I have the same situation as well. I’ve had cousins religious and semi religious have their weddings during Ashura, and I’m not as religious as my religious cousins, but I want to avoid it just to be respectful during the time of Ashura. And my FI’s mother is pretty strict and superstitious so were just avoiding celebrating during that time for Islamic sake.

I don’t think it’s a matter of if you’re strictly observant; it matters whether you’re Shia or Sunni. And, the date thing – it just depends on where in the world you are and the moon thing.

For example, I’m posted in Afghanistan, so it would probably be a different day than in the US. From my (non-Muslim living in Muslim countries) experience with Ashura, it’s a one day gig.
