Found this and wanted to share with all the lovely bees:
Bridezillas are made, not born. It’s supposed to be the happiest time of your life – and you want it to be – yet planning a wedding is like working a second job. You have to find the time to tend to a multitude of details as part of an already busy schedule while managing vendors, family anxieties and demands, your groom, your emotions and an array of tricky wedding dynamics. True, some brides are downright demanding but most are nice people, sucked into the vortex of wedding planning stress, and overwhelmed by the stress, pressure and expectations of those around her.
— can I get an AMEN!

I posted this because as we were stuffing and addressing our invitations last night I was a total anal B* getting so frustrated with my Fiance for putting the stamps on crooked. I was in tears.
Ok, it’s important to me that they don’t look like a child did them (which they were starting to – my lord it was painful to watch) but really…they’re just stamps. I guess I should start practicing for the wedding day and I have to let.it.all.go… 🙂

I totally agree with this!
I was “mostly” a calm bride throughout the wedding planning. But one point, I found myself screaming at my then Fiance about the guest list! I had asked his mom multiple times for their final count, and asked them multiple times for addresses, and NOTHING. Finally, when I was ready to mail the invitations, I gave those without addresses to Darling Husband to give to his mother to mail and she said she’d really rather that I addressed them myself, so just give her a week to get the addresses. I just about started yelling, so I had to take myself to church. At 9:30 at night. To avoid saying things to my mother in law that I could not take back. lol. That is SOOOO not like me.

AMEN SISTER!!!! I always say that I’m going to work my part tome job at night the one where I pay people not the aother way around. I likened it to one of those work from home scams where you send money off to get a kit to get started.
All these damn decisions to make!!!!Egads!!!

I totally agree with this!! All my Fiance and my planning has been pretty chill. But the most stressful stuff has been dealing with our families. They have been pushing me to the brink of having a meltdown!

I agree with this totally. Basically we are babysitters. Im a control freak who wants everything done my way to a tee. By no means am i mean about it but if I am paying YOU…then you will do it my way. Im babysitting these vendors for free.

Amen!!!!!!!!!! I was chatting with my Maid/Matron of Honor over the weekend and I told her that I’ve been a biatch lately and I just don’t know why because I’m a nice person… and she said.. well.. it’s called planning a wedding and also told me she knows when she needs to back up because I’ve been bitchy 🙁
I want this to be over and done with!!!
