With the whole day to prepare and the next day to recover from the party, Saturday is the most popular day in the U.S. to schedule a wedding. Although there are 52 possible Saturdays to choose from, precious few are prophesied to bestow special blessings upon a marriage. If your heart is set on having a Saturday shindig, you must move quickly to secure your time slot.

Friday evenings are perfect for smaller weddings or when most of the guests live nearby. Many vendors provide discounts for Friday weddings, which can shave thousands of dollars off your expenses. You are also more likely to secure your dream location on the date you want.

The same perks apply to Sunday weddings, which are especially popular in the Jewish religion since marriage ceremonies are forbidden during Shabbat. Sunday is also an idyllic day for Christian ceremonies, especially if alcohol is limited or excluded during the reception.

To help you pick your perfect wedding day, here are the most auspicious wedding dates in 2014 and 2015 as determined by the Chinese Tung Shing and the Hindu Panchangam astrological almanacs.

Chinese Tung Shing

The newly released Tung Shing calendar indicates fortuitous dates during the Year of the Green Wood Horse, which spans February 4, 2014, to February 18, 2015. Before choosing your lucky wedding date, you must crosscheck it with your horoscope. Each day has an associated Chong Evil that actually cancels out the predicted good fortunes for anyone born under a specific sign.

There are eight lucky weekend days in March and April 2014 and nine in 2015. Depending on the climate of where you live, this is a beautiful time of the year to get married with the whole world blooming in the background. It is also still the off-peak season. When the U.S. wedding season kicks off on May 1, expect prices for venues, photographers and tuxedos to shoot up.

July and August, the most common wedding months in the U.S., are ripe with options. This is a great time to hold an outdoor ceremony or to give traveling guests an opportunity to take an extended summer vacation.

October offers numerous opportunities for a spectacular autumn wedding, but winter dates are scarce. However, with a little planning, the off-peak dates should be available for most venues.

The 8th Voyager has compiled a list of lucky wedding dates in 2014 and 2015, along with the associated horoscopes that should avoid these dates, based on information from the Chinese Tung Shing.

Hindu Panchangam

The Hindu Panchangam astrological calendar also calculates auspicious days for marriage. Expect venues to fill fast for the lucky Friday, February 14, 2014, and Saturday, February 14, 2015, dates as couples look to celebrate their love on Valentine's Day

Couples are also presented with several options for May and June, although choices are slim for the rest of the year. In honor of Chaturmas, when the gods are in their deep yogic sleep, all Hindu marriage celebrations are banned between July 8, 2014, and November 3, 2014, as well as between July 27, 2015, and November 22, 2015. Although they are auspicious dates, March 9-15, 2014, are sacred days in the week proceeding Holi.
