Importance of Choosing An Auspicious Wedding Date

Your wedding day is, probably the most eventful part of your life, and so careful planning is essential to ensure that everything is perfect. The choice of the gown, the venue, the food, the number of guests, the souvenirs, the date, and other details must be thought of carefully.

Many couples differ in their decision with the regards to the perfect wedding date. There are, after all, several factors that may influence the decision. Some choose to marry on Valentine's Day, some choose the day of their engagement as the day they will also get married. Others tend to be more superstitious, and they rely on astrology, feng shui, and other Chinese beliefs and traditions, to set the date when they shall walk down the aisle.

Indeed, for many people choosing an auspicious wedding date is just as important as, or even more so, than the other details, in planning a wedding.

A Lucky Day - August 8, 2008

Interestingly, for the year 2008, the most auspicious wedding date is said to be on August 8, 2008 or 8-8-88. Accordingly, the number 8 is a symbol of eternity and infinity, thus getting married during this time should bring you lots of love and luck. If you have noticed, the number 8 interlocks just like two people in love. And the interesting point here is that, this auspicious date is not based on the Chinese calendar!
