Heh. When I was engaged previously, my mom said she saw some ‘Zilla coming out of me – which is possible, but I’d argue it was mostly directed at her insistence that she get to wear a black prom gown instead of a tasteful, elegant dress. Thankfully when I get married for real she’s gonna be so concerned about impressing my SO’s family that she’ll probs go with whatever I say for her to wear xD

I think I might get a bit crazy, but I’m going to try not to. My big request is going to be a coordinator since I am terrible with organizing things and can’t DIY to save my LIFE. I just… can’t. with seating arrangements and decorations, etc. Cake tastings? You betcha. Dress fittings? Sign me up!

@badabing88:  BAH HA HA HA! That’s effin’ hilarious!

I think I have Bridezilla potential, which is why I would just prefer to elope. Since that’s not an option now, I am hoping to channel my inner calmness and just have fun ๐Ÿ™‚

No. Turns out I don’t really care about the small details about weddings like decor.

But I am kind of a “Me-Zilla,” all the time, (I have an opinion on nearly everything and I’m only too happy to share it). So I guess it more than balances out ๐Ÿ™‚

@badabing88:  If I was having a large wedding then probably. I am your Type A control freak.

However… since I know I can’t control everything (and issues have already crept up), and since I never really wanted a big wedding anyway, we’re opting to elope. Much easier that way.

During my planning process I had an amazing wedding planner and never once did I have to become a zilla. That being said I could easily see opportunities if I didn’t have her to rely on to fix issues that came about, and there were many.

I absolutely hate the phrase bridezilla. I often feel that brides that refuse to accept subpar quality and service are often lumped into feeling they are bridezillas. During a make up trial the artist was over the top insulting, rude and unprofessional. Her work was absolute crap and she made up a ton of excuses. Instead of sticking up for myself I feared I would come across as a bridezilla and sat back and took most of it. My Maid/Matron of Honor had to step in and eventually we left without booking her. I think there is a vast difference between going on a rampage and waving around demands and those brides that do care about details and want things perfect.

@badabing88:  Oh yeah, I am definitely relieved. I love living weddings vicariously, but my own? Hell no. Luckily my SO went through it once before so he isn’t exactly eager to repeat the experience lol.

Yes. Yes I do. I’m definitely a bit of a bridezilla in some areas but not in others. So far, the most ridiculous thing that’s brought out my inner ‘zilla (but I only let my mom and FH know about it!) was one of my bridesmaids and, just being totally honest here, her hair. My hair has been all sorts of crazy colors, but for my wedding I envisioned my natural dark brown. It’s completely coincidental that ALL of my ‘maids happen to have dark hair. I dd NOT choose them based on this. My sister is a blonde but she just recently went dark. But I have one Bridesmaid or Best Man who (after I asked her to be in the wedding) chose to die her hair red. Not red found in nature red. FIRE ENGINE CRAYON RED. And then SHAVE CHEETAH PRINT INTO THE SIDE OF HER HEAD. I really nearly lost sleep thinking about how ridiculous my pictures would look with brunette, brunette, brunette, RED CHEETAH, brunette, brunette, brunette. She has since died her hair and the cheetah is growing out… I’m not proud to admit that I actually care about what their hair looks like, but at least I’m honest. And I can freely admit that I am a bit of a bridezilla.

 

P.S. Yes, I will completely lose my shit if someone shows up wearing white to my wedding. Heads will roll.

No bridezilla here but I do enjoy the threads of the MANY obvious bridezillas on here. I think they help keep me on earth with my expectations and planning.
