*FLORAL MARKET NOTICE*
A Notice to Our Valued Customers on the Conditions Impacting the Floral Market
Oviedo Florist believes in honesty and transparency in our communication with our customers. We love our community and we strive to serve you to the best of our ability!
The current climate of the market for flowers necessitates that we make some changes to our pricing and policies. We want to be up front and clear about these changes as much as possible. Our flowers are coming to us at a much higher cost than usual. Most varieties of flowers have experienced a significant price increase recently, especially our most popular flowers: lilies, roses, carnations, etc. Contributing factors to this volatile and competitive climate include the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic's impact on growers and on shipping rates around the world. Roses are especially hard-hit. They are much more scarcely available than they usually are and their cost is increasing.
Due to these conditions, the price of our arrangements may be higher than usual. We are anticipating pricing to return to normal in the near future and will respond appropriately to further changes in the market. We pledge to keep you posted.
Due to these conditions, substitutions may be necessary at a higher rate than as is typical, as certain flowers are very difficult to obtain at the present. This is especially critical with arrangements including roses. Note: any substitutions made to an arrangement at Oviedo Florist will be made with the integrity of the design in mind and will be made to the same or greater value. Our full substitution poilcy can be viewed below on this page.
It is our goal to provide the best quality flowers and highest caliber design to our customers. We will continue to, with your amazing and valued support, bring the joy of flowers to Oviedo and Central Florida. Thank you for your understanding and continued patronage!

Oviedo Florist is proud to offer fresh floral designs, beautiful gifts, and inspired wedding flowers - serving Oviedo and a wide surrounding area with personalized customer service since 1969. In 2019, we will be celebrating 50 years since we first opened our doors in old downtown, making us officially the oldest florist in Oviedo. Our shop has stood the test of time and has played a role in countless cherished moments. Though we have changed our location three times over the years – thanks to our growing business and expanding community – our passion for excellent florals has always endured. Since the beginning, Oviedo Florist has been strongly driven and solely advertised through word-of-mouth, referrals, and maintaining lasting relationships with our customers. Our flowers are a longstanding tradition with families, churches, businesses, and schools around Seminole County and beyond; generations of Oviedans have put their trust in us. Our dedication to exceptional flowers is one of the many reasons we have remained a Top 500 or Top 1000 Teleflora Shop since 2000 of some 23,000 Teleflora shops worldwide. We are also able to send and receive floral arrangements around the country through our trusted wire service. If you’re sending flowers to a loved one in the Oviedo area from out of town, we are happy to work with your local Teleflora or Flower Shop Network florist to coordinate your order! Why use us? Our values guide us in everything we do. Here’s why you can trust Oviedo Florist to give you only the very best:
Our Mission Statement is “to create and deliver delightful floral arrangements and gifts.”
We promise you our very best, from taking your order to the final delivery. We take pride in every arrangement that leaves our shop bearing the Oviedo Florist name. Handling fresh, perishable product is a challenge, but our experienced team always rises to the occasion. We start early and stay late to meet our commitments. We go to extraordinary lengths to create original, thoughtful, and creative designs to offer. We double check, get a second opinion, and ask questions to exceed expectations. We strive to offer only the highest quality florals and stand behind this promise to you. We have a state-of-the-art Point of Sales system, affectionately called "Dove". Having an efficient Point of Sales system means we are able to intake and manage your order electronically. This includes developing an electronic record of your order that gets distributed to our staff for work, processing payment securely, maintaining a secure data base for the next time you order, electronically managing deliveries to ensure on-time deliveries, and so much more. Security of your personal data is one of our topmost concerns! Note: We never share your personal information with any other person or business except to conduct Teleflora business, including processing orders with other florists in the Teleflora network. Teleflora is committed to ensuring its data networks are secure.
The base of our business is fantastic flowers and thoughtful arrangements, but our service really brings the Oviedo Florist experience together. We have four expert floral designers who bring over 75 years of combined experience.Laurie specializes in wedding flowers. Her weddings range from modern and fashion forward to romantic and rustic to classic with vintage charm.Vickie, our assistant manager, works in a variety of areas, including designing weeklyorders and business-to-business marketing. Her work is classic, precise, and delicate.Christy manages our line of gift baskets and arrangements. She enjoys creating arrangements that are modern, funky, and original. Marlene is our lead floral consultant and manager. She takes on wedding work, daily arrangements, and creating new designs. Our sales associates, Linda and Charlene, are knowledgeable, courteous, and dependable. They take each and every customer’s needs to heart and offer suggestions to give you the flowers you are looking for. Our drivers, Greg and Ford, add that final special touch to ensure your order gets the best possible impact upon delivery.
Our flowers are second to none. We pride ourselves on the quality and freshness of our blooms, as we have specialized processing for every variety of flower. Here’s how we maintain our top-notch flowers: We receive fresh flowers daily! Every day, flowers are shipped in to us from around the country and the world. Certain flowers, such as roses, require conditioning over a few days. Our staff is extremely knowledgeable on the preferences and needs of every flower we carry, so you can rest assured that the flowers used in our arrangements are in prime condition. Oviedo Florist calls a 3,000 square foot, stand-alone building home. We have ample space to store inventory and refrigerate florals. We buy in bulk, which lowers costs - savings we pass to you. Additionally, we buy quality items (many which have minimum order levels) - quality we also pass to you. We have three coolers with well over 500 square feet of refrigerated space. The industry standard is 32 square feet. More refrigeration means more flowers. We strive to offer the greatest selection of fresh flowers at the lowest prices, and our building makes it all possible! We never charge a service or handling fee, unlike many others in the industry. We strive to make sure your dollars are put in to the flowers you send, as it should be!
Oviedo Florist brings weddings from dream, to concept, to reality! We provide inspired floral designs, knowledgeable guidance, humble experience, and gracious service to our brides-to-be. We offer a wide selection of bridal bouquets, wedding ceremony flowers, floral cake decorations, and centerpieces to fit any budget. With years of experience and generations of brides, Oviedo Florist arranges the very best in wedding flowers. For more information, visit www.oviedofloristweddings.com
We treat sympathy flowers with great honor and dignity.We know the loss of a loved one is a very difficult time and we wish to do all we can to ease the burden. Flowers are meant to provide comfort to reduce that hardship. Our policy is to deliver within the hour preceding the time requested. Most funeral directors want flowers delivered one hour prior to a service. We deliver within one hour of that time as a rule and policywith very few exceptions. Though we are closed for general business on Sundays, we deliver flowers for Sunday services on Sunday (unless expressly told not to). Others will deliver Sunday orders on Saturday or even Friday – a practice we avoid at all costs. Within 24 hours, the small amount of water contained in the sympathy arrangement’s floral foam is dry and flowers begin to wilt. Also, heat expedites wilting. Thus, prompt delivery to funerals is an aspect we pay close attention to. When you lose a loved one, the last thing you want to have to do is fret about the flowers. Trust Oviedo Florist to make sure the arrangement honors your loved one and is there on time and as fresh as possible!
