We HEAR you. And there is NO shame in being a curtain-twitcher while waiting on your flowers. It's exciting!
When shipping FedEx, we always roll with Overnight Priority, which typically means the flowers will be delivered:
- By noon in all major cities. POP DAT MID MORNING BUBBLY!
- Later on in the afternoon if you live in an area with more possums than people.
Unfortunately, we cannot control FedEx delays. And if they miss their promised deadline, they do not refund as they always claim "weather-related delays." Here's more info on FedEx's (sometimes bullshit) Delivery Time Explanations.
If your flowers are being shipped with Air Cargo instead of FedEx there can be a much broader delivery window. However, they are usually delivered much earlier than FedEx. With air cargo your shipment is taken to the airport cargo station in the morning and loaded onto a passenger plane. The shipment can typically arrive the very same day or late that night. Your flowers are held in a cool location – oftentimes a cooler – where they wait for you to pick it up the following day. While a delay is always possible it is very rare when shipping cargo, and often a non-issue due to the fact the flowers are kept in coolers rather than hot FedEx warehouses.
If you are concerned about waiting for your delivery or missing it entirely, you can have your flowers shipped to the nearest FedEx Station to hold for pickup.
