June was once the number one month for weddings. I was married in June and so were both our children. Why June? It's warm. It's the end of school. Coats aren't needed. Grass is green and flowers are abundant. So why not June?
Have you written about your wedding or someone else's wedding? There are so many different kinds of weddings--lavish extravaganzas, small with family only, destination, elopements, courthouse, Justice of the Peace, outdoor, church, and perhaps a Zoom wedding this year.
Weddings offer so many sub-headings that you can write about. Here's a partial list:
- humorous happenings
- selecting the wedding dress
- choosing attendants
- finding a venue for ceremony and reception
- ordering the wedding cake
- shoes to go with the special dress
- wedding photographer and photographs
- rehearsal dinner
- wedding day jitters
- tears at weddings
- sad happenings
- disastrous happenings
- father of the bride
- mother of the bride
- the groom and his attendants
- the reception--flowers, food, drinks, musicians
- the honeymoon
- weddings you attended as a guest
- weather on the wedding day
Write about any one of the above or incorporate several into one memorable family story. Wedding stories are also publishable. Weddings draw readers, especially the female ones. If you are writing a wedding story to submit somewhere, be sure you don't just describe what happened. Add feelings and a universal truth or something you learned. You want it to be more than a (wedding) slice of life.
You can also write an article as a how-to for people planning weddings.
