Your wedding date will be imprinted on your mind as the most important date of the year and we bet you’re counting down the months and weeks until you can turn the calendar to reveal that special day.
But, imagine if that very same date is also at the forefront of many of your guests’ minds, but for a very different reason. Perhaps it’s a sporting event they simply cannot bear to miss or maybe it’s a public holiday and they had hoped to be on holiday then.
Choosing your wedding date shouldn’t just be a case of picking a season and seeing what dates the venue has to offer. It’s important to give this aspect of planning a bit more consideration or you might find yourself getting more than the average amount of ‘sorry, we can’t make it’ RSVPs or be the victims of pesky last-minute drop-outs.
To make sure your day is the most important in everyone’s social calendar that year, you might want to avoid several dates with events already planned in 2022. We’ve put together a list of all the dates in the next few years that might be best to avoid if you don’t want half the congregation camped out in the bar watching the footie or worse, celebrating at some other event they said yes to first.

Wedding Dates To Avoid | Unlucky Days
These ones go out to all the suspicious couples out there that don’t want to jinx their marriage on day one.
Friday the 13th: Friday May 13, 2022
The unluckiest date of the year has questionable origins. Some historians say it comes from the 13 diners who were present at the last supper, but the famous Babylon’s Code of Hammurabi doesn’t include a 13th law, which suggests this superstition is as old as 1700BC. However it wasn’t actually until the novel ‘Friday, the Thirteenth’ was published in the early 1900s that Friday became part of the unlucky equation.
The Ides of March: Tuesday March 15, 2022
For ancient Romans, an “ides” was simply a date that marked the middle of the month—until Julius Caesar was assassinated on March 15 in 44 BC. Since then, “Beware the Ides of March” has become the mantra of this superstitiously unlucky date.

How Do You Find Auspicious Wedding Dates?
The auspicious wedding date in Hindu culture is often decided by a priest who zeros in on a date and time taking into assessment the to-be bride and to-be groom’s kundali and the panchangam. Not just the wedding muhurat, but the time for different functions is also decided by priests taking into account kundalis and Vedic astrology. This is done to ensure that the bride & groom face no problems of luck while embarking on their journey together.
|Can you get married during your birth month or birthday? |
If you’re considering astrology while deciding the wedding date, it’s not recommended to get married during the birthday month. Sun remains in the house during your birthday month. It’s considered to be the ruler of the planets and can possibly make a person egoistic and selfish. Marriage requires a person to be open-minded, compromising, and calm – mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. So, even the priests won’t pick a date that’s in either of your birthday months. Yet again, if you’re keen on getting married near your birthday – happily go for it, or choose a date in the next month that’s near to your birth date. For example, 31st May if your birthday falls on 8th June.
