Vanessa and David's The Perfect Pre-Deployment Proposal

My fiancé, David, first dated when I was only a freshman in high school, which was nine years ago. Throughout the years we've remained attached at the hip, he is without question my best friend. Finally four years ago we became a little more serious and have been living together since. We are both in the Air Force and a few months ago I volunteered for a deployment to Iraq, leaving the beginning of August 2010. Not long after we found out that he would also be leaving, but not until three weeks before I would be returning home from Iraq. We will not see each other again until the fall of 2012, about fourteen months total. My parents decided through a going away BBQ in my honor, which I chose to celebrate with my family and close friends, on the night of July 31st, 2010. Towards the end of the night as it began to quiet, everyone gathered in their backyard around a fire, the kids were roasting marshmallows, and it seemed that the night was complete full of laughter and love. My now fiancé and I were standing next to each other talking to friends gathered around us in the glow of the fire, when all of a sudden I felt like I had all eyes locked onto me ... I turned around to David kneeling with a ring in hand. As he asked me to marry him, with all eyes watching, we both seemed to have lost all of our words, all I could do was shake my head yes, cry, and kiss him. David's friend knew the plan for the night all along and brought with him, prepared and ready, his camera to snap some pictures of the event itself. I said yes, of course. The ring is a beautiful round solitaire, simple and elegant. David and I always knew we would get married but I never thought he would have the ability to surprise me, through the years I've learned to read him like a book, but he nailed it.

At Best for Bride Bridal boutique, we are proud to offer our Lowest Price Guarantee.
Lowest Price Guarantee

We will beat any price you find in authorized retail store in Canada by 10% of the difference. Just bring in or email us the lower advertised price or the price quoted along with the store name.

Price match applies only to purchases made within 14 days excluding alterations, clearance products and cleaning. Price match requests can not be combined with any other special offers. Lowest price comparison is based on the actual cost of the merchandise before taxes and shipping. Best for Bride does not match online or U.S. prices. All price matches are subject to management approval. Management reserves all right to remove or modify the lowest price guarantee at any time.

Buyers beware! If you find a website selling designer gowns at very cheap prices compared to the regular price, you are buying a knock off.



I had great service at Best for Bride. I will recommend however to make sure you go for too big rather than too small if you are buying your dress several months ahead of time!

My gown ended up being quite tight.

Hello,

I loved both of my visits to your store. Denise & Donna were wonderful and I found their comments on the dresses very helpful. The atmosphere at the store is very easy going and not rushed like the big city stores where you have your time slot and move on.... I also love the "walk down the aisle" experience you definitely get to see your dress from every view point.

Thanks for the great experience!!

Cheers,
Brian and Jess Cull

Dear Best For Bride Bridal Boutique,
My husband and I would like to say a big thank you for all your assistance, in helping me get my beautiful wedding dress in time for our wedding which was on the August 20, 2005. I know it was quite a task, as I ordered the dress only about 7 weeks to the wedding, but you were very patient, pleasant and helpful. We really appreciate it! We've attached a photo of us in our special day.
Thank you, thank you and thank you again!

Warm Regards,
Jennifer & Daniel
