Kelley and Nate - The Drawing That Changed the Life Proposal

Nate and I have known each other since we were thirteen years old. We were always friends throughout middle school and high school, but things changed once we were seventeen. I had never considered dating Nate since he was a year younger than me, but I quickly found out how perfect we were for each other and how much of a balance he was in my life. We dated my junior and senior year of high school. After I graduated I went off to college at the University of South Dakota while he finished his senior year. After Nate graduated he went to college at the University of Moorhead in Minnesota and I was at the University of South Dakota. Even though we were 5 hours apart, our relationship lasted. After his freshman year Nate transferred to the University of South Dakota and we were finally together again.

On August 11th Nate and I went to Minneapolis Minnesota for a weekend away. We had done it the last 4 years so nothing seemed suspicious to me. That day we went to Valleyfair. While we were there Nate asked me to get a character drawing with him so we could frame it and have it as a keepsake once we were older. So we sat down and let a man draw us for about 20 minutes. Once the man drawing us was done he told us that he just had a couple finishing touches to make but he wanted us to see if first. When he turned the drawing towards us to see it had Nate's character with a speech bubble that said "will you marry me" and my character had an empty speech bubble. Once I finally realized what the drawing was asking I looked at Nate and he was down on one knee. He told me that I was his best friend and that the past four years had been the best of his life. He then asked me if I could make the rest of his life as great as the last four years had been. I was so surprised and happy... and I obviously said YES! It was the perfect proposal with the perfect guy. Nate's family was not only able to capture the moment with pictures, but I also have the character drawing framed and hanging in my room as a constant reminder of what an amazing day it was.

Hi best for bride,

Thank you so much for my beautiful bridesmaid dresses. Ordering online was so easy even from Ireland. I received online help from Olga and she was very helpful and supportive. I have already ordered my dress in a store locally when I was recommended to use your site but if I had known that ye also did beautiful wedding dresses I would of changed my mind.
The girls were very happy in their dresses and they looked beautiful in the photos. I would have no hesitation from ordering through your website in the future.

Thanks again,
Deirdre

Dear Best for Bride,

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,
Annette McLean (formerly Zwambag)

I searched at over 15 bridal stores and looked at hundreds of wedding dresses on the Internet and magazines, and I have to say that you guys carry the most beautiful dresses in Toronto!!! Everyone after the wedding asked me where I found such a spectacular dress.

Jen Thomptson thinks staff at Best For Bride is extremely helpful

How was your experience at Best For Bride today?
It was amazing, the staff were very helpful, they have a very huge selection and they will help you with anything that you need, tell you a honest opinion about the dress and they will come up with different options to ones that you don't even think that you will like and that's what happened to me. I saw one, didn't think I liked it, put it on and I'm getting it. So they are extremely helpful here and there is a huge selection of dresses.
Thank you very much.
