We chose November because we wanted to. It's the NJ State Teacher Convention, which means Pete already has off Thursday and Friday. And everyone knows NJ public school teachers barely work in November anyways. But snark aside, take a look at our real reasons for tying a November knot...
1. Have you ever sweat profusely in formal attire?
Pete and I both have, as both our BFFs are -- you guessed it -- TEACHERS who chose to get hitched in June and July, respectively. We have first-hand experience taking outdoor photos in blistering heat and humidity. 'Twas miserable.
2. Do you have a favorite season?
I do. It's fall. Not summer. Do I need any more justification?
3. Do you have a choosy groom?
I don't I'm lucky. I know. Pete let me single-handedly choose our date. Maybe if he was marrying a teacher, he get married in July and that would be OK with him, too.
So there. We'll be married on a crisp, cool, late night in late fall with dry armpits -- although hopefully not dry eyes-- and return to work (and school) Monday morning. Boom.
How did you choose your date? Have people asked you why? xo
