    Valentines Day potential Disaster

    So I thought I'd order the misses something for valentines day - up popped serenata flowers with free guarenteed delivery for the 14th, great I thought - ordered some bits, found a discount voucher-even better - paid and then saw on the invoice it is going to delivered by.............Yodel

    Do i cancel or hope for the best?

    Get your money back if it isn't on the 14th and get moonpig as a backup xD

    Personally, I'd cancel - Yodel are nothing but trouble.

    Why not pop to your local flower arrangers and have them sort it?

    email the supplier and make sure that they put "DELIVER" in the special instructions to the courier... you might stand a chance then.

    I decided to use moonpig for the first time last year for flowers and they were awful!! Flowers didnt turn up till 5.30 and half of them were dead and the rest didnt look like they would see out the day. Needless to say interflora will be used from now on!!

    My new gf doesnt which saves me a fortune this year!! She hates roses and told me not to bother with a card as she will put it in the bin! Got her a nice bunch of tulips (her fav) and got us tickets to see Russell Howard at the end of March in Brighton

    I cook me, the missus and the daughter a nice meal but that's all - I do all the cooking anyway it's just that we have 3 courses instead of one! Refuse to buy in to the whole guilt trip that restaurants/jewelers/card shops try to put you on for one meaningless day.

    Serenata were awful on both occasions I used them.
    I understand that they have a lot of flowers to deliver as they promise them on-the-day but the condition in which both mine arrived left much to be desired.
    And now they're using YODEL? Run. Run for the hills.
