June Bride: Are you?

Getting married in June? Yes, we did! ... 4 years ago which makes me one of the June Brides... :-)

I know you heard a lot about the famous tag line June Bride but have you wonder what it mean. The meaning of the word is simple. When you are married in June, you are called June Bride. In the United States, June is a beautiful month. It is the start of the summer so it isn't very hot yet. It is also the time of the year when beautiful flowers fully bloom. June is a great time to get married outside, so if you want garden wedding, farm wedding or beach wedding this month is perfect for you. I think these are some of the reasons why June is a famous month for weddings.

In our case, hubby and I initially plan to have our wedding on the 8th of August (08/08) but due to some changes in the immigration law then we have to rush and wed in June to make sure we will be able to submit our paperwork before the immigration fees increases. You may wonder why I want to get married on August 8. I believe getting married on the 8th day of the 8th month of the year denotes luck (Chinese belief). However, getting married on the 8th of the 6th month of the year is also commendable because in Chinese belief both number 6 and 8 have good association.

Soon we are going to celebrate our anniversary. Sure, time goes by fast. I can still picture myself in my white wedding dress which I picked in the last minute among the 3 wedding dresses that I initially had an eye on. It was very small wedding but beautiful and very intimate!
