wow, that’s insane! my bff in high school used to do this when shopping with her mom. It was really embarrassing when I came along. One time on vacation (soph. year), she saw a bathing suit she liked and tried it on. It was too big, but she wanted it anyway. Her mom told her to go change and put it back on the shelf, and she just LOST IT. Threw herself on the floor of the fitting room crying and sobbing screaming “she’s such a bitch!!” and people in there store were starting to crowd around the dressing room. It was awful, and I felt embarrassed for them both.

Luckily, I’ve been firm with my mom and she knows once I say “I feel really strongly about this, and I’m adamant about doing it this way” (verbatim) she backs off.

I just can’t see any reason for causing a scene like that. Even if your mom refuses to bring you the kind of veil you want, then ask someone else…you’re in a bridal store, I’m sure there’s a ton of commission hungry sales people walking around she waiting to be asked to get you something lol

Wow that’s terrible O.o Poor mum. I think I had a bridezilla moment on the morning of the wedding, when we were all getting ready and my veil was left at home. I called my mom and asked her to bring it by so we could do our first look (we were cutting it close on time). Mum started yelling about how she didn’t want to leave yet and seeing each other before the ceremony was stupid so I started yelling back at how I needed it; even though I didn’t start it I’m sure everyone in the room thought I was a huge bridezilla. I also almost started crying when everyone left me in the room alone to go do pictures (my Mother-In-Law was trying to sabotage us having a first look). I was all alone for about fifteen minutes and quite depressed when my little SIL came in and asked “They all left you in here alone?” She could tell I was on the verge of tears even though I tried to hide it and came and sat on my lap (in my dress, lol it would have made a cute picture if photog was there) and said they were jerks and tried to cheer me up. It worked, she was so sweet.

^ that’s such a cute story (not the Mother-In-Law part, but the SIL – bet that would have been an awesome candid pic!)

Wow. If I was around someone acting like that, I would probably make a face and say “Yikes. What a hot mess.”

@mandi.pitt: When I read this, that’s exactly what came to mind, a mom giving her what she thinks looks best, not what she asked for.

@mandi.pitt: Totally possible. There’s always more going on than we know, but at the same time–you should always take that into account with your behavior. Joe on the street won’t know you’ve been egged on, he’ll just know you’re super bitch. :/
