Key points to remember while looking for auspicious wedding dates 2018
- A Shubh Muhurat is not a date or a day. It’s a time on a day that is considered highly auspicious for a Hindu wedding.
- The below-mentioned dates might not be considered auspicious by some, as different subcultures and subcastes follow different customs and practices, and have diverse opinions.
- The general practice followed while deciding on a date is to consult a pandit (Hindu priest) with few date choices as well as the Janam Kundalis (birth charts) of the bride and groom. The pandit then provides the families of the couple with few Muhurats out of which, one is selected.
- Individuals or families who’re either looking for ‘perfectly safe’ dates can go for Abhuj Sava dates – certain days in the calendar, that are considered so auspicious that one need not consult a pandit.
- Wedding dates that coincide with public holidays or weekends (Friday, Saturday & Sunday) provide ample convenience to guests; which is why these dates are sought after highly, not just by the Hindu community, but everyone. Wedding venues in Delhi as well as vendors remain fully-booked for these dates, that too in advance.
- The days between 15th December and 30th December are highly favored for NRI weddings or weddings with many foreign guests.
- Below-mentioned auspicious dates are provisional and may vary depending on the Hindu calendar.
