I want to preface the story with how my fiance and I met. We have known each other since Kindergarten! We met when we were 5 years old, and were together in school up until Grade 3. I left the school to attend another one closer to home, however Roger (my fiance) was always a friend who I thought of throughout the years. He was a class clown, and always tried to make friends laugh. We were separated throughout the rest of elementary school, high school and into university, however throughout this time his name would always pop up here and there, through friends of mine that we knew. We ended up reuniting one day in University in 2008, and have been together ever since!!

But back to the engagement story...

Roger and I took a trip in December 2015 to New York City right before Christmas. I had always wanted to see the beautiful holiday lights and sounds that we all know too well from movies. From watching the Rockettes, to seeing the Rockefeller tree, it was a trip that I've always wanted to do. While we were in NYC, Roger planned a day to spend in Central Park, walking around and just enjoying the magic of NYC at christmas time. We had stopped to take a break from walking, and he had suggested to go visit a bridge where we had taken pictures together on a previous trip in 2011. I agreed, and we started making our way over there. Before we walked onto the bridge, I asked Roger if we could stop in front of the bridge to take a selfie together. He said sure, so we posed for a picture. After I took our selfie, he turned to me and said the most beautiful, heart warming speech. He then got down on one knee, and in front of that beautiful bridge, he proposed to me. Of course, I said YES!! A crowd had formed around us and onto the bridge, and many onlookers began to cheer and congratulate us. It was by far, the sweetest and greatest moment of my life.

As I was crying (hysterically, I might add) he turned to me and said "Do you see that lady over there?" and pointed to a woman behind us. I said "yes...what about her?" He then said "She has been taking our photos and we now have a 30 minute photoshoot with her!" I was shocked! It was so beautiful.

I now have beautiful photos to remember not only the moment we got engaged, but also the excitement afterward that the photographer managed to capture so beautifully.

I have attached a few of the photos from our engagement for you to enjoy.

I hope you enjoyed reading my proposal story. It is one I am so honoured to tell. Roger is the love of my life and I am so excited to marry him.

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

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.
