Samantha and Marco - I said oui!

We got engaged on September 6th, 2016 in Paris, France! It was the second day of our Europe trip and we were walking around Paris on that sunny Tuesday morning. We started the day walking along the Champs-Élysées. We checked out the shops, stopped for a coffee and croissant then headed towards the Ferris wheel. I didn't even know Paris had a Ferris wheel! I said to my then boyfriend, now fiancé, Marco that we should go for a ride! We had not seen the Eiffel Tower yet, so I knew this would be an incredible view of the whole city and I kept saying how romantic it would be. He was hesitant and said okay but let's see how much it is first. We get up to the ticket box and it's only 12 euro each to go on. I said let's do it! Again, saying it would be soooo romantic! He gave in and we went on. We were in awe of the view! When we saw the Eiffel Tower for the first time, I had butterflies. I could not believe we were in Paris! It felt like a dream. I noticed Marco was acting a bit weird and quiet. I turned to him and he was fidgeting in his wallet. He said "do you want me to pay you back for the ticket? How much was it?". I said "no! Don't even worry about that now! Enjoy the view!". It was strange for him to ask me, we never pay each other back for stuff like that, so I was curious what he was trying to do. Then he said "okay well, how about this? Will you marry me?" and with that he pulls out a stunning engagement ring out of his wallet! He had it safety pinned in there so he wouldn't lose it! How cute! I put my hand over my mouth and was in shock. I said "oh my goodness!!! Yes! Yes! A million times yes!" We were so happy and quickly took a shot of us, up in the air, hoping we caught the Eiffel Tower behind us! Luckily we did. We got off the Ferris wheel and I was shaking like a leaf! My legs felt like jello and we couldn't stop smiling. I turned to Marco, kissed him and said "aww, I said oui!!!" and we just started laughing. It was the happiest day of our lives! I only wish I had video to replay that whole moment over and over.

It's even more special to me that he proposed on a Ferris wheel, because six years ago, we took our first picture together on the Ferris wheel in Niagara Falls!

I hope you enjoyed our story.

Hi Best for Bride,

I would just like to thank all the staff at Best For Bride in Etobikoke for helping my daughter and I find what we were looking for. I can't remember the ladies name that was helping us at the time but she was a tall woman and I believe her name began with a D. My daughter bought her wedding dress there and I bought my dress there as well. We were impressed with the wide selection of dresses that you had to chose from. I looked at so many dresses in other places as the mother of the bride and could not find anything that was suitable. My daughter and I exhausted every wedding shop in London Ontario and could not find the perfect dress. We went to a few places in Mississauga and Toronto and could not find the perfect dress until we visited Best For Bride and that is where she and I found the right dresses for us. Attached is a couple of photos of her day and the dresses we bought from you.

Thanks again,
Wayne

Hi Best for Bride team,

I wanted to thank everyone at best for bride once again for the wonderful service I received. When I arrived at your store I was pretty nervous. I had no idea what I was looking for, what would suite me or what I even wanted. My mother has been ill the last little while, and dress shopping was not something she could really participate in, making the ordeal that much more stressful. The staff at best for bride treated me like a daughter from the selection, to the fittings, right down to the alterations. I was so happy with my dress and it was well within budget. I got so many complements about my dress on and after the wedding day.

Thank you again, it really meant a lot.

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!
