Picking the perfect wedding date is a complicated process. The stars must align for the venue, the guests, the weather and a handful of other considerations to coalesce into one flawless day. Couples in many cultures must also undergo extensive consultations with astrologers to predict the luckiest days to announce the engagement, send out invitations and hold the ceremony.
Each year, the Chinese Tung Shing and Hindu Panchangam astrological calendars predict the most auspicious days for love and marriage. After consulting several charts, I have compiled a list of Lucky Weekend Wedding Dates in 2014 and 2015 to help couples pinpoint a blessed day to wed.
Although the Year of the Green Wood Horse, which spans February 4, 2014, to February 18, 2015, is prophesied to be a rough time for romance, the Chinese calendar recognizes 55 blessed weekend days for a wedding. Those born under the sign of the horse are advised to delay their plans until 2015 as this will be a year filled with impulsive behavior. However, people born under the signs of the dog, tiger and snake are destined for a year filled with flourishing relationships., so consider getting engaged or married.
