June Bride, You'll Always Be A Bride You've probably wondered why all the superstitious hype and booked wedding venues during that time. The name June is derived from the Roman goddess of marriage, Juno. Families believed that when a couple married in June, they would be blessed with happiness forever. Many sources say that the June bride tradition began in ancient Roman times.
The month of June is named after the Roman goddess Juno. Juno, wife of Jupiter, was not only thought of in relation to female vitality, fertility and considered herself a protector of Roman women, but she was also considered the equivalent of Hera, the Greek goddess of love and marriage. June was traditionally the most popular month to get married, and it's still very common. Why? The goddess Juno (after whom June is named) was the protector of women in all aspects of life, but especially in marriage and motherhood, so a wedding in the month of Juno was considered very auspicious.
Approximately 10.8% of couples get married in the month of June, the highest percentage. It is followed by August with 10.2%, May with 9.8% and July with 9.7%. If you really want to stand out from the crowd, you can get married in the least popular month for weddings, which is January with 4.7%.
