One of the biggest trends in flower delivery is the introduction of smart vending machines. Some call these machines “Unmanned Retail,” and are slowly gaining consumer acceptance. Although they may only make up a small portion of retail sales, these machines offer bouquets 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Some even offer same-day delivery.
Dry flowers have long been popular, but recently they’ve gained a reputation as the eco-friendly, practical, and beautiful alternative to fresh flowers. They’re also more affordable than fresh flowers, and they’re durable enough to last for years. Dried flowers are replacing imported and fresh blooms because of their versatility and beautiful sun-bleached appearance.
Another trend that’s set to stay in style for the next five years is the mix of materials and textures in floral arrangements. In addition to neutral colors, many couples now enjoy mixing and matching different types of blooms in their floral arrangements. For example, couples are willing to consider flowers that have a textured look rather than just roses. Greenery and floral installations are also gaining popularity. These changes in the floral industry mean that bouquets are going to look and feel more personal than they do today.
Teleflora has been in the business for eighty years and offers a huge variety of flowers and bouquets. They even allow you to customize the type of flower you want to use. They also offer same-day delivery for most orders. The service also sells zen and succulent arrangements. Another cool feature is their deal of the day and their unique arrangements, created by local florists.
