Weddingds in Italy

15 August 2019

History can shed some light on why people choose summer weddings. The tradition of June marriage actually dates back to Ancient Rome. On June 1, the Romans celebrated the deities Juno and Jupiter, the goddess of marriage and childbirth. The dearth of flowers also led to an uptick of weddings in Victorian times — not only were they beautiful, but they also hid body odour according to Huffington Post. So maybe when you plan your dream wedding in the summer, it could be because you're subconsciously doing as your ancestors would have done. Additionally, once something is part of tradition because it's been done throughout history, it becomes embedded into your brain. This connection can lead you to fantasize about summer nuptials.
