lol I’m not. I see bridezilla as a compliment. I’m a bitch though. If someone calls me a bridezilla then so be it. That means shit is getting done correctly. >_>

but if it bothers you, you should say something. Be firm. Tell them you don’t find it funny at all and if they can’t respect that then they can get the stepp’n. You might get called a bridezilla for that though….

I agree. My mother turned into the momzilla to end all momzillas in the last few weeks before my wedding. We got into an argument a couple days before the wedding because she was talking down to me and I asked her not to talk to me like a child. I wasn’t even rude about it but she flipped, it got heated and she called me a bridezilla.

I was so pissed.

I hate, hate, HATE the term bridezilla. In fact, I wrote a whole post about it a few months back.

Why should we be saddled with an offensive nickname just because we want our wedding (on which we are spending THOUSANDS of dollars) to be just how we want it?

@Miss Tattoo:I like it.

 

 

@HardyPooleParty: I have a friend who does this to me if I even mention the word wedding, even if she brings it up! It bugs me, too.

I think throwing around ‘bridezilla’ is mean and hurtful to brides. However, I think there are moments when we all need to EMBRACE our bridezilla and, as Miss Tattoo said, get shit done properly!

I have been (so say the girls) extremely laid back. I had one Bridezilla moment and I do not regret A THING:

I told the store where the girls were getting their dresses that I would need samples in sizes 10-16 because I have some very busty girls. They ASSURED me all would be well. I confirmed that with them the day of the fitting. They ASSURED me all woudl be well. Running late to the fitting, I got a call in the cab from my punctual (busty) bridesmaid.

The dresses were all in size eight.

 

Upon arrival I channeled my inner Bridezilla and made the individual responsible cry. Consequently the girls all got discounted dresses. Sometimes shit has to get done properly!

Yeah, I was called a bridezilla for wanting to choose one out of three cake flavors for a tasting. I think it’s just a way for people to instantly emotionally manipulate you.

Some people really do go crazy and might deserve the term, but most of us are very stable individuals trying to plan one of the most important occasions of our life.

My mom called me Bridezilla this AM meaning to be hurtful b/c she sent out my shower invites and “forgot” to mention its a surprise…and 3 people have already almost told me when the shower was. My mom’s response? “oh well. If you find out about it, then you find out”. All I said was “Ma, did you by chance forget to put “surprise shower” on my shower invite? people keep almost telling me when the shower is…?”

in that case, no, i’d rather not be called Bridezilla by Momzilla LOL

I have not been called bridezilla yet, but I feel like I will be soon. I feel like sometimes brides do get a little out of line, because while a wedding is important to you, it’s not the center of the world for everyone. People working with weddings probably deal with a hundred brides or more during wedding season, and they are only human. But, I do not think it is appropriate to call someone names for A) Them wanting you to do your job B) Them making sure things are going smoothly and on time C) Insisting you fix a problem (actual not imagined). Although, I have a fairly good sense of humor, if someone is just joking then I am usually willing to laugh along. Snarkiness however is not something that I will put up with from someone I am paying to provide a service. lol
