Why is June such a popular month to get married?

June is still a top wedding month…why you ask?

For centuries the month of June has been the most popular choice for weddings – but the original reason might suprise you.  You see, during the 1400 – 1500’s, May was the month in which the “annual bath” occurred.  Yes, just as it sounds, back then people were only able to bathe thoroughly once each year. As such, since the over-all population was smelling relatively fresh in June, it was a good time to hold a special event like a wedding!

Pretty interesting fact uh? 🙂
