Agree the term is used sometimes in the wrong way. I feel like just because I simply didn’t like something doesn’t mean I am a bridezilla. I always feel bad if I ask to change something just simply because I don’t want to be seen as a bridezilla. I can’t imagin’ asking my BM to put their lifes on hold just for my day.

Those girls you described sound crazy!  One of my BMs actually referred to me as a "Bridezilla" and not affectionately.  I’m not getting married until Oct. 2010 but I have already picked out my BM dresses.  She didn’t want to order her dress until much much later, but it takes about 5 months for them to come in.  It hurt my feelings!  I agree — I think the term gets thrown around pretty loosely nowadays.

I completely agree! The phrase is so common  now that I feel is gets used all the time, which isn’t fair. I definitely don’t consider myself a bridezilla. I’m taking the punches as they roll and trying to stay calm about everything because I know, in the end, it’s not about the centerpieces or the cake, it’s about us getting married.

But, with that said, I am putting a lot of money into some things, so I want them done right (at the very least, within some spectrum of what my original idea was). If I speak up, I fear people will start calling me bridezilla, which isn’t entirely appropriate!

I think it has a lot to do with gender as well. I hate saying it because I’m not one to generalize things like this, but I’m pretty sure if a groom asked that flowers be changed, bridezilla, or groomzilla, wouldn’t be applied.

It really irritates me when a bride is called bridezilla by her vendors just because she wants things how she wants it. Not to be rude, but we’re paying for your services! If we want things a certain way, how about you go ahead and do that for us? There’s a HUGE difference between knowing what you want and not being afraid to ask for it and being a bridezilla. Bridezillas aren’t pleased by anything they see and are generally miserable people!
