“🎶 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 been a popular month for weddings! June takes its name from the Roman Juno, goddess of marriage and a protector of women in childbirth, and couples who married in this month were believed to be blessed with prosperity and happiness. June weddings were also considered auspicious in the ancient 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 Lammas Day, August. This overlong waiting period was eventually shortened to mid-June, establishing a tradition of June weddings. This tartan is a replica taken from an article from the Kingussie Museum dated c. 1720 said to have been a wedding plaid!
