There are demanding brides, and then there are bridezillas. These ladies fall into the latter category.
No wedding guest is safe.
Weddings can be stressful, but they don't have to be. Missed expectations can lead to ruining the best relationships with the people who were there for you to support you on your best day. If you find yourself shifting towards bridezilla mode, it's not too late.
Being engaged is the most exciting time of your life. The love of your life just proposed and you get to marry him! Yes!!! It's so exciting it's bringing a smile to my face right now. However, planning the wedding isn't quite as exhilarating. There are tons of things to think about that no one tells you. Here's the cold hard truth about wedding planning so you can be prepared.
It's the bride's privilege to ask her wedding party to dress a certain way for her wedding. It's tradition. She can tell them what jewelry and shoes to wear, too. She can even ask everybody to wear their hair up, or down, if she's super picky. But she absolutely, positively CANNOT ask anybody in her wedding party to alter their physical characteristics in any way.
First thing to do here is to be a good friend and talk to her about it, because you don't want to carry bitterness into your wedding day. Secondly, tell her you'll understand if she can't be as involved and you hope she understands the same for you.
She might be your fiancée, sister, best friend or daughter. You love her and want nothing but the best for her and her dream wedding. You were ecstatic when you found out she was engaged, but now, well let's just say when you see her number come up on your call display, a sense of dread washes over you.
Every engaged gal fears being called the B-word. You know which one I'm talking about. When you're planning your wedding and things aren't going quite as you thought they would, it's actually not all that difficult to slip into the role of a bridezilla. We've all been there a time or two and it's not pretty.
