Choosing a Wedding Date

When choosing a wedding date, bear in mind that there are dates in the Jewish calendar on which weddings do not traditionally take place. Please consult with the Beth-Din and your Rabbi when choosing your wedding date.

 

Jewish weddings generally do not take place on:

 

  • Shabbat (Friday night after sundown to Saturday night after sundown) and Holidays: Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Passover, Shavuot, and Sukkot.

 

  • Fast Days: Tisha B’Av, the 10th of Tevet, the 17th of Tammuz, the Fast of Gedaliah, and the Fast of Esther. 

 

  • During the counting of the omer (which lies between Passover and Shavuot) or during the three weeks between the 17th of Tammuz and Tisha B’Av, however there are differences in customs and weddings may be held on Lag Ba’Omer and certain days in between.
