Why It Pays to Order Early For Christmas
Once again, I sound like a broken record, but it pays to order flowers for Christmas early. Here’s 3 reasons why:
- You’ll save money.
- You’ll get the best selection.
- You’ll get money-saving delivery options.
In the floral business, ordering early will get you the flowers you want at the best price.
Retail florists place orders with their suppliers 4 to 6 weeks in advance of the holiday season in order to make sure they will have the flowers their customers want to buy, and take advantage of any pre-holiday discounts that are available.
You should follow their lead if you plan to send flowers as well.
There will always be a few last-minute deals available, mostly to try and move overstocked flowers.
Christmas is the busy season for all retailers, including florists, so be sure to order early for the best selection. Popular flowers and plants do sell out.
If you wait until the last minute to order, I can almost guarantee that some flowers may no longer be available. You may have to settle for a second choice in order to insure timely delivery.
To prevent this from happening, I would strongly suggest you order as early as possible.
Another way to save some money is to have your flowers delivered earlier during the holiday season.
I know many people want to have their flowers delivered as close to Christmas as possible, but by allowing your florist a larger window for delivery gives them the opportunity for a timely re-delivery, should they initially be unable to find anyone home.
For this reason, many florists offer incentives for early delivery, especially during the holiday season.
Florists offer lots of choices for the holiday season, including a wide variety of flowers, plants, seasonal decor and delivery options.
Christmas day is always December 25th. Like birthdays and anniversaries, it’s a holiday you can plan for. So why wait until the last minute to order?
Simply choose the holiday flowers that best fit your style and budget, order now and pocket the savings.
