There are many reasons why I'm glad I have 12+ months to plan the wedding. One of the best is that I get to have a test run this fall.
It could have been a fiasco. I forgot that the date I originally chose for the wedding - October 4, 2008 - just so happens to be Fleet Week in San Francisco (here's my description from last year). Along with huge crowds of tourists and sailors, there would have been fighter jets booming over our wedding. It would have been like getting married in Beirut!
Luckily, I saw a poster for Fleet Week last night and realized the potential problem. We're likely on for September 27, 2008 instead. It's a better date anyway, my sister and I were both born on the 27th.
PS: Rob just suggested that we celebrate our -1 anniversary next week. Isn't he wonderful?
