I had a few
one was when my videographer raised their price from $250 to $750 I didnt get it in writing, I was so upset, I wouldn’t call it a bridezilla moment but it was upsetting, I got them to reduce it to $700 in writing this time
one is when I found out my brother was going to leave the next day by 12NN, hello, last family reunion, I’m moving to europe we may never be in one spot again in our lives, I planned a nice brunch for family and friends, I was a little upset, so I made him change his ticket and his daughter’s (I covered the difference and covered the daughter’s fare too so she could come) I was just so upset he didnt think of that so it was extra money for me to spend and his daughter wasnt sure, so now their tickets were more expensive then they had to be, cost me a grand
another was when I found out a cousin said his son was coming, I met the son once and it was addressed Mr. and Mrs. it didn’t have a and family, yikes, good thing they only have one son, but man there goes $246
another was when my aunt said she’d come then declined then said she would; it’s like man, I can’t help it if people don’t get along, please don’t stress the bride!
then finding out my alterations cost more than my gown whoich was on sale; had I known I would have never purchased it or I would have asked how much alterations cost first, so upsetting; it’s beautiful though.
most I think has to do with budget because I’m so practical
but aside from budget, the wedding planning itself has made me so so happy

Probably when I decided to not have a kids table in the ballroom. It still makes me mad thinking about it. There are too many kids in our immediate families and I wanted it to be an adult event without kids running around. No one has really given me a hard time yet, but it’s our final decision so we might have a few heated discussions in the future. Of course we’re still feeding them and providing babysitters – in a separate room.

I’ve only had one.
I’ve been trying to find great deals online to keep my budget down so it’s been a huge headache trying to get the right things off ebay and other websites. I ordered some things off of papermart.com including favor bags. When I got them in the mail, I excitedly opened the box and pulled out the bags only to find that my favor boxes wouldn’t fit in them. I grabbed a ruler and measured them. They were a quarter inch off–every single last one of them, DUN DUN DUN!! I just totally flipped. I went beserk. I was just so furious that yet another thing had gone wrong. I called them up and freaked out to the person that answered customer service and they said the return department was closed for the day and I’d have to call back tomorrow. I totally gave them an earful. I eventually hung up with them and wrote this HUGE nasty email to their customer service about how the are false advertising and now my favor bags are ruined and I wanted every last penny back when I shipped them their “piece of crap bags” and on and on… not my finest moment. I even posted up on my myspace and facebook about them and some of my friends were like, “whoa! scary Heather just came out!”
The next day they called me but I couldn’t return the call. I was so embarrassed at my behavior that I just sold the bags on craigslist to get back some of my money.
A week later I got an apology letter and they refunded every penny to me including shipping without even me having to send back the bags. HOW NICE IS THAT! I was still so embarrassed so I just sent them an email saying thank you and I ordered a bunch more stuff from them.
I still don’t know why it was just some favor bags that sent me waaayyy over the edge but I haven’t flipped out since so lesson learned!

i’m very embarrassed about this! my fbil was thinking about having another baby, and there was a misunderstanding that they were starting to try right then, which would mean if they concieved right away she would be popping out the kid at our wedding. fbil is our best man and his daughter is our flower girl. plus, i did’n’t want my fi’s parents to have to pick between being at our wedding and the birth of their grandchild. i was so pissed, even though i knew it was horrible and i shouldn’t be telling someone when to have a child! my fi talked to him about it though and it turned out we didn’t hear the whole story, they wanted to started trying a few months later, so we’re safe, no babies will be born at our wedding!

The night before my wedding, mom wanted me to stop what I was doing (wedding stuff, running around like a chicken with no head) to teach her how to set up the Wii because she wanted to play. She stepped in front of me at some point and I hissed at her to “get out of my way”. Apparently she and my husband exchanged a look of “WTF” but she backed down, knowing I”m really only like that when I’m stressed. The last thing I wanted to do was set up a stupid game, anyways!
I’m pretty embarassed by it. It was pretty bitchy

My worst bridezilla moment was thankfully in private. It was during the afternoon before our rehearsal and rehearsal picnic. I had been running around all day getting last minute things ready, feeling stressed. When I came back to the house to get ready, I saw the people staying there had drank most of the punch that mom and I had made for the picnic, including using all of the ice cubes with cherries inside.
I was so furious I went up to my room and threw all my poor old stuffed animals from when I was a kid around the room, like I was a two year old having a tantrum or something. I eventually collapsed on the floor and sobbed, thinking about the loss of my poor cherry cubes to those jerks on the porch outside.
I’m blushing to remember that now, but at the time it was like I had just lost it and become a different person.
