We want the perfect wedding, so we act like a bridezilla at some point. We organise and plan it far before the big day. Everything is pre-planned in your head, and all that remains is for you to make it happen. You can’t, however, expect anyone to get in your way.
Consider how difficult it would be to plan everything for that day while meeting the needs of both families. Many people to consider when planning a wedding, and we can’t just ignore them, which is the most challenging obstacle.
Before Wedding Planning
The prospect of wedding planning enthrals brides until a problem arises. In reality, not everything you have planned for your wedding will be possible. If you are in this situation, you will be confused about everything, so it is also essential to spend time with your mother and mother-in-law and seek advice.
Because you’re building a relationship with your mother-in-law, now is a great time to bond before the wedding. Bridezillas should learn a few things from their mothers before beginning wedding preparations.
During the Wedding Planning
It’s easy to become stressed when planning a wedding, which is why it’s critical to stay in touch with your partner. Discuss the wedding, plan it, and prepare for it together because exchanging ideas with your partner will help you strengthen your relationship.
Bridezillas emerge when no one can assist them or support them on their journey. That is why it is also critical to be open to other people’s perspectives and advice. Don’t just focus on your idea because it may need to be tweaked.
Preparation of Entourage Dresses
Never put too much pressure on yourself to have the perfect wedding entourage. Bridezilla doesn’t always take the bridesmaids’ style and fit into account, which makes the bride look bad. You can’t be delicate and insult these people just because you’re a bride and their friend. You could simply have a conversation with them and make some changes to ensure that your wedding is not ruined.
Theme and style are only a backdrop; remembering and sharing the memories you’re about to make with those who matter most to you is what makes the wedding unique and beautiful.
We understand that you want to choose a meaningful date for yourself. But, before you become a bridezilla, you should be aware that some of your friends will be unable to join you on the specified date due to unforeseen circumstances. Even if you notify them ahead of time, things will not always go as planned.
Don’t act as if the absence of one person will cause your wedding to fall apart. Our friends have their own lives, so don’t make them feel guilty; it’s unhealthy for your friendship.
We all want the perfect picture to remember a special occasion. Brides are always looking for a good photo of themselves with their family and friends. We can not help but notice how our expectations don’t always match reality. Do not become a bridezilla if the outcome is unacceptable. Turning yourself into a bridezilla will ruin your entire experience, so just go with it.
Matching Wedding Hairstyles
It’s lovely to have matching hairstyles for your bridesmaids at your wedding, but you don’t have to ask them to cut their hair just to have a uniform look at your wedding. You don’t have to be in charge; simply delegate all styling to them or the make-up artist. Don’t waste time micromanaging this. Concentrate on your wedding and enjoy the occasion. Your hairstyle will not ruin your marriage.
It’s a Wedding, Not a Runway Show
A wedding and a fashion show are not the same things. You cannot tell them that they must go on a diet to attend your wedding. They are not invited to the event to show off their bodies. As a result, you must focus your attention on the ceremony. Even if we want everything to be perfect, keep your friends in mind.
Shocking Bridezilla Stories That’ll Leave You Speechless
From MommaBearJam on Reddit:
“I had an ectopic pregnancy in which the baby attached to my fallopian tube, which then burst, and I almost bled to death. Well, my friend got engaged shortly after that pregnancy, and when she asked me to be her bridesmaid, she said that I would be ‘required’ to wait to try and have another baby until after her wedding… Not because there would be a small child at the wedding, and not even because she didn’t want me to be ‘fat’ at her wedding. But because if I lost another child, it would take the attention away from her engagement and wedding! I was so shocked that I declined and haven’t spoken to her since.”
From remberzz on Reddit:
“The father of the bride had a heart attack, and as he was being carried out on a stretcher, the sobbing bride yelled, ‘How could you ruin my wedding like this?!’”
From theuncannyvalleys on Reddit:
“I couldn’t attend my friend’s last-minute destination wedding because I had to travel to visit my dad — who was dying of cancer — to handle hospice arrangements. She was pissed, and tried to guilt-trip me because I couldn’t afford both plane flights. That was the end of our friendship.”
From Hard_at_it on Reddit:
“My wife’s best friend is a florist, and she gifted her services to her friend’s wedding. Well, afterward, the bride and her mom got pissy at her because she didn’t give them an additional gift. Let’s conveniently forget the $1,000 in floral products she gifted to the wedding! It’s a rift that has never been healed.”
From CasuConsulto on Reddit:
“She wouldn’t let our friend — who had breast cancer and was in chemotherapy — sit down after walking down the aisle.”

How Should You Handle Unexpected Changes?
Be open to the ideas and suggestions of those around you. Take their advice and respect it, and get to know the people who will be working on your wedding. Allow the wedding planners to handle the changes and concentrate on the ceremony as a bride to avoid being a bridezilla.
You’re about to embark on the next chapter of your life, and your closest friends and family have gathered to witness the most important and memorable day of your life. Because the wedding must be meaningful, you should proceed with caution.
