Justin and Vee - Team effort Proposal

You cannot vote for this story anymore, as this story participated in constest that ended on June 30, 2015

How We Met: We met through a mutual friend and agreed to go to dinner at the Spanish Flower in downtown Houston. She was working a lot of hours at Minute Maid park where she directed the club level. It was the beginning of baseball season so I knew she was extremely busy. I was working lots of hours as a special education teacher and football coach at a very successful program. We hit it off very quickly and I knew she was different from the first time she opened her mouth (along with her beautiful smile). Things continued to go smoothly even though we had very demanding hours. Every chance she got, she drove the hours drive to my home to spend time with me, which did not go unnoticed. I told her if she "survived" the football season with my long hours and dealing with a frustrated coach after a bad practice or game, that she would be a keeper. She was my biggest fan, and she passed the challenge with flying colors.

How I asked: I decided to get the football players involved with my proposal for two reasons:

1) I spend many hours with these kids in and out of the season, and they are a big part of my life

2) I wasn't too fond of the typical proposal because it just wasn't our style.

So, I called a team meeting during the football period and started the meeting with "I've been here for seven years and I think its time for a change. Change is always good."

The players looked at me with a saddened look, thinking that I might be leaving the program, but instead, I explained to them I wanted them to be involved with my proposal to my girlfriend. The room erupted with emotion and excitement. After I calmed them down (after 10 full minutes) I gave them the game plan.

The plan was to have a fake fight, just to grab her attention, because I knew she wouldn't watch a regular practice. I would build up the fight with her throughout the week after it happened so it will keep her interest. The kids followed through with the plan perfectly and didn't a great job of acting as you can see on the video.

The video continues with me calling up the group and having them take a knee all at the same time. I took my jacket off to reveal a shirt and tie (with my coaching shorts on) and held up a sign I made a day prior that said, "Vee, will you marry me?"

The video was then revealed to her on a Saturday (2 days after we recorded it). I set up my Ipad to record her reaction. Once the sign was shown on the video, I got down on a knee next to her in the kitchen and proposed. Her reaction was priceless, but yet nerve racking because I was waiting for what seemed like an eternity. She finally said yes and the game plan was labeled a SUCCESS!

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,


Dear Best for Bride,

Thank you for making my wedding day such a fantastic experience. When the first dress I purchased didn't work out (3 weeks before my wedding!), the seamstress Laryssa took me under her wing. When she was aware of my previous mishap and rendered it 'unfixable', she personally took me upstairs and recommended a new dress. She instilled confidence in me about the choice and went above and beyond to ensure that the new dress would be tailored and ready to go in record time. Linda was also extremely helpful acting as a cheerleader and helping to co-ordinate logistics. On the wedding day, I couldn't believe the number of compliments about the dress and I am so thrilled with the way it turned out. My day was made perfect through the hard-working and accomodating staff at the Etobicoke Best for Bride, and in particular, Laryssa & Linda.

Dear Olga and the Best for Bride Team,

Thank you for the dream wedding dress.

I found here great selection of wedding dresses at most reasonable prices. You do not need to see another store. Shopping at BfB is a wonderful experience, and be prepared to spend here close to three hours trying on those wonderful dresses. Bring in your bridesmaids and the whole extended family to make this experience even more pleasurable and festive (just like in those shows on TV). Lucy was my shopping associate helping me to find THE RIGHT DRESS. You can say that: "I love Lucy". She is a good listener and she always brings the exact dress that I wanted to try on next. It certainly seems that she knows the whole inventory by heart. She is brutally honest with her opinions which are of great help. You can trust her point of view. The major assets of this store are: Lucy, endless inventory of dresses, reasonable prices, and the overall customer service. I found the dream dress that fits for the occasion of a lifetime.

Thank you.

Elena P.

Ashley Selwood Celebrates with her Bridesmaids

Laura Cutting and her Bridesmaids Experience with Best for Bride was just amazing

Ladies please tell me about your experience at Best For Bride.
Our experience was just amazing, the ladies here were extremely helpful. They even picked out a dress for you but you didn't even think will look great and it just was amazing. They were very helpful, very personable. I would definitely recommend this store to all my friends. Yeah, pretty much you summed it all up in those words. I never would have put that dress on me and she just said "Put it on" and I loved it and I stood in it for I think half an hour and I definitely love it and it's gonna look amazing like in the color that we want to be for your wedding and the help we got has been the best I have seen so far. It's has been perfect. Being the bride was definitely a great experience. It was kind of experience you always dream of ... going in and getting all the help. If you have ever seen "Say Yes to the Dress" Kleinfeld, it's like that in Canada. You get to come in (but more polite) and more personal. It's a small cute little store you get pampered pretty much and that's what everyone wants but they are not pushy. No. No.
Thank you so much ladies.
Thank you.
