We hear a lot of stories on here from Maids complaining that their brides went crazy etc…how do you know if you’re being a crazy bride. For those of you who haven’t noticed a trend in my posts (or read other posts) I’m a paranoid person – not clinical or anything but I’m one of those people who always thinks people are mad at me. I try very hard to be a considerate and caring person but I am currently paranoid that people think I’m a crazy bride.

@MsGinkgo: Signs you are bridezilla:
You encounter “wedding drama” on a frequent basis.
You deserve everything you want because it’s you special daaaaay.
Your friends and family are fashion accessories.
Your bridal party members are not meeting “expectations” even though you gave them an “honorable” title to be involved in your wedding.
You expect wedding vendors to respond to messages within minutes.
Your FI can’t talk to you about wedding stuff…or anything else. In fact, he hides when you enter the room.
If you don’t display any of these, YOU’RE FINE! 😀 Weddings are stressful but as long as you remember, it’s just one day, you’ll keep your sanity. The book “A Practical Wedding” really helped me remember what was most important and is the best vaccine for preventing bridezilla-itis.

well, let’s see.
No, No, No, No, Sometimes, occasionally….FH has gotten mad at me for bombarding him with wedding stuff the second he gets in the car after work, but I’m really really trying to stop that. I am impatient waiting for emails, but that’s because I tend to answer instantly. I don’t freak out when I don’t get an answer right away though

I’d say the signs are:
-As PP said, if you encounter frequent wedding drama. If you are having issues with your FMIL, FSIL, aunt, and multiple BMs, then the issue is probably with you and not them.
-You start judging how people spend their money and find yourself thinking, “Well Jane can afford to go out the bar, so she should be able to afford to throw me a shower.” Or, “Jane is so selfish. She claims she doesn’t have money for the BM dress I want, but some how she has money to go to a concert.”
-You start keeping track of how many wedding-related events a BM attends and use it to determine if she is a good friend and/or how big of a thank you gift to get. IE, deciding that since Jane hadn’t attended any dress fittings and didn’t help with any DIY projects, she doesn’t deserve the Coach clutch that the rest of the girls are getting.
-You think people need to just “suck it up” because it’s your special day. After all, you would clearly do the same for them (insert eye-roll)
-You find yourself constantly ignoring the budget
-You think wedding etiquette does not apply to you
-You get upset over the tiniest of details or mishaps
I don’t remember many of your posts, but I’m sure you’re fine and not a bridezilla.
