I first met Neena on April 16, 2010 during a production of her dance company at Markham Theatre. Neena is a leading Indian Classical Dancer and Assistant Artistic Director for the largest Classical Dance Company in Canada.

I had never attended such a show or visited the theatre myself. We began to see each other after that and the relationship progressed very well. About 10 months later, I was thinking strongly of proposing but wanted to do something memorable. I got the idea that I wanted to propose to her under the guise of a show that I had created, and I wanted to do it at Markham Theatre where we first met. I was able to rent the theatre out for the proposal. I made up posters and booklets for the play 'Six Questions' that designed - the Who/What/Where/Why/When and How of proposing to Neena! I made a video that was this play, which ended by asking her to come on stage.

I made it professional by sending out posters and making program booklets available at showtime. I enlisted the help of her friend who taught me how to propose using the hand gestures that are used by Indian Classical dancers during their shows.

Neena arrived to an empty house, but the usher was amazing at getting Neena into the theatre and sitting her down. The video played and she came on stage at the end. I came out and shocked her with my dance moves and she said yes!

I have never had any training before and have zero artistic ability, so pulling this all off required months of work but it was worth it all in the end.

We have it on video!



Thanks for hearing out story on proposing to a dancer!

- Alex and Neena

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,
Cathe Hruboksa

Hi there,

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!?

Thanks again Max and Kayla Kueper

When I was looking for the bridal gown, Best for Bride Toronto was the first salon I walked in. The first - and the only one.

I think I tried on over dozen of gowns, and Alla was helping me with my fitting and the little details.

Consultants were patient and helpful, the fittings went great, and it was easy to make appointments that fitted my schedule.
My dress was amazing and reasonably priced.

Thank you so much for helping make my wedding the best day of my life!
Yulia

Miranda Grey had a Phenomenal Experience

So Miranda, tell us about your experience at Best for Bride.
It's been phenomenal. I have come in. I did not really have much an idea of what I wanted. The girls were able to pick off the shelves, kind of twick what my preferences were and tell me what body shape was going to work best for me.
In general, they were just totally patient with me. The whole experience was phenomenal and I cannot wait to come back and be fitted for my dress. Wonderful, thank you so much.
