I am happy to say I have only had ONE Bridezilla moment so far, and that was when we first started planning. I told my mom that we only wanted like 30 people (close family and THAT’S IT). She started complaining that SHE wanted to invite HER friends. I explained not even my friends were going to be there– CLOSE FAMILY. She didn’t like that, I didn’t like the picture in my head of the hundreds of people I could see being invited and I was mad!

*&)%@  RAGEFACE!!! %#@&)%#

We got in a big fight about whose wedding this really is, and I told her that she gave me money without conditions (I made that a BIG point because I wanted my vision and not hers, although I was still respectful that she gave us the money for the wedding), so I really didn’t want people I didn’t like there or didn’t know.

ANYWAYS,

I went on the Bee and wrote a post and we ended up compromising so she could bring 4 couples. As it stands now she has wormed her way into having me visit with a bunch of her old friends that I haven’t seen in a bit and convinced me she needs to invite 10 couples. *sigh* Still love her, even if that’s 30% of the wedding 😉

But from every bridezilla moment there has to be a learning experience, and mine would be that my mom told me (on a completely seperate occassion as we reminiced about when this wedding “could not be more than 30, Won’t happen.” that she had to invite these 20 people because she just loves me so much and is so proud of me she wants to show me off to all her friends.

 

Awww 🙂

A friend got engaged shortly after agreeing to be the Bridezilla’s Bridesmaid or Best Man.  Bridezilla told my friend not to wear her engagement ring to her shower or bachelorette party because it was considerably bigger than Bridezilla’s ring.

LOL I am serious.  She told Bridezilla (in not so many words) to pound sand.

I was catering and the planner (who I know and was very embarrassed) came up to me while I was doing place settings and asked me if I could not wear my ring.  Apparently the bride had seen it in the 10 seconds I had spent in her presence, lugging a crate of silverware past her, and was upset that the staff had a larger ring than hers.  I asked the planner if she would be appeased by informing her that it was not a diamond but apparently she was throwing a massive fit about it.  I rolled my eyes and said that my chain was in my car and that I would put it on there when I got dressed for the event but that I did not have anywhere safe to stow it until then.  She glared at me the entire event, which was awkward as I was the assigned server for the couple.  Then we didn’t get a tip.  🙁

I had to be bridesmaid for my cousin’s wife. She would bark out orders to us like a drill sergeant.  Snapping her fingers and whistling at us to get her attention.  It was disgusting. 

When we were in the bridal suite before walking into the reception my cousin’s 4 year old daughter (also the flower girl) was in awe of the bride as most little girls usually are.  It’s barbie come to life!  She asked the bride if she could touch her dress and the bride said, “don’t you dare!!!” and the flower girl started crying.

My brother was a groomsman.  When it was time for us to line up and get ready to walk in, my brother was quickly trying to finish his beer so it wouldn’t go to waste.  She saw him with it and said, “UMMMM!  I KNOW YOU’RE NOT WALKING INTO MY RECEPTION WITH A BEER IN YOUR HAND!”  My brother responded, “Chill out bridezilla, I think maybe you could use one.”

Fast forward a month later when my other cousin (Bride’s brother in law) got married.  They apparently had the same limo service.  My brother and I dipped out of the church after the ceremony when pictures were being taken to get a head start home to get ready for the reception. (we declined to be in this bridal party)  We saw that a red runner was set up from the church entrance leading out to the limo with a small table and two champagne glasses and a cheap bottle of champagne awaiting the newlyweds to make their exit.

Former bridezilla comes out of the church and sees the set up for her new BIL and SIL and goes into a fit of rage, “I DIDN’T GET A RED CARPET!!! I DIDN’T GET  CHAMPAGNE!!! I PAID THE SAME PRICE!!! I WANT A REFUND!!! WAIT UNTIL YOUR BOSS HEARS FROM ME!!!!

My brother and I couldn’t hold in our laughter. insane and ridiculous.

Wow what kind of insecure person is worried about other peoples rings lol!

1.Last year my friend had a massive melt down right before her rehearsal dinner, she is normally a sweetie and I think the stress of everything got to her, and her and her wife just got in a fight in front of everyone. We were asking her questions about how to fix the room, and place settings, when she just lost her shit,  she started screaming not words just screaming loudly, then she was cursing up a storm and throwing stuff, after she ran out of steam she sat on the floor and just cried for like twenty minutes! Another bridesmaid, her brother, and I stayed behind to clean up the mess and manage to get their rehearsal dinner together by the time they got back.

2. Another person whom I now barely speak too, went on a rampage and rant towards most the bridal party, by the way the three of us had been friends since pre k! We got kicked out of the room and had to go shower in her parents room, and then had ten minutes to pull ourselves together when the photographer got there, because all of our stuff was in her room and she didn’t want us to come and get it. We were treated very badly all day by her, and to this day she never said sorry or tried to make amends, and she the one who didnt want to speak to us. She was nuts, she planed wedding meetings twice a month for her 13 month engagement. Had at least five or six diy parties which were mandtory, I attended none!<br /><br />I have given friends, family permission to slap me if I act up. I can excuse bridezilla moments if I know they are coming from stress and frustration, I cant tolerate it if I know the bride is just on a power trip and feels like she can treat people poorly because this is her once chance to be a princess for a day.

@TwoCityBride:  I just cracked the heck up over story #1. I have felt like doing that but never will…especially the crying on the floor part.

I cannot believe some of these stories are true!! Especially the ones about asking other people to take off rings…that would never even OCCUR to me to have someone do that just because they have more bling than I do!

@Peacelovelaughter

Yeah we all just laugh about it now, and she was embarrassed about it later. She was just really happy her wife had stormed out before it happened. At the time we were all just staring at her in shock with our mouths open. The rest of the weekend went fine, and she was ok during the planning. I guess she just reached her breaking point that day.
