My anniversary is coming up soon... Really hoping to get some good advice on this! Because I always feel like I'm overpaying for flowers. Recommendations are very welcome! Replacement ideas also for flowers would be really cool :)

There are some online florist you can order from. But why not try something else beside flowers?
It will be able to last longer and will not seem too average pattern.
Maybe some nice chocolate from Dark Gallery, or some Rose Wine, or crystal
if you live near East Coast there are great flower shops on Sims Avenue 300m before Paya Lebar. Great selection of cut orchids at a good price.
you can try Xpress flowers!
I get my flowers from this carouseller: https://carousell.com/mumsworkshop
Very nice lady who does this to spend her retirement time. I got my bridal bouquet and car deco from her, and what she quoted me was half of what other people were quoting. Since then my hubby has been getting flowers from her for special occasions 😁
If you've a certain floral arrangement you want, just send her the picture, she'll let you know her quote.
If you've no particular flowers to buy, you can try https://www.happybunch.com.sg. They make specific combination of flowers daily, and only charge $35 including delivery.

Firstly, nv attempt wet market.
We had a discussion at seedly few months ago abt flowers for engagement surprise.
I checked out the flowers at wet market and really no quality to speak of.
The next cheapest flower u can get will be Sheng Siong but u will be easily exposed.
Another cheap alternative will be taobao but u really need to plan early and u risk damage in the shipping but if no damage, the flowers will be quality and quantity.
For local cheaper alternative for now is Carousell and the waiting time is shorter.
Hope my reply helps.

Florists are now very expensive. You can try happybunch. The cheapest bouquet is about 35sgd including delivery. Or you could head out to Cold Storage early in the morning and get their readily prepared bouquets from 10.80 onwards. Buy a roll of ribbons from daiso for 2sgd and you are ready to go! It's the thought that counts!! Happy Anniversary and many more to come. 😍
First time I bought was on online flower shop with delivery. A small bouquet cost me ard 70 with free delivery (very lucky!). The second time i bought was on Carousell. Cheaper and handmade flower soap. There is a delivery but usually it will be cheaper if the delivery address is near their location.

As long as it's not getting flowers on Valentine's day. It's terrible that day.
I usually Googled and found this today :
I'll check them out one by one online reading the Google review. Subsequently, in order to customize and personalize it. I tried getting from the market and do the mix and wrapping myself. Save the $ for meals or gift if you're more into DIY 😄👍
Happy shopping 😄
Oh! How about doing something different this year, like making a paper bouquet, there are lots of youtube tutorials on them or going for a flower/succulents arrangement class together?

I tried the enchanted tree once and found that the delivery is prompt and prices are ok 👌🏻 30 dollars with free delivery
Go for a vacation instead, buy something different every year like even a gold class movie ticket, or try a new sport/class together

Someolthing reasonable yet looks nice for 30 bucks. Variety changes everyday https://www.theenchantedtree.com.sg/30-daily-picks.html. Alternatively I'll buy from far east flora. Their online selection is actually rather reasonably priced, especially for sunflower bouquets
My friend started selling her own, and it's pretty damn good. Go and see for yourself! Very customisable too!
I ordered a wedding anniversary flower bouquet from Floralsingapore.com and they are having a gorgeous flower collection for wedding anniversaries. They are providing free message on the card. I forwarded my personalized message to my loved one. They did an awesome customer support.
