Taylor and Josh Disney Engagement followed by a Rainstorm

Josh spent 2 months in Kissimmee, FL with his Aunt Terri and Uncle Steve (Dalton, Paiton, Carter) interning at the City of Kissimmee Parks and Recreation Department. I was busy at home working at 2 restaurants and planned a trip to to Kissimmee to see Josh over the 4th of July weekend. Josh had planned the whole weekend and I was so excited to see him. We planned on going to Disney World on Friday, the beach Saturday and Sunday, shopping till we dropped on Monday, it was going to be perfect. Instead, we spent some of Friday at Disney World, Saturday and Sunday in the hospital, Monday on the couch, and Some light shopping on Tuesday before I left to go back to Holland. Here is the story.....

Friday we woke up and went to Disney with Steve, Terri, Dalton, Paiton, and Carter. After spending the morning on rides, Josh, Steve, and Dalton went on Space Mountain one last time. This time was not so fun though and Steve lost his Oakley sunglasses. While Steve and Terri spent some time looking for the glasses, Josh, myself, and the kids went and looked around various shops. While in the Space Mountain shop, unknowingly to me, Josh made a Mickey Mouse necklace (this will come into play later).

We went for lunch and Josh was starting to not feel too well, he didn't eat but after sitting for a while felt good enough to get up and walk again. We made our way to another part of the park and on our way we passed by Cinderella's Castle. I was walking ahead of Josh and I felt something around my neck. I turned around to see what was going on and noticed a Mickey Mouse head on a necklace. I flipped the necklace around and read what was inscribed on the back, it said

"Marry Me July 1, 2011"

I turned around to look at Josh and he was down on one knee, with a little blue velvet box holding the most perfect diamond ring! All I remember is throwing my hands up over my mouth and gasping for air. There I stood in front of Cinderella's Castle with my best friend down on one knee! How perfect is that?! To make it even more perfect, there was no one within 20 ft of us in both directions. It's like the crowd parted and made a spotlight for the most perfect moment of my life. I don't even remember what he said, I just remember him putting the ring on my finger and him hugging me! It was perfect! We were engaged and not less than a minute later, it started to rain. This rain was a foreshadowing of the next couple of days! I was the happiest person in the whole park but little did I know, Josh was feeling sicker and sicker. We spent the next couple of hours moseying around the park before Josh had to stop and sit down. He was in so much pain and we eventually had to leave the park earlier then we were planning on. Once we got home Josh immediately went to sleep and by 7am he was in so much pain we had to go to the ER. Josh was admitted from the ER and needed and appendectomy. I spent the next 10 hours in the waiting room as Josh waited in pre-op for 8 hours. He spent the night in the hospital where I stayed and slept in the chair next to him. The rest of the vacation was spent in the recovery room and then recovering on the couch. We did not end up going to the beach or shopping as much as I had hoped, I didn't get to lay out and embrace the Florida sun but this mini-vacation was the best of my life!

My experience with Best for Bride was quite positive over all. I found employees to be quite friendly. I found the service fast and efficient, both when choosing the dress and when doing alterations. I was extremely satisfied with the dress that I bought. Last, but not least, your prices can't be beat!
I've attached a photo from our wedding day that shows off most of the dress. I hope you'll like it.

Thanks and take care : )


Hey you guys, take a look!
It was a fantastic day and everyone said I looked amazing and I felt like a real princess for a day.
I'm soooo glad you had this dress, its exactly what I wanted.
The 'shrug', it didn't have arms, it just hung down, looked really cool. It looked like a shawl only it stayed on and was comfortable and covered my arms. It was perfect.
I havn't got the official wedding pics back but thought I'd send this one.

Thanks again!
Mrs.Jodi Bazzul


Dear Olga,
I would like to say how much I enjoyed using your company to order my bridesmaids dresses from.
From the first contact I had immediate responses from you with answers to my enquiries regarding sizes, colour, cost delivery- everything was answered that day or the day after due to the time difference.
When I called the shop I got a very good response as well- cannot fault anything about the ordering process.
Very straight forward and easy to do as you supported me and helped me with all my enquiries.
I was kept in contact the whole time waiting for my dresses so there was no worry that they were not going to be here on time - which is a bit of a concern when I order something from the internet and especially something so important but I felt very confident I had chosen the best company to buy them from.
When the dresses came I was delighted with them! They were absolutely perfectly made and even more lovely than in the picture! They were slightly crushed as I had 2 dresses in a small box but the creases fell out overnight and the dresses were stunning. My bridesmaids loved them and looked absolutely beautiful on our day
I was so proud of them and everyone commented at how beautiful they looked. You can see in the pictures just how lovely they were.
It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Olga throughout my order and she could not have been more helpful and more prompt at replying to my emails and enquiries. I'm not sure who I spoke to on the phone but they were helpful too.
Overall I experienced an absolute delightful customer service and excellent quality of dresses and made our wedding day just that extra bit special
Many thanks for all your help and I will be recommending you to all of my friends

Best wishes,
