The June Bride Wears Vintage

June has always been the most popular month for weddings. Here are a few ideas of why this month is so popular. . .

The month of June derives its name from Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage. It was thought that couples who married in June would be blessed with prosperity and happiness.

The 1948 movie “June Bride,” starring Bette Davis and Robert Montgomery, reinforced the connection of weddings and the month of June.

The 1954 musical “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” continued to reinforce this tradition with the song “June bride.”  Check out the lyrics below!

“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.
Winter weddings can be gay like a Christmas holiday,
but the JUNE BRIDE hears the song of a spring that lasts all summer long.
By the light of the silvery moon, home you ride side by side 
7 Brides with the echo of Mendelssohn's tune in your hearts as you ride.
For they say when you marry in June you will always be a bride.”

-- “June Bride” from the movie “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers”

A lovely post and marvelous assemblage of vintage wedding apparel, accessories, and decor Diane. The most memorable in that of a vintage themed wedding are the memories of the lovely bride and the beautiful ensemble she wears. From Edwardian to Victorian to the mod fashion of the 1970's, nothing adds to the brides gown as do the accessories she wears about her head, be it the stunning vintage earrings, the always talked about vail and train, but most arguable of all, a truly lovely elegant, but simplistic hairpiece. Ahh yes, the place settings and decor is soon forgotten, but the bride and hairpiece, forever etched in memory.
