“Bridezilla, how dare you call me that? I wasn’t that bad, was I?”
Your closest friends and family maybe on pins and needles around you during wedding preparation and on that glorious day you say I-Do, but when the honeymoon is over, your real girls will tell you like it is. Here’s a few ways to know you may have went a bit over board as a soon to be Mrs.
1. Firing your wedding planner.
Keep in mind that your wedding planner is your mom. Although, your mom has never planned a wedding before, you wanted to save a few bucks by having your mom search through Pinterest board, after Pinterest board, to help make your day memorable. When mom forgets one minor detail she’s quickly fired however, you hire her back due to the fact that she’s your mom.
2. Requesting your bachelorette party to be held the day before the wedding day.
Well, what’s wrong with this you may ask? It’s a definite issue when your expecting everyone in the bridal party to be at the venue by 7am for hair and makeup. Although, you may not feel the need for sleep due to the butterflies tickling your belly, be considerate of those bridesmaids that want to get more than 3 hours of sleep after partying till 2am with you.
3. Yelling at your bridal party during rehearsal.
Right foot. Left foot. Step. Can be a bit intimidating for some of your bridal party members, especially the older ones. When you’ve spent over an hour on just walking down the aisle properly yes, that would make any woman a bit “touched”. Yelling at family members and friends that have volunteered their evening for practice is a bit much, don’t you think?
4. Making your bridesmaids “real maids” on your wedding day.
Holding your dress up while you go to the bathroom, satisfy junk food cravings, spot cleaning your shoes for scuffs, holding her spit-filled gum that she forgot to take out her mouth before walking down the aisle, dressing the bridesmaids in the fugliest dresses without considering their opinions, lastly, don’t request that your bridesmaids join a gym to be apart of your wedding.
5. You begin every sentence with…”It’s my day so….”
Yea, this officially makes the bridezilla statement your friend mentioned earlier so true. Beginning your sentence with “It’s my day so…” leads to a red flag statement.
