The Reception..

I'm so excited that I thought I'd add a few pics of what my reception is going to look like...or close to it anyway...

This is the kind of lighting I'll have, but I'll have it changing throughout the night.  Brighter for dinner and speeches and darker for the dancing part.  I can actually have it where it will automatically vary throughout the night to different colours.
I'll be having the swag on the ceiling there, the chair covers will be the fitted licra ones rather than the ones they have there.  The pink will be paler too.
This is the centrepiece I'm having only it will have lights in the branches and I THINK I may have a light in the base as well...I don't know yet.  I'll have a mirrored thing that it will sit on too. 
This is what my bridal table will hopefully look like.

So Excited about my Wedding.

Well things are coming along...slowly.  I got my corset lingerie and my Tiara last week.  And I'm about to order my wedding dress and petticoat.  I have a mixture of excitement and nerves here as I'm getting the dress from ebay. 

I know, I's not the wisest choice but I've heard great things about it and it's cheap but not cheap looking.  My own sister got her dress from ebay and loved it, it fit perfectly and was well made.  I've heard a few other people who were happy with their dresses also.  And when you think about it, all those dresses in the shops are made in the same factories...just without the huge markups.

So I've chosen the dress...I've checked out the seller, I've read all their reviews and I'm about 98% confident that it's going to be alright.  It's just that 2% that has me a tad worried but I'm willing to risk it...for the price.

So this is happening next week and I'll get my dress about 6 or so weeks after that, and according to the reviews it may even be exciting!!!!

So at the moment, I'm trawling through pictures of hairstyles I want and I think I've narrowed it down to something like this....


I'll have a tiara and a 2 tiered cathedral veil (yes I'm going all out) and the second tier can be removed for the reception so it's not annoying - that's what I like about it.  I wonder how difficult the hairstyle is?  I haven't chosen my stylist yet but their prices seem to vary according to the difficulty of the style, and I have no idea what constitutes difficult and easy LOL

Actually what I might do is email these pics...yeh that'd be the best way.

*sigh* this is all getting so exciting...I can't stop thinking about it all!!!
