Just why are June weddings so lucky and popular? Well it first of all gets its name - June from the Roman goddess Juno. She is the patroness of weddings and marriage. Said to bless all the weddings taking place this month - well we only just about made it this month! It is therefore the most favored month for weddings than any other in the Western world.
An ancient Roman proverb says"Prosperity to the man and happiness to the maid when married in June" Mmmmm maybe I should have married in June rather than September!!
Many of our wedding customs have been past down from ancient times. Some are just based on real symbolism and some of long forgotten traditions. These traditions vary from country to country and sometimes area and family traditions can vary.
