So my wedding is in 2 days, Sunday, and I just had a full blown bridezilla moment at men’s warehouse. The pants they ordered my FH were too tight! Please share your bridezilla moments so I don’t feel like such a crazy person!!

    I screamed and cried in the car to go pick up postage for Invites because the church, my FMIL, and my FH were telling me that I couldn't have the guest book at the church because it's not how they have seen it before. I lost it. It doesn't cost extra just put the damn book on the table. I'm the bride and I want a guest book. Seriously. We are having a guest book at the church.

    I don't know what will happen if something goes wrong 2 days before.

    Will they be able to fix it?

    I'm on your side here. Why not have it at both the church and the reception? You never know who may miss their chance to sign it. I know there's been a couple of times I almost forgot because of a line or it was hidden behind a gift.

    I haven't had a full blown Bridezilla moment, but my FH and I have had a spat about where a couple of his single friends are sitting. My argument was they're single and they can go where there is space. Nope, had to re-arrange 2 tables to accommodate 2 guys that probably won't say a word to anyone.

    Right! I was baffled as to why this was such a huge issue. I even told my FH after the blow up that it's such a tiny detail, just let me have it. I understand that if what i wanted was $1,000 extra there would be an issue to discuss.

    My sister doesn't live near me, several states away and I had a moment when our mother kept saying I was mean for not picking her as MOH.
    I love my sister, but she works the graveyard shift several states away she can't do anything useful like a MOH would.

    I felt like I was pretty calm while planning but the day before the wedding we were setting up the venue and my husband had left with his friends to pick up our getting ready food. Not only did he take 3 guys with him and left all of us women to stay and move tables and chairs. On top of that, the piece of paper that had all of the set up info on it, including where flowers went and how many, etc. was in his car. I was basically losing my mind because they were off having a nice day and us ladies were slaving over the venue and I had to try to set up off memory. I had a REAL bridezilla moment then.

    I think the only thing I had a moment over was chair covers.
    Hubby and I told the venue we know they're included but we dont want them if they arent required.
    Mom wanted us to have them. We said no.
    Then the venue coordinator kept trying to convince us that they would look great and give the venue that extra pop. But also kept saying in that email "I know you don't want them but..."
    Like you KNOW I didnt want them, my answer hasnt changed....stop asking!!!
    Looked just fine to me without them!!!

    So far I haven't really had any huge ones in my opinion and have been pretty calm. However, at the end of my bridal shower all of my girls, my mom, me, and FH were all helping load up all the gifts in FH's truck and my moms car. I had gotten a lot of fragile gifts and certain gifts were going to different houses as we are moving 2-3 weeks after the wedding, and people were literally just grabbing gifts without asking me anything and shoving them into the two cars. I'm super type-A so this freaked me out and completely stressed me out. I get they were all just trying to help and make the process fast but I cannot stand feeling out of control when it comes to me and my belongings. I kept asking people to please do x with x gifts, or to ask me first which car things should go into and no one was listening. I had a mini freak out (didn't say anything to anyone, just felt super stressed and annoyed and probably looked pissed lol) but got over it quickly.

    I became so frustrated with my venue that I cancelled it completely! Luckily, there was an email trail of my lack of satisfaction. As a result, they refunded me my deposit!

    Oh dear lord I am so afraid of this! Seriously my prom date in high school did not have time to try on his rental tux until the day of and it didn't fit. because of it not fitting and well he wasn't a nice person, he seriously ruined the entire night for us. FH is 1000x a better man than that guy but I know an ill-fitting tux would ruin his night and mine by extension so I am already planning to go full blown bridezilla when his tux comes in if it isn't perfect.

    We added on a second photographer that we hadn't met before hand (big mistake) and I'm pretty sure she thought I was a bridezilla but I feel like I was justified. She arrived really early and came to our hotel room. I told her to go to the guys, my MIL took her and told her she wanted to finish her hair before she was in any photos and the photographer was like "how are you not ready yet its your son's wedding" After taking photos of the guys she came back to me of the girls and kept asking me to change. I told her not yet because its still early and I want pictures of us in our PJs which our main photographer totally understood. Then my mom went back to her room to use the bathroom and the photographer was like "Where is your mom she needs to be here right now" So again I was like we have time, just let her use the bathroom! Then it was time for ppl to change, the main photographer (male) excused himself but she stayed and actually took a photo of the flower girl changing (she put her dress over her clothes then took her clothes off under the dress so she wasn't naked but still....). So then I asked for everyone except my mom and MOH to step into the other part of the room so I can change privately. The bridesmaids stepped out and photographer stayed... So I said again "I need privacy" she still didn't move.. So I got attitude and said "I'm not changing until you get out!!!!!" Then after the wedding we got a bunch of photos done outside, once it started to rain I said we should move under the overhang, the main photographer agreed and she (the second) said no wait. So I was like "That's it. I'm done. I'm going inside."

    My moment was so ridiculous but here we go.....I have been watching what I eat and up every morning at 5:00 am to get a workout in before work. We had planned to meet up with some friends for a cheat meal, Pizza and beer...mmmmmmm just the thought makes me so happy. Anyways our "friends" canceled on us at the last minute! I was so upset and FH didn't want to go anyways because he said I was doing so good and there was no reason to tempt us. I was so mad I cried and yelled at him that I didn't care if I was skinny and being healthy is over rated. I swear I was pouting like a toddler. I STILL haven't had my stupid Pizza and Beer LOL.

    My birthday is coming up....I better get my damn cheat meal lol

    I asked for a Mrs. Bag for Christmas, not wedding themed so I can use it when I start teaching this fall.
    My sister lovingly made me a bag that says Mrs “new name” with diamonds(not usable for school in an everyday basis) on it. Plus it’s so small I can maybe fit a couple of spiral notebooks in, nothing for the wedding.
    When we got home Christmas night I had a huge tantrum/melt down in front of my now husband (crying, screaming, threw the bag) because it wasn’t what I wanted. He let me scream because he loves me. It made me feel better and no one but him knows how much I freaked out about it. I used it for an emergency bag day of. In the end it all worked out. But I still feel stupid thinking back on it.

    Agreed. In fact, I know my fiance's friends had their guestbook at the church. We had been dating a short period of time and I intentionally avoided signing it because we hadn't been dating that long at that point. If we broke up, I didnt really want to be on their home decor display where they could point me out as "that rando Ryan dated for a while".

    I'm about to have a bridezilla moment on my coordinator. We agreed in July (when we booked) that we would swap seagrams for Jameson. It's in the contract. There is no added cost. I meet with her yesterday and she says "oh so I see were switching to Jameson for an upcharge." No, we're not. Try me. I am so easy. I don't bother her. I don't care about the details. I will not play games though. Not 3 weeks before the wedding. We are spending so much money at their establishment between the rooms, the wedding and the rehearsal dinner. Like suck up the 8 bucks you turd.

    You go girl!! Our venue has been difficult to work with at times and we are paying them A LOT. If you want Jameson and it's in the contract, you should get Jameson!!
