Posted on November 30, 2016 at 4:17 pm

Many people now choose to order flowers online, which has its clear benefits. It’s quick, simple and means that you don’t have to take the time out to visit a florist in person. However, it can have its limitations and you should always be cautious. Here are some tips to follow if you decide that you want to order flowers online:

  • Check reviews of the florist. Do they have a good customer service record? Do they charge reasonable prices? Have people been happy with the flowers they have received?
  • Find out as much about the florist as you can. If you are able to, look at photos of their work. This should be quite simple if they have produced wedding bouquets – there will often be photographs on people’s blogs that are easily searchable.
  • Look at the florists’ website. Look out for photographs of work they have done, as this shows that they are willing to go to lots of effort and are proud of what they do. If they have just used stock photographs, you won’t be able to get any real idea of their abilities.
  • Be completely clear about what you want. If you love roses but hate peonies, make sure they know this. Tell them about your favourite flowers flowers-429041_1280and colours, and if you can, perhaps even show them some photographs of bouquets and flower arrangements that you like.
  • Tell the florist what the flowers are for. They will be able to choose flowers that are appropriate for the situation. For example, tulips and roses are often associated with love, whereas lilies are often used for funeral services.

Follow these tips to make sure you get beautiful flowers from online florists. You will be the recipient of a beautiful bouquet in no time at all.
