Any suggestions for flower delivery for Thu?

I have had mixed experiences with ordering flowers for Valentine's Day with FTD and 1800flowers. I can't remember who burned me. How have all you fellas delivered flowers to your ladies with success? And have any of you been burned with no delivery? Thanks for the input!

Not much you can do other than use a local florist, and since you didn't fill out your location, we can't be of much help.

I placed an order on ProFlowers and got a 20% discount and guaranteed delivery on 2/14. I used them last year and the wife loved the roses and vase. They lasted a long time.

She's not local, it's long distance for now, but she is worth it. She's in Charlotte, NC.

Thanks for helping clarify the post. Good stuff.


I figured I could use a national company worst case scenario.

I believe 1800flowers uses a local florist. Looks like Proflowers might ship their own.

Go local. Go in person. You will get between 1 1/2 - 2x the quality over what you get with an online service.

The last time I bought flowers (a live arrangement) for my wife the girl gave me a dozen roses because "These are a little past their prime and it is a slow day, take these home so they don't go to waste." They lasted several days at full bloom. Stuff like that happens when you do business with people and form a relationship other than, "Sign in to turn on one click ordering."

I've always assumed better (and likely cheaper) service from local florists. For various occasions, I have just used Google Maps to search for florists nearby. Call 'em up and talk to a real live person at the actual neighborhood shop. Seems more reliable to eliminate the middle man.

Pro Flowers, and use the Promo code "RUSH."

Can't go in person. I like the idea of calling a local shop. It's in the city though so I can't guarantee honesty.
