How to Spot a Crazy Bridezilla

27 Jun

Da da da daaa da da da daaaaaa. You know you recognize that tune. And since we’ve just about made it through the first month of ‘wedding season’ you may have already even heard it a few times this year. There’s no denying it, most weddings are fun. It’s a great time to get together with friends and family members, eat fancy food, enjoy an open bar, and celebrate the beautiful bride and groom. Nothing can ruin a day like this, right? Wrong.

Don't mess with bridezilla.

For reasons unknown to normal members of society, planning a wedding can turn some women into a raging, evil bridezilla. As soon as a diamond is slipped on this woman’s finger, she morphs into a psychotic, self-centered, she-devil of a bridezilla. This woman does not shutup, sleep, or smile until everything for her big day is perfect. As a result, everyone hates bridezilla.

How to Recognize a Raging Bridezilla:

1.) She makes her bridesmaids agree to lose weight for her wedding. And then weighs them.

2.) Bridezilla holds weekly bridesmaid meetings. Attendance is mandatory.  No exceptions. Anyone not present will be thrown out of the wedding party (as if that’s a punishment?)

3.) Planning a wedding is a group effort. Bridezilla ‘reserves’ every Saturday of her mother, sisters, and bridemaids for one year leading up to the wedding. After all, what else could possibly be more important than her wedding?

4.) Bridezilla refers to her wedding as her “special day.” The groom is rarely mentioned.

5.) Bridezilla is obsessed with all of her wedding stationary. She has a special fondness for her thank you notes, even although her wedding day is still six months away. She carries samples of this wedding stationary with her at all times, so strangers can admire her good taste.

6.) Bridesmaid dresses are lime green, spandex and $400.

7.) Money is no object in planning a wedding, even though bridezilla doesn’t have that much of her own. Nothing but the best for this broad.

8.) The wedding ceremony is at noon, but the reception doesn’t start until 6pm. Whatever. It’s her “special day,” so everyone else can just deal with it.

9.) Bridezilla is registered at Tiffany’s, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdale’s. The cheapest item on the registry is a $200 crystal fish statue.

10.) Bridezilla gets mad if guests don’t dress up to her standards on her wedding day.
