Even though gifting flowers on Mother’s Day is hardly rocket science, there are an absurdly large number of things that need to be taken care of to ensure the flowers reach as intended and arrive on Mother’s Day. Follow these pointers and you will be good the first time and every time when ordering flower delivery!
Book Well In Advance
Gifting flowers on Mother’s Day is quite popular and all florists tend to get overwhelmed with orders closer to the day. There are multiple issues that can take a toll on your good intentions of gifting flowers if you leave the booking late. Firstly, you may not get the florist to agree to make the delivery on the date you specify. Also, the prices of the flowers shoot up exorbitantly and there is every chance you will not get the flowers that you may want. It is not uncommon for florists to mix up orders in the rush, and the vase that you had ordered or the card you had specified not to be delivered at all. Ideally, you should order a few weeks ahead but specify the delivery date to be on Mother’s Day. It is more likely that you will get a delivery slot free when you book in time.
Choose a Reputed Florist
Since it can be puzzling how to choose a florist to send Mother’s Day flowers because all of them seem alike, you should choose one that has been recommended by family and friends or has received a lot of positive feedback in online reviews by customers. Make sure that the florist has a delivery service to the location where your mother lives; typically, all florists have affiliates or partners that they have tied up with for this purpose. While comparing and contrasting offers by different florists online can give you a good deal, beware of those that are ridiculously cheap because you can be sure that the flowers or the delivery will not be up to the mark.
Check Out Your Order before Confirming the Booking
Before you proceed to checkout and pay, make sure that you have indeed selected the flowers you want and assure yourself that you have made the right choice keeping in mind your mother’s preferences and color scheme of her house. If you have included any accessories like a card, vase, or chocolates then make sure that your cart has them all. Find out if the shipping cost is extra or included in the price. Ensure that the florist makes deliveries to the selected destination because otherwise, it can be a complete waste of time and effort.
If your mother has a busy schedule, it may be possible to deliver the flowers only in particular time slots so you need to find out if the florist can assure you of this. You also need to check out the fine print to make sure you know what is being delivered, for example, the lovely cane basket or handcrafted porcelain vase shown in the photo with the flowers may actually cost some more money as it’s not included. Make the payment only when you know what you are being charged for.
