While Filipina women today frequently send flowers, the great majority of gift flowers purchased are still made by men for their new love pursuits, their girlfriends, for their woman, other woman, whomever. Anyway you look at it – women love flowers – the commercially universal symbol of love – that and diamonds. They love to receive them, look at them, show them off to friends and co-workers, and display them on their desks for all to see. I see it all the time. I used to do it myself. Of course that was when I was with a more devoted partner.
Today, flowers make wonderful presents for any occasion. They’re no longer just for the major holidays or birthdays. Giving flowers during special holidays is almost a given, for guys. But if you really want to score bonus points, try sending your special lady flowers for no special reason at all. It’s even better when she’s not expecting them.
One of the biggest gripes with sending flower arrangements as gifts is that they’re usually quite expensive. Flowers don’t come cheap and particularly around special holiday occasions such as Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. Prices can double during these high demand seasonal periods the closer you get to those special holidays. It would be nice to be able to save money by waiting till it’s off peak, but sometimes you just can’t avoid the premium periods.
Flowers are expensive. But in the Philippines, buying and sending them doesn’t have to break the bank.
As the bearer of flowers, there are two main options – you can either 1) buy the flowers at a cheaper price at the grocery store or local florist shop, or 2) choose to order them online and have them delivered. Both options are good for different reasons. Buying flowers at your local supermarket is definitely the most cost effective way to go if you have the time to browse and choose, as well as personally deliver the gift. If you don’t have the time to visit or browse the store’s flower selection, or if the distance between you and the intended recipient is too prohibitive, you can choose to place the order through an online florist and have it conveniently delivered. In most cases, online Philippine florists can deliver anywhere in the Philippines.
While you may be able to save time and effort by ordering online, it’s definitely going to cost a bit more. To give you an idea of what buying flowers online will cost you compared to buying them at your local Philippine flower shop: a dozen roses complete with a decorative vase at the supermarket will usually fetch about Php700-1200 on Valentine’s day; at a local florist they will usually go for a bit higher at around Php1400-2200; and online they will usually cost upwards of Php2400-3200 or more, although plenty of online flower deals, offers, and coupon codes abound. Another option is to buy them at side street vendors where flowers are frequently sold at great discounts or near wholesale prices. Places like Dangwa for instance offers a wide array of colorful but very affordably priced flower varieties – if you don’t mind doing a little bit of arranging yourself.

The Wedding Bells Are Ringing! Use These Tips For Yours!
Many of us have daydreamed about the day when we will walk down the aisle ever since childhood, right down to the gown we will wear, what our hair will look like, and the colors in our bouquet. Wedding planning can be thrilling but without help, it can be overwhelming.
Weddings are one of the more difficult things to plan during the course of your life. Make sure that before your wedding, you are extremely organized so you are in a great position when it comes time to decide on certain questions. This will give you the best opportunity for success.
Remember to consider how you would like the alcohol at your reception served, and how much it will cost. If there is one thing people like more than alcohol, it is free alcohol, and an open bar can quickly become a huge expense, especially the longer it remains open. Check with your venue to find out the alcohol options they have for you to choose from.
If something goes wrong on your wedding day, don't freak out! My cake fell over on the way to my ceremony, and both the best man and woman were unable to attend. In the end, those people are no longer in my life and my new best woman was a cake decorator who was able to fix the cake. It will always work out!
Think of an exotic location for your wedding to make it even more fun and memorable! You could hold your ceremony at a ranch and ride a white horse down the aisle, or have it at a wildlife preserve and have an animal bring the rings down the aisle. I wouldn't recommend choosing a turtle for that job, though!
If you are planning a wedding, consider keeping your guest list on the smaller side. You can save money by having not so many guests. You can show your small number of guests' greater details such as large gift baskets, large meals, and limo services. This can be paid for just by reducing your guest list.
Consider visiting a local park or museum to have your wedding photos taken. It's amazing to have a gorgeous background in your photographs, but sometimes your actual wedding location might not offer such a view. Contact your city's government office to see if you'll need a photography license for the location you choose.
Make sure that after your wedding you send thank-you notes to all of your guests for not only coming to your wedding but for the gifts that they gave to you. This will make them feel special and show that you appreciated them using their time to share your special moment.
If you're going to photograph a wedding, change up your style a few times. Look for angles you might not have shot from before to give the wedding album something unique and different to set it apart from the rest. Go up high or down load, shoot wide angles and tight.
Look around before committing to a photographer. You do not want to have someone taking wedding pictures that you are not pleased with. Look for online reviews to find great photographers.
Try to avoid being sick for your wedding! Up your intake of Vitamin C and eat only healthy items in the weeks leading up to the big day. Stay away from any foods that may cause stomach upset or gas as the last thing you want to do when you're standing at the front of the ceremony is be flatulent!
It is okay to let loose at your wedding reception. Many people take their wedding day too serious and do not remember it is supposed to be a joyous occasion. When this happens, they look back at their special day with unpleasant memories. Laugh with your guests, and dance to upbeat music.
Ensure that everyone coming to your destination wedding, knows exactly what to do and where to go when they get off the plane. Provide them with detailed instructions on how to get to the hotel and then, how to get from the hotel to your wedding location. They should also have help in heading home.
You do not have to be overwhelmed by the thought of planning your wedding once you use the tips you have just read. With the tips from above, you can handle planning your wedding and look forward to your big day.
