May
Marry in the month of May and you'll surely rue the day.

June
Marry when the June roses grow over land and sea you'll go.

July
Those who in July do wed will labour for their daily bread.

August
Whoever wed in August be, many a change is sure to see.

September

If in October you do marry love will come, but riches tarry.
