Wait…what kind of dance rehearsals are you having?

My daughter’s are getting married 15 months apart. Since they both work full time+, I’ve spent uncountable hours helping them with planning and details. I’ve joked that I’m going to write a soap opera about it, eventually, in the comfort of my room in the local state institution. But we all will get through it …

MissyDarcy:  Just make it down that aisle.  Then you can graduate from bridezilla to nag!  😉

No seriously, are you making your wedding party go to dance rehearsals?

I guess I am still confused…what are they rehearsing for?

Dance rehearsals? I’d complain too.

Honestly I think you’re overreacting.. None of this sounds like a big deal. There must be more to the story if you’re being referred to as a bridezilla, is there something in your reactions to these situations that could be causing people to feel this way?

MissyDarcy:  Girl…I hear you.  I’ve always been a believer of “if you want something done right, do it yourself” and this is my wedding, so it’s important to me. 

I almost feel like the MORE liberty you give people, the LESS you get done.  In the begining, I was like you, “whatever you want” and “you have creative liberty” were my go to answers.  That lead to NOTHING being done!  Not in regards to my bridal party, but my vendors.

Well, I’ve been in numerous weddings and never had to rehearse dancing. And learning what order to walk into the ceremony takes all of five minutes the night before. So maybe they don’t want to be obligated to do all that? I’m with KC-2722: there must be more to this story.

sarals24:  One time I was in a ceremony and they didn’t even teach me how to walk! I was all on my own, believe it or not I made it down the aisle without shaming them.

Dance rehearsals sound a bit weird, but considering OP said multiple times now that her bridal party party requested it, not her, maybe we should move on from that?

And somewhat surprisingly, ceremony rehearsals are not uncommon, so not sure why that’s a big deal for OP to have one.

OP, nothing from your first post strikes me as “bridezilla.”  People can just go kick rocks.
