I first met Neena on April 16, 2010 during a production of her dance company at Markham Theatre. Neena is a leading Indian Classical Dancer and Assistant Artistic Director for the largest Classical Dance Company in Canada.

I had never attended such a show or visited the theatre myself. We began to see each other after that and the relationship progressed very well. About 10 months later, I was thinking strongly of proposing but wanted to do something memorable. I got the idea that I wanted to propose to her under the guise of a show that I had created, and I wanted to do it at Markham Theatre where we first met. I was able to rent the theatre out for the proposal. I made up posters and booklets for the play 'Six Questions' that designed - the Who/What/Where/Why/When and How of proposing to Neena! I made a video that was this play, which ended by asking her to come on stage.

I made it professional by sending out posters and making program booklets available at showtime. I enlisted the help of her friend who taught me how to propose using the hand gestures that are used by Indian Classical dancers during their shows.

Neena arrived to an empty house, but the usher was amazing at getting Neena into the theatre and sitting her down. The video played and she came on stage at the end. I came out and shocked her with my dance moves and she said yes!

I have never had any training before and have zero artistic ability, so pulling this all off required months of work but it was worth it all in the end.

We have it on video!



Thanks for hearing out story on proposing to a dancer!

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.
