June weddings also implicitly mean that there are many June wedding anniversaries.

Keeping Within Budget
Weddings are already an expensive affair, but by adding the popular season factor to it, you may have hefty expenses to tackle. The best way to avoid any unwelcome surprises and exceeding your budget is by making a list with your absolute must-haves. Once you have finalized what you consider to be the necessities, you can then move on to extras, and keep those fairly modest. If you still have money left over by the time you have finished factoring in all the remaining expenses, you may then choose upgrade your secondary selections to more elaborate options. Getting married during wedding season has its advantages and disadvantages, and higher prices are some of the minuses of marrying during such a popular time. You may wish to choose to prioritize something that you will keep forever, like your wedding bands or wedding dress, rather than something like flowers which will not last longer than that evening.
*Insider tip: Remember, you can’t have it all. However, at the end of the night you will be left with many amazing memories, your new spouse, and the promises that you have now made to each other when you exchanged rings.
Your wedding day will always be close to your heart, and irreplaceable, but you can definitely relive those feelings every year if you choose! A beautiful outing can remind you of your wedding venue, while a stunning piece of jewelry can be a reminder of the beauty of your relationship and the promise of the future. First, try to be in touch with the essence of the day, and only then try to bring it alive with the right destination, activity, gift, or thought.
*Insider tip: If done correctly and with love, the impact of your thoughtfulness will speak for itself, no matter what you do! But when in doubt - she wants diamonds!
