"Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale." unknown author

June can be the month of happy occasions and fairy tales, especially for those celebrating a wedding. We live in an era where weddings are special and joyous events any time of the year, from tropical destinations to formal affairs.  June, however, is still the most popular month of the year for weddings.

Interesting note:  This tradition began way back in the Roman times when the goddess Juno the symbol of woman, marriage and childbearing was honoured on June 1. Therefore making it a popular time for marriages.

The Old Farmers Almanac asked married couples what makes a marriage last. The best answers:

-Be prepared to give more than you think you are receiving, and you will receive more than you know.

-The secret is Communication, Compromise, Cooperation, and Compassion.

-Listen, listen, listen.

A wedding is the celebration of the commitment chosen by two people who have a love story.  So if you are attending one or are a part of the joyous event, you also want to look good.   Raffinee is the place for choosing what to wear.  Whether it is a backyard event or a dressy affair, take a peak below for some fresh ideas.
