How to Not Become a “Bridezilla”

Bridezilla is a term for intolerably demanding bridal condition. To realize her dream wedding, this bride has very out-of-control behavior, and for people around her, she’s a nightmare.

We understand how stressful it is to prepare your big day with all the details and roller coaster of emotions. Not to mention the money you’re spending, the memories you’re making, and the total look you’ve been dreaming since what, 3rd grade? Of course you want every detail to be perfect, but do you really need to throw tantrums every time? Not becoming a bridezilla is a choice and here’s some tips to be more “bride” less “zilla”.

Focus on life after the wedding

Wedding does bring excitement and joy but you need to get yourself together to become someone’s wife. So instead of sweating small stuff in your wedding planning, try focus on planning a marriage.

Enjoy the process

Preparing your big day can be very stressful but also can be very fun. There are so many things do with your family and friends in preparing your wedding, and those moments are priceless so you might want to enjoy each moment.

It’s okay to ask for help

Even for a DIY wedding, you cannot do it all by yourself. It’s okay to ask for help, your family and friends are there to help you. And you know you can always hire a wedding planner, right? It’s your wedding, get support!

It’s not all about you

Don’t lose it, girl. Don’t forget the groom, because it’s not all about you. You can tell your groom what you expect of him in this wedding planning thing. Getting help from your groom can come as a great relief.

Take time off

You need to step away from the stressful wedding planning by spending time with your best friends, your family, your fiancé, or even yourself, without bringing up the wedding topic. Be sure to take the time off and do something completely unrelated to the wedding.

Accept limitations

You’ll decide on so many things, venues, invitations, guest list, the décor, the dress, the playlist, and a lot more. But in the end, you have to be prepared to accept whatever may come in your wedding. There’s no such thing as perfection in wedding, all you need is to accept and let go.
