Getting Married in June?
“Marry when June roses grow,
Over land and sea you’ll go.”
Choose Your Theme:
For a wedding in the sixth month of the year, you might consider a Sun theme to honor the summer solstice. For informal weddings, bridesmaids could wear sundresses and sun hats.
Arrange yellow blossoms in vases and hang Sun mobiles, sun catchers, and other fun-in-the-sun decorations. Include glass, crystal, and prisms that will catch the light.
Offer cupcakes decorated to look like sunflowers. You might also place sundials in various locations to add to the festive a¬¬tmosphere.
