In addition, knowing that it’s a weekday, you can make advanced arrangements on whether you have time to plan a sweet couple’s getaway, book a seat at Los Angeles’ prime date night locations, or if you have to celebrate in advance or a bit late in case it overlaps with something else.

Understandably it can be quite daunting to shop for Valentine’s Day flowers online since you don’t get the chance to make a connection or get blown away as you would when you see the arrangement in real life. That’s why you have to be meticulous when choosing an online florist you can trust.
1. Big doesn’t necessarily mean better.
Sometimes popular online flower shopping platforms take in more orders than they accommodate, increasing the chances of late deliveries and unmet expectations. Shopping directly from a local, homegrown floral boutique gives you the assurance that every arrangement is handmade with passion and precision.
2. Do a background check.
Check verified customer reviews on Google or Yelp and read comments on their social media accounts to see what people are saying about them. Scroll down from the Valentine’s Day posts from previous years. Usually, that’s where you’ll see unhappy customers venting and ranting about their failed VDay flower orders.

3. Go for a local floral boutique that caters to the recipient’s address.
Shopping as locally as possible cuts travel time for the flowers, reducing stress and increasing their shelf life plus minimizing the carbon footprint involved. Orchid Republic dispatches flower delivery orders fresh daily from our Sherman Oaks and Santa Monica Floral Boutiques and Orange County workshop.
4. Ask if they can send a photo to you before delivering the arrangement.
Like with anything online shopping, expectation vs reality stories are also common with flowers. The most foolproof way to reduce the risk of this from happening to your Valentine’s Day flowers is to ask for pictures before getting them out there.
