Do you get the sneaky suspicion you are becoming a Bridezilla?
Wedding planning is hard and stressful and can make the nicest, calmest bride to be into a Bridezilla.
Here are five signs you may be a Bridezilla. If any of these ring true, take a step back and reflect on why you are planning the wedding.
1. Are your friends and family avoiding you?
The number of catch ups are dwindling. It maybe you are talking too much about the wedding. Now we do need to face the facts that not everyone will be a thrilled as you about your upcoming wedding and you do need to ensure that you remember there are other important such as birthdays that will still occur. Take some time out of your wedding planning and reconnect with your friends and family. You may also consider having a wedding planning free weekend away your with fiancée.
2. Whine, wine, wine
No this is not a spelling mistake. When you are planning your wedding are you
a. whining and
b. reaching for the wine?
It is time to regroup and enjoy the planning process. Your wedding day goes by so quickly so the planning process should be an enjoyable time.
3. You have had a fallen out with your bridesmaid
You have sent an email 10 minutes ago and they have not responded.
This is time is also stressful for the bridal party especially bridesmaids. When you choose your bridal party also make sure you outline any expectations. I am not saying lay down the rules but it is important that you let them know if they will have any expenses (will they need to pay for their dress, hair, make up, etc). This will ensure that your bridal party can start saving and will help eliminate any undue stress.
4. You have a checklist for your checklist
I am a huge fan of the checklist and I get great satisfaction from crossing off an item on the list. However you can overdo the checklist and make your wedding be a more like a drill team.
5. Your budget is out of control
You now want a firework display as you leave and you will get it, no matter what.
Your wedding day is to share your love story with your family and friends. Will they remember the firework display, maybe but you can still have the wedding of your dreams within your budget. When planning your wedding stick to your budget, otherwise you will find yourself stressing even more about where you will find the money you don’t have or you will start go without (remember those all important catch ups with friends and family) to find the added money.
If you find yourself still stressed and need some assistance.
