Earrings, dress, topaz and my new icy blue vintage bag (ebay!)
I haven''t decided if I''ll use this bag with it or not. I''ll see what the other one looks like first.

Bodice with earrings and topaz. I''m going to get the topaz set in a 4 prong solitaire pendant, white metal.

I did try it on, but I didn''t zip it up. Lol. It''s got some hardcore boning going on in the bodice, and it''s like a separate garment from the dress itself that has hook and eye closures. And then the dress''s zipper on top of that. So I didn''t even attempt to do it myself. I''m going to need to get put into it instead of putting it on...Lol. From what I could tell, the bodice just a tiny bit too small, but decent undergarments and some workouts will fix that quickly. Stupid 34DDs. But really, I''m thrilled with it. It is amazing in person. I was really worried that I would be falling out of the top, but I don''t at all.

Awwww....you guys are so sweet. I''m really getting excited about it now. Having the dress makes it so real...

I told FI yesterday, "Now that I have the dress, there is no going back."

He just looked at me and shook his head.

I called that my built-in corset! I loved it ''cause it helped hold the dress up all night. You won''t have to worry about tugging and pulling up the dress.

I do musey! It''s a hell of an amazing dress. It''s better than I thought it would be from the pictures even! And from what I can tell (being that it wasn''t zipped!) it looks great on. I''ll let you guys know what my friend thinks tomorrow. She''s very honest. Plus, I''ll get her to take pics so you can see for yourselves...

What do you have left to do?
What do I have left to do, in no particular order:

--fill out around 18 waivers, worksheets, questionnaires, and forms for floral, reservations,
--figure out shoe pair #2
--figure out a hair style
--buy something for my hair
--pick a place for the reception dinner
--find MOH shoes
--design (or hire someone to design) my invites
--make invites
--figure out a shirt for FI (got the suit already)
--make reservations for reception dinner
--make reservations for our hotel room
--figure out how long we''ll be there

I think that''s it...I''m sure there is more but I can''t think of anything else at the moment. Oh well, I have 11 months...
