Millions of posts about Bridezilla attacks happening all over the world don’t point out the reasons for the attacks.
Reading hundreds of stories along the years and meeting Bridzillas in my business, sparked my curiosity about the reasons why perfectly normal, lovely women turn into Bridezillas?
Once the ring is on her finger, this sane and composed woman transforms into an unreasonable demanding and spoiled bride-to-be, as many would perceive her. Not every bride transforms, but per the name, I’m focusing here on those who do. Focusing on the Cinderella who transforms into her step sister!
There are so many reasons why a Bride turns into Bridezilla, among them:
1Wedding preparation with all its requirements of searching for venues, caterers, DJ, florist, wedding planners, invitations, décor, accommodations, etc.
2Finding the perfect dress and all its accessories.
3Finding the perfect Bridesmaids dresses.
4Financial requirements and trying to stick to a budget.
5Etiquette rules. To do what, when, how, who and not to offend who about what!
6Interfering friends and relatives who mean well but want to impose their own taste or ideas.
7Etc. many more details.
These are all stressors that would drive any person insane! Every detail that is needed to prepare for the big day was never on the bride’s mind. She imagined being a princess on that day and the whole picture was designed and completed; how? She really never focused her attention on what goes into it. Except of course, if she had the experience with one of her friends and relatives that involved her in the details.
So, you see, I feel sympathetic when I hear about a Bridezilla.
