Looking for a bouquet to send to your bae? A quick internet search of “local flower delivery” is sure to overwhelm you with options and leave you with little clue where to start. You don’t want to waste your money or settle on a less than incredible arrangement. Thankfully, buying flowers online doesn’t have to be difficult when you know the basics:
Before you start, be sure to pick your target budget. No matter how much you want to spend, your loved one will be sure to appreciate their beautiful flower arrangement. You don’t have to spend a ton of money on a flashy arrangement to show someone that you love them. While bigger often means more expensive, also consider that the type of flowers can affect the price! A dozen red roses is a classic, romantic gift, but you could also say “I love you” with a larger seasonal garden mix for a similar cost. Don’t forget to factor in delivery costs as well when picking your budget!
Speaking of delivery, it’s also important to consider when and where you want your flowers delivered. Do you want to make a big statement and let the recipient show of their bouquet? Have the flowers delivered to their office so all their co-workers can see (and be a little jealous)! If you want to keep the gift between just the two of you, then opt for delivering to their house after they’re home from work. Learn about our delivery zones and options here.
Keep it local when picking a florist. While those online chain floral delivery websites are tempting, there’s nothing like the care and service that comes from a local florist. Any questions or concerns will be answered directly by the person putting together your bouquet. Choosing a local flower shop not only means you’re helping support small businesses in your community but also guarantees that the final arrangement is fresh, hand-crafted and put together with love.

When you aren’t sure what to send, trust the florist and yourself! Here are Charleston Flower Market, we offer a “just make it beautiful” option that leaves the little details of the arrangement up to us. If you’re really having trouble deciding, go with your gut on which bouquet looks like it would bring the biggest smile to your loved ones face. Whether it’s the vase or the colors of the arrangement that speaks to you, the bouquet recipient is going to love their flowers no matter what!
Before you submit your order, don’t forget to add a personal message to your delivery. Even if the recipient knows who the flowers are from, a short little note is a great opportunity to remind them how special they are to you or that you’re thinking of them. Besides, that cute message is almost always sure to gain you extra brownie points later on.
In addition to a bunch of beautiful blooms, consider also sending your loved one some of our sweet treats also. You’ll be sure to make their day with a delivery from Charleston Flower Market!
