What made you choose June?

Does anyone remember that movie Seven Brides for Seven Brothers?  The girls in that movie sing "For they say when you marry in June, you will always be a bride."  Ever since I saw that movie when I was really young (8 year old or something) I told my mom that I was going to be a June bride! 


So when the FI proposed there was no question!  June it was going to be!  Plus I don't know about anyone else here, but I have been to very few June weddings.  I can't even keep track of how many people have weddings the last weekend of July and the first weekend of August!  So many! 


So why did you choose June?

We picked June because it's the only spring/summer month that has the 18th on a Sat. Number 18 is my fiance's fav number so we just had to pick it!

June 18 for me, too! We want to have an outdoor wedding, and June is really the only month with fair weather where we live. June is when all the flowers start blooming and it's not too hot outside and the chance of rain is slim.

I just found out that June 25th is the same day my grandfather and grandmother got married. I never meet my grandmother so to find that out means so much to me!

Multiple reasons:


We had originally picked Oct 8, 2011 for our date, but I recently started nursing school and did not want to try to juggle school and a wedding at the same time, so we moved our wedding to June 2011.  Unfortunately I just found out that we will be required to take a summer course next year, so I will be in school regardless.  And we cannot change the date now (nor do I want to) because we've already booked our reception venue. Just my luck, lol. 


We also picked early June because it's halfway between our birthdays.  I'm May 6 and Patrick is June 29.


June 4, 2011 because its the only weekend in June in NH that's not insanely busy (bike week, NASCAR, etc...) which will make travel and hotel booking much easier for our guests.


No one seems to get married in June anymore - Aug/Sept/Oct seem to be the big months now (and yeah I know, I wanted an Oct wedding at first too, but now I'm glad we going with June).  I went to a bridal show in January and one of the vendors said how I was the first June bride to come through - everyone else was Sept or Oct.  So I thought we'd have more luck securing vendors.

Nic--we are wedding day twins :) I am also on the 25th! Like thefuturemrsbruni, I love the sound of it: June 25th, 2011. Nice ring to it :D


We picked June because I'm a teacher, and a lot of my friends are teachers, so it would make sense to pick a summer date so everyone can come celebrate. Also I've just always thought a summer wedding would be great for an outdoor wedding--the wedding is slightly more predictable, I guess. I know it'll be hot but hopefully it won't rain!

We picked June because he proposed June 12 and we wanted to keep the wedding within this month...it's also the only down time we have before the seasons start as a college cheer & dance coordinator and him as a strength coach.

We picked June because it would give me about a month after graduation to prepare for the wedding. It would also give me about a month after the marriage to get settled as a wife! Plus the 19th was father's day and we got extra discounts.

My parents moved out of the country right before I got engaged so timing became tricky. my sister is graduating college the weekend of the 11th. I knew my parents would be back in the states for that and I didn't want to have to make them pay thousands of dollars extra to fly more than once so we picked the weekend of the 17th. I picked friday instead of saturday because I wanted to be different.
