21 Unique Save-the-Date Cards and Wedding Invitations

It is June! and June has always been the most popular month for weddings. One of the major aspects of getting married is having a nice wedding invitation or save-the-date cards. Most couple spend a lot to come up with something that is unique and matches the theme that they have in mind. In addition to wedding invitations, couples are now also sending Save-the-Date cards to give plenty of time to their friends and family and make sure that those people they want to be present during the wedding ceremony will not forget the date.

Do you want to know why June is a popular time for weddings? Based on my quick research, June is named after the Roman Goddess of marriage named Juno. It is believed that  if a couple decides to marry during the month of June, Juno will bring prosperity and happiness to their home. On a more practical and logical note, June has been favored as the month to get married in the past because if married in June, the bride was likely to birth her first child in Spring, allowing her enough time to recover before the fall harvest. I’m not sure if this still applies today. Nonetheless, many couples are still choosing to get hitched during this month. To celebrate this month of weddings, here are some unique save-the-date cards and wedding invitations for your inspiration.
