    I've already brought flower for my wife 1 week before the Vday.
    Like it cost much more cheaper to buy on the very actual day.

    hahahah...then you better have a big budget ready hor. But ifrst make sure you give to the right mm that really has no b/f. Wait she waiting for her boi boi and you come just minutes before he does and he see you give her flowers.. heheh... Valentine not a good time to be spent in an ambulance and hospital when he is finish with you heheh....

    why not just buy really nice looking fakes and use them as props to shot them and then say you give them copies of the print via email heh.

    You wont get cheap roses on V day itself.
    This is like asking where to buy cheap bar-kuah during CNY.

    However, after CNY eve, those CNY flowers are dirt cheap.
    So maybe you can try right after V Day midnight, who knows?
    those sellers just want to get their costs back from whatever balance since they would had sold most of them in the day?

    If I am not wrong, roses are cheaper after 10pm... correct me... unless you might be thinking of doing a night shoot? There will be sellers trying to clear their roses are a low rate.

    get fake ones, those that won't look too obvious its fake in the photo.
    sure no one dare to give fake roses to their darling - that's asking for a beating
    so unlikely price hike on Vday

    just go and ask any florists, I think they will give a similar answer:

    "if you want today you can wait long long, tomorrow you come early maybe I can sell it to you cheap cheap."
