You know what? I hate the word Bridezilla. Being a bride is hard work! How can we expect one person to be all things to all people for (often) upwards of 10 months? And honestly, how are we supposed to maintain composure when guests email asking for two meals? Or call and ask for a plus one for their new girlfriend even though facebook says they’re single (I inquired about this, apparently they aren’t facebook official yet… since when is facebook more official than my wedding??)?
So. Let’s abolish Bridezilla. Planning a wedding is stressful, and guests are occasionally oblivious. But, that said… we all have our moments where we lose our good graces, and do or say things we would never do or say outside of engagement. So, in the name of solidarity, let’s share our less than perfect moments. I’ll go first.
You know you’re a bride when…. you kind of hope some more guests RSVP no so you can afford to buy more expensive designer shoes!

You know you’re a bride when…
You change spaghetti sauce brands just for the jar (the mason kind)
You call your friends and ask them to save all their glass jars for the next 9 months (so you can use them as candle holders on your wedding day)
The words hors d’ oeuvres, boudoir, répondez s’il vous plaît, etc. have become part of your regular lexicon

…you let your hair grow to startling lengths and threaten your hairdresser if he so much as looks menacingly at your split ends

You get a cut and your first thought is, “Aagh, this better not scar! I’m getting married in ____ months!”
You know how many people can fit at 48″, 60″ and 72″ tables, and you know the respective tablecloth diameters for each.
You understand a post entitled, “WTF! My Maid/Matron of Honor is M.I.A.!” Also, you know what an Maid/Matron of Honor, Bridesmaid or Best Man, Fiance, Groomsmen, Future Sister-In-Law, Future Mother-In-Law, Future Father-In-Law, Future In-Laws, Future Brother-In-Law, MOB, and MOG are.
You have cupboards, closets, even rooms overflowing with–no, not shoes or clothes!–wedding decor.

You know when you’re a bride when:
You accidentally flash an entire beach full of people because your bathing suit slipped too low when you were trying to erase tan lines!
You strain your back trying to move all of your stacks of bridal magazines.
You go to Home Depot to pick out paint chips, not to paint your living room, but to work with color schemes.

@azure6700:LOL – I just did that the other day (with a scratch on my back!) I thought – this better be all better by the wedding day!!

You know you are a bride when..
You wear a hideous bathing suit just to make sure you have no strap tan lines
You get are afraid to even get your hair trimmed because they might botch the job
You spend more time on wedding sites and researching wedding things than anything else
You are the go to person for every question and decision to be made

you freak out over a broken nail and all you can think is ‘my nails better grow fast to make up for that damage, I don’t have time for this!’
