The Reason June Is A Popular Month For Weddings

June has long been the month that is most associated with getting married. Depending on where you live and what the weather is like there, this may or may not be the most convenient for you. Since every person has varying opinions on when the best time to get married is, we wondered why June came to be known as the wedding month. After a little research, WhereBridesGo.com found out these interesting facts for you. 


The Reasons For June Weddings
The Roman goddess Juno is the protector of women, and she is also known as the goddess of childbirth and marriage. Since June is named after the goddess of marriage, it seems like the perfect month to tie the knot. People used to believe that getting married in this particular month brought extra prosperity and happiness to the newlyweds. 

Another reason we found that June was a very popular month to get married in the past, before indoor plumbing, was because people used to only bathe once a year! Baths took place in May once the weather began warming up after a season of wearing heavy winter clothing. Those getting married were anxious to do it in June because they still smelled fresher than they would the rest of the year! All of the wonderful aromatic flowers blooming that time of year also helped to mask unwanted body odors.  

One more reason that June weddings were convenient in the past is due to the planting schedule of farmers. Many families relied on the crops for their livelihood. A June wedding made it more likely that a post-wedding pregnancy wouldn't get in the way of the wife helping with the year's harvest. The pregnancy would be early enough in the fall that she could help with planting, and a spring birth meant that she would be recovered and ready to help again when is was time to harvest the new crops. 


Make Your Wedding Beautiful
There's a famous line from the 1954 musical, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, that goes, "Oh, they say when you marry in June, you're a bride all your life; and the bridegroom who marries in June gets a sweetheart for a wife." That makes it sound intriguing, don't you think?

Military Weddings

You've decided to have a military wedding—complete with all the pomp and circumstance such a formal affair entails. Here some tips on planning the wedding of your dreams that still conforms to longstanding military tradition and protocol.

Wedding Attire
The main difference between a military wedding and a civilian wedding is that the bride and/or groom will be in uniform. An officer or enlisted personnel in the bridal party wears uniforms that comply with the formality of the wedding and seasonal uniform regulations. For commissioned officers, the evening or mess dress uniform is equivalent to the civilian black tie. Commissioned officers who elect to wear a sword or saber with their uniform should stand to the left of the bride so as to protect her from the blade.

For enlisted personnel, dress blues or Army greens should be worn. Remember, never wear a boutonnière with a military uniform. Military ribbons or medals are the only adornments permitted on the uniform.
