My fiance and I met three years ago on Christmas Day, at my aunt's house. He was friends with one of my cousins, and agreed to dress up as Santa Claus and come hand out all the gifts to my family. I had never met him before this day, and was just as surprised as my little cousins when this mystery Santa walked down the stairs. Nevertheless, I didn't think anything of it at the time; however he had noticed me from a far, and asked my cousin who I was. A blind date was arranged, and the rest is history. So Christmas Day has always been special to us. Even so, I had no idea that he was ever thinking of proposing on Christmas Day, 2010. The proposal happened that day, around 6 at night. On Christmas Day, we normally spend the afternoon at my aunt's house, and then we leave around 6 or so and go over to my fiance's house to see his family. This year was the same. We spent the afternoon at my aunt's house, and then said goodbye to my whole family around 5:45, to leave to go to my fiance's house. As we are driving to his house, we pass by a park that was on the way. This parkette is so beautiful in the wintertime, because the City puts up christmas lights on all the trees, and plays music, and has other decorations as well. We discovered it 3 years ago, and we always make a point to go walking through it in the winter. As we're passing by, my fiance asks if I want to go take a walk in there before we go to his house. It was funny because at first I said "no, we're going to be late to your house!" (I hate being late, especially if people are waiting for us), but little did I know what he had planned! I end up agreeing to go for a walk, so we park and begin to walk into the little parkette. There were some arches all covered in lights that you could walk through, kind of like a tunnel. We began to walk through those, and as we're getting further into the parkette I see these signs (homemade), that say "Will You Marry Me" in Christmas lights!! Even though I am staring right at them, I still did NOT think they were for me, so I just say "Oh my gosh, that's soooooo nice!!!!", thinking that some guy had made that for his girlfriend, and I thought it was so romantic. As I'm looking at this sign, I then see that my fiance is taking out a ring and getting down on one knee... and then it FINALLY hits me what is happening! It was so crazy! I was so shocked, and just kept saying "oh my god" about 15 times before anything else could come out! I was totally blindsighted, he got me good!! Moreover, I was so surprised that he was able to keep it a secret. Apparantly he had been working on these signs for a couple of weeks, and even his brothers and my cousin were helping him through the process. They all kept the secret very well. Our proposal was beautiful, better than I could have ever imagined. After I was able to compose myself, we took some pictures of the sign, and then went back to my aunt's house (because he promised my parents that he would bring me back). We celebrated there for a bit, after everyone wiped away their tears; and then went to his house, where his family was waiting there too. Everyone was so excited, and I was so glad to have been able to celebrate with both families right after it happened.

Hi Best for Bride,

I would just like to thank all the staff at Best For Bride in Etobikoke for helping my daughter and I find what we were looking for. I can't remember the ladies name that was helping us at the time but she was a tall woman and I believe her name began with a D. My daughter bought her wedding dress there and I bought my dress there as well. We were impressed with the wide selection of dresses that you had to chose from. I looked at so many dresses in other places as the mother of the bride and could not find anything that was suitable. My daughter and I exhausted every wedding shop in London Ontario and could not find the perfect dress. We went to a few places in Mississauga and Toronto and could not find the perfect dress until we visited Best For Bride and that is where she and I found the right dresses for us. Attached is a couple of photos of her day and the dresses we bought from you.

Thanks again,
Wayne

Dear Best for Bride,

I wanted to thank you so very much for the beautiful dresses I purchased from you this Fall 2009 from the Etobicoke store! Everyone who assisted me with my dress were extremely kind and helpful, especially the seamstress who helped me with my fitting! I am so glad that I found your website online, and I recommend you to everyone! Photos is the bridal dress and the bridesmaids

Thank you,

Dear Olga and the Best for Bride Team,

Thank you for the dream wedding dress.

I found here great selection of wedding dresses at most reasonable prices. You do not need to see another store. Shopping at BfB is a wonderful experience, and be prepared to spend here close to three hours trying on those wonderful dresses. Bring in your bridesmaids and the whole extended family to make this experience even more pleasurable and festive (just like in those shows on TV). Lucy was my shopping associate helping me to find THE RIGHT DRESS. You can say that: "I love Lucy". She is a good listener and she always brings the exact dress that I wanted to try on next. It certainly seems that she knows the whole inventory by heart. She is brutally honest with her opinions which are of great help. You can trust her point of view. The major assets of this store are: Lucy, endless inventory of dresses, reasonable prices, and the overall customer service. I found the dream dress that fits for the occasion of a lifetime.

Thank you.

Elena P.

Samantha Gumbrell - Renting Wedding Dress on a very fixed budget

Tell us about your experience at Best for Bride.
OK. My name is Sam and I came to Best for Bride very very nervous and anxious and as soon as I walked in the door Denise and Donna were so helpful and they said that I was not going to leave this place without finding the dress of my dreams and they were absolutely correct. I think it was the seventh dress that I tried on and I knew right away that is was the dress that I was going to wear for my special date and they gave me the option for rental because I was on a very fixed budget and the rental was great because it was the dress that I wanted and I knew that I could afford it. And so I was very very happy.
