Bridezillas How to Handle Them

27 Miracles every now and then encounters a good reading article.  here is one from AAWP on Bridezillas.

“One of the major bridal magazines wrote an article they entitled Brides Behaving Badly. We guess it’s their take on the “Bridezilla” phenomena that has swept the country-even resulting in a TV show of the same name. Good Grief! Why is it that an engagement ring becomes a bride-to-be’s license to be haughty, witchy (for want of a better word ) and demanding. The article in Elegant Bride gives this advice, “Don’t treat these people (family members, friends, etc.) like your loyal subjects.” We take it one step further, “Don’t treat them like slaves.”

One of our consultants told us of a bride who told her pastor that he was NOT to walk in front of her during the ceremony because she wanted everyone to see her. This same bride called her fraternal grandparents two days before the wedding and told them she didn’t care if they attended her wedding or not-and she never ordered them a corsage or boutonniere from the florist. We can proudly say that our AAWP consultant did the right thing and when the grandparents showed up at the ceremony, she provided them with flowers! The grandmother was teary eyed in appreciation. The bride, however, went ballistic on our consultant, telling her she had no right to do what she’d done-and told her to take the flowers from the grandparents. Our consultant refused and told this Bridezilla that she had done the right thing! And she did.

Another of our AAWP consultants wrote about a bride who threw a tantrum in a bridal shop. Her mother, obviously used to this behavior, simply turned to her and said, “Did you take your Prozac today, dear?” An owner of a large, elegant bridal salon in Boston, told us that a bride told her to *** *** when she was told that she needed an appointment to try on gowns. WHAT?! Let’s get a grip here!

A wedding is but one event in your life-and it is THE DAY to be most gracious hostess you can be. It’s your job to plan your wedding with civility and kindness. Be kind, be civil and always put yourself in the other person’s shoes. Make your fiancé proud of you though all the stress, rigors, and emotions of wedding planning. He’s the one who should say, “WOW, what a woman! Nothing shakes her. I know that she’ll be able to handle any situation that comes up in our life just because of the wonderful, common sense way that she’s tackled this wedding.” Happy Weddings All! ” http://www.aa-wp.com/wedding-planning/
