Stressed about time and travel

I am living in New York City and getting married in my native San Diego next September. My countdown is almost at 10 months. I know this seems like a lot of time but I need help figuring out how many trips I NEED to take there before the big day. For instance: If I take a trip 3 months before and get the marriage license then, I can also bang out a tasting, fitting and shower in the same week. I just need to know exactly how many times I must travel to CA in the next 10 months in order to get things done efficiently and cost effectively. 
HELP!

    maybe you should have planned a wedding in NYC so this wasn't a concern.

    I think that part of planning a DW (in a destination where you do not live) is knowing that most of your planning will be done by phone or online. you should have factored this in sooner.

    Me four.  I wouldn't have come in if I had read it correctly.  How disappointing.

    OP, maybe you're just having trouble thinking fourth-dimensionally.

    My thoughts exactly.  J and I went into DW planning knowing that there was no way were going to travel to Ireland before the wedding and that everything would be done online - which is why we also hired a wedding planner. 

    If you can't handle the stress, maybe re-evaluate your plans

    I read your title as "Stressed about Time Travel". 

    That would have been way more interesting.

     @Wifezzilla, Thank you for actually responding with a little advice. It was really disappointing to me that every one else just decided to comment on how I was selfish having a destination wedding. The fact of the matter is I am from San Diego and so is every single person my fiance and I know. We will actually be the only people traveling for the wedding. We are living on the East Coast because of work. In any case, thank you for offering support.
