>>KALINA: Thank you for having us.
>>MALE HOST: You're beautiful, by the way.
>>KALINA: Thank you.
>>MALE HOST: And we're here to talk about beautiful things, weddings.
>>KALINA: Absolutely. Yes we do. We have five brides, and I would like to showcase them for us.
>>MALE HOST: Are you going to be talking about some of the trends that are available ...
>>KALINA: Absolutely!
>>MALE HOST: ... things that are going to be happening in bride land?
>>KALINA: Well vintage is very key right now.
>>MALE HOST: Oh, okay.
>>KALINA: And our first bride will definitely will showcase that. Come on down.
>>MALE HOST: Okay, great.
[First bride walks in.]
>>MALE HOST: Wow, that's beautiful. That's really beautiful.
>>KALINA: We also do rent dresses.
>>MALE HOST: Now yes, so the ... talk to me a little bit about Best for Bride Toronto, because you've got a few store, right?
>>KALINA: Yes.
>>MALE HOST: And then you can rent dresses ...
>>KALINA: We can rent.
>>MALE HOST: ... and you can buy dresses ...
>>KALINA: Absolutely.
>>MALE HOST: ... and even online.
>>KALINA: Yeah, definitely.
>>MALE HOST: This is great. So talk to me about this dress particularly.
>>KALINA: Well it's vintage, and the beading is absolutely amazing. It comes in three different lengths so that you save on alterations.
>>MALE HOST: Now as far as when you say "vintage." like, uh, what, is it the lace that makes it vintage? It's not an old dress.
>>KALINA: Yeah, it's just the style.
>>MALE HOST: It's like, it's not an old dress, it's a new dress made to look vintage, right?
>>KALINA: No, no it's not. And it also has a detachable train.
>>MALE HOST: Oh, okay. So when she goes down the aisle she can wear the train ...
>>KALINA: Exactly.
>>MALE HOST: ... and then for dancing, later on that night for dancing ...
>>KALINA: Exactly.
>>MALE HOST: This is beautiful. And it's not, it's not like a Lady Di train where it's gonna, you're gonna be tripping up on it all, right?
>>KALINA: Exactly. Right, yeah.
>>MALE HOST: And does that clip up if you want? No, I guess that's too ...
>>KALINA: Absolutely. You do a bustle like that.
>>MALE HOST: Okay. That's perfect. And it's a, I guess it's a sweetheart, uh, neckline, is that what you called it?
>>KALINA: Yes it is. Absolutely.
>>MALE HOST: Really nice. I love that, that's a beautiful, beautiful dress. And it's not white white.
>>KALINA: No, it's ivory.
>>MALE HOST: Now in the winter, does people ... do people tend to go ivory, or do they wear white white still?
>>KALINA: Um, it all depends on skin tone.
>>MALE HOST: Okay.
>>KALINA: So you just go with that instead of the season, definitely.
>>MALE HOST: Yeah, because you've got, like, a lot of like golds and caramels in your skin, in skin. So this ivory looks amazing on you.
[Kalina claps.]
>>MALE HOST: Thank you very much.
>>KALINA: Thank you.
[First bride exits, second bride enters.]
>>KALINA: Now we have another Mori Lee dress.
>>MALE HOST: This is done by who?
>>KALINA: Mori Lee.
>>MALE HOST: Mori Lee?
>>KALINA: Yep. And the other one was as well.
>>MALE HOST: Okay, so ...
>>KALINA: And this is the ...
>>MALE HOST: ...you've got the lace underneath this one. Okay.
>>KALINA: Exactly. It's Mori Lee Julietta, and it comes up to a 36 in size.
>>MALE HOST: Okay. Oh you're got some beautiful accessories, you've got a pretty necklace on.
>>KALINA: We do rent those as well.
>>MALE HOST: Okay, so you can rent the accessories as well as your dress?
>>KALINA: Absolutely. Which is veil, and ...
>>MALE HOST: Because I, like, some of the costs of like, brides and dresses and accessories are, like, through the moon.
>>KALINA: I agree. I agree.
>>MALE HOST: Like we watch those shows, right? And I'm always like, the dress is ten thousand and this is five thousand, and yeah. It can get costly. But for, at your stores?
>>KALINA: A hundred dollars.
>>MALE HOST: That's incredible. Like, you've got a great range, right? So if ... what is a bride ... what is the range? What should a bride be looking at spending for, say a dress?
>>KALINA: Uh, between five to two thousand. Yeah.
>>MALE HOST: Well, well that's quite affordable I think.
>>KALINA: Yeah, I agree.
>>MALE HOST: So that's, yeah that's quite affordable. So, how do you feel, do you feel like a bride?
>>BRIDE 2: I sure do.
[Laughter.]
>>KALINA: Mori Lee knows what they're doing.
[More laughter.]
>>MALE HOST: Yeah, it's really beautiful.
>>KALINA: Absolutely.
>>MALE HOST: That's great. Nice. And you've got a little train too.
>>KALINA: Yep!
>>MALE HOST: Thank you very much.
[Bride 2 exits, Bride 3 enters.]
>>MALE HOST: Okay, And our next up ... this is more mermaid?
>>KALINA: This is another Mori Lee. Yeah, this is a trumpet style.
>>MALE HOST: Trumpet?
>>KALINA: With a little more bling bling.
>>MALE HOST: So pretty. It's really pretty.
>>KALINA: Yeah. And it has a tied back.
>>MALE HOST: How do you feel in this dress?
>>BRIDE 3: Amazing.
[Bride 3 laughs.]
>>MALE HOST: Yeah, it looks ... it's beautiful, beautiful. Yeah, I love this. Now would you ever in a store ... would you ever ... if someone came in and said you know, like I want a short one or like a dress, they tried on a dress they thought they looked good, but you, like, they really didn't. Would you coach them on that?
>>KALINA: Absolutely. Not only that, however, bride's come in with a vision, and then they walk out with a totally different dress that they were not even expecting.
>>MALE HOST: Oh really? So sometimes they'll come in with one idea and then leave completely ...
>>KALINA: Absolutely. Yeah, 'cuz ...
>>MALE HOST: Okay, now the ... Now do you ever get grooms in? Like the, uh, what is the, fiancé?
>>KALINA: Sometimes yes, and then I tell them to stay away.
>>MALE HOST: Skedaddle?
>>KALINA: Exactly, yes.
>>MALE HOST: This is gorgeous. Thank you very much.
>>KALINA: Thank you.
[Third bride exits, Fourth bride enters.]
>>KALINA: Now we have a destination wedding dress.
>>MALE HOST: So like if she's going to the North Pole kind of destination?
[Laughter.]
>>KALINA: Well, you tell me.
>>MALE HOST: No, I wouldn't say she'd wear that at the North Pole.
>>KALINA: Exactly.
>>MALE HOST: That's really pretty.
>>KALINA: It's also a Mori Lee dress, and ...
>>MALE HOST: So this would be perfect for like a beach wedding ...
>>KALINA: Absolutely, yes.
>>MALE HOST: ... because it's so goddess-ey, like Greek goddess flowy. How do you feel in that dress?
>>BRIDE 4: It's nice and light. It's a beautiful dress.
>>MALE HOST: Yeah. Yeah now what about packing for, packing this dress if you're going on a destination? Will this wrinkle it too ... I guess you'd have to get it steamed.
>>KALINA: Well yeah, you'd get it steamed. Absolutely.
>>MALE HOST: I love the detail, like the ... are these all crystals?
>>KALINA: Yes they are.
>>MALE HOST: Everyone needs a little bling. And this is chiffon?
>>KALINA: Yeah.
>>MALE HOST: Beautiful. Really beautiful.
>>KALINA: Thank you.
>>MALE HOST: Now, uh, is this cleanable? Well because if you're getting married on the beach you're gonna get sand.
>>KALINA: Absolutely. We also offer steaming, cleaning and boxing the wedding dress.
>>MALE HOST: What's the biggest challenge a bride has right, today, would you say?
>>KALINA: Getting along with her parents.
>>MALE HOST: Her in-laws.
[Lots of laughter.]
>>MALE HOST: Now do you get a lot of bridezillas in your stores?
>>KALINA: Uh, no. No.
>>MALE HOST: You can tell me later.
[Laughter.]
>>KALINA: Yeah, exactly. Thank you.
[Bride number four exits, Bride number five enters.]
>>KALINA: Now we have Alfred Angelo, and that is the Belle dress.
>>MALE HOST: Wow, look at this.
>>KALINA: Fairy tale wedding.
>>MALE HOST: So pretty!
[Clapping from Kalina.]
>>MALE HOST: So pretty! So, oh, so this is the ... so for the flower girl?
>>KALINA: Yeah, that's the flower girl and that's the bride.
>>MALE HOST: Wow, look at this.
>>KALINA: And it's a Disney dress.
>>MALE HOST: A Disney dress?
>>KALINA: Yeah.
>>MALE HOST: So like ...
>>KALINA: From Beauty and the Beast.
>>MALE HOST: Oh, okay. So it's inspired by that. Okay, wow.
>>KALINA: Yeah.
>>MALE HOST: Now how do you feel in this dress?
>>BRIDE 5: Like a princess!
>>MALE HOST: A princess!
[Kalina ooohs and laughs.]
>>MALE HOST: And how do you feel in the dress, do you like the dress?
>>FLOWER GIRL: Yes.
>>KALINA: Yes.
>>MALE HOST: Do you feel like a princess? Well you look like a princess.
>>BRIDE 5: She's the mini version of me.
>>MALE HOST: Yeah, so this is ... it's basically the same dress, just two different ...
>>KALINA: Yep. Absolutely.
>>MALE HOST: Now do brides typically mimic their dress with the flower girl?
>>KALINA: Usually with fairytale weddings, yes.
>>MALE HOST: Fairytale.
>>KALINA: Yeah.
>>MALE HOST: Wow, yeah, you do ... well, you're a princess. I wanna be a princess.
[Laughter.]
>>MALE HOST: This is, yeah ... does this ... this must pile, this dress here. Because its got a lot of stuff, a lot of dress.
>>KALINA: It is a lot of a dress, yes.
>>MALE HOST: Maybe turn around. That would ... you would hopefully get that to bustle up, right?
>>KALINA: Absolutely.
>>MALE HOST: Because it would be hard to dance in something like that I would think.
>>KALINA: It's a showstopper. Yep.
>>MALE HOST: It really is.
>>KALINA: We do have in-home, in-house seamstresses that can bustle it up for you.
>>MALE HOST: Oh, okay, so you can ... okay. Yeah, um, if I was a bride looking for that dress, how soon in advance of their wedding should they be coming in to see you?
>>KALINA: You should give yourself about six months.
>>MALE HOST: Okay.
>>KALINA: And a month for fitting.
>>MALE HOST: Okay. Now do you ever get last minute brides?
>>KALINA: Absolutely.
>>MALE HOST: Thank you very much.
>>KALINA: Absolutely.
>>MALE HOST: So, and so do you have stock available so that if somebody's like, oh, I gotta get married now. I just got married now. Do you have stock available?
[Fifth bride exits.]
>>KALINA: Well Mori Lee is very kind to us, and we work along with them, and they do have some stock. So it all depends on the style of the dress. But they do help us out for sure.
>>MALE HOST: Oh that's amazing. Now you also have a website available, and I went on it earlier. And you have not only bride's dresses, you've got all kinds. Tell us a little bit about what other things you have.
>>KALINA: Well we have decor, we have gift cards and ...
>>MALE HOST: Like lots of accessories?
>>KALINA: Exactly, yes.
>>MALE HOST: And also the ... even if you're going out for a night on the town, a fancy night, you've got some evening gowns as well, correct?
>>KALINA: Absolutely. Bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride.
>>MALE HOST: Any last minute tips for brides?
>>KALINA: Um, don't stress out.
>>MALE HOST: Okay, terrific. terrific. Well thank you very much.
>>KALINA: You're very welcome.
>>MALE HOST: Ladies, beautiful. Come on in, give a last walk. Yeah, really beautiful. I want to get married now.
[Laughter.]
[Brides One and Two enter.]
>>MALE HOST: Although, who's going to marry me?
[Laughter.]
>>MALE HOST: Thank you very much.
>>KALINA: Thank you.

Dear 'Best for Bride' and Olga,

Thank you so much for your help with my bridesmaids dresses. The assistance was brilliant (hence why I came to you to buy the dresses and did not buy them from Scotland where we live!) I was always kept up to date on the progress of the dresses as well as being given the opportunity to twice send the dresses back and order other sizes. My bridesmaids looked wonderful and everyone commented how lovely their dresses were.

I would recommend using your company to all of my friends in the future. Best of luck for the future and please find pictures attached.

Dear Olga,
I would like to say how much I enjoyed using your company to order my bridesmaids dresses from.
From the first contact I had immediate responses from you with answers to my enquiries regarding sizes, colour, cost delivery- everything was answered that day or the day after due to the time difference.
When I called the shop I got a very good response as well- cannot fault anything about the ordering process.
Very straight forward and easy to do as you supported me and helped me with all my enquiries.
I was kept in contact the whole time waiting for my dresses so there was no worry that they were not going to be here on time - which is a bit of a concern when I order something from the internet and especially something so important but I felt very confident I had chosen the best company to buy them from.
When the dresses came I was delighted with them! They were absolutely perfectly made and even more lovely than in the picture! They were slightly crushed as I had 2 dresses in a small box but the creases fell out overnight and the dresses were stunning. My bridesmaids loved them and looked absolutely beautiful on our day
I was so proud of them and everyone commented at how beautiful they looked. You can see in the pictures just how lovely they were.
It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Olga throughout my order and she could not have been more helpful and more prompt at replying to my emails and enquiries. I'm not sure who I spoke to on the phone but they were helpful too.
Overall I experienced an absolute delightful customer service and excellent quality of dresses and made our wedding day just that extra bit special
Many thanks for all your help and I will be recommending you to all of my friends

Best wishes,
Carolyn

Amanda Ugarkovic highly recommends Best for Bride

So tell me about your experience at Best for Bride.
Well, I spent some time in the big city. I thought may be I can go there and find some styles and being a little larger was not exactly easy but I came to Barrie, saw the girls at Best for Bride and they hooked me up. I had a much better experience, so much more fun and the girls really listened to what you want and you can be goofy and it is fun and it is OK. It does not have to be a stressful experience. So I would highly recommend and if you are looking for a gown and for a good time come to Best for Bride.

Wonderful, thank you.
