It's a once in a lifetime date, and while many couple have long planned for the auspicious 11/11/11 wedding date, the Los Angeles County clerk's office affirms there won't be any knot-tying at their offices tomorrow.Why? It's Veterans Day, and local government offices are closed in observance of the holiday, including the L.A. County Clerk.

Of course, it's hard to do a last-minute wedding in L.A., and there is always Vegas. More options, per L.A. Now:

Couples can get married “at other agencies that are open if they have gotten their license already,” said Marcia Ventura, a spokeswoman for the L.A. County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk. “Usually we take them by appointment anyway, so we would have told them that we’re not open.”

Hey, there's always 12/12/12 to start planning for.
