Josh spent 2 months in Kissimmee, FL with his Aunt Terri and Uncle Steve (Dalton, Paiton, Carter) interning at the City of Kissimmee Parks and Recreation Department. I was busy at home working at 2 restaurants and planned a trip to to Kissimmee to see Josh over the 4th of July weekend. Josh had planned the whole weekend and I was so excited to see him. We planned on going to Disney World on Friday, the beach Saturday and Sunday, shopping till we dropped on Monday, it was going to be perfect. Instead, we spent some of Friday at Disney World, Saturday and Sunday in the hospital, Monday on the couch, and Some light shopping on Tuesday before I left to go back to Holland. Here is the story.....
Friday we woke up and went to Disney with Steve, Terri, Dalton, Paiton, and Carter. After spending the morning on rides, Josh, Steve, and Dalton went on Space Mountain one last time. This time was not so fun though and Steve lost his Oakley sunglasses. While Steve and Terri spent some time looking for the glasses, Josh, myself, and the kids went and looked around various shops. While in the Space Mountain shop, unknowingly to me, Josh made a Mickey Mouse necklace (this will come into play later).
We went for lunch and Josh was starting to not feel too well, he didn't eat but after sitting for a while felt good enough to get up and walk again. We made our way to another part of the park and on our way we passed by Cinderella's Castle. I was walking ahead of Josh and I felt something around my neck. I turned around to see what was going on and noticed a Mickey Mouse head on a necklace. I flipped the necklace around and read what was inscribed on the back, it said
"Marry Me July 1, 2011"
I turned around to look at Josh and he was down on one knee, with a little blue velvet box holding the most perfect diamond ring! All I remember is throwing my hands up over my mouth and gasping for air. There I stood in front of Cinderella's Castle with my best friend down on one knee! How perfect is that?! To make it even more perfect, there was no one within 20 ft of us in both directions. It's like the crowd parted and made a spotlight for the most perfect moment of my life. I don't even remember what he said, I just remember him putting the ring on my finger and him hugging me! It was perfect! We were engaged and not less than a minute later, it started to rain. This rain was a foreshadowing of the next couple of days! I was the happiest person in the whole park but little did I know, Josh was feeling sicker and sicker. We spent the next couple of hours moseying around the park before Josh had to stop and sit down. He was in so much pain and we eventually had to leave the park earlier then we were planning on. Once we got home Josh immediately went to sleep and by 7am he was in so much pain we had to go to the ER. Josh was admitted from the ER and needed and appendectomy. I spent the next 10 hours in the waiting room as Josh waited in pre-op for 8 hours. He spent the night in the hospital where I stayed and slept in the chair next to him. The rest of the vacation was spent in the recovery room and then recovering on the couch. We did not end up going to the beach or shopping as much as I had hoped, I didn't get to lay out and embrace the Florida sun but this mini-vacation was the best of my life!

Our experience today was FANTASTIC. We found the dress and the staff was very friendly and accomodating and helpful.
Awesome, thank you so much for coming in.
So today I tried on a lot of different dresses. Everyone had a lot of patience with me since there are were a lot of dresses. It's was a lot of fun though, it's really relaxed atmosphere, it was nice, I felt comfortable here and we had a lot of fun and laughs and jokes. It was really great and I FOUND MY DRESS.
That's great and congratulations and what did you think?

Thanks Denise and everyone from Best for Brides and you have made experience with putting together a wedding in literally four months, AMAZING, EASY
I don't even know what to say I am just SO GRATEFUL that you had the patience to help me to get through this SO THANK YOU.
Thank you so much for your help with my bridesmaids dresses. The assistance was brilliant (hence why I came to you to buy the dresses and did not buy them from Scotland where we live!) I was always kept up to date on the progress of the dresses as well as being given the opportunity to twice send the dresses back and order other sizes. My bridesmaids looked wonderful and everyone commented how lovely their dresses were.
I would recommend using your company to all of my friends in the future. Best of luck for the future and please find pictures attached.
My wedding was Aug. 22, 2009 and as promised here are is a photo of me in
my Mori Lee :) The two lovely ladies that helped me were so great and
helpful, and not pushy or pretentious like other stores. I found the dress
for me and was very happy that I was able to rent it for a very reasonable
Thank you very much for all your help and patience, you made it fun :)
Best For Bride, and specifically Olga was very helpful when I was ordering the dress for my niece. She was very helpful when I had questions in respect to the sizing. I was able to pay with my credit card and it was hassle free. I live in West Africa and sometimes it is difficult to have things delivered here. The shipping was free and the dress arrived exactly when they said it would arrive. As this was a very positive experience I would recommend Best For Bride to anyone who was thinking of buying a dress off the internet.
