Weddings Spring 2010?

Q: My fiance and I are trying to plan our wedding and we are having some trouble determining whether certain dates are appropriate or not. We are trying to plan for April or May 2010 but we are unsure whether it is acceptable to have a wedding during that time. Are there any Sundays during that time which weddings are allowed?

Passover (Pesach): 30 March 2010 (Tuesday)
Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah): 11 April 2010 (Sunday)
Israel Memorial Day (Yom HaZikaron): 18 April 2010 (Sunday)
Israel Independence Day (Yom HaAtzmaut): 19 April 2010 (Monday)
Lag B'Omer: 2 May 2010 (Sunday)
Shavuot: 19 May 2010 (Wednesday)
Tisha B'Av: 20 July 2010 (Tuesday)

First od all, mazel tov!!! Pesah begins March 30. Orthodox and some Conservative won't do any weddings till after Shavuot May 19. Some will do any Sunday after Holocaust commemmoration. April 19. Some will do on lag baomer which is a Sunday that year, May 2. Reform and reconstructionist rabbis may do during any time that period. Up to the rabbi. Sorry its confusing.
