Default Who does Sunday delivery for flowers/balloons/gifts?

Hi,

I'm getting married abroad but my mum can't make it due to poor health. I'd like to send her flowers/balloons/similar on the day of the wedding but can't seem to find anyone that does Sunday deliveries (it's this Sunday).

Help!

Thanks.

I though Interflora did Sunday deliveries?

Or don't you know somebody who lives near her who can deliver a bunch to her on the day

By the way, good luck on Sunday - best wishes to you and your OH

Happy wedding day!

I'd ring round florists local to my mum and find out who's open on Sundays and ask them for deliveries, as a one off, and see what they say.

My niece is a floral designer, absolutely fantastic and very reasonable, in the Sheffield area, she will deliver locally on a sunday for you, or I am in Doncaster and would also be glad to help. Just PM me if we are in the right area for you.

Good luck with the wedding, and congratulations to you both

Wow what a lot of replies, thank you!

My mum's postcode is TF1 in the Midlands if this helps. I thought I'd looked everywhere but haven't tried the supermarkets so thank you for that suggestion too, I'll have a look at those now...

I don't mind paying a premium for Sunday delivery but I didn't realise it was almost impossible to get anywhere.

boots-babe,

I live approx 50 miles away but would be very willing to do this for you if you can't find anybody else to help.
I could get a lovely bunch made up locally on the Saturday and drive down to be with her at about 2.30pm if you wouldn't mind just reimbursing my petrol money.
I would love to help you out.

I own a flower shop, if I'd been anywhere near I would have done it for you.

I don't generally advocate using Teleflorist or Interflora, but on this occasion they may be able to help you. Teleflorist keep our opening times on their database so may be able to help. I assume you have tried your local florists, we can be an accomodating bunch!!
