Lucky Wedding Dates

If you're superstitious, you might want to book these historically auspicious dates from across several cultures for your wedding. Did we miss any? Let us know in the comments below!

Any Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday

Ever heard the old English proverb that says that the days at the beginning of the week are the luckiest and the ones at the end of the week are the unluckiest? "Monday for health, Tuesday for wealth, Wednesday the best day of all, Thursday for losses, Friday for crosses, Saturday is no day at all." Jews also consider Tuesday a lucky day because in the Torah's story of creation, there are two mentions that "G-d saw that it was good" on the third day.

New Year's Eve

The Irish believed that the last day of the year, New Year's Eve, is lucky because the couple will wake up on the first day of the New Year for their first day of married life together.

Any Day in June

The sixth month is considered a lucky month for weddings because it's named after Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage.

Chinese New Year

The luckiest dates on the Chinese lunar calendar, which include Chinese New Year, change annually based on complex calculations of lunar and solar solstices and other astronomical events.
