Wedding flower business is usually busy in spring and early summer season. And it is not busy during the winter season. However funeral related business is usually busy when it is cold. Old people often pass away in the winter when wedding business is slow. This means funeral flower business is better stabilized than wedding flower business. And when wedding flower business is slow in the winter, funeral flower business can help compensate the loss of wedding flower business.
