Our Reception has changed to a different location due to a double booking that was not our flaut. Our ceremony and reception is now in seperate places.We are now having our reception in a resturant function center called Pier One at our local Panthers Club.The picture below is the room done up but my colours on the tables and chairs will be purple,pink and silver.

I have ordered this dress off ebay and it is being custom made, I have a friend at work who is a dress maker and she did the measurements for me so everything is right. I did buy a second hand dress off Ebay orginally that required alterations and I decided that I didn't want to wear it. So this is the dress I am having made, I am so excited I can't wait till it gets here and I can try it on !!!!
