Any day you get married is bound to be the best day of your life, but what if some dates were luckier than others?

If you’re a 2019 bride who has already set her date, don't fret—every wedding day is magical. But astrologically speaking, there are some dates that just might be destined for a bit more luck than others. So if you haven't picked a date just yet, let the stars help guide your choice.

BRIDES spoke with expert astrologer Christian Klausner who identified three harmonious dates to tie the knot which have the most potential for lasting love. Here’s what he had to say.

January 19-22

This is a time in which the planet Venus, the goddess of love, forms a most harmonious trine aspect to her masculine counterpart, Mars, while she comes into a meeting with Jupiter, the planet of abundance and growth. This signifies harmony between the sexes, and a few days of incredible growth and expansion to be experienced through following one’s heart and stepping into a new phase of life with a trusted partner. All events which are social and loving are favored during these days—weddings in particular.

On the 19th and 20th the Moon will be in watery Cancer, the sign of the home and family, offering a couple days of increased sensitivity, nurturance, and compassion; these days are tender and intimate. On the 21st and 22nd, the Moon will be in heart-based Leo, making a beautiful aspect to Uranus in Aries and ramping up the Fire energy which makes for some days of enhanced creativity, excitement, and passion. These days are more likely to be inspiring and fit for a huge celebration.

March 29-31

On these special dates, Venus enters watery Pisces, the sign of her “exaltation.” The strengths of Venus become artistic, magnetic, and spiritual in this mystical sign to a very strong degree. Not only this, but she forms two harmonious aspects at once to two planets in Earth signs, offering a solid ground to the transcendent and creatively divine energy of love. The Moon in Capricorn, Uranus in Taurus, and Sextile in Venus on both sides provides solidity, practicality, and a strong foundation to the otherworldly love that can be felt on this day. What more could you ask for?

The only “downside” to this day is that Mercury will be in retrograde at the time, but it will be near ending—and stations direct on the March 28—so this shouldn’t worry you. This doesn’t signal a negative aspect, but rather it's a sign that much can be understood and grasped in a spiritual or intuitive way, against the norm of what is traditionally considered logical or rational—especially since Mercury is retrograding in the water sign of Pisces.

This can help you reach new heights of compassionate communication and empathetic understanding between one another.

May 16th-19th

These dates are special as Venus will be in her home sign of earthy Taurus, while opposite the Moon in sensual Scorpio. The Taurus energy is grounded, practical, and resourceful, but the Moon in the opposite sign of Scorpio can ground the loving energy while still enhancing its ability to be imaginative, creative, and sensual.

Venus, too, will be happy to once again come into a friendly aspect with masculine Mars, which will be in Cancer, the sign of home and family. This adds to the sexiness of the day, and suggests an ability for the masculine and feminine poles to gain a lot by being together on these dates with a loving purpose in mind.

The Sun and Mercury in Taurus will also create powerful trine aspects to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn which will give a huge boost of Earth energy. Events on this day have the potential to create long-term—even life-long—stability, foundational growth, and a positive transformation of the spirit and mind.

Sounds like the perfect wedding date to us!
