Gifting a tree

Some close relatives of mine are getting married this September, and I would like to gift them a weeping willow tree. They live in suburban Connecticut. I live in a different state, and unfortunately I have no ability to pick-up/deliver a tree while I'm visiting during their wedding weekend. I see that there are various online tree delivery stores, but I'm concerned about quality and hardiness. I don't want to pay $150 for something to be delivered that dies within weeks. Have you had success with this? Also, do you suggest waiting until the spring? I read that weeping willow trees can be successfully planted in either early fall or early spring.
