Haha I haven’t but I would’ve probably been incredibly passive aggressive and said something to the people I was with in my Loudest voice “Aren’t y’all glad that I’m not a bridezilla like that witch over there?” lol. I can NOT stand to see grown women treat people like servants.

Wow. In public?? I can get a little witchy with my nearest and dearest when I’m feeling crabby… But never in public… Are you sure there weren’t cameras around? 😉

When I was getting fitted for my bridal gown there was another bride doing the same. She was freaking out because she forgot to bring her crinoline and REFUSED to use the one the store had on hand because everyone had used it. Her mom had to buy her a new one for $150 bucks.

Her poor groom! Not to mention her Mom. I can’t imagine a person like that can be very happy, or fun to be around. I have told my guy if I ever go into bratty bridezilla mode he has my person to kick my ass. LOL. I think I am the exact opposite, I am the bride who won’t stand up for herself and and it’s hard for me to demand anything. I need to remind myself all the time that I have to actually ask for what I want, or I won’t get it.

Maybe she and her Mom had an earlier argument over veils? i.e. the girl wanted a plain one, the mom wanted a bling-y one, so the mom brought her one just to spite her?

I feel the bridezilla coming up in me sometimes, and I’m like 😡

lol

@SandyThePoet: Me too! I get so frustrated when people bulldoze over me. “oh, you want mason jars…… i wouldn’t do those…. if i were you.” “oh, you want to use blue in the bridesmaids dresses? That’s nice, but how about this lovely apple color?” ugh… the bridezilla usually comes out when I’m at home later stewing over people’s comments, lol

First thing that came to my mind reading this was that this bride’s mother might never listen to what she wants… I mean, it’s not ok to do a scene, but it can become stressful when the person who is there to help you is only bringing things they like even though they know you don’t like it…

I had that “it’s my wedding so it’s going to go this way” talk with my mother when she would ask why we were doing a Destination Wedding and then for each reason I gave her, she would give me a way to go around it to have the wedding here. We’re doing the Destination Wedding because that’s what we want!

So yeah; without knowing the back story, I wouldn’t be so quick at giving her the Bridezilla crown..

I always, always hated bridezillas and swore to myself I would never be like this.  But 10 months into the wedding planning, I must admit, I have had moments where it was really hard not to boil over and scream “I don’t CARE what YOU think a wedding SHOULD be like! And stop pretending like the world will end if I do things the way I want them to be!!!!”

Just out of curiosity, what did the veil look like that mom had picked out?

@egb:

even so, I don’t ever personally think public ‘scenes’ are necessary or justified. though I do agree that backstory might explain a little.

 

OP:

I would be in shock/super embarrassed just by proximity. Thankfully I have not yet had the pleasure of witnessing such outbursts.

lol I’ve seen some good ones, but in my experience the mothers and bridal party are the worst. Sorry. I’ve had to pull a bride into the dressing room and tell her it’s her day, it’s about what she wants, and if she wants this style of dress/veil/whatever then that’s what we’ll do. I mean this girl was on the verge of tears because they were just down right mean and nobody would agree on anything.

However, I don’t condone scenes.
