Sudden Change of Date, Location
Posted on Thursday, April 23, 2009
The hardest part of planning our wedding so far has been not having a date. We’ve been in talks with the Zero G company since the beginning of the year, and at first, it seemed like they might do a flight out of New York later this year. That fell through, and then we were going to buy tickets for an unannounced flight out of Boston on June 13th.
Today the Boston flight fell through, so now it looks like we’re getting married on June 20th in Cape Canaveral, Florida. That was one of our possible locations before I went to Japan, so it’s not totally unexpected. It is troublesome, because Boston is a $30 bus ride from New York City, whereas Florida is a $200+ flight, and we have to rent a car, and so forth.
The number one question people ask when you tell them you’re engaged is “So when is the wedding?” followed up by “Where?”
My wedding is unusual in many ways, but with just two months to go, I still don’t have a definite date or location. I thought we were buying the Zero G tickets yesterday, for sure, but our purchase still hasn’t happened yet. My dad has been asking me when the zero gravity flight will take place for over a year, and I still don’t have a definite answer.
Here are some pictures of the final dress, although very small:
