There's no such thing as a June bride

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.

Burying the Bourbon | A Southern Tradition
Rachel and Scott

Occasionally I see posts from our brides and grooms where they have a shovel in one hand and a bottle of bourbon in the other.  They are carrying on the Southern tradition in the hopes to have perfect weather for their wedding day.  There are a few guidelines that you are supposed to follow. 

  • Bury an unopened bottle of bourbon (upside down) exactly one month before the wedding day
  • Towards the end of the night dig up the bottle and enjoy it with your guests 

I have to say burying it on the site of your wedding venue might reduce your deposit, so don't blame me!  Maybe you can just bury it in your backyard and hope for the best!

Heather Durham Photography had a great post recently on this same topic.  Love her pictures!
