Sending flowers is a lovely idea, no matter the occasion. For some, however, the cost of fresh flower arrangements can be enough to permanently dissuade them from the idea. Believe it or not, there are ways to choose and send a beautiful flower arrangement on a budget. Check out our favourite tips below:
What's in Season
Just like anything else, the prices of flowers can change according to what's in season and when. So, for instance, when choosing a budget-friendly flowers delivery in Edmonton, shoppers should expect to pay more for certain varieties of flowers during the winter and other times of the year when there's no way those varieties are being grown locally.
Single Varieties are Lovely & Less Expensive
You can expect the cost of the flowers to go up with the variety of flowers in the arrangement, so if you're looking for a well priced bouquet, consider one type of flower. A bouquet of only tulips or lilies, for instance, can be just as beautiful as a multi-flower arrangement.
Skip the Vase
If you're really looking to save, order a bouquet that doesn't come arranged in a vase. No matter who it is that you're ordering from, you will always pay more for the vase.
Flowers that Pack a Punch - for Less!
Another way to keep the cost of a flower delivery affordable is to choose flowers that are striking even in small numbers and that last a long time. Think sunflowers or Chrysanthemums, even Gerbera Daisies. They're striking but not shockingly expensive.
Delivery them Yourself
Obviously, if you're ordering flowers for a loved one out of town, say through Canada Floral Delivery, you won't have the option of picking up the flowers and delivering them yourself. But, when you do order flowers for a friend, family member or anyone else who lives in the vicinity, consider saving on the delivery charge.
Talk to the Florist
Another great way to save some money is to talk to the florist and to see when it is that their flowers are delivered. By ordering in advance of their delivery day, you will have more choice of affordable stems and it's easier for the florist to put together a less expensive bouquet of mixed flowers.
The next time you're ordering flowers for someone special, remember these tips and ensure your floral experience is a positive one without going beyond your budget.
