Is a wedding for 2 Jewish people who have never been married permitted during the Omer?


The prevalent custom, which is noted by the Shulchan Aruch and is binding in halachah, is that weddings are not conducted in the first half of the Omer, until the day of Lag BaOmer (see Mishnah Berurah 493:15; Shaar HaZion 13).

After this, it is permitted to hold the wedding (though most Ashkenazim refrain from getting married even after Lag BaOmer, until after Shavuos).

Best wishes.
