Jon and I started dating a little while before the Olympics, we quickly became best friends and knew that we wanted to get married. We had looked at rings online and I had a sneaking suspicion that he would propose sometime between September and December but wasn't sure when...

At 10:00 am on Sept 4th Jon called me and told me where to find a note that he had hidden in my closest, then hung up. I found and read the sweetest note telling me to get ready am meet him at out favorite local mountain at noon. I arrived to find Jon is sitting there with a picnic basket. We had a delicious picnic that he had made and he read me the last of "the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe" which we had started reading the month before. When he'd just about finished he placed a note on my stomach ended with "Let me know when you're ready and we'll move on".

We arrive downtown 30 mins later and rented out darling old-fashioned bicycles go for a ride around the seawall. (The seawall goes under my favorite bridge, and by Prospect Point, where my grandparents got engaged). On the way we came across a game of cricket, an outdoor art exhibition and the outdoor tanks the Vancouver aquarium. After, we headed to a very upscale Belgian restaurant (actually the first restaurant we ever went to:) for dinner. I entered nervously aware of my informal biking attire. The moment we sat down the waiter came with two bags for us, and I was delighted to find my three favorite dresses, two pairs of shoes and accessories. Although Jon insisted it was "elves" who'd packed my bag, I later found out my it was my mother (who had been away until that morning, and so must've packed it the week before!). After dinner the last line of note Jon placed on the table read "but we can't have dessert at the place we just ate, can we?", and he blindfolded me and off we went.

When we arrived at the gazebo in the park by my house, Jon's friends (who dropped him off at the mountain and our clothes at the restaurant). Had set up white lights all along the top and over a table bearing another note, a bouquet of lilies and roses and my favorite chocolate cake (which my mom and made for the "neighbors" that morning). After dessert, we got up and Jon told me to look at one of the lights in the distance, his last note he passed to me from behind me, and it read "turn around". I turned to find him on one knee with a the ring. I, of course, said yes :)

We are getting married next year on my grandparents 50th anniversary and I couldn't be more excited!

Hi Best for Bride!
My wedding day was absolutely amazing and my dress was part of the reason why it was exactly that.

I had been shopping for exactly the right dress for my full figure and curves and did not really feel comfortable with my other experiences at other stores until I came to your store. All the sales clerks were helpful. The price was perfect and it arrived on time well in advance of the wedding date.

Thanks again for the wonderful experience!
Mrs. Malki Louison

Dear Best for Bride,

I wanted to thank you so very much for the beautiful dresses I purchased from you this Fall 2009 from the Etobicoke store! Everyone who assisted me with my dress were extremely kind and helpful, especially the seamstress who helped me with my fitting! I am so glad that I found your website online, and I recommend you to everyone! Photos is the bridal dress and the bridesmaids

Thank you,
Cathe Hruboksa

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.
Elaine

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.
