16. Couple is in jewelry store. Bride picks out a $20,000 ring. Fiance says very sweetly, "Honey, I can't really afford that." Bride says, "I'm not worth $20,000? Then I won't marry you!" and she storms out of the jewelry store.

She has a guest list that includes everyone and anyone that she ever meet and since mom & dad are footing the bill, they say NO to her & she has a crying fit because she wants to have a 500 person reception.

She also expect an over the top brida shower & bach party weekend. Anyone in the WP are not allowed to say no these events esp the bach party weekend.

This is fun, and kind of scary because you know there's brides out there that are like this!

I got one:

She tells all of her family and friends her brother is being mean for getting married a few weeks after her even though he's been engaged longer and he and his fiance found out that she (brother's fiance) might have cancer, so they moved their date up 6 months so she can get on his insurance.

LOL! You are right, it is fun and kind of scary. I'm sure there is a "little bridezilla" in us all! The reason I thought of this is because I was a vendor at a big bridal show on Sunday and I spent a lot of time watching brides come and go and while most of them were very kind and sweet, there were some that I could just tell were Bridezillas Waiting To Happen! Especially the ones who had their Mothers and all their bridesmaids in tow, barking orders to them. It was funny, because MOH's would stop at my booth and pick up information about bridal counseling and say "She is going to need this!" It was pretty funny.

One groom came up to my booth and asked me what "The Bride Whisperer" did, and when I told him he said, "Oh, my fiance needs this, but I better get back to her because if I am gone from her for two long then I will get in trouble."

So, that is where the idea came from. Like I said, most of the brides were wonderful. But a Bridezilla can be easy to spot if you know what to look for! Ha!

19. The Bridezilla has her FH on a leash. A very short leash.

A bridezilla will ask for your opinion, but threaten to kick you out of the wedding if your opinion differs from hers.

Wow Francie, that's funny! It'd be fun to people watch at a bridal expo! Sadly the bridezilla example I posted actually happened.

Okay back to funnier ones... hmmmm.... how about she registers at 5 different stores and then has her bridesmaids email her registry info to people not even invited to the wedding!

They come on bridal message boards to write barley coherent messages, brining up comments made ages and ages ago, that they perceived to be mean because it was not what they wanted to hear. They also think that people are trying to ruining their happiness by having the nerve to give advice on marriage from the perspective of a person who is well..... married.

Gasp! The nerve! Giving relevant advice to a bride, how dare these married people! lol! Some thread titles should really be "Only post if you agree with me, if not, don't bother!"

Ooh I got another one, how about she's a bridezilla if she demands her guests to dress in her wedding colors and sends them swatches just to make sure they match exactly.

Say were 30 or so - A bridezilla is someone who insists on getting married in a particular month even though it means her FH will have to go without medical insurance for several months until he graduates school.
