Does this mean I could simply be "on call" for the length of the trial, or I actually have to sit in the courtroom for 5 months? I'm in the middle of planning my wedding overseas AND taking courses Wed/Sat AND have a full time job! I can't imagine having to sit in a courtroom for 5 months on top of everything else!

Basically what anon posted.
That means that you are listed as a potential juror for any case within the next five months. You could get called tomorrow, or you may get called four months, and twenty nine days from now.
You can actually go to the courthouse and ask for a pass, so as to exclude you from this round, if you have a good reason. I'm not sure that planning for a wedding counts, but if your wedding date is within that five month period, you may be eligible for a pass.
They can potentially through you right back into the next pool, though, as soon as this five month cycle has ended.1
