Are flowers that important to you? I’d just let it be.

Personally, I’m not a fan of flowers. They don’t last long anyways and I feel it’s a waste of money – and besides, my cat eats them and pukes them up anyways LOL

@definitelymaybe:  Tell him you just found out about it and you think it’s cute! I tell my Fiance about things I discover and like all the time. I don’t think he’d think I was pushing for something just because it’s retail. 🙂

Pick up a little something for him from the flower shop! If he’s not a fan of flowers, maybe a little plant or even just a card. Then you can tell him where it came from 🙂

Can you go pick up a brochure or something from them and put it in the mailbox for him to see

I’d say, “oh cool, I just learned there was a nice flower shop near my work!”  If he has access to any internet, he can find out the address.

Sticking a brochure in the mail would be an idea! They could probably mail one too.

Since your just starting planning, could you make him a list of important phone numbers for the wedding (pastor, Maid/Matron of Honor, MOB, caterer) and add in the floral shop?

I never check brochures that come in the mail, plus if it’s 45 min away a) it’s weird that they’d send one so far, and b) he might not clue in to the location.

I’d either just mention “hey – guess what i discovered on lunch today!” and possibly throw in “it’s super cute/something to keep in mind next time you feel like sending me flowers” 

Or if you really like the brochure idea, I’d bring it home in your purse and say they dropped some by your office or a coworker had brought some extras in after stopping by the store. Make it more of a “I happened to grab one to glance at later for curiosity’s sake”. It does seem  like more work than it’s worth though.

Go and buy some flowers for yourself & bring them (and the shop!) to his attention!

I don’t understand the need to be subtle. I’d just tell him outright, “You know how you said there were no florists around here. Well I’ve discovered this one. Just for future reference <grin>.”

You say, “Hey Fred, I drove by a nice looking flower shop near my work.  I bet they deliver.  Want the number?”

Why be so passive and indirect?

Yeah, I personally would just say there’s a flower shop near your work that has really nice flowers and delivers, and you’d like him to get you flowers from there next time he does.

Here’s how it would go for us:

Me: Found a flower shop near my work with the most beautiful flowers. Hint, hint. (cough) Hint. (Insert winky face)

Him: Ok. I got your “hint.” 


They’re just flowers, not erectile dysfunction. No need to be so delicate.
