My fiancé and I have recently gotten engaged and I would like to share our story. Let me start by telling you a bit about us. We met on October 30th, 2010 while we were walking our dogs in High Park ( a dog park in Toronto). We connected instantly and I moved in with him shortly after. Everything has been amazing since, even our dogs are in love. The day he proposed was September 18th,2011. The day started with him waking me up to serve me breakfast in bed. Upon opening my eyes I realized the entire from was covered in rose petals and lit candles everywhere. It was the most romantic thing he has ever done. When I asked what this was all about he just said "because I love you so much". After eating he told me to get ready for a day I'll never forget. We left the house at 10. Little did I know we were going horseback riding! As we pulled up to the ranch I was flabbergasted. I hadn't been horseback riding before and he knew it was something I've wanted to do since I was 5. After that we drove back to Toronto and went to the restaurant we had our first date at for lunch. A quiet little Italian restaurant named Villa. It was a good as I remembered. When we finished lunch he said we should take the dogs for a walk before going home for the day. We walked through high park with the dogs, as we talked about the first wonderful day we met. As we were walking through the trails he stopped and pulled me close to him. It was the spot where we first layed eyes on eachother. We stood there holding eachother for a few minutes and he started talking, he said; "a year ago if you asked me if I believe in soulmates I would have laughed, then 11 months ago I met you and that all changed. Waking up next to you, seeing you smile every morning is like a dream come true. I would be honoured to spend the rest of my life with you .... Will you marry me?" Up until the point where he started kneeling down I had no idea what he was doing. I was wondering why he was shaking so much, he was very nervous. I started crying, extremely happy tears and said "of course I'll marry you!" The dogs came and gave us both huge kisses and he slipped the ring on my finger. We are now happily in the planning stage of our wedding and cannot wait to share our lives together.
How was your experience at Best For Bride today?
It was perfect. It was very helpful. I am pretty sure I found my dress, I don't know which one but I know I found it. For all of you brides that have no idea what you are looking for you'll be taken care of. It's very comforting and it was a really good experience.
So ladies please tell me your experience at Best for Bride?
Unique. We came here after quite a disaster. We have been going through a lot. The wedding has been the last thing on our plate, so we were behind and we came here kind of ... and we managed to find my dress in the first hour that I love and it felt like being on an action show Say Yes to the Dress. Yeah, yeah that's wonderful yeah and it's really nice to have the ladies be there with you, compliment you, trying to find exactly what you need, they know what they are doing and that is just a really great experience. When I get married I definitely coming back here and that's for sure. We definitely coming back. And like mom said, we were going through a lot ... and this is one of those days where everything is so perfect. We came the day before and now tried it on and it fits you so gorgeously. Come here and you'll get your dress and you'll have the Best Experience. The ladies are Amazing. And the prices are good.
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!
Our wedding was on June 30, 2009 in Cuba, at the Melia Las Dunas. We had a beautiful outdoor ceremony...in the 35C heat. But it's ok, we jumped into the ocean and the pool afterward to cool off :) Thank you for helping me make my dress dreams come true (and saving me almost 600$! )
P.S. The dress is still perfect!
I wanted to thank you so very much for the beautiful dress I purchased from you this past summer 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! I just wanted to share some photos from my special day, which took place August 7th 2009 in Victoria BC, and also from my trash the dress sesh that took place the following day (thats right! I got to wear my dress twice!) My dress was from the Mori Lee collection, style 6305.
Thank you all again,
