My name is Sabrina and my boyfriend proposed to me July 23 2010.
This is how it happened....
We had plans to go camping with a group of friends, but he said he had prior plans that we could not pass up, at last minute he told me the plans fell through but how bout the 2 of us just go camping. I had no idea where we were going with a canoe...I was a little concerned. We loaded the canoe with our camping gear and paddled to an island where we had to portage (unload everything and carry it, and the canoe to another spot, then reload everything) we ended up in a beautiful peaceful lake. We could choose any camping spot we wanted, I spotted one that caught me eye with a gorgeous view of the lake. We set up our site then went sight seeing, came back and he cooked a wonderful "camping dinner" over the fire, penne, my favourite!! that night we sat around the fire talking and listening to music, he then put on "our song"..."You say it best" by Allison Kraus then disappeared for a few minutes, he then called me over...as I walked over to him I could see candles burning...as I got closer I noticed they were lit in the shape of a heart and there was a ring in the middle, I looked over at him with tears in my eyes and he was down on one knee! he took my hand and spilled his heart and asked me to be his wife...I said yes. The rest of the night was filled with romantic words. That weekend was very physically straining due to the portaging, but in the end it was well worth it.
So tell me about your experience at Barrie Best for Bride.
It was amazing. I came in just to look. My wedding is still 14 months away so I just kind of came in to get an idea and bridesmaid colors and designs and ended up finding my bridesmaid dresses as well as my wedding dress. The staff was amazing. They were really helpful at sizing. They were really helpful with the pricing and they were amazing with my bridesmaids. One of them was getting emotional and they were amazing helping there as well.
It is just highly recommended. I absolutely loved it.
Thank you so much.
You are very welcome.
How was your experience at Best For Bride today?
It was amazing, the staff were very helpful, they have a very huge selection and they will help you with anything that you need, tell you a honest opinion about the dress and they will come up with different options to ones that you don't even think that you will like and that's what happened to me. I saw one, didn't think I liked it, put it on and I'm getting it. So they are extremely helpful here and there is a huge selection of dresses.
Thank you very much.
Ladies please tell me about your experience at Best For Bride.
Our experience was just amazing, the ladies here were extremely helpful. They even picked out a dress for you but you didn't even think will look great and it just was amazing. They were very helpful, very personable. I would definitely recommend this store to all my friends. Yeah, pretty much you summed it all up in those words. I never would have put that dress on me and she just said "Put it on" and I loved it and I stood in it for I think half an hour and I definitely love it and it's gonna look amazing like in the color that we want to be for your wedding and the help we got has been the best I have seen so far. It's has been perfect. Being the bride was definitely a great experience. It was kind of experience you always dream of ... going in and getting all the help. If you have ever seen "Say Yes to the Dress" Kleinfeld, it's like that in Canada. You get to come in (but more polite) and more personal. It's a small cute little store you get pampered pretty much and that's what everyone wants but they are not pushy. No. No.
Thank you so much ladies.
My daughter's graduation was in June 2009. We looked all over for a dress in a style that my daughter wanted, but also within my budget.
Best for Bride had exactly what my daughter wanted within my price point. When the dress came, it was perfect!
Sorry I haven't got back to you guys sooner. Thank you so much for the amazing help at the store I definitely found the best dress at your store and it looked gorgeous! I was also impressed because many other stores that we visited, that had higher price points, provided us with less than acceptable service. So I was glad we visited you at Best for Brides!?
Thank you for altering my dress so it was a perfect fit. I got many compliments at my wedding and several people asked for your information. I'm sure they will be coming to see you soon. I was hoping to send you a real photo but I don't have any prints yet. Find attached a picture from the wedding.
