Whether you’re in current planning mode for a 2021 or 2022 wedding or you’re planning a bit further ahead into 2023 or 2024, we’ve curated a massive list of the best wedding dates for you and your guests.  

As soon as you have your date, the real fun can begin! You can draft up those invitations, find that perfect caterer and begin really dreaming about how perfect your day is going to be.

From Supermoons to lucky numbers, you’ll find a bucket full of the best wedding dates below to help you narrow down an ideal date for you–including the ones to avoid!

Align Your Love With The Cosmos

According to our go-to cosmos expert, Jess Carlson, Supermoons bring about healing and positive change. What better way to start your new life together than during this phenomenon?

Having your wedding during a Supermoon will not only fill you with heightened energy and a connection to positive change, it will also light the way for your big day as you will literally have the most light possible for your reception.

Supermoon Dates:

  • Tuesday, June 14, 2022
  • Wednesday, July 13, 2022
  • Tuesday, August 1, 2023
  • Wednesday, September 18, 2024
  • Thursday, October 17, 2024

Of course, the Supermoon isn’t the only way to have your love written in the stars!

Choosing your wedding date or season to align with your zodiac signs is another way to ensure your special day aligns with your selves in a deeper way.

Sagittarius tends to prefer warm weather weddings, or cold weather weddings that come along with warm weather honeymoons.

Libras gravitate toward the classic elegance of an early fall celebration.

A Taurus might enjoy a wedding with all of the trappings of peak spring. 

Of course, the best day or the best season to get married is the one that most resonates with you as a couple.

The best months to get married tend to be October, September, June, May and August with October being the most popular month for several years running.

US Holidays

As a Las Vegas destination wedding location company, it makes sense for us to share US specific holiday dates.

Though it’s not recommended to have your wedding on an actual holiday (due to various reasons like family and friends being unavailable to attend,)  it’s a good idea for it to fall on the day before or the day after a big holiday.

This is because most of your guests will have extra days off work to attend.

Memorial Day Weekend is a favorite because your friends and family will have Monday off to recuperate.

Let’s take a look at the most advantageous holidays you can be planning your wedding around during 2021 to 2024.

Auspicious dates observed in eastern ancient Chinese and Hindu traditions are dates when nothing is inauspicious, everything is in balance and these are some of the luckiest dates to join as one.

Auspicious dates are different for every couple throughout every year, and finding your auspicious dates for 2021 through 2024 is simple

In Chinese culture the number eight symbolizes success and prosperity. The ideal date for a wedding around this philosophy is August 8th, 2021-2024.

The double eight is said to be extremely lucky for a couple’s first day as life-long partners!

Unlucky Dates

There are many historically unlucky dates to say “I do” that stem from different cultures so if you err on the superstitious side then you might want to steer clear of them:

The Ides of March

After the assassination of Julius Caesar on March 15 in 44 BC the Ides of March got a bad rap. Then when Shakespeare wrote it into one of his famous plays with a soothsayer telling Julius Caesar “Beware the Ides of March” that feeling of dread only grew. Since then, couples have notoriously steered clear of March 15th as their wedding day.

Leap Years

Greeks and Romans have always held the belief that starting any new beginning, whether it be marriage or child birth, on leap year is bad luck. We will see a Leap Year during the year 2024.
