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.

Tips To Ensure Your Big Day Is Perfect
You are planning your big day. Tons of time and effort goes into this process and the end result had better be good. So how do you make that happen and still keep your sanity along the way? The answer is quite easy and that is to read along and we will provide some wedding planning tips that can really help anyone to make it to the big day.
Do not forget to learn about how you will handle tax reporting for your business. Reporting taxes for a business is much more complicated than filing taxes for yourself. You might need to hire a tax accountant to sort out what you have to do in the first year that you are filing as a business, just to make sure that it is done correctly.
If you are planning an outdoor wedding you will need to consider the possibility of bad weather. If you do not have a backup plan, this could ruin your wedding and inconvenience all of your guests who are attending. Always prepare for the worst on important occasions.
When the wedding has ended, you will most likely receive gifts from the people who have attended. Make sure that during this time, you and your spouse are together so that you can both show the appreciation that is deserved. Thank everyone regardless of what type of present they give you.
You should try to create a wedding that is extremely personal by having elements which encompass you, your fiance, and the relationship between you two. Think about your time together and find a theme which matches it.
An outdoor wedding has its own natural beauty but you should still check on the place where your wedding will be held right before your wedding. Check to make sure that the grass has been mowed, leaves have been raked, and it is clear of debris. If you notice something that you do not like, make sure it is taken care of before your wedding day.
For the woman who is about to get married, don't skimp on the dress. This is your day to shine, to look the most beautiful you have ever looked before, and to be decorated with unending compliments. So go buy that expensive dress you have always dreamed of wearing on your wedding day.
Skip having guests throw confetti at your wedding as it makes a mess and isn't good for the environment, nor will you like picking it out of your hair. Instead, give your guests a noisemaker with the date of your wedding and your names on it to take home as an inexpensive keepsake.
Make sure that you never plan your bachelor or bachelorette parties the day before the wedding. There may be a lot of drinking at these parties, and the last thing that you will want to do is ruin the day of your wedding because you are not fully functional. Have a calm day right before your wedding.
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.
Share your discounts on airline tickets with family and friends who will be attending your destination wedding. If you have Airmiles, see if you can help by purchasing tickets for your family with the reduction in cost thanks to those miles. Ask around with all attendees to see if they can pool their resources and get more discounts!
When picking out your wedding ring, make sure to get one you know you are going to like years down the line. Many people pick a random ring, and later decide that they do not like it. Also, if you are going to get matching bands, make sure both of you like them.
The time has come to plan your wedding. It is the biggest day of your life, and you're putting every drop of energy into the process. You just might lose your sanity along the way, right? Wrong! If you follow the tips we have provided, you can make it to your big day and keep your sanity intact. Take a deep breath and enjoy the ride!
