Good post!

I am really sick of the term “bridezilla”.  I agree that this is a selfish, immature person.  I have been called that several times when I asserted myself.  If I am paying $$$ for something, it’s going to be the way I want.  If the BMs can’t make up their minds about a dress, I am making the call, because it IS my wedding.  And then I will ask the bridal shop to meet a competitor’s price and save everyone $40 bucks.

This is a really good post and i 1000% agree with it. There is a huge difference between knowing what you want and asking for it and being a Bridezilla.

I also tend to think those who truly are Bridezillas aren’t pleasant people in their everyday lives anyways!

OMG AMEN!! i totally agree with this. drives me nuts when having an “opinion” that is different from anyone else, you are automatically called bridezilla.

seriously this is a ton of money to spend on ONE DAY. and its a day that is really important. and if i want something i want something. no i am not being unreasonable to ask that people only bring people that are invited (sorry thats what we can afford) and no i dont want those centerpieces, because i am allergic to and cant stand the look or smell of these types of flowers.

honestly, if i am not being rude, or not asking people to do something unreasonable PLEASE dont refer to me as a bridezilla or biotch. seriously. so gets to me!

 

AMEN girl, AMEN.

I think of the term as bridezilla as someone who is acting disrespectfully to others.  You should definitely be able to bring up legitimate issues and concerns, as long as you do so politely (yet assertively) you are definitely not a bridezilla.  However if you are deliberately trying to find fault with others, being overly demanding about things that are unreasonable, or making personal attacks/being rude when you point out your concerns then I think regardless of whether you are getting married you might need a little perspective.
