Gong Xi Fa Cai! As the Chinese New Year celebration was concluded, people from all walks of life were eager to hear what the Feng Shui experts had to say about their luck for the year 2012.

The period from January 23, 2012 to February 9, 2013 is known to be the “Year of the Dragon”. Dragons ultimately symbolize power, success, and good fortune. So just as married couples are rushing to give birth to Dragon babies, soon-to-wed couples are trying to set their wedding dates within the Dragon year.

Date selection based to the Chinese almanac Tung Shu are widely followed by many soon-to-wed couples as they have been known to bring good luck to the newlyweds. Tung Shu is a compilation of Chinese astrology and calendar studies gathered through thousands of years. These auspicious wedding dates then help couples choose a good wedding date in hopes of a happy and fruitful marriage.

Here are the auspicious wedding dates gathered from three different sources for the Year of the Dragon:

Jan – 5, 10, 12, 14, 19, 21, 22, 24, 31
Feb – 2, 3, 4, 6, 12, 13, 16, 21, 25

April – 3, 6, 11, 12, 15, 23, 27 
May – 5, 7, 9, 12, 18, 19, 24, 27, 31
June – 2, 4, 5, 6, 9, 12, 13, 15, 27, 28, 30  
July – 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 16, 22, 23, 28, 29, 31
Aug – 2, 4, 5, 7, 10, 11, 13, 14, 23, 25, 31

Nov – 2, 5, 11, 17, 23, 25, 26, 29
Dec – 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 13, 18, 21, 30

However, it is important to know that these dates are generic in nature. This means that date selection may still differ depending on the birth dates of the couple. In addition to dates, auspicious hours can be chosen as well.

There is also a lot more to choosing the dates for weddings which may need the advice of a Feng Shui expert. However, auspicious dates should be used in a rational matter as being too superstitious about it won’t do anyone any good.
