If you're a bride who feels on the edge of her sanity, take comfort in this fact: Even the most levelheaded women turn into bridezillas under the stress of wedding planning. To prove this point, three women were willing to share what made the bridezilla inside them rear their frantic heads. Take a look below.
"I was very laissez faire about wedding planning — until the last week, that is, when I realized my laid-back attitude meant none of our programs, signage, or favors had been assembled. I went into full panic mode, and definitely took out my frustrations on my family and friends who gathered assembly-line style to help me piece together everything. I fussed at people for not going fast enough, for misaligning the edges of the programs, for tying bows wrong. I was a total jerk to people who were just trying to help me." — Allie
"As a Southern bride, a large wedding is almost a requirement. So, of course, my bridezilla moment was over RSVPs. Being that I am Southern and dramatic, I was a bridezilla at least once a day after my daily RSVP check with my parents and fiancé. I felt terrible but justified after those moments, as I am a super etiquette stickler. I am sure I will never live down my RSVP behavior with my parents or husband, but they still love me and that is all that matters." — Michiel
"One of my bridesmaids and I were seeing the same seamstress to alter my wedding dress and her bridesmaid's dress. During one of my fittings, I happened to spot my bridesmaid's dress hung on a rack, with pins hiking up the hem to booty-showing heights. I told the seam stress she could not do those alterations, then called my friend and absolutely lost it. I told her if she wanted to look like she was headed to a club, she couldn't be in my wedding. Almost as soon as I hung up the phone, I was dialing her number so that I could apologize." — Kelly
