Other customs in China when choosing the year for wedding:

1. Avoid the year without Spring: Chinese people usually think it’s inauspicious to get married in the years without Spring. That means if the year doesn’t have the Start of Spring day which usually happens on Feb. 4th, you’d better avoid the year as people think you may become a widow and has few chance of getting a baby after marriage. 2016 (year of the Monkey), 2019 (year of the Pig), 2021(year of the Ox), 2024 (year of the Dragon), 2027 (year of the Sheep) are years without Spring.

2. Avoid your Ben Ming Nian: There is also a custom that it’s inauspicious to get married in one’s Ben Ming Nina (the zodiac year of the person). So, you’d better advance it to the previous year or postpone it to the next year.
