I finally had that moment where I walked right up to the edge of the deep canyon of Bridezilla Land. It all started back when my dear Fiance made the unilateral decision that I wasn’t allowed to actually see, in person, what he and the groomsmen would be wearing for their attire. Sure, I got to go online and pick out the colors that I wanted them to wear, but I can’t see it all put together on real-life people. So I was very specific with what I wanted: Groom in a black tux with ivory shirt, tie and vest; Groomsmen in black tux with Ivory shirt and vest, with a burnt orange tie OR black tux with an ivory shirt and burnt orange tie and vest.
That was about a month and a half ago that they went in and got their tuxes ordered. Fast forward to yesterday, I am a raging grump because I’ve been sick for the last 3 days and I have zero patience. And Fiance tells me that he has orange in his outfit. I seriously watched it play out in my head…..I suddenly start swelling and turning green with spikes erupting from my body as I rampage through the car yelling “What the HELL??? I SAID YOU WERE WEARING ALL IVORY!!!!!” Luckily, I didn’t immediately act on this impulse, I resisted the bridezilla opportunity and took a few deep breaths….Crisis averted. Also, Fiance turned out just to be confused….he got it right at the store, and got confused later.
Any one else had that moment where they saw themselves turning into a monster? Did you actually go all bridezilla on their a$$es? Or were you able to keep a lid on it? Let’s hear your out of body, crazy experiences!

I haven’t had a bridezilla moment, but I’m feeling your situation extremly familiar. Fiance decided that as he’s not allowed to see my dress, I’m not allowed to see what he’s wearing, also since he and his groomsmen are not groomed at all, he think’s it’ll be a waste of time to tell them what to wear and hat we should just leave it to them WTF!!!!

Kind of almost have had the same problem. I have an extremely formal wedding dress. AA Plat. Cinderella. And Fiance doesn’t want the guys to have boutonnieres, doesn’t want jackets or vests. And I was like WHOA WHOA WHOA! Something! Even if it’s a NICE blazer. I mean jeez!
Second bridezilla moment, he doesn’t realize WHY save the dates were needed. And why he needed to ask his family if memorial day weekend was okay. Well his cousin is graduating college. Normally i’d be like oh well. Tell them to take an hour out of their weekend. But this is a cousin who is close. And I flipped out on him, I almost had booked like 8 things… so we finally got that situated. Moved it back another week. And I was like, well did you call your grandmother? What about this and that? He wants to letterpress the save the dates. Well those take like 80238489327 weeks to do (not really but he’s really upset over them). So he had a “groom melt down” moment, and that kind of upset me that I upset him. So I had to let him realize, there are many more paper options. You can letterpress the invites, the programs, the thank you cards. This is just something we’ll have to print. It’s okay.

I’ve had a couple of moments, but honestly all of them were provoked.
About a week ago, I told Fiance his mother couldn’t come to the wedding, but that was more of a snap reaction to some of her BS than anything else…but if things don’t change, it may become a fact.
Last winter, when I was trying to finish my deposit and order my gown, I got an anonymous letter, telling me that the shop I had ordered from had been under all these investigations, that they never delivered dresses, that they claimed dresses had been handmade, but they were samples, covered in stains. Shortly after that, the store burned down. I was in a pet store with my Fiance when I found out, and I burst into tears in the fish aisle. We went home and both he and my mom said that I could just get a different dress.
I saw red.
I started screaming and crying even more hysterically, slamming doors, telling them that they didn’t *&$#ing understand (my mom got married in a nice, but, regular brown dress and only had a cake. No reception, no guests, nothing, and she doesn’t understand why I don’t want to do the same), telling them that if I couldn’t have that dress, there wouldn’t be a wedding, that I was going to look ugly…I just went nuts.
The store ended up having an awesome insurance policy, and set up temporary shop a few days later, and I picked up my dress, the one I wanted, two weeks ago. I’d like to think that that was the last time I will ever react like that.

Good for you for resisting!
I had one bridezilla moment while we were decorating the hall the day before our wedding. Our sweetheard table/the podium for speeches was placed in front of some glass doors (ugly glass doors). The venue had black curtains on poles that I wanted to put infront of the doors so you couldn’t see them in pictures. Resonable, no? Well the venue girl told me that was a fire hazard (there were 3 other exits in this hall, plus we weren’t blocking the doors at all) and we could put tape up GARBAGE BAGS if we wanted. I’m usually very softspoken, but I very sternly said “I am NOT doing that, that would look ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS”. I didn’t yell, but she knew I meant business cuz she left to go get the ok from someone higher up. Shockingly enough it was ok and there were no garbage bags on the doors.
