Danny & Vicki - Memorable Proposal

I'll start with a little background information about us. Danny and I first met back in 2015 when we were both working at Lacoste. During that time, we were just friends/ co-workers and called each other "bros". We went off to explore other jobs but somehow found each other back at Lacoste a year later. One night after a closing shift, we were both stuck waiting for a bridge on our way home. It gave us the chance to see who we are outside of work. Thanks to that bridge, here we are engaged and getting married! :D

Danny and I got engaged May 10, 2017. Since Danny was busy the next day which was our 8 months, we decided to have dinner the night before to celebrate. (Danny likes to celebrate every month, he writes me a love letter on the 11th of every month - I know cheesy right? lol)

He had white lilies (my favourite) delivered to my house earlier that day. My family speculated something was up since he has never sent me flowers before but I decided to shrug it off since it was a "special occasion"

We had reservations at the Keg over looking Niagara Falls. Dinner was delicious and the view was fabulous. We even dressed up to impress which is a rare occasion for us since we love to dress down and casual.

After dinner, he suggested we walk down to Oakes Garden Theatre (our special place) to digest. We were just enjoying each other's company, taking selfies near the tulips when this girl approached us asking if we wanted our pictures taken. We accepted the offer and posed to get our pictures taken. But her camera wasn't working. We waited and waited but it refused to work for us so she apologized and we went off to continue our walk. After that encounter, I could feel her presence around us. I could hear the clicking noises and the flashes of light from her camera, circling around us. I was SO creeped out! I started wondering why there was a girl at the park in the dark at such late hours! I started thinking "What is she planning to do with our pictures?" I was scared. Then the girl approached us again, saying "The camera is working now. Do you still want your pictures taken?" And she started snapping pictures and I started getting more and more creeped out. Danny was also trying to get away which is why I did not suspect anything. Once she left, I told Danny, "That was so weird. I'm so creeped out." Danny agreed and just like that we continued our walk.

Then it happened. Once we reached the top of the stairs, Danny got down to his knees, pulled out a ring and started his speech to ask the most important question. Out in the corner of my eyes, all I saw was the same girl jump out of nowhere clicking away, snapping our photos! I had a hard time focusing on the proposal because my attention was all on this creepy photographer! loll

Of course, Danny had hired her to take our pictures as he proposed. But with her camera hiccup, everything was falling apart. I confessed how creeped out and scared I was and she even apologized saying "OMG, if I were you, I would be so creeped out right now" loll

It wasn't the romantic, fairytale proposal every girl dreams about but it is a memorable one I will never forget. xD

I've attached some of our pictures from that night. I'm surprised they turned out okay even though I was so freaked out lol

Thanks for taking the time to read our proposal 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 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 Scrivanich - liked Big Beautiful Store and No Pressure

So tell me about your experience at Barrie Best for Bride.
When I walked in they were very welcoming and greeting and it is so beautiful and big store and able to go and take a look at all the dresses and styles and go and actually pick some out ourselves that we would like to try on instead of having consultant just pick ones for you. And very comfortable, very big, open spaces, able to look and try different things. And plenty of time, no pressure, a lot of time to take a look around, try on all different dresses that I wanted to. Everything was great and really wonderful.
And we FOUND THE DRESS.
Yeah, we found the dress.

Laura Cutting and her Bridesmaids Experience with Best for Bride was just amazing

Ladies please tell me about your experience at Best For Bride.
Our experience was just amazing, the ladies here were extremely helpful. They even picked out a dress for you but you didn't even think will look great and it just was amazing. They were very helpful, very personable. I would definitely recommend this store to all my friends. Yeah, pretty much you summed it all up in those words. I never would have put that dress on me and she just said "Put it on" and I loved it and I stood in it for I think half an hour and I definitely love it and it's gonna look amazing like in the color that we want to be for your wedding and the help we got has been the best I have seen so far. It's has been perfect. Being the bride was definitely a great experience. It was kind of experience you always dream of ... going in and getting all the help. If you have ever seen "Say Yes to the Dress" Kleinfeld, it's like that in Canada. You get to come in (but more polite) and more personal. It's a small cute little store you get pampered pretty much and that's what everyone wants but they are not pushy. No. No.
Thank you so much ladies.
Thank you.
