June is also a good month for weddings on the practical side. Kids are off from school so it's easier for whole families to attend and much easier to get time off from work for the honeymoon, which 99% of couples plan for. If you're really thinking financial upside, marry in June and you're considered married for the entire year for tax purposes and might even get some money back to help pay for it all.
So if June is the month for weddings, then April and May are certainly filled with bridal showers which means gifts, followed by all those weddings, which leads to even more gifts and the time is right now to pick out something unique and memorable for the happy couple.
Personalize with Monogrammed Gifts
Celebrate the happy couple with personalized gifts they'll cherish forever. Picture frames embossed with inspirational messages, personalized cutting boards with a shared or hybrid last name and daily reminders of the day on a monogrammed wall key holder are just a few ideas. For the first anniversary, the paper anniversary, give them Folded Book Art with the date of their nuptials Created by carefully folding the pages of a book into their special date or with their initials.
Make their home a castle
