1. Rethink your floral choices.
Roses are fun, but the prices for them are inflated this time of year. Why not consider another variety that costs less? There are so many colorful choices such as mums, lilies, or carnations that can cost a fraction of the price. Why not consider those?
2. Ditch the vase.
A florist will charge you $10 and up for a vase. Instead, have your bouquet wrapped in colorful paper for free or bring your own vase. You can find gorgeous vases at thrift stores for as low as $1, so find your own and you are sure to save some cash.
3. Consider your location.
Are there any flowers local to your area? If so, those will always cost less than varieties that have to be shipped in. Opt for local flowers (your florist can help you with this if you are unsure) or just try to avoid exotic varieties that are sure to cost more.
4. Deliver them yourself.
Delivery is fun surprise but can cost you as much as an extra $20. Instead, deliver the bouquet yourself or have a friend do it for less. This is a simple way to still get flowers to your sweetheart while keeping some cash in your hand.
5. Think outside the bouquet.
Bouquets are fun, but potted plants cost way less. Find a flowering variety and your sweetheart can still get all of the color for less. Plus, potted plants last much longer giving you more bang for your buck.
