"Did you know...?"

There are many different reasons couples opt to get married in a particular month. Warm weather and the best chance for good photo opportunities spurs many couples to tie the knot during the summer months. Although June has long been the most popular month for getting hitched, times are changing. Numbers from the American National Center for Health Statistics indicate that July and August have had more marriages than June for the last several years. In Australia, the insurance organization Million Dollar Woman indicates that October is the most popular month for tying the knot. In North America, the most popular month to walk down the aisle is July, followed by August, June, May, September, October, December, November, April, February, and March. January has the least number of weddings. Couples who are looking to save money or avoid competition for vendors with other couples can use this information when choosing a date for their weddings.
