Which do you most resemble? Will the world come to a screaming halt if something does not work as planned or are you the type who just wants to be married and don’t care about anything else?
In a related discussion, what is your view on why every single wedding vendor insists up one side and down the other that every bride everywhere is bridezilla and that she’s delusional if she claims she’s not and that her wedding will be a disaster if it doesn’t include X, Y, and Z that “all weddings must have to be legitimate and legal” that the couple may not have any use for or even want?

Totally the laid back bride. I’m excited for our ceremony and want to have fun, I cannot wait for our honeymoon.
I think vendors insist that every bride wants things a certain way because they like to paint a magical picture that might make someone spend more $$. I am certainly not someone who ever thought of my wedding day growing up. If I ever did, it was, “Yeah right, not ever happening!” Haha.

I think there’s a spectrum between zilla and zen. I definately find myself more on the zen side of that spectrum, but I’d be lying if I said I don’t have my zilla moments. There are some things that I will hold tight to. But there are others that I simply don’t have an opinion about. I’m also pretty aware that it’s not all going to go perfectly my way, but I’ll be happy to be along for the ride.

I kind agree with superbrooke. I think there has to be an between point. I actually have been doing event planning before I got engaged for others so when it comes down to my special day I do want things the way I want them.
No am I going to scream? No…throw fits? Of course not. I will just roll with the punches and make it work out to the best of my ability. I don’t want to be stressed about silly things that will not make or break my day but at the same time it would be nice if things worked out for the most part…

I think leading up to the wedding I”ll be kind of at a mid-point. i do definitely care about the details and I’ll work my butt off to make things go well… but I am not requiring much at all of those around me because I understand it is MY wedding not theirs. That being said, I think I will be (and hope I will be) 100% zenbride on the day of. My philosophy going in is that at some point whats done is done and what isn’t won’t be and at the end of the day we’ll be married so f the rest.
