Haircuts, Shaving, Weddings, and Music on Friday Day 31 of the Omer TOMORROW!
The Rema (OC 493:2) paskins that for those who take a haircut and shave on Lag Ba'Omer it is permitted to do so on Friday when Lag Ba'Omer falls on Sunday like this year. Since it is permitted to shave on Sunday it is not Kavod Shabbos to be unkempt on Shabbos and groom oneself right afterwards on Sunday. Although others disagree we are noheg like the Rema.
With regard to making a wedding on Friday there are those who hold that it is permissible only in a Sha'as HaDchak while other hold that it is forbidden under any circumstances.
Listening to music everyone agrees must wait until Sunday.
