According to Sinology, Chinese Folk Culture and Metaphysics Professional Wilfred Leu, these dates are derived from two ancient classics: the royally-approved "Treatise Harmonizing Times and Distinguishing Directions" from the Qing Dynasty, and "The Leading Almanac for Date Selections".

That said, Wilfred cautions that one should be using these dates just as a guide, as there are also other factors to look into.

"One should consider the year, month, day and hour of birth of both bride and groom, as well as the parents from both bride and groom. There is also a 'happiness time and direction', which should be utilized after the bride follows the groom to their matrimonial home."
