    What’s the deal with June Brides?


    Many women dream of the perfect wedding: the finest wedding dress, the lovely bouquet, the man of their dreams waiting at the altar, an exchange of vows while the couple fits their diamond wedding rings at each other, the fireworks-filled kiss that ends the ceremony, and the memorable reception and honeymoon that follows afterward. For some, the time of the marriage did not matter as long as it was a picture-perfect event. To others, however, it is not a perfect wedding if it is not a June Bride wedding.

    The June bride tradition is one of the many quirks of marriages around the world, where women choose to set their wedding dates on any date in June. What started this interesting tradition? Why is it such a popular thing for soon-to-wed couples?


    Do as Romans do

    Do as Romans do

    One ofthe more accepted origins of the June Bride tradition is its link to the ancient Romans. The name ‘June’ can be attributed to Juno, the Roman goddess of marriages and conception. The Romans celebrated her feast day on the sixth month, which they eventually named after her.


    ·        The ancient Roman concept of a June Bride wasn’t just a religious tradition; it was also a practical option. Harvest time fell on the sixth month, and as such, those who were betrothed and conceived children in June could still help out in the fields without worrying about adverse consequences to the child.


    ·        The Roman mindset wasn’t just limited for the current year. Marriages and conceptions were made in June to ensure that the bride can recover from her birthing pains quick enough to be back in the fields next year.


    Back to the Middle Ages

    Back to the Middle Ages

    The Medieval period carried with it many traditions and beliefs that would eventually be incorporated into modern concept of marriages. It was during this time that the concept of wedding rings as they are known today was set in stone by the Church itself. It also carries on some traditions from the Period of Antiquity.

    ·        June was believed to be the time when feudal communities came out of their homes to partake in a cleansing bath after a brutally long winter. These kinds of situations are perfect times for people to meet up and get to know each other better, which can lead to a possible betrothal.


    ·        The old habit of ‘conceiving during the harvest’ was still present in the medieval period as a result of the focus on agriculture in the feudal manors. This gets another consideration during the current time period because workers who do not participate in the work often do not get their share of the harvest.

    Summertime lovin’

    Summertime lovin

    This one isn’t exactly a historical thing, but gets some focus for its connection to June brides. In the Northern Hemisphere, June is summer season, and the idea of sun, sand, and sparkling champagne have inspired a lot of couples to schedule their nuptials around this time.


    ·        Traditionally, summer is a time of convenience for couples who have work. They can easily ask for extended leaves due the host of holidays and special occasions that happen around this time.


    ·        Surprisingly, there are tropical destinations that are off-season during the June August stretch, which make them popular spots to hold June weddings. This may be attributed to the on-again, off-again storms that can affect these areas.


    June brides attract quite the buzz among marriage planners, jewellers, and wedding service providers. It is one of those dreamy ideas that many women want to experience for themselves. How about you? What is YOUR dream wedding experience?
