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 :)

My experience with Best for Bride was quite positive over all. I found employees to be quite friendly. I found the service fast and efficient, both when choosing the dress and when doing alterations. I was extremely satisfied with the dress that I bought. Last, but not least, your prices can't be beat!
I've attached a photo from our wedding day that shows off most of the dress. I hope you'll like it.
So tell me about your experience at Barrie Best for Bride.
When I walked in they were very welcoming and greeting and it is so beautiful and big store and able to go and take a look at all the dresses and styles and go and actually pick some out ourselves that we would like to try on instead of having consultant just pick ones for you. And very comfortable, very big, open spaces, able to look and try different things. And plenty of time, no pressure, a lot of time to take a look around, try on all different dresses that I wanted to. Everything was great and really wonderful.
And we FOUND THE DRESS.
Yeah, we found the dress.
I love to shovel because I just spent I don't know how many hours at Best for Brides.
So tell us why you came to Best for Bride?
I'm on a very strict budget and I honestly didn't think that I was gonna find anything that I could afford and I saw online that this offered the most variety and I think for the best prices. I was so surprised.
So your experience was good?
Oh my gosh. Beyond good. It started all a little rough because I didn't know what I wanted I did not know what style. Donna came in and she just took over. In the end it's amazing how it happened because Donna just took the best in every dress I have tried on and put it all in one and I couldn't have asked for anything better. I am so over the moon happy right now I could cry again. Ah yeah the far better than I have ever expected this experience to be. So thank you Donna. Thank you Best for Brides because it's has been absolutely incredible. I didn't come expecting to find a dress and here we are ... going home happy.
