Im the casual, laid back, hate attention type girl. Even on birthdays Im whatevers with. On my wedding day, its my time to shine, I rarely ask for help or get spoiled. Im so thankful that for my wedding, I can ask for anything I want and get it.

I'm wanting to make sure that I don't get this way, but it's an interesting point that sometimes it can stem from disorganization.

Omg I can totally relate to the "guest list" part I have been asking my fiance for his list since SEPTEMBER. I mailed out the invitations the first week of January a week later he needs to add more people. He said he forgot. The problem with this is we have a 100 person cap. So thoes last min people will not be able to come. Not being mean but were on a budget. And i think 4 months was long enough to get a guest list ready

I haven't had a bridezilla moment yet, nor do I want one.  I am pretty laid back.  I made sure all my bridesmaids loved the dress before we decided on one, and I ask my FH's opinion on absolutley everything.  We decide everything together.  I also have not made any demands of anyone or forced people to bow at my feet like the girls on the actual TV show.  I think there are better and more adult ways to handle situations than acting like a crazy psycho

To be honest, i wasnt too bad but my bridezilla came out when my dress was late being delivered and when the horse and carriage i'd dreamed of for years was deemed 'tacky' by my then FI

So far planning has been smooth sailing. I have had to bring my MOB back to reality when she invited friends of hers that wasn't on the wedding guest list to my shower. She felt because she knew some of my long distant family members wouldn't make the trip I could make up for it in gift by inviting them. Ugh, how tacky! No thank you. Less gifts are just fine by me.

I almost broke down and had a bridezilla moment this month. 6 months away from our wedding, my FI got a job promotion and so we moved 2 hours away from our then home and current wedding location. No big deal. However the jewely I had purchased was lost in the move! I am pretty sure i have moved every item in my house at least 3 times. I finally accept that my jewelry is likely gone and begin looking for new earrings etc. I found a beautiful new pair of earrings and the next day i went to purchase them and they are gone!!! I am not only annoyed that my things are missing and that i have to spend more money but now i am having trouble even finding new jewelry. Fingers crossed that i don't explode :(

I am 94 days away from my wedding, and my sister is pretty much the only one that calls me a Bridezilla. It bothers me buy I try to ignore her. I am not a spoiled brat we are paying for our own wedding so if I want something in particular and can afford to get it, I will!

I haven't had a bridezilla moment, so far everything is done and all the DIY's are done. We are paying for half of our wedding and my mom is covering the other half. We decided to do a lot of DIY's to put our own creativity into the wedding as well as not go broke having a beautiful wedding for cheaper. Our entire wedding is less than 6,000.00 and our guest list is 400 hundred people. I know it won't be perfect as well as the most beautiful wedding ever, but I'm marrying the man of my dreams so why do I need "perfection" the day will be perfect for me.  I think you just cannot get consumed by the wedding or else the crazy part of yourself comes out. I am very laid back and so is my fiance. I also try to not think of it as my day, I'm trying just to look at it like a really fun party. That way I don't get dissapointed when everything dosen't go exactly as planned. It's just one day out of a million and the wedding isn't what is the most important thing, the marriage afterwards is the sweetest part.

I've got cranky over vendors double booking me,I've had 3 do it to me including my photographer so the last vendor who double booked me I told them they don't deserve to be in the wedding business/industry and i'm sick of people stuffing me around in my town.
