Picking an auspicious Date (择吉日/ 看日子) is important to ensure that everything goes well on the wedding day and also so that the couple could have a happy marriage. You have to provide birth dates/ time of bride and groom, date of birth of parents. Gregorian dates are fine as they can convert them to lunar (Chinese calendar) dates. You will be asked if you want to have your wedding on the first or second half of the year, then they’ll narrow down some dates for you to choose. The dates are chosen by an experienced master according to Chinese Astrology. Generally, 7th (ghost month) and 3rd (Ching Ming) lunar month are not suitable for weddings. Get red packet ready to give to the sifu (master).
