My husband and I will be celebrating our 18th anniversary this month.
I was an 18 year old June bride.
So, to all June Brides...
From "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers"
(Music: Gene DePaul/Lyrics: Johnny Mercer)
Oh, they say when you marry in June,
You're a bride all your life.
And the bridegroom who marries in June
Gets a sweetheart for a wife.
Winter weddings can be gay
Like a Chistmas holiday.
But the June bride hears the song
Of the spring that lasts all summer long.
By the light of the silvery moon
Home you ride, side by side
With the echo of Mendelssohns's tune
In your hearts as you ride
For they say when you marry in June,
You will always be a bride.
