Ohhh I wish I was talking about the movie, but instead I am just asking about the urge to feel like a princess on the wedding day. I am sitting here watching Bridezillas and the newest bride-to-be was talking to her event designer about crystals dripping from the flowers because she always wanted her wedding to be like a Princess wedding. I have never felt like I wanted the big, Princess-esque wedding. I hear this thrown around all the time on WE wedding shows (Platinum Weddings etc) but I’ve never been to a Princess-themed wedding (horse and carriage, crystals crystals crystals seem to be the main components for this theme). I’m not claiming that Princess weddings are bad or anything, I just wonder if I am a freak for not ever feeling a pang to have the fairytale wedding… Anyone else like me? Or anyone else HAVING a princess wedding? Everyones different, but the way weddings are portrayed on tv makes me wonder about whether my guests will be expecting this sort of wedding.

Well. . .i have never been the princessy type. I am very low key and so is my hubby. We were going to do a small intimate garden ceramony and then we decided that was even too "hype" for us so we eloped and went to town hall. . .LOL. And out of all married friends , i only have one friend who honestly had "princess" as her theme. . . but that was and is her personality. . . VERY girly-girl. So if your a freak then so am i and most of my friends ,lol

Honestly, I never wanted to feel like a princess on my wedding day. People kept saying "It’s your day to be a princess", but I never really got that. When I was dress shopping, the consultant kept trying to push me into a ballgown (which was so unflattering) because it was more "princess-y". I just didn’t get it. Sure, it was a very special day and I felt beautiful and happy, but I still felt like me. I’m pretty laid back, so I just wanted to feel like myself–maybe a little dressier than usual. I also never really pictured my wedding growing up, so maybe that’s part of it, too. Either way, it hink the important thing is just to have the kind of day YOU want, not what other people think you should have.

Nah, no princess stuff for this chica, my dress is empire waisted and my venue is a field and we’re having BBQ food! Some girls want the princess experience, I totally understand that but I think LOTS have completely other ideas for their wedding…check out Offbeat Brides to see what I mean 🙂

You are not alone. I am in the same boat. Bridezilla and Platinum Weddings only supply me with endless entertainment. Personally, I have nothing against those who like the "princess for a day" theme. It’s just not me either. But it DOES bother me when people say "it’s *your* day." WTF??? Does my Fiance count for anything?? urggh!

Nope, me too. Im not a princess in life so why would I want to be one on my wedding day? The way I see it, its one day in the rest of our lives. Yes it will be one of the most important to date, but when we have kids, THAT will be the most important. I’ve nothing against the girls that do want that, dont get me wrong, its just a matter of opinion. And like gvsusara above, why is it MY day? Why isnt it OUR day? That irks me

I’ve never wanted to be a princess either–the attention embarrasses me, honestly! We’re having a tiny wedding at a lakeside cottage and the only thing I want to be on display is our upcoming marriage. I think it’s sweet when girls have princess-weddings (if that’s what they want), but it’s definitely not for me.
