Statistics reveal that June is the most popular month for weddings, and thus it has been dubbed National Wedding Month. Across much of the United States, June provides the perfect weather for weddings, but there are also some possible historical reasons for a couple’s tendency to choose June as their special month. Although here in Albuquerque June may be a bit warm, this month still gives us a great opportunity to talk about weddings and anniversary flowers. No matter which month you choose to tie the knot, you can be assured that Peoples Flowers will provide the most exceptional wedding flowers – as well as anniversary flowers as your life together progresses.Looking back through human history, there are two traditions that date back to ancient times that may have influenced the popularity of June weddings. In ancient Rome, nearly every wedding took place in June, a month named after the goddess Juno. This particular deity was worshiped for her protection of women, especially brides and new mothers and it was considered fortuitous to be married under her care. And in Celtic cultures, it was customary for couples to be paired on May Day (May 1) and then get married exactly 3 months later. However, when impatient youth were finding it difficult to wait so long, the tradition was amended to allow for weddings in mid-June. Eventually, most weddings in these western European cultures took place in June and it was considered the norm.
With the popularity of June weddings, it only makes sense that there are quite a few June anniversaries as well! Whether the carnation for your first anniversary, the daisy for your 5th, the daffodil for your 10th, or the rose for your 15th, you can trust the professional floral designers at Peoples Flowers to create an arrangement featuring the anniversary flowers that will say “I’d marry you again today!”.
