Is it bad to plant in soil wet from rain?

We had heavy rain last night and the soil is pretty soggy. But all week I've been planning to plant umpteen flats of annuals this weekend; plus half that number of small quart sized perennials.

Apart from the added labor of digging in wet soil, is there any reason why I can't? Is it bad for the plants in any way? Worse for perennials versus annuals?
