My fiance Craig and I have been together for almost 3 amazing years by the time of his proposal. This past Christmas we chose to go on a shopping spree to buy what ever we wanted instead of the traditional gift giving. When Christmas morning arrived we woke up relaxed and excited our 6 month old puppy Bentley. Talking to him like a toddler I grabbed his very own stocking and assisted to sneak his head in and grab his goodies. At the same time Craig was excited with Bentley, nothing out of the ordinary. Suddenly he says, "We'll it's time to look for your gift, it is in, on or around the Christmas tree." I was confused at the idea of this as we had planned no gift giving and not to mention that I had not noticed anything around the tree. Craig convinced me to search otherwise. I walked over and glanced at the window ledge behind the tree...nothing there. As there was nothing hanging or sticking in between branches of the tree either. I became frustrated, grabbed and ornam ent and said, "All I see are these darn ornaments!" Still, i was clueless to the little rattling sound of the ornament, thinking it was just it's material hanging in the inside. This particular ornament was shaped like a bell and covered in different patterns of silver beads, thus the assumption of the rattling sound. Meanwhile, Craig is thinking something along the lines of, "Come on, seriously?" He asked me what was on the ornament. I still was oblivious to it that he grabbed the ornament from me, took off the ring hanging on the top of the ornament through the loop of string. MY EYES POPPED! Craig kneeled on one knee and lol I quote says, "Now, I have a question..... Will you marry me?" All I could says of course was 'yes,' but nothing immediately following as I was blown by his proposal. I always thought I would cry when this day came but the surprise took over! AND on final note, the ring had been hanging there for a few days! Oh and he decided to take the opportunity to propose after we decided no gifts for each other this year. Really had no idea:)

So now our big day is to take place on September 22, 2012.

One photo attached is the ornament with the ring laying right on top of it and they blended realllllly well that I couldn't tell.

Picking my wedding dress from Best for Bride was completely painless. I was a little discouraged at first and wasn't loving the dress. Everyone wanted me to choose when the sales associate Natalia asked me if I had tried on a certain dress. When I responded "no", she told me to try it on and that it was going to be my dress. She was right!! I was crying before I left the changeroom, and once my mom and wedding party saw it and started crying I knew I had found the dress. I kept losing weight leading up until the wedding and alterations was great, fitting the dress exactly how I wanted it. When I walked down the aisle and my husband started to cry I knew then just how perfect the dress was. Thank you so much for making me feel like a princess on my wedding day!!!!

Sincerely,
Melissa Filice

When I was looking for the bridal gown, Best for Bride Toronto was the first salon I walked in. The first - and the only one.

I think I tried on over dozen of gowns, and Alla was helping me with my fitting and the little details.

Consultants were patient and helpful, the fittings went great, and it was easy to make appointments that fitted my schedule.
My dress was amazing and reasonably priced.

Thank you so much for helping make my wedding the best day of my life!
Yulia

Jen Thomptson thinks staff at Best For Bride is extremely helpful

How was your experience at Best For Bride today?
It was amazing, the staff were very helpful, they have a very huge selection and they will help you with anything that you need, tell you a honest opinion about the dress and they will come up with different options to ones that you don't even think that you will like and that's what happened to me. I saw one, didn't think I liked it, put it on and I'm getting it. So they are extremely helpful here and there is a huge selection of dresses.
Thank you very 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.
