Auspicious dates for wedding/marriage in 2016

Many couples plan for their wedding more than 1 year ahead in order to have sufficient preparation time.

Here is the list of auspicious dates for wedding/marriage in year 2016 (year of Monkey), which is produced based on the Chinese almanac Tong Shu. (Click the image to enlarge)


Bear in mind that although the Tong Shu is a compilation of Chinese astrology and calendaring studies gathering wisdom of thousands of years, we should use it wisely and rationally, but not be too superstitious on it.

Thank you so much for posting the auspicious wedding dates for 2016. Would you happen to know which Saturdays in 2016 is best to be married on..specifically for an ox and a rat? I'm an ox (1985) and my fiancé is a rat (1984). If you require further information, please let me know. Everywhere I have asked, they have been saying that I need to wait until they have the 2016 calendar out next year in order to let me know. It's hard to plan without a date, please help! Thanks in advance!

@Canadiangirl

Just choose one suitable Sat from the table above.

Canadiangirl said... Reply To This Comment

Oh that makes things a lot easier...so there no particular dates or Saturdays that an ox and a rat need to be married on?

Voyager8 said... Reply To This Comment

@Canadiangirl

As long as not in the Exception column.

Besides, ox bride and rat groom is a perfect match. Congratulation.

Hi there, i got proposed to on the 17th of April 2015..Is that bad? I cant find a list of inauspicious dates 2015 for proposal on your website My partner is snake (groom) and i'm a rabbit (bride)

Voyager8 said... Reply To This Comment

@jenn

17 April 2015 is inauspicious for Snake, but it has already passed, hasn't it?

Jennifer said... Reply To This Comment

@Voyager8 Hi, yes it has passed so there's no long term bad luck that will stay with my fiance?

Can i also clarify that its not the numbers 174 that suggests bad luck but the combination of zodiac signs and the actual day itself that may suggest it as being inauspicious?

do proposal dates matter, or is the wedding date the most important one?

Thank you so much!

Voyager8 said... Reply To This Comment

@Jennifer

Haha... inauspicious proposal date means if someone tries to propose on that day, chance of failure is higher.

Inauspicious day for a particular zodiac sign means, for anything you do on that day, it might not be as smooth as usual.

Jennifer said... Reply To This Comment

Oh okay so the numbers 174 don't have any permanent issue long term? Once the day is passed it will be OK if everything went well yea? Sorry really a newbie here and thank you so much for helping to advise!

Voyager8 said... Reply To This Comment

@Jennifer

For long term relationship, it is more depending on the compatibility and complementarity of the personality of both person.

Snake groom and Rabbit bride is generally good match.

I am confused as I have noticed the lunar 7th month aka Ghost month is included in the auspicious calendar. I have been told not to hold my ROM and wedding lunch at 28/8/16 (27/7) as it falls in the Ghost month. Both of us are born in 1990, the year of Horse. Please advise and thank you!

Please refer to the table in the main article above.

Tiger best matches with Horse, Dog or Tiger, but also no harm with Rabbit.

Rabbit best matches with Goat, Dog, Boar or Rabbit, but also no harm with Tiger.

I need help! Rat bride (1972) and dog fiancé (1970) - have to decide between 8/4/16 or 6/26/16 for wedding date.

Rats first marriage was 10/9/99 which was supposedly lucky but ended in divorce.

Voyager8 said... Reply To This Comment

@dany80


Unfortunately, monkey and tiger are incompatible match.

There will be a lot of quarreling moment as both of you are very likely not to concede with each other.

However, this challenge can be overcome with strong determination to keep the relation and avoid to have head-on clashes.

Is there anything that can be done if it is a lucky date but against groom

Voyager8 said... Reply To This Comment

@octoberskyy


In an inauspicious day, probably some unexpected challenge will happen, such as forget something, or encounter some situation, or he might not be in good mood, or ... nothing.

To overcome the challenge, just be more cautious and handle with care and preparation, and most importantly, positive spirit and the power of love.

octoberskyy said... Reply To This Comment

@Voyager8

Is auspicious dates regarding just the wedding day? Or the marriage?

Voyager8 said... Reply To This Comment

There is a separate list for register of marriage, and another separate list for marriage engagement.

Hello! Are these dates reflected as the US calander dates or in China? I know they are a day ahead of us. So, if it says 12/17/2016, would that be 12/18/2016 in the USA? Just wanted to confirm what the dates are exactly here in US. Thank you!

Voyager8 said... Reply To This Comment

@STB PSB


The time is GMT+8.

Tong Shu is observed based on the Sun position (as a result of Earth revolution orbit) and other stars (planets) position, as observed in the sky of middle China (the ancient China, which not yet include areas like Xin Jiang, Tibet, etc).

When it reaches the US time, the position of all the planets already shifted, and the astrological sky might not be the same.

STB PSB said... Reply To This Comment

Lol, I'm so sorry. Still confused. So, if it says 12/17/0216, that would be 12/17/2016 on the US calander, right? Not understanding what GMT+8 time is compared to CST.

GMT+8 is 14 hours ahead of CST.

Voyager8 said... Reply To This Comment

@Watts1097

26 March 2016 is better.

You can look for the same date in other listings here, including auspicious dates for moving, for renovation, for baby birth, for baby hair cut, ...

The more the same date appears in different auspicious listing here, generally indicates the more auspicious elements that day is having.

hi, my fiance and i are thinking of getting married next year, preferably second half of the year. he's born in the year of dog, while i am born in the year of sheep. 3/12/17 looks good, however it clashes with one of his friend's wedding, thus we are avoiding it. we're unable to accomodate to those auspicious dates from sept- nov as my sister is studying in overseas. would be a hassle to make her fly home. thus we're intending to hold it during my sister's holidays.

cant seem to find any good date.. he's considering 2018. however, he will be turning 36 in 2018. if im not wrong, its not good if get married in the year of birth.
