It finally happened. I never thought bridezilla was real. I always thought I’d have to see it to believe it. Well let me tell you what, I did see it, and it IS real.
I was having my first fitting today (YAY), with my sister, my mom, and two friends. We were sitting (well I was standing lol) and chatting while she pinned me up, and another bride stood up next to me to get fitted. I guess she must have asked her mom to go pick out a veil for her, because when her mom came around the corner carrying one the bride started shrieking, “I SAID A PLAIN VEIL, A PLAIN ONE, THAT ONE ISN’T PLAIN AT ALL! THIS IS MY WEDDING AND I WANT IT DONE MY WAY!”
I honestly have never seen anyone over the age of 6 behave this way in public. It was embarassing to watch!
Well anyway, just wanted to share my experience. I’m a little shell-shocked now. Anyone else have any bridezilla experiences?

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 😡

@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..

@egb: totally agree, especially given my own experiences with wedding planning so far

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?

Uggghhh people like that disgust me!!!

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