One Fine Day

Setting the day, date, time, etc, of the big day is tricky. You will ask yourself tons of questions, who can come, is it OK on a holiday weekend, how late/early, time of year, it can go on forever. But if your Jewish there are even more dates that must be considered.
  • Weddings may not be held on the Sabbath, legal transactions are not permitted on the Sabbath, the includes weddings

  • Nor can they be held on Major Jewish Holidays or Chol Ha-Moed (Weekdays of Festivals which refers to the immediate days of Passover and Sukkot)

  • On days that commemorate tragedies in Jewish History are considered poor choices. Also 3 weeks prior to Tisha B'av from 17 Tammuz to 9 Av and minor Fast days. (For more info see Judaism 101)

Weddings can be held during S'fria, from the end of Passover Shavot and on Saturday nights a wedding may begin no earlier than 2 hours after sundown.

Party hard people!
