Keith & Jackie Engagement Proposal - Can't Wait To Spend The Rest of their Lives Together

The first time I laid eyes on Jackie, she was hosting a karaoke show on stage in a bar. Being the hot DJ she is, I was sure many guys approached her, but I took my chances and asked her out to dinner. To my surprise she said yes! Now, we hadn't planned on it, but our first date ended up being on April Fools Day; April 1st. I took her to a sushi restaurant even though I didn't eat seafood but had found out this was her favorite. Everything was going great, until Jackie was called to fill in at another karaoke show. I said I didn't mind, so we continued the date during the show. We ended up having a blast, and in my opinion the first date never truly ended. 3.5 years later, we are happier then ever! She's truly the light in my life. After moving across Canada together, getting a new apartment and jobs, we now both run the karaoke business. Every show we host together is like being on our first date all over again. It's wonderful! So it was only fitting that I propose during one of our shows. On the night I had planned to propose, I wore a t-shirt underneath another shirt that said, "Will You Marry Me?" At midnight during the show, it would also be Jackie's 28th birthday (Sept. 3) so when the clock struck twelve, I exposed my t-shirt and got down on one knee. The moment was so exciting as everyone jumped up in the bar and started snapping pictures all around us. Once I put the ring on Jackie's finger, she then took off her shirt and exposed a tank top that read "YES!". I thought maybe she had just been wearing that tank top for the past 6 months or more (we had done some light ring shopping about 8 months before the proposal). Turns out, Jackie's sneaky and had called some ring stores in our town which we had visited. She actually tricked one of the stores into telling her that the ring I had chosen for her was on layaway. She called in to inquire about using a gift certificate on a recent ring purchase, and then gave my last name to have the purchase pulled up on the computer at the store. Before the store clerk had realized what Jackie was doing, she had already given out the information over the phone. My sneaky Jackie! So although she knew the ring was on layaway all summer, she technically didn't know when I would propose (perhaps I shouldn't have proposed on her birthday). After the proposal, I went back to the ring store and let them know what had happened. The store felt really bad and offered to give us a discount on the wedding bands. Apparently Jackie was the only girl to call in and attempt to find out information like that (if you're a future bride, don't ruin the surprise by doing this!)

I had the entire proposal captured on video so we could remember the moment forever:


In keeping with our first date, we set our wedding date for April 1st , 2012; April Fools Day! I used to joke with friends and family in saying that our relationship has just been a really long April Fools joke, but I supposed once we're married I'll have to stop that ;)

Keith Kozak & Jackie Oldford (soon to be Mrs. Kozak)

Jackie's side note: Ok, yes, I'm a snoop! But I couldn't help it! I wanted to know if he was going to get the ring I wanted! I sort of regret calling the store, but sort of not. If I could go back... perhaps I wouldn't have worn a shirt that said "YES", but at any rate, the ring is on my finger and Keith and I are madly in love and can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together :) That's all that matter.

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

To the Best for Bride team,

Jordan and I were married on October 11 2009. When he first saw me in my dress, he cried - it must have been all the emotion AND the stunning dress!!! I am so happy to have purchased my wedding dress at Best for Bride because it was an enjoyable process and the result was excellent. I did not feel the need to shop around to other stores because I knew immediately you had a great selection, fair prices and knowledgeable and friendly service. Your staff were helpful as I tried on dress after dress and the final alterations were a perfect fit. Now I am just looking for another occasion to wear this gorgeous dress!

Many thanks,
Jessica Chase

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.
