    The back of the dress is longer, but it's not a train since I'm tall and the dress isn't that long. So it basically just hits the bottom of the shoes in the back, but doesn't drag on the ground.

    Can you take a picture of the back?

    BTW, did you look on ideeli today? Tons of bridal stuff. Might be a little late to order something though. They have cute hair accessories.

    Ok so I bought a third dress, lol. I went to Saks to return the first dress, and my mom had a couple dresses to return as well. So we were upstairs in the dress salon and I saw this long white dress. The girl said, "OMG I love that dress you should try it on." So I did, but it wasn't doing anything for me. Then I saw this other dress that I fell in love with. It basically has everything I wanted, so I tried it on and totally fell in love with it. I also tried on this beautiful pink Badgley Mischka dress, which I totally loved, but it wasn't wedding enough:

    So, dress #2 is being returned. I totally wasn't planning on looking for something else, but when I saw it, I was in love, so I got it, lol. A little less than 5 weeks until the big day, getting excited!

    Ok so things are basically done - so here's proof you don't need a year to plan a wedding, lol.

    The cake is going to look something like this (I hope, if they do it right):


    And then this is the cake topper we picked:

    Ok so only 10 more days!

    Everything is ordered, paid for, and ready to go! We leave to go home to VA in a week, then next Thursday I get my hair and make up trial done, spray tan that night, and then my manicure on Friday.

    Today I bought my hair piece:
    Bridal silver ivory flower rhinestone wire wrapped by Calicogarden
    il_570xN.220410601&#4.jpgil_570xN.220410038&#4.jpg

    And also got a Land's End tote bag with my new initials, so I can use it on the wedding day to put all of my stuff in. Then I can bring it to the beach with us! It will look something like below, I had to photoshop in the initials because they don't show you what your bag will look like with the monogram you pick. I'm planning on using my maiden name as a second middle name, but of course they don't let you have two middle names on most American forms, so I think most of the time I will just be AEL instead of AECL.

    Some people just get rid of their middle name entirely and make their maiden name their middle name. I thought about doing that (rather than hyphenating or something else), but then decided not to. Just did the plain old last name change. LOL! Boy what a pain that was too. You have to take your marriage license to the social security office to get a new card, then take that to the DMV to change your drivers license, then you have to change your name on all your accounts. Look at me, I'm rambling.

    I love your hair piece Alex!

    I know I'm totally dreading doing all the name change stuff. Going to the SSA will be so annoying, because I know we'll have to get there like an hour before it opens to get seen relatively quickly. So I'll have to wait to get back the marriage license certified copy before we can go do any of that. But since Matt works for JPMorganChase he can just change all of the Chase bank stuff for me, I don't need to go do it myself.

    I'm getting excited, but I think I'll be more excited once we get home next week. Then it will feel more real, haha. I think I'm just nervous to make sure everything is going to go together, because at this point it's all pieces, but I want to make sure everything is how I want it on the day.

    Ah yes, the stress of making sure everything is just right. Remember, no matter how much you plan and how well put together you think things are, something will most likely go wrong. LOL! But if you keep that in mind and remember to just take everything in stride, then everything will still be perfect. Plus you'll have something to look back on and laugh about.
