Christians are a bit less strict, but there are still a few days that are all but verboten. Practicing Christians do not marry during the Holy Week, which is from Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday. In fact, any Sunday is a gamble. Some churches find Sunday ceremonies auspicious and joyful, while others eschew ceremonies on the day of rest. It really does depend upon your denomination and that of most of your guests. Whenever possible, it is best to err on the side of caution. If your soon-to-be-in-laws are devoutly religious, stay away from days they might perceive as sacred.

If non-kosher animal horns are used, there must be a special bracha or blessing. Still cow horns or antlered animal horns are not preferred.
