Are you a woman who has aspired to be a bridezilla your entire life? In our quest to be a valuable resource to our readers, today’s blogpost reveals a step by step approach you can use to becoming the bridezilla you’ve always dreamed of being.
1. To begin, remember that this wedding is all about you. Your fianceé, your family, and your friends come second. Your every whim is what counts. Be assertive. Don’t let them get in your way.
A bridezilla should talk about nothing other than her wedding plans
2. Along that line, it is vital that you talk about your wedding. All. The. Time. Be ready to defend your position. For example, let’s say you’re having coffee with a girl friend who just gave birth to her first child. Your self-centered friend just can’t stop cooing over the little attention-grabber. Cut her off at the knees. You might want to say something kind of like this:
“I am appalled at your selfishness, Louise. After all, knowing you, you’re probably going to have a bunch more babies. But I am planning to get married only once. This is my time to talk. So next time we meet, I must insist that you get a baby sitter. That’s the only way I know I’ll have your full attention.”
That’ll put her in her place! Sometimes tough love is necessary with friends!
A bridezilla doesn’t believe in a budget
3. Okay, here’s another key element of achieving your Bridezilla dream: throw your budget out the window. Remember, this is YOUR day. If you don’t splurge for your wedding day, then when will you? Beg, borrow, or steal the money if you have to. You’re worth it. If you want a wedding gown of sumptuous, pale ivory silk taffeta and antique lace, adorned with thousands of pearls and a jaw-dropping 25-foot long train, go for it.
So what if the average cost of a wedding in the US is $35,329 (according to The Knot). If the Bridezilla in you thinks you won’t be happy with a penny less than $100,000, well, tell your father or fiancee’ that’s what overtime is for.
4. Finally, pamper yourself. Need a manicure or a massage? Do it, even if it means cancelling lunch with your fiancee’. After all, he’s going to have you for the rest of his life. You want to look and feel your best for your big day. Don’t let anyone, even him, get in your way.

If you’re not the bridezilla type…
On the other hand, if your view your wedding as being about more than you, in other words, as a celebration to be shared with people you love the most, don’t do any of the above.
You’ll be sensitive to your parents, your friends, and especially your fiancee’, and you’ll dote on your friend’s new born baby. You’ll live within your means and stick to your budget, because you’ll know that entertainment makes the event. And great entertainment as provided by Crestline Entertainment is more than affordable, it’s priceless.
