How to send flowers to someone in Richmond

richmond skyline

From the flowers you choose to how and where they are delivered, there are a few things to consider when buying and sending flowers in Richmond:

  • Reason for flowers: If you are sending flowers for a holiday (Mothers Day, Valentine's Day, etc.), it is important to do so ahead of time. You won’t be the only one ordering flowers for these occasions, so make sure you get your order in early. Also, ask about specialty bouquets and arrangements centered around the particular theme or holiday.
  • Type of flower arrangement: When you think of flower delivery, you may think of a bouquet of fresh flowers, but many Richmond florists also offer table arrangements for events, wreaths for holidays and extras like stuffed animals and balloons.
  • Flower options: There are many different kinds of flowers to choose from, and they all have a unique look, smell and meaning. Make sure your Richmond flower delivery service has the type of flower you are interested in sending. Smaller florists may not have access to rare flower types, so always ask before you order.
  • Flower delivery time: Many Richmond florists offer next-day flower delivery, and some even offer same-day delivery in certain areas. If time is of the essence, ask about these expedited services and how much they cost. Depending on how busy the florist is, they may or may not be able to accommodate a same-day request, but it doesn’t hurt to ask. Most florists have a cutoff time during the day when they no longer accept same-day or next-day orders, so purchase as soon as possible to make sure you qualify.
  • Freshness: Nobody likes to receive dead or dying flowers. Ask the florist about their fresh flower delivery options and what their process is to ensure flowers are bright, bold and beautiful upon arrival.

One of the best things you can do to ensure a smooth delivery is to call ahead and place an order at least a week before the desired delivery date.

How much does it cost to send flowers in Richmond?

You can send a small bouquet for less than $15, or you can send a premium arrangement for over $100. Many florists have fresh flowers in stock that can be arranged in a few hours for a standard price, while custom orders may take longer and cost more. The size of the bouquet, the type of flowers and the kind of arrangement can all play a part in the total amount you pay for flower delivery in Richmond. On average, a classic birthday bouquet with mums and creations in a glass vase costs between $35 and $45, plus a $10 to 15 delivery fee.

Many factors go into the price of flower delivery. The average delivery fee ranges anywhere from $6.99 to $17.99, depending on things like peak seasons, expedited delivery, special handling instructions and the recipient’s location. Expedited delivery costs more than traditional delivery, and most florists have a purchase minimum for deliveries.
