Choosing flowers for your wedding is exciting; there are so many amazing and wonderful options for you! All those options, however, can be a bit overwhelming. The team at Shelley's Flowers is always ready to help you make your floral decisions. One way to focus your choices is to include seasonal flowers.
If you are looking for something different for your wedding, why not consider a winter celebration? Most wedding venues (Favorite Maine Wedding Venues) are open year-round, and since winter is the off-season, your venue of choice, whether it be an inn, a church, or a barn, will likely be easier to book. Additionally, you may be able to save some money because you will be getting off-season rates.
