Recommended Posts

Hi all!

My fiancé & I will be celebrating our 1st year together on the 26th and I want to make it memorable for her even though I'm not physically there!

What online flower merchant can you vouch for that you have had a good experience with? There are so many and would rather get the opinions of you people first.

I searched the web and found a local Cebu florist who was quite reasonable, including delivering flowers 45 minutes outside of the city. It was cheaper than an online site, the flowers were excellent. If someone needs the name pm me and I'll look for it.
