While I would not want to admit it I am sure that sometimes I can get a bit worked up. I however am a very intense person so whatever I am planning wedding or not I need to keep myself in check.

Well, I have a long way to go. But I will say that Future Mother-In-Law and I went head to head a few weeks ago on the church/no church issue. It’s so not an issue to R and I (we will NOT get married in a church) but it really upsets her. So she kept saying, “but you met at (church name) you have to get married there!” and after about ten minutes of responding reasonably, I snapped “and we hated it there!” 

Whoops. Damn temper.

Um. Yes.  I will admit I have had a bridezilla moment.  Triggered by a crazy Future Mother-In-Law moment.

But nothing beats the bride whose wedding I’m in..who had a crying fit in the middle of our trial for bridesmaid dresses, screaming at her mother because she was mad that her sister didn’t want a new dress (even though she didn’t have to pay for it because MOM said she would).  I was totally embarassed and actually contemplated pulling out at a Bridesmaid or Best Man because I didn’t know if she would be like this the whole process.

my wedding is not for 2 years but I know Mother-In-Law and I are going head to head.  She thinks (and has said outloud) that this is HER WEDDING.  So yeah, I’m typical pretty sweet but she brings out the terror in me.

My bridezilla moments are totally triggered by stress.  Like this last week for example…I am in court all day thursday, have a wicked bad day at work on friday, find out I have to show the house on saturday evening (which meant I would clean and work all darn day on saturday when I’d reallly like just a day off) and it put me over the edge last night.

I actually said I wanted to be alone.  Maybe it’s not totally bridezilla, but sometimes I just want relaxation.

Oh and the requisite, “and could you please find the time to send in the information to the church?” did fly outta my mouth too.

I haven’t had any bridezilla moments with family or friends. I am extremely fortunate on that front as most mind their own bee’s wax. People have had random opinions and ideas that they have shared but nobody has attempted to argue things with me.

I have had one bridezilla moment with the engagement ring jeweller though. We had to take my ring in to be re-sized and to have a minor repair made shortly after we got engaged which should have taken no more than 1 week. After waiting 5 weeks for the ring with no calls from the jeweller either proactively to give us an update or reactively to return any of our calls. I called the store and let them have it insisting that they call return my fiance’s call immediately and advise where my ring was and what was going on. I am pretty calm and laid back so I did remain courteous, I was just rather forceful and insistent.

The saga didn’t end there though, after 6 weeks, we finally got the ring back only to find out that it had never been re-sized. And again after 8 weeks to learn that it had been sized too big. Fortunately it fits well enough to wear and we have moved on to a new jeweller to work.

So that is my only bridezilla moment and my justification for it! 🙂

I am normally a very softspoken person. I do too much to make others happy. I have had 2 bridezilla moments.


1. My older sister is totally different then I am. She is also getting married this spring/summer, yet has no date, no venue, nothing. It is her second marriage, but she has no plans to plan. She just is going to one day say hey I am getting married today and we will have to show up. She has been getting on my case a lot about my “dream” wedding and pretty much saying my requests are out of reach or ridiculous. Keep in mind this is stuff like have your hair done nicely or wear a nice pair of shoes with the dress. She was even mad about having to get a dress and I even let them all pick out their own dresses. I ended up telling her in the middle of the bridal shop she does not have to be in the wedding and I was just being nice and asking her. We ended up apologizing after a very quiet dinner. She gets that we are totally different and I get that too, buuuut she gets now that she doesn’t need to insert her opinion into every thing I do for my wedding.


2. Bridal shop spaz out about bridesmaids dresses. They shipped one of my girls drseses to an address they no longer lived at even though she called twice to update it and make sure it was right. Lucky for her she happened to be driving past her old place to get a bill and noticed the box sitting outside. When I told the bridal shop they said “oh that sucks, good thing she went there”. I was irrate. That was the last thing I could have taken from that shop, there were ALOT of mess ups.

other then that I have been quite pleasant 🙂

The end 🙂
