Call me scrooge and cranky, because I seem to like nothing in real life. I do, but weddings and holidays are just not my thing. Call it childhood trauma and you wouldn’t be wrong.
But here’s where I am – I am loving all of the Christmas movies and all of the wedding movies that Hallmark gives us. And now that it’s June, it’s time for weddings in June.
Here’s this months lineup so you can make all your plans to watch all of the upcoming movies, because trust us, you’ll want to.
Saturday, June 3 (8 p.m. ET/PT)
Journalist Trish Peterson is on back-to-back bridesmaid duty for her three childhood best friends in a whirlwind wedding season. When her designated date is unable to join her, she pairs up with photographer Ryan, the brother of her best friend, Sean. Ryan and Trish have a history with one another, so they act as each other’s plus one. Once paired up they realize the feelings they have held for each other since high school start to return. As Trish writes a magazine article from the perspective of how weddings impact friendships, she learns lessons from three very different couples who have been by her side through thick and thin. Everything appears to be going well when a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity arises for Ryan, potentially separating him from Trish once again – and one couple starts to have doubts about their relationship. With everything at stake and emotions running high, the friends take a hard look at what their priorities are and realize that true love is worth fighting for.
LOVES GREEK TO ME
Saturday, June 10 (8 p.m. ET/PT)
Ilana and her Greek boyfriend Mike travel to Santorini for his sister Alex’s wedding, where all his relatives immediately welcome her with open arms. When Mike surprises Ilana by asking her to marry him at the same lighthouse where his father proposed many years prior, his well-meaning – and overly enthusiastic – mother Athena shifts into overdrive, excited to be gaining another daughter. Ilana gets caught in the vortex of Athena’s attempts to “help,” including purchasing a wedding gown for her future daughter-in-law and booking the church…even though Ilana and Mike aren’t rushing to set a date or plan on having a big fat Greek wedding. As Alex’s big day nears and the preparations ramp up, Ilana becomes more uneasy about what the future may hold for her and Mike, leading her to wonder if they’re truly meant to be together or if love is all Greek to her.
THE WEDDING CONTRACT
Saturday, June 17 (8 p.m. ET/PT)

However, Raina suggests an unusual arrangement to teach Vivi her tactics: she will use her expertise to help Vivi find love, and Vivi can use what she learns through this process to help her company. As they embark on this matchmaking journey, Vivi meets Raina’s spontaneous son, Bhumesh, and questions whether finding love is something one must take control of or allow to happen on its own.
