OMG I am a bridezilla!
I came to this conclusion on Tuesday night. My fiancé and I were on our way home after a week away skiing at the dam when we called into my parents’ place.
My parents have been generous enough to throw us an engagement party at their place in a few weeks time and so we was just checking in with how things were going. Or so I originally intended.
Instead, I found myself being short and rude to Mum and Dad as they tried to explain what they had already planned. What they had decided wasn’t bad at all, and they had even booked the town hall in case of rain (great forward thinking). Dad was suggesting ways to hang the lights that would have been practical but didn’t fit my vision and so I was being difficult. They were trying their hardest to accommodate my wants for the party but for some reason this offended me and made me feel useless.
I’m not sure why? Maybe stress? Although I had just been holidaying so I was feeling pretty relaxed. It’s most likely because I have grand plans in my head of how every little detail should be. But really, the details don’t matter for an engagement party. It’s all about sharing the love with friends and family. In my bridezilla rage I had forgotten this.
So hindsight, how about it. It’s a great thing. Although it’s pretty embarrassing to admit to having a bridezilla moment, at least I can recognise it now before the wedding. Imagine if I were to behave like I had the day before the wedding in front of my in-laws… I WOULD DIE of shame.
I know I’m not the only one out there who is planning a wedding. Just please promise me if you are planning your wedding that you will not become a bridezilla! Lots of people will offer you advice and suggestions for the big day and they aren’t trying to stress you out or undermine your decisions. It’s all coming from a good place and people tend to offer advice because it makes them feel useful.
So, I guess since the wedding is in September this could be like a mini new years resolution- DO NOT BECOME A BRIDEZILLA IN THE LEAD UP TO YOUR WEDDING!
Instead, just be a legend.
Love TRB xx
