Hi Master Tong,

We had ROM last year on 10.10.2015.

We are planning for customary wedding on 4Q 2017, but I heard 2017 is clash with rabbit.
Is that fine for us to hold our customary wedding?

Groom: Dragon
Bride: Rabbit

Groom's Parents: Snake and Goat

Bride's Parents: Goat

Thank you

Hi Master Tong,

I'd like to know if An Chuang, Guo Da Li etc should just accompany Customary wedding?

If we decide to only ROM without customary, do we still proceed with the an chuang procedures before ROM?

Appreciate your advice. Thanks!

I am aware tongshu is nt out yet but is 8 Jul 2017 a general good date for wedding?

Groom is Rat

Hi ni84

C section dates are not that simple. It is about fixing a baby destiny, not just choose a gd date to deliver. that is useless. For this , it is part of my consultation service hence i cannot do FOC here)

Hi kellyyyyylove

Bazi dates are specifically good for both of you ONLY. Tong shu dates to us are just general dates and not accurate as lots of stuffs are not factored in. Hence it is basically better than nothing only . think abt it. if a date is good for rabbit to get married, then the whole world 's rabbit can get married on same day? or rather if you hear that those born in Pig will earn money this yr, is it true all pig will earn money? Obviously not! it depends on a person's bazi (birthday AND time of birth), not just animal sign so simple. hope this helps :)

get dates for BOTH

Hi ashley.lim

Fetch the bride timing will b 9-11am.

There are no gd weekend after 7th for GDL, so your GDL will have to be in july b4 7th mth on 10th Jul, 11-1pm

AC must be BEFORE wedding, hence gd date will be 8th Sep, 11-1pm

Dear Master Tong

"Fetch the bride timing will be 9-11am"- Is it mean that groom can only step into bride house at 9am? Are my bridesmaids possible to start gate crash at 8:30am at downstairs first or can only start at 9am? Thanks.

Hi leocel

C-section dates are based on Bazi, and super complicated to choose. It is not simply a good date and time to c-sect. It is about fixing a baby's destiny. U cannot choose a C-section date or time using the tong shu/almanac. This defeats the purpose of a c-sect date.

For c-section dates selection it is part of my consultation service, hence if you are keen can drop me an email. Tks
How much do you charge for C section date based on Bazi? PM me or send me an email for the info. I am interested. Thanks!


Hi Master Tong,

I heard that lunar 6th month is not good for marriage due to the taboo belief of the sixth month being a half-year, therefore implies a half-marriage.
Is that true?
Thank you!


New Member
Hi Master Tong,

Are there scenarios where an auspicious date for marriage falls on a weekday instead of weekend? As in there is really no weekends for one whole year that is suitable for getting married?
Kindly advise as we are worried that our relatives/friends are unable to make it for the tea ceremony/dinner banquet. Thank you.



Our AD is on 18 Dec 2016.

Can we find out the dates for GDL and an chuang?

Also, if our fetch the bride timing is 9am-11am, does it mean that the couple have to reach groom house at 11am or tea ceremony at groom side has to be completed by 11am?

Our details below:
Groom and bride: both are snake 1989
Groom father: rat (1960)
Groom mother: Ox (1961)
Groom brother: tiger (1986)
Bride father: goat (1955)
Bride mother: horse (1954)
Bride brother: rat (1996)

Hi Master Tong, would like to consult you on the wedding date. We are planning to have our wedding in 2018 as our flat will only be ready by 4Q2017. My zodiac is Dragon. I read that 2018 is the Year of the Dog and it clashes with Dragon. Is it still ok to have our wedding in 2018?

If it is not, is it possible to negate this by having our ROM in 2017 and the Chinese customary n wedding banquet in 2018? Appreciate your advice.

Many thanks!
