To the man that makes me smile every day:

After finishing my degrees at the University of Great Falls, in Great Falls, Montana, i had to move back home to Canada. I was completely depressed, because for the first time in my life, i really felt like i had found a home in Montana. I had the best life, the best school, the best friends, and I have never felt happier. So the ten hour drive home was filled with memories, sadness and tears.

After I had moved home, i was hired at our local Correctional Facility as a Correctional Officer. During our second week of training at the facility, i remember walking in one morning, looking up at the tiers as all the employees were scoping us out, and out of all the employees, these beautiful baby blue eyes caught my eye!!! He had the most amazing smile and dimples that went from ear to ear. I had this feeling rush right through me. I had no idea who he was, whether he was single or not, or what he was like; i instantly felt drawn to him. I could not stop thinking about it. So i decided to make it my mission to cross paths with him at one point or another.

That could not have come any easier! During our shadow shifts, i was placed on the one unit i asked to be kept off of and sure enough, he was the guard! I was so excited, so nervous, my stomach filled with butterflies.... but i couldn't be happier. Sadly, i was only to spend four hours with him but was determined to make the best of it.

As it turned out, we had a lot in common, and growing up, crossed each others path several times, but for one reason or another, never ended up meeting each other. He told me how he was a wrestler, and our common ground was instant!!! In Great Falls, wrestling is a major sport, and i ended up becoming friends with the wrestlers, and thats the group i always hung out with. Surprisingly, i knew my own share to keep up to him! It was interesting to see, but i was getting the sense that he was very nervous around me, and even a little flirty! I was EXCITED!! I could not stop staring at his gorgeous blue eyes, his perfect teeth and smile, and i found his voice to be extremely soothing. I could have listened to him talk for hours!! He asked me a lot of questions, made sure to keep the conversation going. At last... I knew what i wanted.

Shortly after, we crossed each others path at shift change, and he asked me if i would be interested in going out with him and a few guys from work for drinks. Wish it would have been that night!!! The wait was aweful. The night before the drinks, he ran into me at work and asked me if i was coming for sure. He informed he would call me, but i had to point out the obviuos- he did not have my number! I think i caught him off guard, because he hesistated and stuttered for a minute, but said he would find a way to get it, not to worry. Taking a step, i just looked at him and said, "or i could just give it to you now." Might I add, that after my shift with him, i ran home to search for him on Facebook, and thankfully, it said he was single. It was FATE.

We ended up going out and had a great time. He got a little intoxicated, but agreed to come to a wedding with me that weekend, and even managed to kiss me while falling on me. Our relationship started off a little rocky. We had both come out of serious relationships just before we met, and we each were being cautious.

One night, i went for drinks with friends, and i kept texting him in hopes of meeting up with him. He had different plans; did he ever!! I ended up going to a different restaurant for drinks, and sure enough, he walked in with another girl! I was crushed... i could literally feel my heart breaking and when i saw him, i couldn't even breathe for a minute. We were never "officially" dating, and it wasn't really a big deal, but the sight of seeing him with a different girl, when i instantly had such strong feelings towards him, was the worst heartbreak i have ever had. No word of a lie. Even through the weeks before, every time i saw his name on my phone, or saw him at work, my breath was taken away, i had butterflies, i was shaky, felt like throwing up, but the rush was excilirating. I needed more. He became my drug... my addiction. Sadly, as with any addiction, the withdrawal was devastating.

After watching him with another girl for close to an hour, i finally called him over. He was stuttering, shaking, scared, and kept telling me how we needed to talk. I didn't understand what we needed to talk about. I wasn't sure i could ever talk to him. I wanted to run in his arms, and feel that orgasmic rush of comfort and true happiness run through my body. I wanted him to kiss me, so i could feel the rush of his gentle kiss race through my bloodstream but instead, he walked away, left with the girl, and left me behind with a broken heart.

It wasn't until a few weeks later, that we casually started talking again, because of rumors that i was hearing. He was working a night shift and we had agreed to meet after his shift and talk. Unfortunately, he was forced to stay for a day shift, and again, fate was against us. Few days later, we finally managed to meet, and although i was in high hopes of what he was going to say, my hopes were let down. He explained what had happened, why it happened, and ended it with the "not ready for a relationship" speech. I was crushed, but i couldn't stop. I tried, but the connection was too strong. We agreed to stay friends, and we kept in touch, and over the weeks it turned into a relationship. Everything was perfect. Two years later, he drove me to Great Falls, took me to the campus, and right infront of the chapel, got down on one knee and proposed to me in hungarian ( I was born in Hungary and was seven years old when i moved to Canada). At first, i didn't know what he was saying, but after a minute it registered. I was so excited. Finally, all my dreams had come true. We will be celebrating our three year anniversary in august and getting married in the fall. Our relationship is just like everyone's. We have our bumps, but we always talk about our differences, and respect each other enough to change if necessary. I have never had a more relationship where i have such a strong connection to someone before. I take marriage seriously, and would never marry a man unless i knew for sure. Although we have some things to work out, I cannot imagine my life with any other man. I can only ask God to allow me to spend the rest of my life with him, and ask him to keep him with me. As he gets closer to his policing careers, the fears are always within me. I cannot imagine a single day without his gorgeous smile and soothing baby blues! He is definitely my match, my soul-mate and the man i will grow old with!!

Hi Best for Bride team,

My daughter's graduation was in June 2009. We looked all over for a dress in a style that my daughter wanted, but also within my budget.
Best for Bride had exactly what my daughter wanted within my price point. When the dress came, it was perfect!

Thank you for making us both very happy!
Peggy

Dear Olga,

Best For Bride, and specifically Olga was very helpful when I was ordering the dress for my niece. She was very helpful when I had questions in respect to the sizing. I was able to pay with my credit card and it was hassle free. I live in West Africa and sometimes it is difficult to have things delivered here. The shipping was free and the dress arrived exactly when they said it would arrive. As this was a very positive experience I would recommend Best For Bride to anyone who was thinking of buying a dress off the internet.

Thank you for everything.
Karen Salloum

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.

I came into this store this wonderful young lady named Taylor was here and she had the biggest smile She said: "May I help you" and I told her the predicament ... future daughter in law, pregnant, getting marrying in June, has a limited budget and she found the most beautiful dress because I had the picture of my future daughter in law was interested in and it was so close to this dress so Taylor went on to the computer and phoned out if it comes in white or beige she did, it did, she told me: "Yes we would have it on time". She said me how we should have her measured and I would come in the next day to order it and I did. And I just came today to say thank you to Taylor cause were so happy.
