yeah, my sister called me a bridezilla. Ok, the story is that I booked my reception at a place and I ended up cancelling because the I couldn’t afford to supply my guests beer and wine bar at $30 extra per person. (I ended up finding a caterer that allowed us to buy our own beer and liquor.) Any way, I was hoping to get some of my deposit back. I know I wasn’t going to but I said to my sister that I was hoping because of the economy that this reception site might give us some money back. Well it didn’t happen. (I was just talking to her about and doing a little wishful thinking.) Well my sister got all annoyed that we were taking advantage of the state of the economy. She said people everywhere are stuggling. I understood that but she went on to say that people who can afford to buy things, should not expect to find a good deal.
So basicly what she was saying that if I go out to buy a car, that if the sale price reads XXX amount, that I shouldn’t pay for that sale price, I should pay more for it because I’m not affected by the economy. (Who is she to tell me that I’m not affected by the economy? )
WTF? Are you serious? Yeah, so she said I was a bridezilla because I was trying to find the best deals and that I wasn’t happy that I couldn’t find better deals.
Yeah, she complained about some other things too. Like I asked her to be one of my bridesmaids. Well, she said she couldn’t afford it right now so she offered to be wedding help. She said she could be doing things behind the scenes. Well, I started asking her for some favors. She did one or two things like picking up some items for me. (I was an out of state bride.) Then she threw a trantrum about me pissing off craigslist people. Ok, I saw some vases I wanted and I ended up changing my mind about them. She threw a fit that I wasn’t considerate of people trying to make a living off of craigslist. Yes, I understand where she is coming from but I was going to get vases that was going to cost me $5 total. That’s it! I can see if I was going to buy something big like over $100 but.. really $5?
Anyway, from all of that, I stopped asking her for help. I didn’t talk to her at all. We finally apologized to each other like 2 days before the wedding.
hehe sorry.. this is long.
Edit: Yeah, I didn’t realize you were asking for bridezilla stories. I wanted to post that my sister, too, called me a bridezilla when I don’t think I was.
Oh, to OP, I too have 2 sisters and I couldn’t chose between them at the time… so I went with a friend. I don’t think my sisters were mad. I know my older sister was understanding on why I didn’t choose one of them.
