Lucky and unlucky months to get married in

Lucky and unlucky months to get married in

Some believe you make your own luck, others hold fast to age-old traditions and superstitions. We’re not here to judge. In fact, many cultures swear by certain dates and times as being good for marriages, while naming other months as a wedding date will undoubtedly extract a gasp from some.

An old rhyme would guide many in choosing their wedding month through the years (although it does seem to revolve around the weather of the northern hemisphere, so you might want to take it with a pinch of salt). We take a look at some of the months that will see you have a long and happy marriage, and which months to steer clear of.

When to say ‘I do’:

February: “Married in February’s sleepy weather, Life you’ll tread in tune together.”

June: “Married in month of roses – June – Life will be one long honeymoon.”

July: “Married in July, with flowers ablaze, Bitter-sweet mem’ries in after days.”

August: “Married in August’s heat and drowse, Lover and friend in your chosen spouse.”

September: “Married in September’s golden glow, Smooth and serene your life will go.”

November: “Married in veils of November mist, Fortune your wedding-ring has kissed.”

December: “Married in days of December cheer, Love’s star shines brighter from year to year.”

When to say ‘I don’t’

January: “Married in January’s hoar and rime, Widowed you’ll be before your prime.”

March: “Married when March winds shrill and roar, Your home will lie on a distant shore.”

April: “Married ‘neath April’s changeful skies, A chequered path before you lies.”

October: “Married when leaves in October thin, Toil and hardships for you begin.”
