The typical use the present tense to describe something in the future wording always confuses me. That is, when thinking about how to talk about something in the future, I tend to think in the future (or almost future -- voy a) tense. Well, the light just came on.
Here is what I got in my daily Spanish email:
Mi hermana se casa el mes que viene.
My sister is getting married next month.
I look at it. There is nothing about getting in the Spanish. It says "My sister marries next month", just like you might say it in English.
