Monday Morning Musing: June Brides

I can’t resist.  It’s June and that, traditionally, means the height of the wedding season.  (For those of you who don’t know, my shop, The Menagerie, has a traditional bridalregistry.  We try to make each bride feel like a princess because, we believe, service like that still matters!)

Even though times have changed and brides now marry in almost equal numbers year-round, I wanted to give you some (I think) funny quotes on what it means to marry in June.  Maybe these are why June used to be so popular?

(FYI, the origin of these quotes is unknown.  Most think they are oral tradition, handed down from mother to daughter for generations.)

“Married in month of roses June, life will be one long honeymoon.”

“A June bride will be impetuous, and generous.”

“Marry when the June roses grow, over land and sea you’ll go.”
