Brides of June

We are now in the middle of June, a peak for wedding season and there’s a lot to do this year.

June is a popular month to get married in, mainly because of the nice weather and availiability for people to travel but this tradition goes way back.

The month -June-  is named after the roman goddess Juno, she was the goddess of women, particularly married women. Serving as a guardian to women she oversaw all aspects of a woman’s life, childbirth, and marriage being the primary areas of concern.

In roman belief getting married in June would consequently bring good fortune and would be a symbol of the perfect season to concieve a child.

It also has to do with nature, because there is a wide variety of flowers during this time of the year.
