Cold winter night. Blind double date. Dave & Busters. Who would have thought that this is where I would meet my future husband. I was with my girlfriend and her boyfriend and after much stalking on Facebook Drew finally got my friend to bring me out on this day in 2008. I think what created the connection was the bold step I took and walked right up to him, shook his hand and said Hi, I'm Diana (with a smile J). What can I say, it was love after that.

Four years later we plan a trip to Florida where we could get away for a few days. He said that he got this great deal on Groupon where we could ride in a hot air balloon- Sure! It's on my bucket list anyway! Nevertheless I had to wake up at 4 a.m. to get to Tampa for the sunrise flight. We're on the balloon and I cannot even describe the peaceful feeling that overcomes one when you are just floating over morning fog watching the trees and lakes sparkle. Drew starts out by saying, "where does this rank amongst all the things we've done together?". I reply, "pretty up there..." all while wondering why is he getting so serious in front of Fred, our pilot. That was Drew's first attempt. He points to my left, "look over there", I say "yes a swamp?". Fred delightfully points out, "it's the heart shaped lake" and by now I see it. Poor Drew made his second attempt at his speech, but I started to interview Fred about his family life etc. We keep sailing across and he tries again but Fred uses the gas burner and blocks all sound. Finally Drew, a little frustrated turns and asks Fred, "could you give me a minute without the fire!" Fred replies, "sure, but if we go down..." From there he was down on one knee and he finally got to say his entire speech. We land and he finishes off by telling me about the 5 star dinner reservations that he made for that evening. Dinner was exquisite but it didn't end there. We travelled to Miami and I found 18 long stemmed red roses (he's never given me RED roses before) waiting in my room for me. To top it off he also booked a massage for me at the luxurious hotel spa-

If I didn't have this rock on my finger I would think it was just a dream!

Picking my wedding dress from Best for Bride was completely painless. I was a little discouraged at first and wasn't loving the dress. Everyone wanted me to choose when the sales associate Natalia asked me if I had tried on a certain dress. When I responded "no", she told me to try it on and that it was going to be my dress. She was right!! I was crying before I left the changeroom, and once my mom and wedding party saw it and started crying I knew I had found the dress. I kept losing weight leading up until the wedding and alterations was great, fitting the dress exactly how I wanted it. When I walked down the aisle and my husband started to cry I knew then just how perfect the dress was. Thank you so much for making me feel like a princess on my wedding day!!!!

Sincerely,
Melissa Filice

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,
Carolyn
