Darren and Meenakshi's Double Engagement

Darren and I met on the popular social dating site plenty of fish, it was I who casted my hook and reeled him in (so to speak). It was not until almost a month of on and off again messaging that we decided to meet up. Our first date was the horror flick "The Crazies" and it was a suitable movie for the both of us because since our first date people think we were crazy for moving so fast. Only a mere few months of seeing each other and experiencing the hardships of the hard recession our relationship was definitely tested due to lack of income from being laid off or not being paid. Some couples would go on breaks until they decided it was a better time to reconnect but not us. We helped each other through the tough times and in turn we have become a stronger couple. Our first engagement took place at the waterfront in Toronto; it was right beneath the cable bridge. The sun was setting and the water was glistening with the rays, the cool breeze created such a romantic environment for the perfect proposal. With only words from his heart and a picture perfect setting Darren asked me to be his wife. Despite the lack of a ring I knew in my heart that this was the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. I accepted his proposal and we almost immediately changed our facebook status bringing on many speculations of our friends and family.

It would be 4 months later that Darren would pop the question once again with a ring. We officially got engaged December 18, 2010 at Niagara Falls, most people would deem that area as engagement central but, I believe it's the moment he chose to pop the question that sets us apart from the rest. It was a cold evening as we arrived at the falls, the sun had just set and the clouds were glooming over in partial darkness. Darren had asked me to go on the sky wheel with him and I complied. We got onto booth 5 and enjoyed the scenery, as we slowly approached the very top of the sky wheel we could see all over Niagara, they just turned on the lights to the falls and the view was truly breathtaking. I leaned to the side of the glass to see directly below us as we climbed to the top. As I got up and turned to Darren there he was on the classic bended knee. It was truly a sight to be seen, he held my hand and recited the most romantic poem, and asked me to marry him. It's as if time itself had stopped for that brief moment and coincidentally the sky wheel had stopped turning with us at the very top. With the sparkle of the ring the magic of view and the love of my life on one bended knee, there was no way I could say no to his question. As we disembarked the booth the attendant opening the door noticed the tears in my eyes and the red box on the seat he is officially the first person to congratulate us on our brand new union.

Dear 'Best for Bride' and Olga,

Thank you so much for your help with my bridesmaids dresses. The assistance was brilliant (hence why I came to you to buy the dresses and did not buy them from Scotland where we live!) I was always kept up to date on the progress of the dresses as well as being given the opportunity to twice send the dresses back and order other sizes. My bridesmaids looked wonderful and everyone commented how lovely their dresses were.

I would recommend using your company to all of my friends in the future. Best of luck for the future and please find pictures attached.

Joanne

Hello!

This is much later than I wanted it to be!

I want to thank everyone from Best for Bride who helped me during the hectic planning of my wedding. Everything went off perfectly, and a lot of it had to do with the help of everyone there.

I was worried about getting decor done at an affordable price, but when roaming around on the BFB website, I saw that it was offered. I showed up to the church and was amazed with the aisle drapery! Then showing up at the reception and seeing the head table - it was perfect. Thank you so much.

A special thank you to a couple of ladies:

Melloney - Thank you for being so supportive and assuring me that my dress would be perfect for the wedding. Thanks for not thinking I was a crazy lady when I bawled my eyes out in the change room!

Larissa - You're amazing. I would have been a wreck if I had not had you to help me with all of my dress woes. I've sent you another note of thanks. I hope that you can help me with the bridesmaid dress I will need in September 2011.

Again, thank you to everyone at Best for Bride. I'm sending a couple of pictures from my wedding on October 2, 2010.

All the best,
Sabrina Copeman

Cindy Brown Found Bridesmaid Dresses and Wedding Gown

So tell me about your experience at Barrie Best for Bride.
It was amazing. I came in just to look. My wedding is still 14 months away so I just kind of came in to get an idea and bridesmaid colors and designs and ended up finding my bridesmaid dresses as well as my wedding dress. The staff was amazing. They were really helpful at sizing. They were really helpful with the pricing and they were amazing with my bridesmaids. One of them was getting emotional and they were amazing helping there as well.
It is just highly recommended. I absolutely loved it.
Thank you so much.
You are very welcome.
