Wedding History

June is traditionally the most popular month to have a wedding. The custom dates back more than 2,000 years to when the ancient Romans named the month after their goddess of marriage and childbirth, Juno. It was thought that happiness and prosperity would come to those who wed during her month.

Romans also preferred June weddings for more practical reasons. By this time, the local wet season had ended in most places, so celebrants could usually rely on dry, comfortable weather—a fact for which the bride, whose intricate nuptial hairdo featured six locks wreathed in blossoms, must have been especially thankful.

Getting married in June meant that the first child would most likely be born during the following spring, instead of in the dead of winter when times were lean. Plus, a spring childbirth wouldn’t interfere with the busy fall harvest.

Today, couples often do as the Romans did and choose a June wedding. Not only is the weather fairly predictable, but also the days are long, the festive aroma of flowers fills the air, and many schools and colleges are out of session, making it easier for families to attend the event—which are all practical reasons, too.

Wedding Flowers, Cakes, and Customs

Make a unique statement by choosing which customs to include and which to leave in the past. Create a bouquet of flowers which hold symbolic meaning. See our articles:

I was originally getting

By Raquel Munoz

I was originally getting married April 4th, 2015, but due to our venue being unavailable on that day, we changed it to April 5th. I actually purchased the farmers almanac to see what the weather is on that day, and it says that for the Southeast, from April 5-9, it is rainy then sunny. What does that mean?? Does it mean it will rain everyday, then get sunny later on each day? OR will it rain all day for the 5th and 6th, and then get sunny as it gets closer to the 9th?
I'm confused! Please let me know. Thanks

By kellybailey

Wow! this seems to be a complete wedding advice. We got married in Winter little before X'Mas and i think there was a full moon on our wedding night. that may be the reason for our happy wedding relationship till now which is what ancient Greeks believed. But if i had to choose a another wedding occasion, i would definitely vote for romantic beach wedding. I think it will be the most romantic wedding plan for anyone.

By Amy Nieskens

I loved reading the Wedding Folklore page. Who would've thought that seeing a black cat on your wedding day is a good omen? Also, I'm really into the symbolism of certain types of flowers, I want my bouquet to be both beautiful and meaningful, so marigolds will make the cut. Thanks for the tips!
