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.

Hi Best for Bride team,

I wanted to thank everyone at best for bride once again for the wonderful service I received. When I arrived at your store I was pretty nervous. I had no idea what I was looking for, what would suite me or what I even wanted. My mother has been ill the last little while, and dress shopping was not something she could really participate in, making the ordeal that much more stressful. The staff at best for bride treated me like a daughter from the selection, to the fittings, right down to the alterations. I was so happy with my dress and it was well within budget. I got so many complements about my dress on and after the wedding day.

Thank you again, it really meant a lot.
Sylvia Nazarethian

Good Evening Olga,

I wanted to send you some photos from the wedding 3 weeks ago. We had a fun, relaxed day and I wasn't the only one that LOVED my dress, I received many compliments. My mother mentioned that there were a few ladies who just loved, loved it. Thank you for your help with getting the dress sooner then I expected and you promised me, what a stress relief to have it in hand. And the fabric that you provided that matched my dress made a beautiful dress for my flower girl.

Thank you again for all your help, I truly appreciate it!
