Here's the thing...Jews, we're superstitious people. I am no exception, nor is Jeremy - to a reasonable extent. So we picked a date for the wedding - and then found out it is during a "Bad Luck Time" - the Counting of the Omer. Dang Omer counting, messed up our date. After much debate, we decided not to test our luck, not to mess with the Omer! We are two people who do not have tremendous luck - lets not go there. However, the Omer counting lasts a long time!
To make a long story short, we picked a date - April 4, 2009. No Omer counting involved. Not a bad luck time. And all the superstitious people out there have informed us that, if it rains, well that's added GOOD luck! So there it is - April 4, 2009 - be there or be square.
