June Weddings

A June Calendar

Are June weddings still a thing? In years past, June was the most popular month for weddings. The month was actually named for the goddess Juno, who is associated with fertility. In the Middle Ages bathing was not a regular activity and people may have bathed only a few times during the year. Peasants only bathed once a year in late spring when it was warm enough outside to get wet and not freeze one’s self. That made June a good time to be wed so that everyone smelled their best on the special day. Who knew, and all this time I thought June was chosen for its wildflowers and cooler weather than late summer. So get married in June, everyone will smell nice!
