perfect for celebrating the entire week! Have your flowers delivered on Monday, so your sweetheart feels special being the first one at the office. Not only will she feel well-loved, but she’ll also be able to enjoy her bouquet every day of the workweek.

5. Risk Forgetting

What’s the ultimate mistake on a day like Valentine’s Day? Forgetting about your sweetheart and your plans, of course. If you think about ordering flowers now but choose to put it off until later, you risk forgetting to do it altogether. Take care of your flowers now, so you can put it out of your mind completely.

More Tips on Getting a Romantic Bouquet for Valentine’s Day

For Valentine’s Day, your bouquet should be all about romance. For you, romance might mean choosing a design that feature’s your love’s favorite type of flower or color, or it might mean selecting a seasonal design with long-stemmed roses and a color palette of pinks and reds. When in doubt, it’s best to ask for an expert florist’s opinion.

To make sure your delivery goes smoothly, be sure to provide all the necessary information including your recipient’s full name, address, and delivery phone number. If we’ll be dropping the bouquet off at an office or apartment building, please also provide the apartment or suite number, the floor, and/or the relevant department.

At Roots and Willow, we recommend putting your Valentine’s Day order in at least two weeks in advance to ensure you get to choose from the best selection and are able to schedule your first choice of delivery times. Whether you order over the phone, online, or in our flower shop, our florists are here to help you choose a perfect bouquet for celebrating a day of romance with your special someone.
