September 13 & December 13, 2024
June 13, 2025
March 13, 2026 & November 13, 2026
August 13, 2027

How about a Friday the 13th ceremony? That’s right, poke a stick in the eye of those ninnies who see it as unlucky. Make it the best date of your life. 2024 and 2026 have two Friday the 13ths each, while 2025 and 2027 each have only one.

April Fool’s Day — April 1st

Hey, we know it’s April Fool’s Day. That’s what makes it fun! It lands on a Saturday in 2023, which means it’s an especially perfect day for getting married. Maybe you can get a couple’s tattoo after the ceremony commemorating the date in ink.  

Ink Mayhem and Bike Week Mayhem — April 25–28, 2024

If you don’t mind traveling a bit, the annual tattoo convention and motorcycle rally, Ink Mayhem and Bike Week Mayhem the Main Event, is in Bullhead City, Arizona (only about 90 miles from Vegas). Sounds like a perfect wedding location and timeframe to us!  Keep an eye on their Facebook, Instagram or website

Anniversary of Bram Stoker’s Dracula — May 26

You might have to explain this to your family and friends, but why not share your anniversary with the anniversary of the book Dracula by Bram Stoker? The book was published May 26, 1897 and has obviously spawned more books, movies, stories and myths than you can count. If that whole Dracula thing floats your boat, you could have a lot of fun with this one, whether it’s a gothic wedding dress, vampirish wedding favors or reception festivities with a Dracula vibe.

Solar Eclipses

April 8, 2024
March 29, 2025
August 12, 2026
August 2, 2027

On these days, a solar eclipse will occur when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, obscuring the sun from those of us on Earth. In other words, it will be dark for a brief period. Wouldn’t it be cool AF to have an outdoor wedding and time your wedding vows for that very moment? We think so.  

Halloween Season — October

Obviously these dates encompass the Halloween season, which gives you countless options for funky-themed wedding decorations. Zombies and skulls anyone? But it also happens to be a full moon. Imagine a night wedding with the full moon in the sky, a gorgeous black wedding gown and a skull wedding cake in the wings. No one will forget it. And just imagine the wedding photos!

Auspicious Wedding Dates

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 wedding dates are different for every couple throughout every year, and finding your auspicious dates for 2024 through 2027 is simple

In Chinese culture, the number eight symbolizes success and prosperity. The ideal date for a wedding around this philosophy is August 8th, 2023–2025.

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

And for our math inspired lovers, we’ve listed a bunch of dates that equal the years 2024, 2025, 2026 and 2027 (aka. ‘24, ’25, ’26, ’27.)

  • Monday, 12-2-24 – 12 x 2 = 24
  • Thursday, 12-12-24 – 12+12= 24
  • Monday, 5-5-25 – 5 x 5 = 25
  • Wednesday, 10-15-25 – 10 + 15 = 25
  • Monday, 12-14-26 – 12+14 = 26
  • Wednesday, 12-15-27 – 12+15 =27

Numbers & One of a Kind Wedding Dates
