So I got called a bridezilla a few days ago and it really hurt my feelings. I am not sure if my friend really meant it or if she was kidding.
This is what happened: I walked in to class Friday evening and I told a few of my bridesmaids that I had just made an appointment with David’s Bridal for the following Friday at 3:30 pm. They were really excited for me. Then one of them asks when they need to start looking for their dresses and I told her as soon as possible because the lady at David’s Bridal said it takes 12 weeks for their dresses to get to the store. (Weird? Did it take you that long to get bridesmaid dresses?) So then she asked what color the dresses were going to be and I said that they were going to be red evening gowns. She made a comment like “Please don’t force us to wear quincenera dressess”. I was kind of puzzled so I just said “No lol I am the one wearing the poofy dress. You guys will be wearing long red evening gowns.” Then she told me she didn’t like long dresses because it makes her look shorter than she really is and the other bridesmaid agreed. But then the first girl said that she would prefer short dresses but they make her look fatter so she doesn’t know what she would want to wear. She also told me not to make them buy an expensive dress because she has a baby and money is really tight but that it was my wedding so “she didn’t really have a say in anything”. I was really hurt by that comment. I responded with “I am letting you guys choose the dress. So whatever you guys choose will be in your price range. I just would prefer for you all to agree on one dress.” Then she said “Okay bridezilla!” I think she could tell she hurt me because then she said she was “just kidding.” I just said oh okay and said I needed to go finish my work.
Now in retrospect I am thinking that I want them to have different dresses as long as they are the same color and length. I thinkt that would look prettier and work perfectly with the vintage theme we are having. Plus, that way I don’t have to worry about someone not being able to afford a dress that everyone but one person likes etc,etc. What do you think about this idea and what she said? I wasn’t being rude about anything. Was I? My fiance just really want a formal vintage wedding. We are even having the music and decorations match a forties wedding.
