Under such constraints, we substitute perishable items with similar items from an alternate source. However non-perishable items are not substituted without your prior authorisation. For flower bouquets, we may substitute the color / flower due to it's seasonal nature, however the bouquet style will not be altered. In case of a restaurant order, if an item is not available at your preferred restaurant, we will try to deliver the same item form an alternate restaurant.
