If you’ve ever tried planning a wedding ceremony, then you know you have to book everything well in advance—especially if you want to hold the event in June. That’s because June is the most popular wedding month by far, and is the time when brides all over the country slip on their designer engagement rings, don their white gowns, and take that long dreamed of trip down the aisle to their waiting groom. Many people think that June weddings are a somewhat modern phenomenon, much like wearing diamond solitaire engagement rings or tossing the bridal bouquet, but this tradition actually dates way back to ancient times. The month of June is named after the Roman goddess Juno, and since her domain included weddings, a logical connection was born. Let’s take a look at other reasons why this month has been favored above all others when tying the knot: • Getting married in June was thought to secure Juno’s blessings for happiness and prosperity • June weddings solved the practical matter of ensuring the bride would give birth to her first child the following spring and recover in time to help with the fall harvest • Warmer weather meant people could take their annual baths and be fresh and clean for their wedding day • April, September, October, November, and December were also popular because they didn’t interfere with harvest time; May, however, was considered unlucky • In the southern part of the U.S., June is when floral favorites such as jasmine and camellias are in bloom Whether you desire to get married in June or you prefer a different month altogether, Amoro wants to be part of your big day.
