It's June, and people are getting married, and we here at Peoples Flower Shops are 100% here for it.
More people get married this month than any other during the year, and it's not hard to see why. It's warm but not too warm. Precipitation lightens up. Vacations are a go, and the kids are home from school. Everything points the way to celebrations worth traveling for as well as worth having. Who doesn't want the sun to shine on the most important day of their lives? Where there are weddings, there are anniversaries, and while we provide the petals for both weddings and the commemoration of them, we want to showcase the work we do for the latter category.
