    I kind of feel like I’m the anti-bridezilla to a fault. I’m so worried about inconveniencing people I feel like I’m probably going to end up compromising too much. I just really hate the thought of putting anyone out for MY day.

    Well I’d like to think I’m not however, my recent shoe mishap at Norstrom was just compared to Bridezillas. Whatever. Doesn’t bother me. I don’t think it was a bridezilla moment. But hey to each his or her own.

    I haven’t had one yet and have actually been told by everyone – my family, Future Mother-In-Law, Fiance – that I am like wonderful about everything and totally not psycho-bridey. I think people just assume now because of the show that all brides are total psycho biotches. Us “normals” need to represent. I don’t doubt that at some point during the process I’ll have a freakout, but I’m not gonna stomp around like a 5 year old or throw centerpieces or smash cake. Not my style.

    My sister has a way of pulling out the B word when she doesn’t like a decision I make (like telling her that she couldn’t have a train on her bridesmaid’s dress).  I don’t think I have been one, though I have thought about how I could freak out in my mind!  There hasn’t been any cake throwing, plate smashing, or WWIII going on in the Library wedding land!

    I had ONE, the night before the wedding. I was running around, talking aloud about my list, rounding up items and my mom stepped in front of me to get my attention and started asking me to hook up the Wii for her. After telling her multiple times I wasn’t going to do it, i was too busy, not right now, etc, i finally said, “just get out of my way”. She took it goodnaturedly (obviously i was in the middle of putting together a list) and my head was in the clouds. But, on top of it all, I was incredibly annoyed by the fact that she invited all these people to stay at MY house the night before my wedding and all they kept doing was bug me for this, that, or the other, but not offering to help with the wedding. My aunt actually came over, got in my way again, and told me to start being nice and tried to be all cute about it. It was really annoying and just, for lack of bvetter words, not the right time!

    But yeah, it’s not something I’d EVER say to anybody else on a regular day and was really bitchy.

    I’ve gotten very relaxed about a lot of things because my perspective has changed. Like I used to think that the day was about me and it had to be my way and perfect, but then I took a step back and realized that the second we decided to have a big wedding it became about the guests, not us. It’s our wedding day, but it’s about making guests happy and sharing the day with them.

    So I used to get upset about stuff like the fact that we have to have ALL the kids in the church during our ceremony, but now I’m kind of like “whatever”. Oh, but I definitely did already tell my MOH’s not to let any of the bridesmaids make me wear a shirt or something on my bachelorett party (I’m fine with a tiara) b/c I want to wear my own outfit and look cute!

    I had one…and I laugh about it with my girls now. We were taking our photos in my neighbor’s beautiful yard while family and other out of town guests mingled in my parents’ yard with appetiezers and stuff. I asked everyone if they minded staying in the neighbor’s yard until I told them were done instead of trying to find everyone and delaying photos, I’d appreciate it. Apparently, my Aunt told 2 of my bridesmaids that they were done and could go get some food. Well, we weren’t done, and we needed a shot of the bridal party. Since my 2 bridesmaids weren’t in the yard, I was really annoyed. I just screamed out, “S & D…get your *sses up here…NOW!” Haha…my one freakout moment. They were both like, “uh oh!!!” Otherwise, my mom did the whole momzilla thing enough for everyone all day.

    My friends still tease me about it and I crack up. I’ve since obviously apologized, and they’re very good natured about it thank goodness. I was just tired of pictures and wanted to get them overwith!

    I really dislike when brides become bridezilla. Whats the point of stressing out and being a control freak, a wedding should be enjoyable. I am kind of like corgi, im so concerned about making everyone happy. I want my bridesmaids all to love their dresses, and its turned into a marathon dress shopping experience.

    I used to work for a catering company in college. I cant tell you how many brides I saw that were so stressed on their wedding day that they didnt even enjoy it. Brides need to learn to relax and enjoy!

    I definitely dislike the bridezillas too, but sometimes, you just get so stressed that you snap. You don’t mean it, but it happens. And I understand when that happens to brides. You just have so many people in your face, stressing you out that you just want to yell. Of course, it doesn’t mean you can be a complete b*tch the entire time, but I understand a minor freak out.

    I had regular freak outs in college about my grades and studying and getting everything done on time. The wedding was NOTHING compared to that kind of stress.

    But truly, a person can only take so much before they DO blow it. Whether it’s grades or work or life…whatever it is. A friend of mine had a hysterical freak out due to her job a couple weeks ago. It happens!

    For many, a wedding is the epitome of stress, particularly if there are life events culminating on top of it.

    And, I think there’s a BIG difference between stressing out and having a snap and doing the “bridezilla’ thing like throwing cake, throwing a tantrum, hitting someone, or doing any of the other ridiculously immature (yet funny!) things they do on the show.

    I haven’t had any bridezilla moments yet but I feel them coming on the closer we get to the wedding. Such as being told that guests that I felt forced to invite (whom I didn’t want to invite originally but felt I had too) are now trying to bring along their own additional guests (who I totally don’t know!! and totally don’t want to invite!!). Or not knowing when my dress will be ready (the wedding is in two weeks) since my dressmaker has not been getting back to me and I will have to drive 5 hours to go pick it up. There are a few other things stressing me out,  but those are the two biggies. I am trying to keep my cool and be kind and considerate of everyone’s feelings, but I am feeling a bit stressed…especially about the uninvited guests issue since my venue has a maximum cutoff number and I will surpass that number if these people come. Gah! Help!

    I have regular freak-outs but not about control–more like, “Oh man, is this EVER going to get done?” Haha.

    One of my friends got married recently, and she was a B-zilla (and I really hate that word). She got mad at her venue when they wouldn’t customize her entire menu (she told them to Google recipes she was thinking up in her head, and then only wanted to pay like $25 per person). Her venue did an amazing job with her wedding (I worked with the coordinator there – so nice!) and she thought they were out to get her. So weird!
