I’ve seriously been trying so hard to not become a bridezilla. I’ve been pretty easy going, several of the bridesmaids have even told me this. A couple of them even commented of my “go with the flow” attitude and how they are stressing more than I am. My mom on the other hand, thinks I’m wedding obsessed, she thinks I’m crazy, and she told me today that I’ve been a bitch “since all of this wedding crap started.” It really hurts my feelings because I’ve gone so far out of my way to try not to be. I keep reflecting and looking at situations to reevaluate my behavior. She can’t stand seeing me on wedding related websites, she has a nasty comment every time she sees me on one. I’m a total type A and she’s not maybe she thinks my organization is over the top… Maybe she’s upset because she her mother threw her wedding together in 3 months and she didn’t have the wedding she really wanted… I don’t know what it is but I just had to vent! Anyone else having similar issues?

Sorry you’re having problems. If she is the only one commenting you may be on to something. Do you guys otherwise have a good relationship? Maybe that’s her way of asking you that she would like to be more included? Good luck!

That sucks. I am sorry that she is being mean to you. My family is pretty supportive. My dad was a little negative at first, but I think that was because he just bought me a new car, and feels bad that he couldn’t afford a wedding. (That was totally fine with us, we make enough money and can pay for the whole thing ourselves, although FI’s parents and my mom and stepfather are helping) I have had my freak out moments, like when the altered my dress 3-4 inches too short, and my family just tried to make things better, like talking to the shop for me so I don’t end up yelling at the shop. My mom even goes on the computer with me and looks at wedding stuff and reads the wedding bee boards.

Yes!!! I am very type A as well, I am go with the flow, as long as its organized. I’m not good with suprises or spur of the moment desicions. I think I have been very easy going, but everyone has bets I will be a super Bitch when we get closer to the wedding. It is very annoying but I figure I just have to work hard to prove them wrong! I’m sorry about your mom, that is really annoying!

I got called a bridezilla for wanting to pick out one of the three flavors at our cake tasting :/. I talked to my mom about how I didn’t want to be called that for caring about something as important as my wedding, and she hasn’t used the b-word since.
Maybe you should try just directly confronting her about it. Maybe she’s bitter or maybe she thinks you’re not including her enough or maybe it’s something else entirely. Whatever it is, it would definitely be better to have it out in the open instead of her just taking digs at you :(. *hugs*
