Being the wedding industry, we have to remember that not everyone lives and breathes weddings and events like we do. Sometimes we have moms of the brides that haven't planned a wedding in over 20 years.
A couple of months ago, I was chatting with a MOB that had called about using us for their wedding videography. The bride was getting married in May of this year. After telling the mom that we were not available, she made a comment that I had not heard before. She said, "I guess there is no such thing as a June bride anymore." Although I was raised in the South, I don't know a lot of the typical Southern phrases. So I consulted Google.
According to folklore, "The goddess Juno 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." Well there you go.
Wedding season, here in the South, can range from March until October, and many brides choose the cooler months to have a Winter Wonderland-themed wedding. We don't find that June is the only month that people want to get married. Some months are so busy you forget to eat (almost!). To get the pick of the vendors you want, plan on booking them a year out. It's not always necessary, but remember June is not the only month that brides want to get married.
