Wedding countdown: A tux by any other name ...

... is called a suit. But first....

Today on the "Today" show, we all learned the outcome of America's choice for Molly Mouchka's dream wedding dress and, lucky for her, it was the one she wanted. (How terrible would it have been to have to wear some gross dress you hated for your wedding that will be viewed by millions?) The very smart viewers chose a lovely lace Christos gown, strapless, A-line and with the most precious train. Naturally, I think it's a fabulous choice because that's the one I voted for, but I would have been happy with the very chic gown that I have to think came in second and that I would wear, if only to own something by Oscar del la Renta, who makes the most beautiful dresses that I would only be able to purchase if I won the lottery and that always make me sigh with both bliss and envy and about which I can rhapsodize in blog posts for way too long.

Anyway, Sac native Molly expressed some hesitation about its unforgiving fit, and though that girl is totally slim, I don't know any gal who is compeltely sure she can pull off what is basically a really expensive nightgown. So.

This morning, we checked out the various suit options for fiancé Jason, and I hereby encourage you to go to the show's site and vote for the last one. You could totally tell that's the one Molly likes most, and we all know who makes the real decisions when it comes to the groom's attire, and it ain't the groom.

Meanwhile, for those of you looking ahead, here's the schedule for the rest of the show's voting segments:

Wednesday: Bridesmaids dresses
Thursday: The cake
Friday: The ring
Monday: Molly's hairstyle
Next Tuesday: The honeymoon, Part 1
Oct. 4: The honeymoon, Part 2
Oct. 5: The rehearsal
Oct. 6: The wedding!

We'll be back here at 21Q to update and dish. And look for our upcoming story in Scene, where we talk to some of Molly's friends and family.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
