There’s a few things to take into account when choosing a florist that’s best suited to you, such as:

  1. Do they offer same day delivery? When you’re choosing a reliable florist that will continue to be your go-to, there will be times when you may need something at the last minute or you’d like the bouquet delivered right at the doorstop of your loved one and therefore same day delivery is essential
