Ordering wholesale flowers online is something that requires some planning. Here, at BloomsByTheBox.com, we believe in being there for each customer, every step of the process, from beginning to end. So to get you started, here are the top 5 questions asked about ordering wholesale flowers online, a little jump start for ya!
1. When should I place my order?
Orders can be placed up to 45 days in advance of your desired ship date. You will select your ship date during check out. When possible, we recommend that orders for weddings be placed 2-3 weeks in advance of ship date. This will allow for the most flexibility to fill your order as requested.
Note that some items (such as garden roses) MUST be ordered in advance to allow for transit time from the growers (“lead time”). The number of extra days that is required for these items is indicated on the product detail page.
Products that are in stock (shown on the website) can be shipped immediately:
Orders placed before 2:00PM (ET) Monday-Thursday can ship the same day.
Orders placed after 2:00PM (ET) Monday-Wednesday can ship the next day.
Orders placed Friday-Sunday or after 2:00PM (ET) on Thursday can ship Monday.
2. When should I have my order shipped?
All flowers from BloomsByTheBox are shipped via next-day delivery on the requested ship date. No matter where you are in the continental US!
We suggest having your order shipped 3 days before the event. Your order will arrive 2 days before your event allowing time for flower hydration and arranging. For example, for a Saturday wedding, request a Wednesday ship date for Thursday delivery.
3. How do I figure out how many flowers I need for my arrangements?
4. I can’t find a flower I want. Why do the products and prices change frequently?
Because we are constantly buying from around the world, we keep our offerings on BloomsByTheBox.com up to date with only products we know we can deliver and at the best prices available each day. Products may not be available on a given day because of seasonality or because we have none available to ship that day. If you don’t see a product you want to order, call us at 855-BUY-BLOOMS or email customer service.
5. Should I do a trial run?
Yes! Although we do not have free samples, our low $50 minimum order, means you can order small quantities of items you are interested in. This means you can receive a couple bunches of flowers that and practice hydration and arranging!
