“Oh, they say when you marry in June you’re a bride all your life,
and the bridegroom who marries in June gets a sweet-heart for a wife.
~ "June Bride", Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, 1954
Historically, June has always been a popular month for weddings perhaps because the month of June derives its name from Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage and protector of women in childbirth. It was thought that couples who married in June would be blessed with prosperity and happiness. The idea of June weddings also comes from the Celtic calendar. On the Cross-Quarter Day of Beltane, or May Day, young couples would pair off to court for 3 months and then be wed on the next Cross-Quarter Day (Lammas Day, August 1). Due to the impatience of youth, the waiting period was shortened to mid-June, thus ensuring the popularity of June weddings. This tartan is a replication taken from a plaid in the Kingussie Museum dated c. 1720 said to have been a wedding plaid.
