Sebastien and I met online in November of 2009. We clicked right away since we are both pretty laid back and simple. I have been on my own since i was 18 and he has had to take care of his mother for a few years so we have not been able to save on our own let alone for a wedding. This is why I knew it would take a long time to get a ring from him even though we did talk about one day getting married.

After our one year aniversary passed, I figured it would take another year for us to get engaged. I always told him that whenever he did ask me, I wanted it to be a complete surprise. Not on any special days, or holidays, I want to know nothing about it and I don't want to choose my ring. It's all on him!

On January 18th 2011, we went to a comedy club called Second City. We have gone there for every show they have had, and that was our first date as well. On that day, we got there about an hour early because we went straight from work. So we sat at the bar for a bit and I noticed that the tickets said VIP on them. Don't ask me why but I did not think much of it, I just thought it was VIP because he got the tickets from a special website. So the show goes on, we laugh histerically as usual. After the show, the actors take a 5 minute break and always come back to do some improv that you can stay and watch. Like every other time, we stayed. The improv starts and since we were in the front row, we got chosen to go up on stage. The scene starts with all the girls on one side and all the guys in one side. The girls start talking about the things they find annoying about their boys and I say "my guy snores! so loud!". Then the guys cut us off and one says "do you snore?" and someone else says "I don't snore but more like yell in the middle of my sleep". Sebastien says "Night terrors!". So the guy said "what do you do to fix it the next day? when she is mad about it." So Sebastien starts to say something and the guys say "show us! what do you do?" So Sebastien gets up, talks to the audience and says "you say sorry first.... and if that doesn't work... " he walks towards me and says "you ask her to marry you" and the gets down on one knee and in front of everyone says "Laura... will you marry me". I look at the audience, I look at him and say "are you being serious right now????" Everyone laughs and finally I nod yes. I couldn't even speak!

It turns out he contacted the stage manager about two weeks in advanced and told him what he wanted to do. The actors knew everything as well. I had no idea!!! He didn't seem different, he was cool and calm it was the middle of the week. I mean usually people do this on weekends! Everyone I told was shocked, cause they were not expecting it either. I would tell everyone that the poor guy couldn't afford a ring right now. Well not only did he get me a ring... he got me a Tiffany's ring!!! He did an amazing job!!! He said because our meeting story is not much, he wanted our engagement story to be unique and special. He got that right!

Dear Best for Bride,

I had a wonderful experience shopping for a wedding gown at your store (Etobicoke location).

I was very short in time, but your professional staff helped me to find a perfect dress, matching veil and accessories and make all necessary alterations just in time for my special day. The time I've spent in the store will always remain a part of my memories of my amazing wedding.

Thank you again!

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.
