Haha, Bridezilla’s is one of my guilty pleasures along with coffee and cigarettes. I am still a ways out from my wedding and I would like to think that I am a well behaved bride-to-be, but sometimes I have to put my thoughts in check. Example I love my Maid/Matron of Honor she is my best friend in the world!! But she changes her hair these weird colors all the time, and I have been really worried that she will have pink hair at my wedding (FIs family are really traditional) so for Christmas I took her to my kick ass hair stylist and gave her a hair make-over. When we left, I then asked her if she would keep her hair normal for the year before the wedding so we don’t have to deal with any crazy hair that day. She said yes and laughed at me, but afterwards I felt like I am being out of line.

I had one bridezilla moment.  The bridesmaid dresses.  Wedding is on NYE, Maid/Matron of Honor is unfortunately unemployed, so I asked her to wear a long black dress that she already has that we both love.  My STB stepdaughter is in college.  She didnt want to wear black or a long dress.  Mind you – the dress she wore to my FI’s 40th birthday party was so short you could see her undies when she sat down.  Every man in the room was looking and just about every woman commmented to me about it, so she doesnt have a good track record for appropriate attire.  She is kind of a bridesmaid – but really walking her dad down the aisle, so of course my Fiance wanted to let her pick her own dress.  I put my foot down.  I told him I was having a bridezilla moment and this was a nonnegotiable item.  END OF DISCUSSION.  He basically told her that was what she needed to find – and if she couldnt do that one thing, I was going to pick her dress for her too.  In the end, I didnt pick the dress – and didnt care – it just had to be long and black.  And it is.

I’m really not trying to be one, but I have a type A personality and a painc disorder/OCD about things being in order….so I might be one.

I had a Not Wedding Related bridezilla moment at home last weekend. I was a little tipsy and Mr. Tattoo suggested we do this instead of that and I had a fit. I was like, “I don’t WANT to do that! I WANT this!” ha ha ha ha. And he goes, “Yeah…you’re going to be a bridezilla.”

I love that show so I’m always making a conscious effort NOT to go bridezilla. So far I’ve been good.  It helps that I’m having a small wedding, I’ve got awesome vendors and only one attendant so things don’t get all crazy. 

I think the only things I ever got even remotely heated about were/are:

groomsmen attire: no, I’m sorry but you CANNOT wear a zoot suit to our wedding. Or baby blue.  Or sneakers.  (I suspect these suggestions were made in an attempt to awaken my sleeping bridezilla…)

chairs: I wanted chilvari chairs pretty bad.  I ended up giving in though, because it really WOULD be kind of a wasted expense when the venue has perfectly fine brown chairs (I previously thought they only had white.)

vendor contact: If a vendor gets flaky on me, I don’t deal with them.  There’s just too many out there to risk the added stress of potentially having to chase them down in the weeks immediately preceding the wedding.  Not happening.  No email back within 72 hours, no contract signed. 

I’ve been way chill with everything else, though, and haven’t raised my voice at anyone (in a serious way, that is) over anything.

I was super good until the rehearsal.  I went total ape shit and still to this day can’t figure out why.  Thank god i had a good track record and everyone forgave me. But i still feel the need to apologize for that moment.

I’m usually laid-back, but at some point I’ll probably freak out on a certain family member who’s been incredibly difficult throughout this whole process. I’m not sure if that’s family issues or a Bridezilla moment, but it will probably end up looking like the latter.

I should probably start doing yoga and meditating before it gets to that point, lol, but I guess we’ll see…
