Miss Coffee loves two shows “Say Yes to the Dress” and “Bridezilla”. For over a year now, I’ve sat next to her and watched these shows to the best of my ability. What do I mean when saying “to the best of my ability”???
Answer… I’m a guy!
I won’t lie ladies; whenever Bridezilla comes on, I begin to sweat! My heart starts racing and my left eye begins to twitch. Miss Coffee loves to make fun of me when watching this train wreck of a show, “my goodness honey” she says “this stuff will never happen to us… relax”!
Relax, relax, relax??? I can’t relax when brides are punching siblings in the face! Last night, Miss Coffee and I watched an episode where the groom-to be said something that has been imprinted on my brain! “No matter what you do, or who she is… every woman becomes a bridezilla the week of her wedding”!!!
WHAT!?!?! No, no, no… That can’t be true?!?!?
Two months ago, after watching a Bridezilla episode I turned to Miss Coffee and asked “Listen babe, you have to be completely honest with me… what are my chances you will become one of these women”? Miss Coffee, the love of my life, the women I want to spend the rest of my life with, turned to me and said… “You really have to ask me that question, babe you know I wouldn’t do half the things these women are doing”.
At first, her answer calmed my nerves…. but that only lasted 2 seconds!
“WAIT A MINUTE, YOU SAID HALF” I shouted “OH GOD… YOU SAID HALF”
“What” she said walking into the other room. I proceeded to follow Miss Coffee into the kitchen, “you just said you wouldn’t do half of the things those women do… what about the other half babe…. WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER HALF”???
This conversation last for about 20 minutes and was primarily me asking key questions. These questions went across the board; giving scenarios that included but was not limited to, fires, missing bridesmaids, zombies, wrong flowers, wrong flavored cake, and people calling 3 days before the weddings saying they can’t make it”.
Half way through; I realized there was only one reason I was going on and on about all of this, a realization that was both incredible and shocking: I WAS WORRIED ABOUT THESE THINGS… NOT MISS COFFEE! It was at the point Miss Coffee asked the following question, “Let’s say you’re driving to the ceremony and one of your groomsmen is so drunk, walking in straight line, let alone standing is out of the question. Would you be upset”?
I sat at our kitchen table pondering the question, looked over at our cat (Mr. Oliver) who in turn was staring at me in a way that basically said “sorree broz, shes gotz u on this 1”! I looked back at Miss Coffee and said “yes! I would be pretty pissed off”.
“Would you get passed it” she said. “Of course I would” I replied “it’s our wedding day”. Miss Coffee placed her hand onto mine, looked me in the eyes and said “me too”.
I love this woman! The groom on last nights episode is correct “no matter what you do, or who she is… every woman becomes a bridezilla the week of her wedding”. However, the statement should be worded more like this:
“The week of your wedding is a very stressful time; it’s common for both bride and groom to become on edge or even upset when something (that took over a year to plan) goes wrong or even potentially wrong. However, the true strength of the happy couple is displayed in how they overcome the small or even large obstacles that come their way”.
I would never picture Miss Coffee as becoming Bridezilla; not at the level the wonderful women on that show are at. However, I would totally understand losing your cool, expressing your frustration or concern about something… or even grabbing an axe when a zombie try’s to jump on the dance floor.
