The back story:
We have known each other for roughly 4 years, and shared friends for even longer than that. When we met, we were with other people. A little over a year later, we were both helping some friends move in together, along with the rest of our group of friends (we're all very close). At the time we were helping our friends move in together, he and I had just gone through our very own tough break-ups from the 7 year relationships we had both just been in. Our friends couldn't help but point this fact out to each of us throughout the day. One by one, people would make comments to me, "Funny how you and Gordon are so similar and are both going through break-ups at the same time." By the end of that day, we were all enjoying our moving help payments of pizza and beer, while Gordon and I couldn't help noticing each other across the room. Throughout the next year and a half, we managed to realize the attraction we had for each other was more than just something small, and it was scary....especially after the bad experiences we had just left. So, we managed to date people we knew were wrong for us in order to keep distance between us until the thought of being with someone you couldn't help but just know was perfect for you, wasn't so scary anymore. Eventually, last year the day after my 29th birthday party, we decided to stop fighting it and take that chance of being together. We've been completely inseparable since then.

Fast forward to today: This year on my 30th birthday, Gordon told me he had surprise plans for my birthday. He hinted at dinner and a movie. I figured this was just to throw me off, because I'm usually really good at playing detective. We arrived at Big Picture (an independent theater downtown Seattle that serves cocktails along with the usual movie treats) around 5pm on Wednesday. So, I didn't think much of the fact that we were the only ones there until the movie screen came on. I mentioned to Gordon how crazy it was that we were the only one's there, but still thought it had to do with it being early and in the middle of the week. Then, the movie started, and it was Gordon on the screen.... Come to find out, he had rented the place out and got them to play his video. So, here's how he proposed



I said YES!!!

Thank you for listening and viewing our story! I hope we win.

Hi Katarina,

Just thought you would like to see pictures of the dresses that you altered. The dresses were perfect. You can see Rebecca's maid of honour dress along with the other bridesmaids. You can also see what my daughter Candice's wedding dress looked like.

The wedding was on August 14th and it was a most beautiful day.

Thank you so much for your wonderful work. You made us look so good. In fact one of my coworkers wants to buy the same dress that I had.

I will refer people to Best for Bride and to you.

Many thanks
Janet Kamienik

Cindy Brown Found Bridesmaid Dresses and Wedding Gown

So tell me about your experience at Barrie Best for Bride.
It was amazing. I came in just to look. My wedding is still 14 months away so I just kind of came in to get an idea and bridesmaid colors and designs and ended up finding my bridesmaid dresses as well as my wedding dress. The staff was amazing. They were really helpful at sizing. They were really helpful with the pricing and they were amazing with my bridesmaids. One of them was getting emotional and they were amazing helping there as well.
It is just highly recommended. I absolutely loved it.
Thank you so much.
You are very welcome.

Samantha Gumbrell - Renting Wedding Dress on a very fixed budget

Tell us about your experience at Best for Bride.
OK. My name is Sam and I came to Best for Bride very very nervous and anxious and as soon as I walked in the door Denise and Donna were so helpful and they said that I was not going to leave this place without finding the dress of my dreams and they were absolutely correct. I think it was the seventh dress that I tried on and I knew right away that is was the dress that I was going to wear for my special date and they gave me the option for rental because I was on a very fixed budget and the rental was great because it was the dress that I wanted and I knew that I could afford it. And so I was very very happy.
