Brad and Lindsay - Amazing Trip Proposal Story

I knew very early into our relationship that Lindsay was the only one for me. So, when I started working full time out of college I started saving for the ring that I would eventually buy for her. When some friends asked us to join them on a trip to Beaufort I decided I would also use that time to propose to Lindsay. The trip was all planned out and the week we were supposed to leave we suddenly realized we had not made plans for our dog, Sky. Neither of our parents were able to keep Sky that weekend so I suggested we board her. Sky had never been boarded and if you know Lindsay and her love for Sky there was no way we were leaving her in a kennel.

After we had to cancel that trip, I was really disappointed but I couldn't tell her why. So, I immediately started planning another trip for me to propose. We decided to go to Washington DC since Lindsay had never been. We asked our friends, Taylor and Samantha, to join us for a second attempt.

Since I had not been to DC in many years, I had no clue where to propose which made me even more nervous. I rented a limousine for us to "go to dinner" on our first night. I asked the driver to take us by some of the memorials at night so that Lindsay could seen them, but specifically told him to stop at the Jefferson Memorial because I had read how beautiful it is at night. Lindsay was clueless to any of this.

Now let me tell you, when you are planning a proposal on a trip where you are sharing a hotel room things can get tricky. We were leaving for our trip from my parents house since we had been visiting them for Christmas and I had to get my mom to sneak into our room while we were sleeping and stick the ring underneath the lining of my bag. And once we were in DC and leaving for dinner I had to purposely leave my cell phone and wallet in the hotel room so I would have an excuse to run back in the room and grab the ring while everyone was down in the lobby. Luckily, everything went according to plan.

When we arrived at the Jefferson Memorial we all got out and took some pictures. Even as Taylor and Samantha both began getting their cell phone and camera ready to capture the action, Lindsay remained clueless. And when I asked Lindsay to walk down to the water with me, across from the Washington Monument, because that was where I was going to pop the big question, she laughed and said "what are you going to push me in the water?" It was just the comic relief I needed because even after being together almost three years I was so nervous. I don't think either of us really remembers what was said that night, but I told her that I loved her, wanted to spend the rest of my life with her, and then asked her to marry me and she said yes!

It's funny now when we look back in retrospect because there were so many things that should have given her hints at what was about to. For instance, I wanted to be sure that everything was perfect and I had read online that most girls will want to have a manicure when they get engaged because they will be showing off the ring and will want their nails to look nice, so the day before we left for our trip I came up with a clever idea. I asked Lindsay if she wanted to go get pedicures together (she is always trying to convince me to go) so she was thinking that I had finally given in. She got so excited and immediately started getting ready to go. When she was ready to head out the door I told her that I had actually changed my mind but didn't want to let her down completely so I would take her to get a pedicure and manicure if she wanted. Of course she didn't turn the offer down, and she was so thrilled the next night that I had done this.

To the Best for Bride team,

Jordan and I were married on October 11 2009. When he first saw me in my dress, he cried - it must have been all the emotion AND the stunning dress!!! I am so happy to have purchased my wedding dress at Best for Bride because it was an enjoyable process and the result was excellent. I did not feel the need to shop around to other stores because I knew immediately you had a great selection, fair prices and knowledgeable and friendly service. Your staff were helpful as I tried on dress after dress and the final alterations were a perfect fit. Now I am just looking for another occasion to wear this gorgeous dress!

Many thanks,
Jessica Chase

Cindy Brown Found Bridesmaid Dresses and Wedding Gown

So tell me about your experience at Barrie Best for Bride.
It was amazing. I came in just to look. My wedding is still 14 months away so I just kind of came in to get an idea and bridesmaid colors and designs and ended up finding my bridesmaid dresses as well as my wedding dress. The staff was amazing. They were really helpful at sizing. They were really helpful with the pricing and they were amazing with my bridesmaids. One of them was getting emotional and they were amazing helping there as well.
It is just highly recommended. I absolutely loved it.
Thank you so much.
You are very welcome.
