Mandy and Marcus Fairytale Engagement Story

You cannot vote for this story anymore, as this story participated in constest that ended on January 31, 2011



My Fiance is a member of the Canadian Armed Forces and was preparing for deployment to Afghanistan. I had just lost my Dad and had the year from hell, beginning college as a mature student and preparing for Marcus' departure. I took a summer job to help pay for my schooling, leaving little time to spend with Marcus before he had to deploy.

We had been together for 3 years and have had the time of our lives exploring Alberta and living in Toronto and were soon to be heading to Paris, England, Scotland & Ireland during his down time from Afghanistan . We were having a family gathering re-shingling my Mom's roof and a birthday party for myself, my niece and nephew that I had arranged and wasn't able to attend. Little did I know that my Mom had called my boss and told her of the plans for that afternoon and getting me the afternoon off.

Before Marcus left for training when my Dad was sick; Marcus snuck back to my house and asked my Daddy for permission to marry me fearing he might not have another chance. Marcus' fear proved to be true. We lost my Dad in April. During the afternoon of the birthday party on July 5th (my birthday) Marcus asked me to go for a walk. He took me down to the lake to a rock overlooking the gorgeous sunset on Lake Couchiching - the exact spot where my Dad had proposed to my Mom. We sat down and talked for a while reminisced about my Dad. I suggested we head back before we lost the sun completely unless there was anything else and never suspecting a thing.

Marcus said that there was and then started to get up and repositioned himself onto one knee and asked me - will you do me the honor of becoming my wife; Mandy will you marry me?

In the same spot my Dad almost dropped my Mom's ring in the lake Marcus knelt there trembling as I bawled my eyes out and he had to ask 'is that a yes?'

Cindy Brown Found Bridesmaid Dresses and Wedding Gown

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.

Lise Renaud tells a little story

Hi my name is Lise Renaud. I just have a little story to tell. I came here a couple weeks ago looking for a a wedding dress for my future daughter in law who lives up north in a remote area and she doesn't have access to any stores so I as a good future mother in law decided to come and I came and this when ... I came into this store this wonderful young lady named Taylor was here and she had the biggest smile She said: "May I help you" and I told her the predicament ... future daughter in law, pregnant, getting marrying in June, has a limited budget and she found the most beautiful dress because I had the picture of my future daughter in law was interested in and it was so close to this dress so Taylor went on to the computer and phoned out if it comes in white or beige she did, it did, she told me: "Yes we would have it on time". She said me how we should have her measured and I would come in the next day to order it and I did. And I just came today to say thank you to Taylor cause were so happy.
