Agla and Cameron - Better

You cannot vote for this story anymore, as this story participated in constest that ended on June 30, 2017

Me and C met on a blind date on Friday the 13th in 2013, after being matched on Tinder. We were both a little nervous about the date, since this was the first time experimenting with dating apps for the both of us. Little did we know that this was going to be our last first date - and we keep laughing about how Friday the 13th is our lucky day (and 13 our lucky number!).

We are an unexpected match since we come from opposite ends of the world, me from Iceland and him from Australia, but we are the perfect fit for each other and share a common love for the world.

Exactly 3 years after our first date, C woke me up with a cheeky smile and a huge present, which turned out to be a very heavy safe that was locked with a number combination. He then handed me a beautiful card, wishing me a happy anniversary and explained that I would be receiving clues throughout the day regarding how to open the safe. To top it off, I was not allowed to let the safe out of my sight so I dragged the safe with me to work, creating a lot of excitement with my colleagues (and basically everyone that walked past me that day).

The first clue arrived after lunch, a beautiful bouquet of flowers delivered to my desk along with a card that had the number "1" tied to it. The card talked about how I would always be his number 1, his 1 priority and the only 1 for him. (The card also included some nerdy mathematical facts about the number 1 which I loved - we're both Engineers so we like to nerd out together).

The second clue arrived shortly after I finished work. C took me (and the safe) to a wine bar and as the waiter was bringing me an appetizer plate, he very smoothly pulled out a little card from beneath the plate. That card had the number "6" tied to it and C described how he had rolled a 6 when he met me, how we moved in together after only 6 months and of course - how mathematically 6 is the perfect number! ? At that point I started suspecting there wasn't just a normal anniversary present in the safe, and I couldn't wait for more clues.

We walked down to a nearby restaurant that we both love and sat down for a lovely meal (and of course, always carrying the safe). As the waiter was bringing us some macaroons for dessert, I noticed another card under the macaroons. That card had the number "9" tied to it and reading it brought me to tears - C talked about how it would take 9 months for us to create our own little family and how he couldn't wait to experience that with me. Hand in hand, we left the restaurant and I could tell that this adventure was about to reach its peak.

We walked past a cute little skating rink which was all lit up with Christmas lights. C casually asked if we should go skating, so we rented some skates and skated around in our fancy outfits (and with our safe). As C is not the best skater I know (seriously, it's like Bambi learning how to walk), he took a break after a few circles and sat down in the middle of the rink. I skated towards him and as I sat down next to him, I noticed another card on the bench - my favorite of them all. That card had the number "0" attached to it and explained how C was nothing without me and how he had 0 doubts about us being together. 0 was how long he wanted to wait before continuing our lives together and this was the final clue to his heart. It took me a moment to realize that I could finally open the safe and I guess I knew there was a big moment to follow. With shaky hands and my heart beating out of my chest, I punched in these four numbers 1-6-9-0 (in the order I had received them). But the safe wouldn't open! C smiled at me and told me he couldn't have made it that easy. He said that with me being the math and board game nerd that I am - I would have to work just a little bit harder to figure out the combination. I nearly screamed and I simply couldn't think straight at that point - I just wanted to open the safe! C told me to think about how long we had been together, and then it hit me - this was a math puzzle! 3 years together is 365 days times 3 plus 1 (2016 was a leap year) equals 1096. I punched in those numbers and a beautiful pink box containing my ring appeared to me, C did a little speech (which is all a big blur to me) and went down on one knee - on his ice skates! I said YES but couldn't stop worrying about him falling over on his skates! Everyone on the skating rink came running to us, applauding and congratulating us. We took a moment to take it all in and then happily walked over to the bar on the next corner for an engagement toast. The exact same bar where we first met 3 years ago <3

Dear Best For Bride

My wife and I would like to say a big thank you and our greatest appreciation for all your assistance and help of getting one of the most important items on the wedding planer list - Wedding Dress.
Everything: finding, ordering, delivering, fitting and alterations were done promptly and with a lot of support from the staff. Professionalism and confidence of the employees assured me and specially my fianc&amp;#233; that all will be just fine.
At the end the service and the dress exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend "Best For Bride" to future brides and grooms.
Once again I want to state my appreciation for the service and special thanks to Olga.

My name is Elaine and I purchased my dream wedding dress from Best for Bride. The service I received from my very first visit to every time I went back was just amazing. They were all so supportive, helpful, honest and really had an eye for seeing the vision I was trying to find. They made me feel like a princess and really helped me with my search for my dream gown. When I did find "the dress" they were just as happy and excited as my family and friends were, they were the best goup of ladies to have with me at that moment. The customer service at Best for Bride was no comparison to any of the other stores I had been to, and ultimately, is why I kept going back and found my wedding gown there.

Thanks so much ladies, it was the best experience, and just the experience I hoped for.

Oh Best or Bride has the best staff ever. Katrine was nothing but a joy and pleasure. She was fabulous and she had really great ideas too on how to alter my dress and she didn't stick us with a single pin.
Thanks ladies.

We landed in here on Saturday afternoon unannounced and Donna and Denise were awesome. We spent last only 3 or 4 hours in here trying on a hundred dresses and then leaving with my ideal dress. Awesome place I would recommend anybody to come here at any time. They give great service, great prices, great atmosphere. Thank you.


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.
