I originally wanted to have the shower at a restaurant, but it's looking like I'll have to do something less formal and at home.

What are the top 5 questions to ask when you’re searching for the perfect reception site?
Answer From Sharon:
When you picture your dream reception site, no doubt you’re envisioning a beautiful ballroom, or perhaps a flower-filled garden.
