Couples all around the world get married on many different days or months of the year. Some may prefer sunny garden weddings, some may go through holy matrimony in a church, some marry on auspicious days foretold by a Feng Shui master, and some may even choose to fly to LA to get married by an Elvis-impersonator (yes, it’s true).
However, more often than not, brides-to-be often anticipate June as the ideal month for their wedding. Whether it’s due to practicality or self-belief, many people have different things to say about it. Let’s go through some of them and find out which beautiful flowers suit a beautiful June bride!
The Historical Meaning of the June Bride
“For they say when you marry in June, you’re a bride all your life.” – “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers”
The most common idea behind getting married in June is that the month of June derives its name from Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage, fertility, and childbirth. She is otherwise known as Hera in Greek mythology. She is married to the king of the gods, Jupiter (Zeus as his Greek equivalent). As the queen of the gods, she blesses all marriages. Thus, it was considered auspicious to hold weddings in Juno’s month! Couples who get married in June will be blessed with prosperity and happiness – an Asian family’s favorite words to hear!
In Victorian times, people held weddings as bathing was not common back in those days. The fresh flowers that bloomed during June were the perfect decoy to mask body odor, while acting as wedding décor. This is where the tradition of carrying a flower bouquet down the aisle is said to come from!
On the other hand, June is one of the sunniest months of the year! That’s why outdoor weddings are extremely popular. Some couples may opt to have their wedding ceremonies on the beach or an island, or utilize any outdoor space such as pavilions, gazebos, or gardens for their special day.
Let’s take a look at some of the most popular blooms for a June bride-to-be.
5 Popular Flowers for Every June Bride
Roses are one of the most popular flowers of all time. They’re frequently given as a token of affection because they’ve long been associated with love. They are a symbol of love and purity, and often are the first choice for most couples. Each color represents a different meaning:
- Red roses: ‘I love you’, a symbol of romance.
- Pink roses: represents happiness and admiration.
- White roses: symbolizes innocence and purity.
- Orange roses: represents desire and excitement.
- Yellow roses: means cheer and happiness – fair warning, some folks consider it to represent jealousy!
Bonus fact, a red and white rose paired together symbolizes unity—perfect for a wedding!

Lilies of the Valley
Lily of the valley is one of the most popular wedding flowers, and royal weddings have only added to its appeal. In fact, this elegant flower is often associated with traditional feminine values such as chastity, motherhood, sweetness, and purity, all of which have something to do with weddings! With its classic white buds and green stems, it’s the ideal showcase for any themed wedding.
This diverse flower can be paired with roses, peonies, callas and many other blooms for a burst of colour. If you’re a fan of a neutral, all-white wedding, they can also be styled as a neutral bouquet on its own. For a contrasting arrangement, periwinkles, bright roses, or pink peonies work well to accent these particular blooms!
Orchids are long-lasting and surprisingly versatile. Whether for classic or contemporary weddings or tropical outdoor ceremonies, consider using these exquisite blooms in your wedding bouquet or décor.
In the language of flowers, the orchid means “you’re in my thoughts”. That is a perfect way to convey your feelings to your future spouse and all your friends and families who are attending the ceremony. Incorporate this symbolic and botanically stunning flower into your special day, and impress those who have gathered in celebration of your marriage!
When used alone, orchids can make a bold statement with their unique shapes and curved stems. Orchids come in a variety of patterns and colors, so the possibilities are endless! Use them for a different texture to your bouquet, a pop of color for décor, or a cascading flower arrangement. Combine them with other traditional garden flowers like roses and peonies for a splash of creativity.
This flower is a natural and beautiful choice for wedding flower arrangements, with its snowy white blooms, glossy evergreen leaves, and intoxicating fragrance. Gardenia represents secret love, beauty, joy, and purity, making it perfect for any wedding occasion. The pristine white petals ands crisp green foliage of this summer bloom make for a stunning appearance.
These are frequently regarded as luxurious wedding flowers, and they can be an excellent choice for summer weddings. Incorporate these flowers with a variety of other colours and sizes to create your own aesthetic bridal bouquet! Another way to incorporate gardenias into your wedding would be to wear one or two in your hair for a classic, elegant touch. For the handsome groom, he may wear a single white bloom in his pocket, set against his dark colored tuxedo.
