June: Schedule

The month of June is probably named after Juno, the wife of Jupiter, and Queen of the Gods (Hera to the Greek). It was held sacred to her, and was thought by the Romans to be the luckiest month for marriage, since Juno was the Goddess of Marriage and Family. Wherever the goddess went she was attended by her messenger Iris.  Juno is always represented as a tall, beautiful woman, wearing a crown and bearing a scepter in her hand, and often she is shown with a peacock at her side, since that bird was sacred to her. A wedding celebrated in June was believed to please Juno, who would assure prosperity and happiness to the newlyweds.
Over the years, the month of June continues to be regarded as the most popular month for celebrating a wedding event. Some say it's because it marks the start of moderate temperatures and reasonable outdoor weather, while others chalk it up to a wider and cheaper array of flowers available during this colorful.
