Wedding bells will be ringing every Sunday; and wedding invitations from your friends, relatives, or from yourself are already coming to your doorstep because it's June!
June is the most popular month for couples to marry. Why June? It is because "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," according to Almanac.com.
Another idea why weddings usually takes place in June came from the Celtic calendar wherein young couples were often "paired off" on Cross-Quarter Day of Beltane on May 1. These couples would date for a few months and then tie the knot on the next Cross-Quarter Day which is on August 1. Since most young Celt couples cannot wait any longer to tie the knot on August, they shortened the time and made it on June instead, according to KiwiReport.com.
Throughout the years, wedding traditions have either been preserved or changed. One of the things that did not change much is the gifts given by the couples. These gifts are usually given to the guests and to the wedding entourage as a sign of their gratitude to them being part of the couple's joyous day. Nowadays, most couples would resort to souvenirs or giveaways that are good-buys, sustainable, and more personalized.
