Bridezilla: “A woman whose behaviour in planning the details of her wedding is regarded as obsessive or intolerably demanding.”
Although it’s hard to keep a check on your feelings, the majority of women do it because they’re scared. The thought of treating friends and family like crap for their big day isn’t nice. Not when some people are likely to bite back and give you a taste of your medicine.
Still, it’s nothing you should overly stress about as there are advantages of turning into a bridezilla. For one thing, there aren’t any growth spurts or gross scales! Here are the times when the disease can be helpful.
Nobody remembers whether you hired a planner or organised the event yourself. All they care about is having a great time so that is the most important thing. Whichever path you choose, there will always be people who judge. A wedding might be the happiest day of your life but it’s also a catch-22 situation. To adapt Pascal’s Wager, the bride might as well go all out to ensure she gets what she wants rather than compromising. After all, you only get married once (hopefully!). Try to politely decline rather than to berate so as not to upset people.
The Dream Venue
Everything has to be perfect, and the venue is no exception. As you’ll spend most of the day there, it needs to cover every base. Sadly, there are little things which brides and grooms have to forego to ensure they stick to their budget. Plus, nothing is going to be perfect. Still, a bridezilla doesn’t take no for an answer. That’s why she checks out furniture rental and convinces vendors to let her swap out the furnishings. Honestly, they’ve dealt with worse. Anyway, if you don’t ask, you won’t receive.
Sorry to burst your bubble of bliss, but not everyone you deal with is going to help. Some will appear to yet they’ll secretly overcharge and take advantage of your big day. Happy couples are content to give them a pass because they don’t want to ruin the occasion; a bridezilla doesn’t think along the same lines. She will speak up for her and her man to ensure they get the best deal possible. Calmly yet firmly pointing out that fees weren’t included is an excellent way to show vendors that you won’t step down.
You shouldn’t rely on this, but it tends to be true for most brides. After the wedding, everyone you were terrible too will let you off for your behavior. Why? It’s because they understand that weddings are stressful and you weren’t your usual self. While your loved ones won’t be over the moon, the majority of them will bite their tongues for your sake. After all, they want you to be happy. As long as you return to normal, it should be water off a duck’s back.
Remember that even bridezillas get their happily ever after.
