Eric & Jess - My Once in a Lifetime Proposal

After backpacking and roughing it for nearly a month in Thailand, Eric suggests we spend a night at a resort to relax and unwind, maybe even have a fancy dinner. We scoured the local markets for some clothes to "fit in" (which was near impossible, since Thai women are apparently all XXS size). Eric planned the entire trip, so I was shocked when we arrived at the Andaman White Beach Resort, the only private beach in all of Phuket. As if the beach wasn't beautiful enough, we were led to the nicest private Beachfront Pool Villa and a bed covered in decorations and carefully placed flowers.

After a few hours of laying in cabanas and body surfing some waves, the staff seemed to be pretty busy with large bamboo tubes placed at one end of the resort and a heart sculpted into the sand at the other end. I jokingly laughed and said "can we have dinner there?" to which Eric laughed and said "not on my budget!"

As we start getting cleaned up for dinner the beautiful sky darkens and the Thailand rain starts beating down hard, and Eric seemed oddly upset over something that had happened everyday for the last week. Finally the rain lets up as the sun is going down, and so we walk through the resort to the dining hall, until Eric says that he must have gone the wrong way because dinner was somewhere else, and heads back towards the beach where now the heart in the sand is surrounded with torches, lights and a fully set table. We sat down and were greeted with a bottle of champagne and rolled parchments that displayed the night's 5 course meal. I was blown away at how incredible the set up was and how amazingly kind and attentive the staff were to making sure dinner was perfect... and it was! Crab, tuna, prawns, steak, plate after plate of the fanciest food I've ever eaten was brought to our table and we ate ourselves into a near food-coma.

As we finished our chocolate dessert and the last sips of champagne, Eric said "Did you know the circumference of the Earth is 25,000 miles and over the last couple of years we've travelled over 30,000 miles together? So I can say, that I've been around the world, and you're the best girl I've ever met." Now, this whole time a "resort" photographer is sneaking around taking photos as it supposedly "came with the meal" so we get up from dinner and Eric suggests taking a photo. As we stand there holding hands and smiling he tells me he loves me, and wants to "hold my hand for the rest of his life" and drops to his knee...

Suddenly a loud BOOM occurs above my head and makes me look up, and when I'm distracted he pulls a red box from his pocket and when I look down I see him smiling and holding the most beautiful ring I've ever seen. As I say yes and he stands up, 50 of the biggest fireworks I've ever seen start exploding over our heads in the shapes of hearts and flowers. (And when I say loud, these were illegal Chinese fireworks lol)

After the fireworks, we walked in the sand and listened as the waves crashed on the beach. It was the most perfect night of my life, and now I have a fiancé and a favorite souvenir from our trip!

Hello Olga,

Thank you so much for your professionalism and for my amazing dress!!

It came on time, it looked even more beautiful than the description and I had little girls pointing and waving at me on my walk to the ceremony.
I had never felt more like a princess than on my special day.

Thank you, again, for making my day one of a kind.
Teresa Frappier

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!
Conny

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.

Allison Mcdonald experience with Best for Bride - didn't come expecting to find a wedding dress

I love to shovel because I just spent I don't know how many hours at Best for Brides.
So tell us why you came to Best for Bride?
I'm on a very strict budget and I honestly didn't think that I was gonna find anything that I could afford and I saw online that this offered the most variety and I think for the best prices. I was so surprised.
So your experience was good?
Oh my gosh. Beyond good. It started all a little rough because I didn't know what I wanted I did not know what style. Donna came in and she just took over. In the end it's amazing how it happened because Donna just took the best in every dress I have tried on and put it all in one and I couldn't have asked for anything better. I am so over the moon happy right now I could cry again. Ah yeah the far better than I have ever expected this experience to be. So thank you Donna. Thank you Best for Brides because it's has been absolutely incredible. I didn't come expecting to find a dress and here we are ... going home happy.
