OMG, I hate to admit mine….

I am an absolute BRIDEZILLA about not have unruly tweens at my reception. It really sucks when I have to put my foot down with the Fiance and tell him/not ask him about excluding the monsters.

I also have a problem with dress codes. WE are putting everything we have into the expense of this wedding and reception. At least take your a** to Kohl’s and find a pair of slacks with a polo or button-down shirt. I don’t think shorts, mandels and your Hanes t-shirt are wedding appropriate attire.

Last…I gave you a list of items we still need to purchase. Please do not tell me you made the rounds at your local Dollar Store and found “bird cages” to put on my tables for centerpieces. Where on the list of votives, candles and flower petals did you see “bird cages”?

Okay, I think I got it out.

Nothing, really. I’m laid-back about everything…I mean, I want things to look nice but in the end, all that matters is that we’re married. ๐Ÿ™‚ I wasn’t thrilled that his stepmom added close to 30 people to our guest list for our original reception (which is now just a big almost-anniversary party next year since we’re marrying in the courthouse this year) but I realized I couldn’t control it and shouldn’t freak out about it.

I have to agree with @da3lyn on her first gripe!  I’m the same way.  I made Fiance have a talk with both of his brother’s about the behavior of their tween children at our reception.  Fiance did good though…he pretty much told them that if they are misbehaving and running around like monkies, then we are kindly going to have the shuttle bus take them back to the hotel.

Another one of mine is the music.  I’m talking, I’m not even allowing people to make requests during the reception even though our DJ has the ‘no play’ list.  The only people allowed to make requests are our parents and us.  But on our RSVP cards, we had a place for ‘Song Request #1′ and Song Request #2’ and most people put songs.  So we went through those and several will be played throughout the night with the DJ annoucing who made the request.

I was laid back about everything!  Many people commented that on my wedding day I was so relaxed!  I pretty much planned the entire wedding (with DH!) but just went with everything that vendors or family, friends, guests brought up.  I do by no means that I was a push over, no way.  I just am a easy going person and wasn’t going to stress about MIL’s dress or heel height or appetizers or linen color. 

The only thing I ended up having to be pushy about was our hotel block.  It wasn’t getting filled and we were going to be charged so I had to personally ask close family to change their resevations so we wouldn’t be charged thousands of dollars.  Which in the end was partly my fault for agreeing to such a poor hotel contract.  They tripled the price the night 3 days before since they were almost full and non of my guests wanted to pay that.

it still bugs me thought that I found the perfect candy for our candy bar afterwards.  every time I see it at the store it anoyes me. ๐Ÿ™

@Statutory Grape: No offense, but I don’t think that was the point of this post at all. A lot of girls have bridezilla moments and this was a thread to “admit” to them and laugh about it.

 

Now I already have a list of things I’m bridezilla about and I’m still a year out, lol. The biggest thing is my candy bar though. I know I could buy candy at costco for cheap but I want all purple and red candy (our colors) and I don’t care how much it costs!

 

I feel better now that I got that off my chest…hahaha

We usually have a member of the family do wedding pictures (he did my aunt’s wedding in the 80s and my sister’s wedding a few years ago). I refused to have him do mine. He does a great job, but it’s not the modern photojournalist style that I love. I just couldn’t bear the thought of not having that at my wedding.

I might have thrown a few very slight (oops :)) temper tantrums about it to my very gracious mom. She worked things out with dad and now we’re having a great modern photographer! ๐Ÿ™‚

@MandaMack: I did admit that I freaked a bit about the guest list, but then also said I let go of it, so it technically still fits. ;P

On that note, I did go through a period where I was stressing about photography–FH wanted his mom to be the only shooter and I put my little foot down and said no. Not sure if that qualifies as Bridezilla behavior, but we had a bit of an argument over it.

I shouldn’t admit this……..but I don’t want FI brother as a groomsmen.  He is going to be 15 and the other “youngest” bridesmaid is his 22 year old sister.  (FI is 26) My other 2 bridesmaids are 29 and 33.  I don’t find it right to have one of them walk down the aisle or take pictures with a 15 year old, and I won’t make his sister walk down with him……….I know I may hear some negative response to this and I can understand it is very “bridezilla” of me……….  (however, we would like to extend the invitation to him to help in other areas, ie buy him a flip video camera and have him interview guests as he loves to talk!)

@ChelseaLiz8: At our normal “family” lunch on Sunday…my FI’s tween cousin came up to me and literally punched me in the ribs. She is so lucky that I didn’t lose it and smack her back. His cousins are the spawn of satan and I can’t imagine what disasters they may cause at the wedding with their nonsense. Hence, they are not invited!!!

@ChelseaLiz8: Good reasoning! I just kept showing my mom some gorgeous photography from our area and she finally saw my point :).

 

@da3lyn: Umm…holy cow?! What the heck did her parents say?
