This is the story of Karen and Peter, we have been together for close to 7 years and we have 3 beautiful daughters together. He asked me to be his wife on my birthday when I was expecting our first child. I was surprised, he always said he wants to spend his life with me, even if we're just sitting on the couch, watching tv and eating dinner or playing in the park with our children. He said he would be honored to spend even one more day with me. That's how you know he's a great husband, a great man is the man that doesn't think he deserves you and does everything to try to. A great wife is the same thing. Now I have been engaged for 5 years, and the only reason we haven't gotten married yet is because I do not believe in spending a lot of money on one day, I'd rather put that money on a house or our children. (Which are 4, 14 months and 2 months old) but I really want to be his Mrs. and as much as I would love to have a great beautiful wedding and a gorgeous dress, I feel like spending too much is unrealistic on something that wouldn't be worn again unless my daughters would like to (which has always been a dream for me)
I want to the big wedding without the big budget, I know that irrational, but its true hahahaha.
Anyways, we meet each other through a sales company and I had an idea he was interested in me but we had both just got out of bad relationships so didn't try to pursue it right away. We sat next to each other and we had switched desks because I wanted the window seat and one day when I was making a sale, I went under my desk (sometimes i went under my desk for more quite) when I looked up, I seen that he had written Peter + Karen = Love, just like the teenagers, I thought it was adorable. Two years later, he's asking me to be continue to be the best thing that has ever happened to him for the rest of our lives and I said yes of course! Nearly 5 years later, we are doing it this November! This month I am hoping to go and get my dress and I would really love to win this contest, as we also are buying our bridesmaids dresses, since they are my step daughters! So I hope you all vote for us and help save this young family some money!! Thanks :)
So Kristina tell me about your experience at Best For Bride.
It has been fantastic. You Donna have been amazing, very personable and you helped us a lot. We got two dresses today for very affordable prices and everyone is very happy including myself and we're so very ecstatic about it.
Thank you so much.
How was your experience at Best For Bride today?
It was perfect. It was very helpful. I am pretty sure I found my dress, I don't know which one but I know I found it. For all of you brides that have no idea what you are looking for you'll be taken care of. It's very comforting and it was a really good experience.
Thanks Denise and everyone from Best for Brides and you have made experience with putting together a wedding in literally four months, AMAZING, EASY

Attached are the pictures of me wearing the dress in the 2010 Miss World Canada Regional pageant.
I was chosen as one of the 10 girls to represent Ontario in the National pageant that took place in Vancouver.
It was a great experience and your dress made it even better!
All the best and I hope to work with you again someday.
My wife and I would like to say a big thank you and our greatest appreciation for all your assistance and help of getting one of the most important items on the wedding planer list - Wedding Dress.
Everything: finding, ordering, delivering, fitting and alterations were done promptly and with a lot of support from the staff. Professionalism and confidence of the employees assured me and specially my fiancé that all will be just fine.
At the end the service and the dress exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend "Best For Bride" to future brides and grooms.
Once again I want to state my appreciation for the service and special thanks to Olga.
