Nadia and Adrian - Magical, Spontaneous and well thought out proposal

The engagement happened on October 7th, 2014. That night, Adrian told Nadia that they will be going to Adrian's sisters house for dinner. It was a regular rainy Tuesday night, so Nadia had no idea that a proposal awaited. On the way to "the sisters house", Adrian told Nadia we have to stop by Nadia's brother to pick up something for Adrian's grandfather. As we got to Nadia's brothers house, Nadia runs to the front door as it was pouring rain. Adrian yelled at Nadia saying, we have to go the back. Nadia was like "why!, it's pouring what are we going to do in the backyard". Adrian stated "Your brother is cooking curry". For some reason, Nadia believed it. They ran to the backyard in the pouring rain, and as we walked into the back, Nadia see a bunch of Mason jars with LED lights set up under a gazebo. All of a sudden, the song "Just you and I" by Ricky Blaze (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dr4n5YbqBnw) starts playing in the background. Nadia walks towards to the table and looks at Adrian all puzzled. Nadia then looks off into the kitchen through the doors to see all of her friends, brother, sister in law and nephew gazing through the doors with big smiles on their faces; Nadia knew a proposal was happening. Adrian told Nadia to open each jar and read the messages on the back of the laminated pictures. There were 8 jars. Nadia opened them and each picture had a message that was written by Adrian talking about since the first time they met. The final picture was a picture of a restaurant that Adrian took Nadia's parents, brother, sister-in-law and nephew to ask for their blessings to ask for Nadia's hand in marriage.

After all the messages were read from each picture, Adrian then had a few words to tell Nadia. Of course, being so tech savy, Adrian read the message off of his iPhone. One statement that stood out of them all, is that Adrian believed that him and Nadia have spent past lives together. Adrian then got on one knee and asked Nadia to be his wife. After moments of tears and laughter, Nadia and Adrian went into the house to meet everyone and get lots of hugs. Adrian set up a photographer and videographer to capture the whole thing. It was amazing. As we are all sitting in the kitchen, some of the friends suggested for us to go grab a bite to eat. Everyone agreed. We all headed to Waterfront Bistro in Pickering. As Nadia is walking into the restaurant, a crowd of family and friends yelled surprise! Adrian had planned a PART TWO to the engagement. He proposed and planned a get together with everyone to share in our auspicious occasion all in one night. Nadia was in shock as she saw her parents, Adrian's parents, all of their cousins and friends waiting to celebrate in their Engagement at the restaurant. All night, Nadia did not say much (and Nadia is definitely a talker). She was in shock all night, trying to comprehend what had just happened. Adrian did a marvelous planning a beautiful proposal.

After the proposal, Adrian and Nadia sat down and chatted. Adrian then confessed how long the proposal had been in the works. Adrian had asked a few of Nadia's friends to help him plan it. Adrian and Nadia's friends went searching for the perfect place and props to include in the proposal. Adrian and the friends spent a few nights preparing for the engagement. Initially, Adrian wanted to have the proposal at a secluded area at the beach, but due to the weather, he was not able to do it there.

At the end of it all, it turned out to be a magical, spontaneous and well thought out proposal. Nadia could not have wanted any more than that. Hopefully our story will inspire others.

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.

Sincerely,
Liz Price

Hi Best for Bride,

Thanks for giving me the chance to offer my feedback on my experience at Best for Bride. I have to say it was a great experience. While I can't remember names, everyone there was so helpful and took their time with me so I didn't feel rushed or pressured. I bought my dress off the rack and you had a fantastic selection at really great prices. I had a tough time choosing but in the end, got the perfect dress. Your seamstress was amazing and efficient and the dress fit perfectly after she was done with it. I would definitely recommend Best for Bride to my friends and family. I've attached a picture here. Thanks for all your help!

Hi ladies,

Our wedding was on June 30, 2009 in Cuba, at the Melia Las Dunas. We had a beautiful outdoor ceremony...in the 35C heat. But it's ok, we jumped into the ocean and the pool afterward to cool off :) Thank you for helping me make my dress dreams come true (and saving me almost 600$! ) P.S. The dress is still perfect!

Thank you!
Virginia

Amanda Ugarkovic highly recommends Best for Bride

So tell me about your experience at Best for Bride.
Well, I spent some time in the big city. I thought may be I can go there and find some styles and being a little larger was not exactly easy but I came to Barrie, saw the girls at Best for Bride and they hooked me up. I had a much better experience, so much more fun and the girls really listened to what you want and you can be goofy and it is fun and it is OK. It does not have to be a stressful experience. So I would highly recommend and if you are looking for a gown and for a good time come to Best for Bride.
