Seriously! balancing the need to please parents, family, wedding parties, guests, and most importantly, US I am just feeling stressed and, well, like a major Zilla! I want things MY way (which does include Mr. Hedgies wants) and wish I could tell everybody else to eff off and let me have my damn bacon bar and 10 ft centerpieces! And if I want Ke$ha played during the reception, well, darn it, I’m gonna let her “sing”. (Okay, I will admit, I shouldn’t like her music. But I do.)
Anybody else feeling like they are on the verge of Zilla-ism the closer they get to the wedding?

First of all, I am 100% in support of a bacon bar. I don’t know what it is… but who the hell doesn’t like bacon.
And yes I feel like a bridezilla sometimes. But I actually fell like less of a bridezilla the closer I get to my date.

Oh yeah. It’s tough! I work with weddings for my job, and I sent an email out the other day to a vendor of mine and a few to my (crazy) mother…. and immediately said, out loud, “I sounded like a bride. Holy shit!”.
🙂 Not just you!

i honestly don’t think that there’s anything wrong with wanting things done the way you see fit. i hate that as soon as you get even a little opinionated about something, you’re automatically labeled a bridezilla. everyone expects you to do all the work but will have little comments to say throughtout the entire process. ugh. oh well. if that makes me a bridezilla then rawr! 🙂

Who is Ke$ha? Ten foot tall centerpieces? LOL, You are cracking me up. I would love the bacon bar though, who doesn’t love bacon. Whoever said no to that, well, just not cool.

First off…I love Ke$ha and I’m playing one of her songs at my reception. I love the bacon bar idea! ; ) and 10 ft. centerpieces sound beautiful! lol
I know exactly how you feel….I wanted something soooo different than what I’m actually getting. I wanted a beach wedding, casual, outdoor reception, flip flops, bar b cue dinner, grass skirts for the tables…etc. I was told that was way too tacky so it has turned into a casual dressy event, with catered menu, indoor reception with linens…. haha
I feel like a bridezilla everytime I see some tacky outdoor beach favor or decoration! I threaten to change the whole thing and start over with what I want!
I can’t give you much advice, since I too feel like a bridezilla….but just hang in there! It’ll be worth it in the end, try to relax : )

you can’t please everyone, so just breathe! Bacon bar sounds awesome, i’ve never heard of one but sounds neat!
AND I LOVE KE$HA! She’s crazy. For example see below: who wouldn’t love this? 🙂 maybe play her music towards the end when the old folks leave, haha 🙂 hang in there!

My FI says I’m turning into a BZ but that’s because I don’t want certain things (like the cake inthe face and him taking the garter off with his teeth) ugh. He got upset and called me a BZ when I took too long choosing ribbon for my bridesmaids bouquets and turned down the one he randomly grabbed cause he was tired of standing there, lol. I never thought wanting things to be perfect for what the 2 of us want was being a BZ but I guess I am one =/

Yes I totally feel like a bridezilla but I wont admit it to ANYONE lol. obviously only you girls 😉 My SIL tried to tell me she is bringing her 3 month old son pick out bridesmaids dresses at a shop thats 2 HOURS away. (The issue is that she is 19, and I know she can get a babysitter- she just likes having him with her for show I swear it) I was so nice to her just saying I dont think a bridal salon is a great place for a baby and we are all (all 5 of my bridesmaids and I) are going to lunch after. And she said he sleeps alot. Now this is the FIRST thing we are all doing together. I creyed and freaked out on my FI about her being in the wedding. I felt like I syco after lol, it just pissed me off at the time. BRIDEZILLA moment for suree!

Hmm… I wonder if there is some way to get our caterers to do that instead of our other hors devours… Because, you have no IDEA how badly I have been wanting this! But, in all reality… his side of the family is Jewish… But, they aren’t kosher!!! Gah… maybe we will have that at my bridal shower or something.
And, who is Ke$ha??? Have you been living under a rock? She is a dirty, drugged out, drunk, pop star who can’t sing but somehow still manages to make amazing songs that make me want to party! lol

Um what is a bacon bar and how can I get invited to your wedding b/c that sounds awesome!

I’ve been on edge for the past month or two. With the wedding coming up next week, my plan is to leave it all behind when the rehearsal starts, and to just enjoy it from there. I will try very hard not to care about any last minute details that go wrong. Next weekend will be all about having fun with my husband.
And we’re going to play the S&M song by Rhianna. Yup.

Bacon bar!!! YUM. Bacon makes everything better. 🙂 but, yeah. I don’t know if I am a zilla, but I get really really stressed out. My stress makes SO stressed.
Mostly its my family – that’s being nice – its all my family. They haven’t provided us any support (emotional would be nice). There’s a ton of stuff. But the funniest for everyone else (and most stressful for me) is now my dad says his suit doesnt fit, but he’ll just rent a suit the morning of the wedding. on a saturday. in a city he has never been to. he’s gonna rent the shoes too, because taking an extra pair of shoes on the plain is just to much ?? ugh. I swear I have dreams he will walk down the aisle in his drawers.

@Mrs Hedgehog: Tell Mr. Hedgehog, the Night Shift is giving you the go ahead for the Bacon Bar. Then you could use something really awesome like this.

I can’t reply to this because I strongly dislike Ke$ha and bacon!! But I do agree that things should be the way you want them to be. Screw the others.
