The Proposal

Every year, Megan and her family celebrate the Pittsburgh Holiday that is Pirates' Opening Day. This year, Megan and Mike were excited to share this tradition with Mike's dad and step-mom who were in town visiting to watch Mike coach. Or so Megan thought! After a week of stressing over cleaning the house and excitement over planning for their visit, Megan and Mike were a bit on edge when Big Tex and Terri arrived Wednesday afternoon. To say Megan was being a bit mean to Mike would be an understatement! On the morning of the Home Opener, Megan yelled at Mike because she thought he would rather be at his High School baseball game than going to the opener with her and their families. (Oops!) This crazy morning even involved a quick turnaround in Sewickley because Mike had forgotten the tickets! Finally, Megan, Mike, Big Tex, Terri and Megan and Mike's friend Brenda were on their way to PNC Park. They arrived at the "truck tunnel" to park and to Megan's surprise, her mom was not very happy to see her, and was in fact, quite rude! But, Megan thought nothing of it and they picked up the rest of their group and walked down to the park. It was explained to Megan that everyone would be sitting scattered around the ballpark because they couldn't find tickets in the same section together. This made perfect sense because the Home Opener is always a sell-out. Mike even had to buy a ticket the night before to sit by himself. Once Megan was seated with Amy and Brenda, she texted Mike and said, Do you want me to come visit?" To?"Sorry you have you have to sit by yourself. which he replied, "I'm FINE," which she thought was pretty rude so she thought, Forget Him! and continued watching the game. At the middle of the fourth inning, Megan was scanning the crowd for where her mom was sitting and all of a sudden, Brenda and Amy yelled, "LOOK AT THE DAMN BOARD!" And sure enough! Up on the scoreboard was a message that read, "Megan, Will you Marry Me? Love, Miguel" (Mike signs all of his cards and notes to Megan, "Miguel"). Not realizing at first what was going on, Megan looked to her left and there was Mike, on one knee with "THE RING." He said, "Will you Marry Me?" and though she doesn't remember saying the actual words "Yes" (it's on video though!), she does remember snatching that ring up as fast as she could! Then, with the ring on her finger, Megan looked around and realized that not only were Mike's dad and Terri there, but, his mom, her boyfriend, Rob and Mike's Aunt Kim and cousin Meagan were there as well! Her Aunt Janet was there, Janet's mom Nancy was there, her Uncle Denny was there, Megan and Mike's friends Todd and Julie were there, and not to mention, all of sections 308 and 309 were there cheering! Overwhelmed and incredibly excited, Megan looked for Mike, but he had already booked it out of there and headed to the concession area to have room to breathe! Megan and everyone else went out there to meet him, where he explained the story of how "THE RING" came to be.

The Ring

Megan's Ring is made up of many different diamonds. The diamond in the middle is one that Mike bought especially for Megan. The diamond on the left is a diamond from a ring that his paternal grandmother, Grandma Taft, gave him that was from her Aunt Mildred and had been passed down through the family. The diamond on the right is a diamond from Megan's maternal grandmother, from a ring that Megan's dad had made for her mom. The diamonds on the side (and the diamonds in the wedding band) are also from the two rings. Upon hearing this (and upon typing the explanation, and every time she thinks about it), Megan burst into tears and realized just how worth the wait this all was, and how lucky she is!

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 Katarina,

Just thought you would like to see pictures of the dresses that you altered. The dresses were perfect. You can see Rebecca's maid of honour dress along with the other bridesmaids. You can also see what my daughter Candice's wedding dress looked like.

The wedding was on August 14th and it was a most beautiful day.

Thank you so much for your wonderful work. You made us look so good. In fact one of my coworkers wants to buy the same dress that I had.

I will refer people to Best for Bride and to you.

Many thanks
Janet Kamienik

Miranda Grey had a Phenomenal Experience

So Miranda, tell us about your experience at Best for Bride.
It's been phenomenal. I have come in. I did not really have much an idea of what I wanted. The girls were able to pick off the shelves, kind of twick what my preferences were and tell me what body shape was going to work best for me.
In general, they were just totally patient with me. The whole experience was phenomenal and I cannot wait to come back and be fitted for my dress. Wonderful, thank you so much.

Allison Mcdonald experience with Best for Bride - didn't come expecting to find a wedding dress

I love to shovel because I just spent I don't know how many hours at Best for Brides.
So tell us why you came to Best for Bride?
I'm on a very strict budget and I honestly didn't think that I was gonna find anything that I could afford and I saw online that this offered the most variety and I think for the best prices. I was so surprised.
So your experience was good?
Oh my gosh. Beyond good. It started all a little rough because I didn't know what I wanted I did not know what style. Donna came in and she just took over. In the end it's amazing how it happened because Donna just took the best in every dress I have tried on and put it all in one and I couldn't have asked for anything better. I am so over the moon happy right now I could cry again. Ah yeah the far better than I have ever expected this experience to be. So thank you Donna. Thank you Best for Brides because it's has been absolutely incredible. I didn't come expecting to find a dress and here we are ... going home happy.
