Good Morning ! Did you know that June is the most popular month to get married ? Approximately 10.8% of couples get married in the month of June; the largest percentage. This is followed by August at 10.2%, May at 9.8% and July at 9.7%.
The goddess Juno (for whom June is named) was the protector of women in all aspects of life, but especially in marriage and childbearing, so a wedding in Juno’s month was considered most auspicious.
Historical Fact: The reasons are many, starting with the most practical of all: If a bride married in June, she was more likely to give birth to her first child in early spring, giving her plenty of time to recover before the fall harvest.
