Best Dates In 2023 & 2024

So what is the best date to get married in 2023 or 2024? There isn't a "good" or "bad" wedding date —any day is the perfect time to celebrate love! When it comes to wedding planning, you could say the best wedding dates could be determined by the time of year.

The time of year will impact how easy (or difficult ) it is to secure your big day. October has been the most popular month for weddings for a few years now. Then it's followed by September, June, May, and August.

So it makes sense that weddings during these months get snatched up faster than less popular months, such as January, February, and March.

Best Wedding Dates to Consider for Savings

The easiest way to save is to pick a wedding date during the "off-season," typically in January, February, and March. In many areas of the country, the weather can be cold and snowy, which is why couples tend to shy away from planning an event during this time. But a winter wedding can be truly magical, so don't overlook this time of year—especially if you have a tight budget.

Another way to save is to skip the weekend wedding and consider saying I do on weekdays.

Why Consider a Weekday Wedding

One of the easiest ways to get a wedding date and save some money is by considering a mid-week event. This option has become more popular with couples over the past year or two. Some of the perks of getting married on a weekday include:

  • More availability. Weekends get booked up fast, so searching for a weekday date will open up more options for you.
  • Saving money. Venues tend to charge less on weekday wedding dates, and vendors are more likely to negotiate.
  • Smaller guest list. It tends to be a bit more difficult for guests to attend—mainly because they need to take off from work—but that could be a good thing. A smaller guest count means your budget will go further. You can make their experience much more memorable, and you'll have more time to spend with your family and friends who are in attendance.
  • Travel is cheaper. It is often more affordable to fly and secure a hotel room when traveling during the week.

Want an easy way for guests (and your spouse) to always remember your anniversary? Pick a palindrome date, which reads the same backward as forward. And this year palindrome dates have come and gone, but there are plenty in 2023 to choose from, including:

  • Monday, March 20, 2023 (3-20-23)
  • Tuesday, March 21, 2023 (3-21-23)
  • Wednesday, March 22, 2023 (3-22-23)

Auspicious Wedding Dates 2023 & 2024

What is the luckiest month to get married in 2023 or 2024? Luck plays a massive part in many cultures, especially in Chinese and Hindu weddings. Auspicious wedding dates are dates that are considered to be lucky. For example, in Chinese culture, the eight symbolizes success and prosperity. So the most fortunate wedding date for the coming year would be 8-8-22. Chinese New Year (1-22-23) is also considered a lucky wedding day.

Some believe that weddings during a supermoon are good luck, which brings about healing and positive change. Those dates for 2023 and 2024 are:

  • Monday, July 3, 2023
  • Tuesday, August 1, 2023
  • Thursday, August 31, 2023 (also a blue moon)
  • Friday, September 29, 2023

It also makes sense to avoid specific wedding dates because they are "unlucky." March, July, and September are unlucky months in the Chinese lunar calendar.

Wedding celebrations are avoided this time because of many festivals associated with death. In the Hindu culture, some dates throughout the year are unlucky and should be avoided. Besides, these dates are generally believed to be not the best wedding dates:

  • Tuesday, March 15, 2023 (3-15-23) – The Ides of March
  • Friday, January 13, 2023 (1-13-23) – Friday the 13th
  • Friday, October 13, 2023 (10-13-23) – Friday the 13th

Wedding Dates To Avoid in 2023 & 2024

Travel is always more expensive over any holiday weekend. Skip holidays like Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, etc. Guests may get the time off from work, but they'll pay a lot for flights and hotel rooms.

Other wedding dates to avoid, mostly because they're major holidays and your wedding guests likely have other plans, include:

  • Sunday, February 12, 2023 (2-6-2023) – Super Bowl Sunday
  • Sunday, May 8 (5-8-2023) – Mother's Day
  • Sunday, June 18 ( 6-18-2023) – Father's Day

One thing to think about is if you are aiming for a destination wedding and you have the perfect venue in mind that falls on a big event. If your wedding lines up with events like Mardi Gras in New Orleans or Comicon in San Diego, you may want to reconsider the date. It may seem like a fun time to get married, but everything (venues, hotel rooms, etc.) will be expensive. Also, many of your guests might not appreciate the crowds.

Once you've completed picking the day your wedding is going to land on, you can start choosing your wedding look.
