Okay, Fine, I'm THAT Girl

I'm not there yet but when the time comes, my wedding is pretty much planned.  I am very clear on what I want to look like on my wedding day.  (I'm also clear on the invitations, venue, menu, center pieces, bridesmaid dresses, rehearsal dinner, and favors, in case you were wondering.)  I'm driven not by how I want the day to look, but how I want the day to feel.  Every detail has to contribute to making the day feel the way I, um, we, want, and since I'm neither engaged nor planning to be engaged soon (calm down Joe), I won't get into for now the wedding details swirling around in my head, which I may or may not envision and go over in my head when I can't sleep at night.  Mmhmm.  You know what?  I'm not even going to apologize for it.  Okay, it's a little crazy.  But, you guys, you should see the table setting in my head.  It's totally awesome. 

The dress though, has me a little nervous, because even though I can see it in my head, I have yet to ever see it in person, despite hours of watching Say Yes To The Dress, looking at celeb wedding pictures, and occasional perusing online of the collections of my favorite designers.  I want something elegant and timeless.  The closest I've seen to being It was Ivanka Trump's Grace Kelly-inspired custom-designed Vera Wang:

I assume that when Vera reads this, she'll totally call me, but in the meantime, I'm loving this Jim Hjelm (except I would take the flower off the sash):
The unique pleated neckline on this one caught my eye but I think that's the kind of thing you'd regret 50 years from now.  I want something to stand the test of time:

I'm also not completely sold yet on the Save the Date I want to use, but I guess some things can wait until I have a ring on my finger.  Oh, I'm also contemplating making my own wedding cake.  I have my reasons.  Things we can discuss later.

I agree, the neckline on the last one might look pretty now but is not classic. I would be remiss if I did not also point out that she lacks certain...assets that you have which would change the look entirely.
