Is there any way to avoid the Bridezilla Syndrome?

I've spent the Labor Day holiday watching some of the Bridezilla episodes on TV. Where do they find these women (and their clueless grooms and horrible families)? And how do they know they're going to be ballistic bride-monsters from the beginning?

Surely, it's a set-up deal, like professional wrestling. A free honeymoon for as much drama and pain as you can inflict in the run-up and in the midst of the wedding, right? Is that the deal? Is a free honeymoon worth it?

These perfectly horrible women behave in the most outrageous way. Why anyone agrees to marry them or attend the weddings after they've put them through the wringer is completely beyond me.

Perhaps I'm speaking too soon, but I cannot imagine Kate pulling the stunts that the bridezillas do. (And, Darlin', you'd better not make me eat those words!) A little wedding stress is understandable, and tempers might flare in the heat of battle, but full-blown nostril-flaring, ear-steaming, face-slappin' anger is way out of bounds.

Here are the rules:
  • Rule No. 1 should always be the Golden one - Do unto others. Be nice.
  • Rule No. 2: This too shall pass. Most obstacles can be gotten over, under, around, or through, so chill.
  • Rule No. 3: No matter what the wedding books try to tell you, you ain't a princess, nor Queen of the World. This is a ceremony and celebration of the marriage of two people, surrounded by people who love and care for them. Act accordingly.
So, I guess the way to avoid the Bridezilla Syndrome is to under no circumstances sign on with a television production company to act shameless for the sake of a free trip to Jamaica.

End of lecture.

  • Its okay. We don't wanna go to Jamaica anyhow. Hmmm . . . if they offered a trip to Greece perhaps. No worries about the birdezilla thing. They're mythical creatures who crawl our from under thier veil once in a blue moon. Don't worry, I'm not one of them. XOXO
