I know! You agree with me, I am not going crazy then? There's a possibility they won't be able to stand up now, and I dont' even care anymore!!!

That is great about your BM! It helps to have someone who cares and helps you out!

I have my sisters to fall back on and 2 close friends in the wedding that are phenomenal, I don't know what I would do without them.

Being that they are the ones with no phone/no internet, no way to be contacted... they should be the ones to reach out to you and ask you whats needed, or what's going on? UGH!!!

I got one pretty awesome BM... I think without her I would tell them go to put it where the sun don't shine, lol. She keeps me sane, lol.



XOXO,

I can't stand it!! I wish they never were in the wedding!!!!!!!! The groomsman is my cousin, but he is also my fiance's good friend, that is the ONLY reason why he is in it!! His wife is freakin crazy!!

They they have the nerve to mad at US because they feel we haven't reached out to inform them!!! They got married by courthouse so they have no idea!!

The other bridesmaid is just a ditz....so yea my wedding party is freaken crazy!!!

You are right people are selfish!!

That's ridiculous... how can someone disappear off the face of the earth when knowing they are a part of a wedding??? And they are married, so I'm assuming they know what a pain wedding planning is?

That is very selfish, too. I don't get people.

I had a new thing with one of my BMs. We decided to have the whole bachlor/bachloretty party in Atlantic City for a night... on a weekend. To start it was just the guys (w/out me of course), and we decided if the girls were up for it... then the girls, too. We'd go to dinner as a group then split up.

I invited the girls. 2 said yes right away no Qs. 2 said no... no $$$ (understandable). Last one... said IF I go this and IF I go that. Then tells me she is having second thoughts about it because of one of the girls who will be there. I told her... I dont want tension, so it's up to her. But offered her another night if she just wants to go out me, her and maybe another friend. Why did she get offended?????? Does she expect me to tell my BEST BM to not go?

She told me that she feels that she wouldn't say the same to her. I told her I would, BUT she (the best BM)had no second thoughts and basically she was going no matter who is going, even if she doesnt like them.

So, no matter what I say I cant please her.



XOXO,

Jen

I am lucky that my family and my bridesmaids are awesome, but I am very laid back anyway, and if they want to look like idiots go right ahead, lol. my future sis in law is just a gossip and drama queen which I am the complete opposite, so she is telling all of chris and my friends who she works with that I am a two faced bitch who thinks I'm better then everyone, so if she wants to think I am that way, so be it I just wont ever try to be nice to her again like I always have been. But one of our guy friends told her that I don't think I am better than her that I know I am better then her, I nearly died laughing that he told her that. Chris and I just need to hurry up and get married and move away from his family, cause all the women in his family are drama queens!

You sure can have a moment like that!!!!!!!! Geez some people are just so rude and annoying!!!!!!

Well I have a few I want to kill my groomsmen and bridesmaids moments.

First my sister in law, I love her, but sometimes....

anywho I asked my sisters and my future sis in law if they had any music they would like to hear at the wedding. My sisters gave me a few and my sister in law gave me two....tell me why she asked all of her cousins and friends if they have any requests??????

One of those cousins gave me a list of 20 songs....20 SONGS!!

Secondly I have a groomsmen who doesn't want to wear the shoes that we picked out with the tux and doesn't want to pay for them....geez they are just shoes!!!!

Thirdly I have a bridemaid that decided she doesn't want to wear the dress so she is wearing another dress.......she is 16 and a brat!!!!!! I was under the impression that she was goign to wear the dress I picked but I was just informed a few days ago that she will be wearing something else....geez!!!!

Fourthly- I have a bridemaid that doesn't have a phone or internet...which I did not know about and me and my fiance have been texting them info about the various dates of wedding activities, well tell me why her and my sister bump into eachother and my bridesmaid is yelling at my sister that I need to let her know about those dates and that I am basically slacking.......then she tells my sister she doesn't have a phone.... like that is my fault.

My wedding party has been driving me mad....there are other moments but it would be a novel!!!

It's seem that she is in need of the spotlight!! Good call in that you didn't have her stand up in the wedding, she would have just irritated you!

Horray for the wedding dress mark down!!! I love a good bargain!!! Ohhh I can't wait to see your dress! Do you have any pictures?

Well, she's always been one of those girls who's desperate to be in the center of attention...maybe part of why I didn't want her to be in the wedding lol....but, I really thought she could at least contain in for like 2 hrs....ohhh well! I still got an amazing dress!! Which...was supposed to be $856 but because it was discontinued and no other stores had it, was marked down to 199.99 YAAY. Wedding bonus!

Here's a fun story....

Originally I was having my wedding dress designed by a girl I knew a looong loong time ago. But, I had e-mailed her about some things and hadn't heard back so, I figured...well, when I go out to visit my mom, I'll try some things on just to get an idea of what I like and what looks good and everything. So, this past week I went to visit my mom who moved half way accross the country this summer, and we decided to go dress shopping. I knew one of my cousins was really upset that she didn't get to be a bridesmaid (blah blah blah) so I thought, if I invite her to the dress deal at least she'll be included. So...off we go. Well, I'm trying on dresses and I come out one time and I'm like Where's Vicki? my aunts like I dunno over there somewhere? And all the sudden she comes back around the corner with a dress FOR HER TO TRY ON....now, this is bad enough except a) she doesn't even have a BOYFRIEND.... and b) she's about 100 lbs soaking wet...and looks fantastic in anything she puts on. And there I am although the dress I chose made me feel beautiful I still have a long way to go before I don't look like a giant marshmellow..... GRRRR.

With our wedding being small, I thought of lots of fun things to do in terms of our wedding (cruise, the Carribean, etc...) and I decided just to do it out of town (well, out of state really) because I didn't want to feel like people would have to give up vacation time, and then worry about the travel, and I didn't want to feel like I was over-burdening them just to make it to my crazy fabulous wedding (lol). I truly love the people coming to my wedding, but I don't want to ask a lot of them just because it's 'my day' and I should be able to be unreasonable.

Life is not fair, or unfair, it is simply what you make of it!

Oh that's too funny a show called momzillas!!!

Ya I guess for me I am jsut all excited looking at wedding stuff too but i think the other part is that I dont know if our parents are helping out yet at all. So I am worried about the strressing of trying to save for it. Cause even on the budget I kinda already put together both me and Chad will have to save about $500 a month starting Sept. though Dec of 2009. But that is including everything rings and honeymoon and our spending money also. It's doable. But also its seems like a lot.

As far a being a bridezilla I haven't had that happen yet. But one thing that I am frustrted with is my best friend doesn't seem excited for me and I think it's more the fact that we are getting married in costa rica and I dont think her and her husband are gonna make it. and I feel like she is having attitude with me about it. I think she thuinks that we should be paying for everyone flight there cause that's what she sister did. got nmarried in jamaca and paid the flight for everyone. emoticon

I wouldn't consider myself a bridezilla, but I think all of us have our moments where we kinda snap. There's so much stressed involved with weddings, it is bound to happen lol emoticon

I do not consider myself a bridezilla, organized is what I would like to call myself! My mother on the other hand is a supervisor at a bridal store and being that I am the first of her 3 daughters to get married she already has our whole wedding planned and it's all opposite of what I have in mind! First it was arguing about if our wedding would be in MN where I grew up or in NE where I live and and have lived for a while... then it was about having an outdoor wedding (like I wanted) opposed to a traditional wedding in a church like she wanted... then it was the colors of TABLECLOTHS!!! I wanted brown she said the have to be white because it is more formal... and I said there is no white in the color scheme! My dress is ivory! Not a big deal... and then it was about the groom and groomsmens SHOES... we are having an outdoor wedding in June and my FI thought it would be fun to have brown leather flip flops with their khaki suits... I said fine the BM's are wearing flip flops too... needless to say after multiple arguments and telling her it's my wedding and not hers I told her they should make a show called MOMZILLA'S she didn't like that too much and has sice backed off a little bit, but not all the way!

lol I did the exact same thing when I was engaged 2 years ago!!!
I remember I registred with theknot.com and me and my sister were all excited and freaking out about all kinds of wedding stuff and when we looked at the main page it said we had like 800 days to go, we started laughing and said "I am pretty sure we have plenty of time!"

Planning is the fun part!!!!!! Take your time and weigh your options. Look up online things and call people and get quotes.

I would start looking things up online-you can get a good idea of wedding packages, most places do put prices online. It ranges on where you live, too. Most nice place around me are about 100+ a head for a nice reception at a hotel or something, but I got a place that's 60+ a head. Start looking up photographers, Dj's, that kind of thing too. That will help you get an idea of the cost.

MEGAMITENCHI AND Josie

thanks for the advice. I think what I have decided to do is to just kinda hold off for another month with trying to do so much planning. I was trying to do everything in one week lol which i realy dont need to do my wedding is n't till feb of 2010!!

And my boyfrined is out of town for work right now for 5 weeks. So I figured we and sit down then and kinda decide where we want to spend money. I am just gonna concentrate on losing weight and saving money. ( I dont always make the same amount of money every week so I dont realy know what my budget is but I figured this will give me a good 5 weeks to see where my budget is too ) Then we can plan!!!

But i did talk to my mom and she told me of a couple people that do cakes. It's just hard cause my mom is not in the same state as me. So she is not here to help me out at all.

I think the big thing we have to figure out is about the reception. WE are getting married in costa rica and will be haveing some kind of small reception down there for the people who coem to see us get married. But then we are planning on haveing a reception back here in minnesota also. But i want a traditional reception or least with the dance part. like the bride and grooms first and and the father/daughter dance and grooms/ mothers dance and the dollar dance ect. And i was thinking that i would have a sit down meal at it also but after talking to my mom she's like figure 10-15 a head, so i might do appitizers....I dunno.....

Hey there!!!!

Well I def didn't want to spend too much money on cake. I just want it to taste good!! :)

My cousin makes cakes, so we decided to have her make ours! She makes them delicious and they look pretty!!

MEGAMITENCHI is right. The two of you should decided where to spend the money and what is important to the two of you.

For us it was the dress and the reception. We cut a lof of costs out by buying silk flowers, and they very very pretty! My mom is arranging them (she used to be a florist)

I got lucky, the hotel requires they cater the wedding if you want to use it, and they include the cake in the per head estimate. The cake is made off-site by Kendall's Cakes, and I looked at her site, she says her cakes start at about $7 a head. I don't know if that helps?

The first thing on budgeting, I've found, is know where it's important to you and your fiance to spend money. Is it the dress? The venue? So then you know where you can save yourself money. I know I am willing to spend a bit extra on my veil because I am going to save it as a keepsake, but not my dress. You also have to have an idea of what you want, because then you can poke around and ask more specific questions. I have an account on theknot.com that I use to ask people questions, because I too, am having kind of a destination wedding, so I have no idea about certain things because I don't live there!

Let me know if I can help with anything else; I love planning!!

Life is not fair, or unfair, it is simply what you make of it!

Hi every one!! I am kinda new to the team just jioned middle of last week.

Sorry to hear about the issues with the mothers in laws and the friend issues and ect. But i to also agree about the stamps ( lol ) I dont want bells on my invites either. I want pretty stamps too.!!!

Well I am just starting my planning this last week. Well me and my boyfriend decided to habve a destination wedding so that its smaller and not so expencive versus having a 200-300 people wedding. And I went out and bought my planner a few days ago. And have been looking every thing over as far as the budgeting part and figured that we realy are not saving a whole lot only on flowers, his attire, and renting a reception site for back here in the states. So any way I started thowing some figures around on paper just to kinda get an estimated idea of what our wedding might cost and how much we need to put a side each month for the wedding. But then my bf was like that sounds realy low. and I was like ok its just to give us an idea. Well after reading on here some of the things people have said about cost I am like oh I am wayu off. Like for wedding cake I only put down $200. I didn't know what to put and it sounded good to me. but if we have close to 200 at our reception at $4 a person that's like $800 I am way off.

So any way i am kinda stressing out already about figuring out the budget. Any advice on what others have done. I am just soposed to call a bunch of places for every thing for the wedding just to fugure out our budget?

I'm sure we all have Bridezilla moments at one point. One of mine was definitely the liberty bell stamps, too. My FI just didn't get it.

I'm having a moment now with my FI. He's been working SOOOO much OT lately, and it's hard to even think about how many things I still have to do. I was telling him I need to go find vases this weekend with him since he told me he was off (we're doing our own centerpieces), and when I mentioned the vases to him... he all of a sudden said he got last minute OT approved. I am not mad that he is working cause I know he is trying hard to save up... for our future home and the wedding, but I'm upset that I am the one getting majority of this done and the rest I've been waiting for him to come with me and make decisions. Well... it was a big bridezilla moment. I kinda feel bad, but we only have 3 months left and it's going realllllly fast.



XOXO,

Jen

Ok, I got one actually.......my flower girl dress!

So I didn't think I was asking for too much when I asked my mom to make my neice a simple white cotton dress (she makes many of her clothes and they are amazing). She said yes and all is well.

Then I hear that she has some pictures to show me. Do I like this ivory dress with BIG brown polka dots? She and my sister thought it would work.
Ummmmm.......no thanks. (our colours are green and gold)
So then, look at these photos (they live far away)
It's a white organza dress with pink and blue and green flowers/vines.
ummmmm........no....white is good, cotton is good.
So I find her a pattern number and remind her that a simple white cotton will do but I wanted her to make it so it would be special.

So.....more photos....dresses from a store, which one do you like best she asked....I'll buy the one you like.

ummmm.....ok, I guess the white cotton one is good.


So, my bridezilla moment......"I SAID PLEASE MAKE A WHITE COTTON DRESS! WHITE. COTTON."

end rant.

Despite telling people we're getting married out of state (by like, four hundred miles!), there have been quite a few, who when they found out we were engaged, said," Oh, I want to be at your wedding!" and I'm just kinda in shock that anyone would say that. I really don't want to have more than twenty people, so I'm not sure how we're going to manage it. Oh, can I ask what you ladies think of my cake ideas? I'm not sure if I wanted to do cupcakes, or just small individual cakes?

Life is not fair, or unfair, it is simply what you make of it!

Yea, I am in the process of the guest list which is about 200 also, but I am having problems with people asking if they can come(cause Chris is still in College until Dec) and I don't really want them so I just tell them I don't know we have not done a list yet, lol.

I can see how that can be difficult!!
When it comes down to it, it is yours and your fiances decision. You two should just come up with the list and don't worry about anything else!!

We had to be super selective too, even though we have a guest list of 200. People keep telling us who to invite and we had to put our foot down.

So how do you deal with the whole guest list thing? FIM wants to invite people that when it comes down to it, I don't want to be there or pay for. Our wedding is so small that these extra five people (including some teenage boy) just simply don't belong. I've never met them, which means they don't fit in our whole intimate setting in the first place. Ughhh, it's so frustrating!

Me and fiance have moments were we act all moody..planning a wedding is a lot of work and very stressful. It's normal.

Everything is so expensive we have cut a lot of corners, but everything still adds up!!!!!!!!!

We did end up getting a photographer and videographer, for 1300. Which isin't that bad, and the photographers are good!

I wish I could do it for that price. My photographer is 2,000 alone.
Good luck with your FMIL, but great to hear you've got a guy that stands by your side. He stood up to mom, told her to call you and didn't give her the info for your family. He's a keeper.

Yea, I get mad at my fianc over stupid things but it only lasts for about 2 mins, lol.

On a good note, his mom is paying for the wedding flowers now because she wants to help out. I am kind of thinking its her ways of trying to have a say so in the wedding because I would not change the date, but I am keeping an open mind. Chris talked to her the other day and she wanted my mom's number to call and "discuss" wedding plans and Chris told her that she needs to talk to me cause I am paying for it(well my parents got me my dress and a photographer!!) and its all of my decisions not my parents. Well, she said never mind...lol...which makes me wonder what she wanted to talk to my mom about, but it would have been funny because my mom would have said the same thing Chris said. Its not her wedding and Alyssa makes all of the decisions, lol.

But 15,000 for a wedding, I am CHEAP!!! I am trying to be around 2500-3000 tops!! lol, I think I am at 1,300 right now(Church, Reception, Photos,dress). So I still have flowers, decorations, cake, and food. I am a bargain shopper and I hope his mom does not get mad if I decide to do half fake half real flowers!!

A few of my thoughts on your crazy people in your life.

Bridesmaid backing out because of a break up:
She's crazy, she was asked because she is a friend and even though it would be hard she should be there for you. But if she does step out don't worry about it and you don't have to have an even wedding party. I've got three bridesmaids and FH has two groomsmen, it is about who is a friend and important to you not what your "supposed to do"

Mother wanting to leave early:
Sorry to hear that she is being dificult, I hope she does come and remembers that it is about the two of you getting married and not her schedule. If she can't make the BBQ or doesn't want to you then know that your closest friends and family will be there.

Mother wanting to change the date:
See about the day is about you and you FH, if she has a problem with it ignore her and have your day. Don't let her pressure even when she obviously isn't speaking for everyone.

Heels:
Who cares no on sees them, be comfortable. What are they going to do lift your dress in the middle of the ceremony and check?

Bridesmaid from hell but part of the family:
I don't know the other members of the family but I suggest just being civil to her and everyone else is probably smart enough to know that she is crazy. Trust that they won't just take her word for anything and don't count on her for anything, she needs to get over herself

Wow, I'm sorry for all of you and moms and bridesmaids being crazy.

I'm lucky in that everyone wants to help...sometimes a bit too much. I'm planning the wedding in less than three months so family it being great and helping. Looking at flowers and things for me, but before I've even decided colors and things. They are helping but I'm starting to get overwhelmed, since the only way I'm handling it is taking everything one thing at a time.

And they keep telling me to it's your wedding if you want something get it. Well I can't afford everything. Our families are helping out but it isn't a limitless supply and we don't want a 25,000 wedding we are really trying to stay within 13-14,000 range. It is okay family, I'm fine with fake flowers for 300 instead of 700. That's 400 I can spend on my honeymoon then.

My Bridezilla moments aren't to my family and friends except for one instant. In finding my wedding dress I was told yes we can get it, oh no we can't not once but multiple times for multiple dresses. Luckily I have found one for $300, it is pretty and no more tears in the dressing room trying to decide.

Unfortunately my bridezilla moments are to my fianc. Luckily I've calmed down but the last two-three weeks were not good and I'm feeling terrible.

That really sucks about your bridesmaid-I'm sure she feels horrible.

What's up with that mom? Is she crazy? She wants you to change the date after you booked everything? You guys handle things so well, I'd be ready to hurt somebody. I still have a year to plan everything, but I"m guessing I'll turn out to be a total bridezilla. Yikes!

I pray that us brides don't get crazy groomsmen like that lol!
That is crazy about your fiances mom!
I'm glad that everything worked out!!
Momzillas are crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I have have been having trouble getting a Mariachi band for my wedding. My future mother in law called up a few and we liked one of the bands so we said send a contract over. I looked at the contract and the contract is not all what the band initially said. They said we only needed 300 dollars for the deposit. The contract said it needed half down which would be about 600 dollars, plus the contract said if we paid with check we would be charged an additional 5%......what the heck...

Anywho I have been trieing to contact them for 5 days now..and no word...so forget them!!
Now I have to try and find another one fast! We have less than 3 months and these bands get booked fast!

Oh and to make things worse one of my bridesmaids may drop out.....crapola

Her and her boyfriend are standing up (big mistake) and he cheated on her!! So now they broke up and I don't blame her if she doesn't want to stand up now.
So now I may have to replace her..and I have no idea who to pick....ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

Dam stupid cheating groomsmen!
I feel so bad for her and she spent her money already and bought the dress!!!

oh wow....I would be PISSED if that happened to me! But then again we are having our reception at Chris' fraternity house where we met....so should not be surprised if stupid boys do something bad!

I had a bridezilla moment the other week with Chris about his mother. She is a drama queen who has to have everything her way, and I am who I am and do what I want. Well we have the wedding date set with the church, photographer, reception venue, and so on. She wanted me to change my wedding date because she does not think her side of the family can come. I understand its winter and i even have family from all over the country too, and they said have what you want and we will make it. I also believe that if you give them enough notice they will not play vacations over the wedding and so on. Well she told Chris that we absolutely HAVE to change it because I am not being fair to her side of the family and blah blah blah. Maybe if everything was not planned already, fine, but not after. So I told Chris no and threw a fit that she would even yell at him about me not being considerate to her family and told him that if she has a problem come to me and tell me(cause i know she wont). Well she told Chris that his Grandmother said she CANNOT make it at all, so I was considering changing because HE really wants her there. Well Chris calls his Grandmother and tells him the same thing I have been saying about make the date whenever and she will make it. Also that his mom never called to talk to her, so his mom flat out lied to him to get me to change the date, that really pissed me off but I did not get mad at Chris about his moms mistakes. But yea, that's my moment and everything worked out, its just stupid! lol

This is not a bridezilla moment but rather a groomsman dumb moment I found at
www.etiquettehell.com

Many year ago, my FFIL, who is a professional wedding photographer, and my FH, were doing a wedding. Everything was apparently lovely, until the time for the speeches came around. The Best Man, who was proposing a toast to the Bride and Groom had a bottle of champagne with which he was going to toast the B&G. But what did he do? He shook it up, and sprayed it all over them instead!

The bride was apparently VERY unamused! And his excuse? That's what you're supposed to do with champagne... It was all caught on camera too!

LOL!!!! Act of congress for a Cake!
I was lucky I found a lady who does her cakes in town and she's quite reasonable, she does it as a hobby. So $400 for a very big three tier cake with all the fancy stuff. All good.
Josie- I like the idea of back-up shoes as this will be only the second time in my life when I have worn heels, the other being when I was acting in Romeo and Juliet at University and was forced by the director to wear them! Platforms sound great to me.

I don't think my mother will come round on the BBQ, she's adament about leaving as soon as possible and tells me all of the time that Mount Gambier is "boring" (she's been here once for two days and thinks she's seen it all :rolleyes:). But it give's my father and my stepmother a chance to spend some time with us and Luke's father.

Hope everyone's mothers' settle down a bit, (although I have to admit I'm slightly jealous because I wish my mother WANTED to be that involved!)

Phew! You girls have so much to get off your chest! If anyone wants to talk, I will gladly give up my time! I am planning my wedding (a month away! Yikes!) from 1,200 miles away and am just spending a LOT of time praying things are going to work out ... It is so hard when you are not able to go TALK to people. You have to rely on return phone calls and email...ugh. The only problem we've had really is finding my poor mommy something to wear (she is smaller than a ZERO and is about 5' tall) so it has been a challenge. LOL I did all the invitations myself (with a little help from my groom), we made paper fans with our photo and some quotations on them (my son helped me fold 100), I burned 100 mix cd's made up from music from our reception, and I have my dress and heels (and let your mom know I am changing into K-Swiss Sneakers for my reception! LOL It's an inside joke for my groom, but your mom ought to FLIP about that one!) My other issue that's come up is the cake. I mean, how the heck hard is it to make what I want? 3 tiers on top of each other, getting gradually smaller toward the top, no posts or fancy things, just cake on cake. Vanilla cake with each tier 2-layered with chocolate mousse & rasberry puree dolloped in between and the whole thing frosted with white vanilla frosting. Smooth finish so the words "Destiny, Believe, Serendipity, Faith, Hope, Laughter and Love" can be piped on the outside of the layers. WELL, you would think I need an act of congress for this cake! How much should a wedding cake like this cost? It's not huge, it's feeding about 50-60 people and it isn't fancy schmancy in my opinion... kind of plain like me! Sheesh! But doesn't it sound YUMMY?? Our color scheme is Brown/Rose so I thought the chocolate mousse/rasberry puree was perfect. One cake decorator said $4.00 per person and another has told me $5.50-6.50 per person. What? Don't you just price a cake based on it's size & fanciness?? That part has been rough, and it still isn't solved. I may just make the darn thing myself! LOL

My mom hates heels too....why does she want me to suffer sooooo jk emoticon

Oh another thing my mom keeps doing is she wants me to tell my future mother in law to wear navy blue...I'm like I am not going to tell her what to wear!

Then she goes on and on and on about it!!! My mom ended up picking a navy blue dress which is very pretty, and now she doesn't want my mother in law to wear a lighter color than her. She says if my mother in law does wear a lighter color that she will be out staged!

Josie, I TOTALLY understand. I never wear heels, so I'm sure by the end of the ceremony (which is only going to be about 15-20 minutes) I'll be in terrible pain. :P Tell your mom that I said she's ridiculous. lol

My mom has been so annoying though. It's not like she's being pushy, but every conversation we have about wedding stuff is like this:

"So I decided I want roses for the boquets, red for me and white for my girls."
"Uh huh...uh huh...that's nice. You know what you should do? You should make the bouquets all out of wildflowers!"

It's like, um...did you even just hear a word I said? And every convo is like that! I tell her what I've decided and she suggests something TOTALLY different as though I told her "I have no idea what to do for ____" LISTEN TO ME WOMAN. :P

Oh my gosh my mom does the same thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love my mom but geez she can be pushy.

I was looking for a back up pair of shoes for my wedding..cuz there is no way I can wear heels all day..my feet start hurting soooooo bad and I want to be comfortable that day!

Anywhoo I was looking for like a platform shoe and my mom kept trieing to talk me out of it, then I found the perfect pair..and I may end up wearing the darn back up pair all day instead of the heels.

My mom was like "OH no you can't wear those!!! They are not pretty and you HAVE to wear heels!"

Darnet I will wear what I want!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't want my feet all hurting!

Then after I tried them on she loved them too.....darn mothers!

She is still trieing to convice me to wear my heels though but no one is going to see them anyway!!!!!!!!!

I don't think I've done anything too Bridezilla-ish yet, other than maybe yelling at my mother a few times. But in my defense, my mother keeps listening to the decisions I've made, and then trying to convince me to change them.

One thing I did get a little silly over was the date. I had chosen July 11th (next year) for sort've a silly reason (his birthday is the 11th of December and mine is the 11th of April) but once I got it in my head that that was the date, it was like NO OTHER OPTION. I had the hardest time booking everything because I became set that it absolutely 100% HAD to be July 11th. :P

I don't think I'm a bridezilla but I have had people (who aren't really close to me) tell me that I am.

1. I don't want people at our wedding who I would be mad about feeding them. We are paying for our wedding ourselves and if you aren't truly supportive of our union then I don't want to feed you.

2. I will not have an open bar. If you don't like it then don't show up at my reception.

That's about it.

Back and trying to stay on track.

I don't think I'm being too bridezilla-ishexcept when it comes to my mother, who I basically told to get over herself when she threatened not to come because her flight time leaving town got moved (the flight the day after the wedding - she's not even staying for the family BBQ!~)
The hardest thing about it is that while my mother is being a Pain, my FH's mother passed away last year and we know that she would have been here helping us out from the moment we got engaged!

Tina, That sucks- about your (not) friend, but tell her that white gold is more unique than boring old yellow gold (no offence to anyone with yellow gold rings intended here - I just don't like yellow gold, I'm a silver, platnum and white gold girl myself).

Ha ha ha. I never look at stamps onthings I get in the mail. We used the never go up stamps although ours have red flowers on them. For me it was just making sure the darn things went out on time. (I'm a bit of a scatter brain with things like that). My future MIL wants to change my seating plan. i told her uh un, no way, forget it. Now she is doing a slow burn. She is the type of person though, that if you let her dictate to you once she will try all the time.

I can and I will! Just try to stop me!

I actually had a completely rediciluous bridezilla moment last week that I am laughing about now.

I was talking to the FMIL about the invitations I'm having designed, and somehow the topic of "purchasing the stamps" came up, and I said,"Well, I am going to wait to buy the stamps until next year, because the prices will most likely go up again." and she said,"Well, you could buy the forever stamps now and the price won't change."

Welll...I looked at her and said,"Ohmygoodness, I am NOT having that ugly stamp on my wedding invitations." and then went home and complained to my MOH all about it.

Stupid bridezilla moment? Definitely...

But I'm still not having the ugly bell stamps on my wedding invitations...

Well heres the thing...long story short, she was my friend from a long time ago, and she is HOW I met my fiance, he is in her family. She freaked because we started seeing eachother, and didnt talk to me for years. So she started talking to me again, and has this HUGE chip on her shoulder about everything. She starts fights with me all the time about stupid stuff and puts up this defensive "I'm better than you no matter what" wall when she talks to me. SO anyway, I have to be civil to her because I dont want to start a famliy war...and knowing her she will try and sabotage us to the family and I cant have that happening. She already started rumors within her family about me calling me a slut and a skank and all and its because she mad at me for dating someone in her family, which to her is taboo. But in my defense, you cant help who you develope feelings for, and who you love...so whatever. I just have to keep the peace. I dont want to talk to her, but if I dont sign on my instant messenger at work, she sends me emails and text messages until I do, and then if I tell her I'm busy working, she says "yeah right, liar" and then accuses me of ignoring her. Yeah shes a freak and needs to get a grip. Better yet, build a bridge and GET OVER IT!

E11TEENA She isn't an on again off again friend. She isn't your friend PERIOD! Cut her from your life if you can. You will be the richer and happier for it.

As for being a Bridezilla? One of my bridesmaids thinks I am. All the others think I'm very easygoing. The one who thinks I am, welllll. She isn't planning to help with the hall set up the day of. We have to decorate inside and out since my ceremony is outside. She plans to get her hair done (without us, although we are all getting ready together and she was invited). and have a buuble bath and manicure and spend the day relaxing. Meanwhile, the rest of the wedding party now have to get up 1/2 hour earlier to make up for the stuff she was supposed to do. We alll had to change our hair and make-up appointments because without help we can't make the original ones in time. When I told her I would reaslly like to have her with me and need her help she made it sound as if I were being unreasonable. She said the caterer was supposed to decorate for us! The caterer?!? What planet is she from?
Anyway that is my vent. Thanks for listening.

The only person I have been bridezilla-like around is this girl that is DRIVING me nuts!!! I have been on again off again friends with her, and I was telling her lots of ideas that I have and she wasnt engaged at the time. WELL..now she is and she is STEALING ALL MY IDEAS. ITS DRIVING ME CRAZY! So I let my emotions get the better of me...she says the most ignorant things to me...like she told me that my ring was stupid..STUPID. MY ENGAGEMENT ring that I LOVE MORE THAN ANYTHING is stupid??? AND then tells me that its UGLY because its white gold. YEAH..nice huh? SO I let her have it... I told her that she should really keep those feelings to herself, because she was hurting mine and just because we may not agree on things doesnt mean that either of us are wrong....it just means we have differing opinions and there is nothing wrong with that. AND LITERALLY everything that comes out of my mouth...she thinks I am INSULTING her...GET OVER YOURSELF! HAHA...

Wait a second...now that I think of it..maybe the bridezilla in this scenario isnt ME... GRR!

So yeah just wondering...any one else feel like they have at times turned into a bridezilla?

I thought this would be a funny topic. emoticon

I swear these past few days I have been flipping out at stupid things...I think I'm just stressed. The funny thing is after everything was all said and done I laughed at myself for being so stupid and of course apologized to everyone.......geezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
