Snarky Brides

Me, as a bride

Adam was just going through his fb messages and found old messages from before we got married between us. I was apparently SUPER pissed about this, I got a good laugh out of it.

"we didnt receive that little fucker who calls himself a friend's rsvp. I said if we didnt I would lay into him for what a shiit head he has been/is being...
give him one last warning to get his fucking rsvp in or i will message him and it wont be pretty, and he will be uninvited and if he shows up he will be escorted out.
i am not impressed by his bullshit.
(im not mad at you, im mad at him)"

I was clearly TOTAL RATIONAL and not a bridezilla at all when I got married lol

If I ever try to say otherwise, please correct me.

Re: Me, as a bride

  • Nice.

    I had a bridezilla moment when I was told someone was bringing their almost stepkid to the wedding, who was not invited. I about lost my shiit on my dad telling him to talk to this person because their kid was not invited for a reason. And then she ended up not coming anyway.
  • Id kinda love to see sesh lose her shiit
  • It doesn't happen often, nebb, but when it does, it's not pretty. I'm not even going to post where what I said on the off-chance it gets back to anyone. Lets just say it was a very 1-sided phone conversation.
  • We all know I wasn't a sane and rational bride.

    I was sort of hoping this would be a Nebb wedding photo.  But i like this too!

  • No real bridezilla moments for me, which is surprising because my family can be really overbearing, but I did have a complete breakdown because H didn't like the bouquet alternatives I made. I didn't want flowers, so I made these bouquets out of Christmas ornaments. I'm not crafty at all, but I was all about doing it myself. After I finished five of them, I asked H what he thought, and he said he didn't like them. I burst out crying. 

    Honestly, they were really ugly and I didn't like the idea to begin with. My mom got me the ornaments and I wanted to use them, but the entire thing was butt ugly. H told me to stop listening to my family's idea and do what I liked. I think what we ended up with was perfect.

    <div>Thanks! I made them for the bridesmaids, too. I wasn't going to do anything for the bridesmaids, but my mom kept gong on and on about what to do with her hands (she was my MOH). It was the only thing I butted heads with her on. I tried reminding her that everyone was going to be looking at me, but I compromised and gave them the same thing as the flower girls. I wasn't even going to have flowers, but H wanted me to have them. I honestly didn't care, at that point I just wanted to get married!</div>

    He freaked the eff out when his aunt called his mom to ask if his cousin's new BF could come to the wedding. He goes, "MOM, the invitation LISTED THE PEOPLE INVITED. WTF. NO. NOOOOO. WE'RE PAYING A LOT FOR THIS, WHAT THE HELL! THAT'S SO RUDE." She was doing the.readings in.our Mass and one more person was NBD, so we added him. He ended uo being totally awesome, too. Another time he pulled a IT's my wedding tooooo!" on me when.i made some minor decision. His friend hinted that.he wanted to come to the.wedding and when we were doing invitations, I asked N if we were inviting him or not. N's reply was "If he's lucky." He was a raging bitch, lol.
  • SEWF, that is adorable.

    I really think H was expecting me to freak out about everything, so I was so proud of myself for being so calm through all the planning.  Until about ten days before the wedding, I was typing up our program, and didn't know how to spell H's grandfather's name. I flipped out--I called H's phone about 15 times and texted him I don't even know how many times.  I was sobbing and so angry at him because I couldn't get a hold of him (he was at work, so I don't know what I was expecting).  It wasn't really even an emergency, I was just being ridiculous. 

    That I freak out about, but an extra 3 people added on the day before the wedding?  Totally took it in stride. Of course, I was drinking a pitcher of mimosas when I got that news.

  • I seriously hope that if any of us freak out doing wedding planning it is FI. It would be awesome because he is so passive and calm. I doubt it will happen. I don't think I will be ZOMG bridezilla but I know I will be annoyed and peeved by many people and their opinions.

  • I don't think H had any freakout moments. He basically just said to let him know what he needed to wear and what time the ceremony was. He offered input on the menu and songs, but only when asked.

    His biggest concern was taking a week off work for the HM, so I did get to hear a lot about how hard it was getting the yards caught up, but I hear that regardless so it doesn't count.
  • I think the only asshole moment I had was the morning of the wedding. Our venue was about 45 mins away so a couple of my BM's that lived here road with me. They are both notoriously late and I said I am leaving at X time, if you aren't here I'm leaving. We had to get to our hair appts and if we weren't there on time they could drop some of our appts. One of them called at the exact time I said we were leaving and said she was only 5 mins from my house and I told her "well you know how to get there right? I'm not fucking around today, no one is going to stress me out today" and I left. She really wanted to ride with me so her and her H wouldn't have both cars there and both have to not drink so they could drive home. She was totally cool about it, but I felt like shiit so we paid for a hotel room so they could both booze it up at the reception.

  • I was really hoping for Nebb bridal pictures, too.  I've been pretty "meh" so far just because I stress about everything in the world and told myself I would about this.  Today I called the bridal store where the BMs were supposed to order their dresses, and hold the order til they all came in.  (My mom wanted this so they'd be the same dye lot.  I thought it was stupid) Anyways I guess one ordered hers from somewhere else and it already came, so none of the dresses were ordered.  The lady said, "we are busy, call back Monday." wtf?  So I complained to FI about it and then went for a hug and totally smacked my eye into his collar bone.  That did it.  I ran up to the bed and cried. hahahaha
  • I was pretty flexible throughout wedding planning, but since we did all our marriage prep through the church here and had to have it sent to the church in CA, there was a lot of stuff thy got lost intranslation. The week before the wedding, I was at the church pretty much every day trying to track shiit down. Finally, the Friday before the big day, there was still some stuff missing and I remember sitting in the lobby of the church, pissed off and frustrated, wolfing down youth ministry fundraiser candy bars. And then the priest was 45 minutes late to the ceremony. I'm a Virgo, my wedding was planned out to the minute. Priests should never be late to Virgo weddings (that's probably the most bizarre statement I've ever uttered, but I'm kinda KUI right now so gimme a break).

  • I was generally pretty laid back, but 2 days before the wedding I was super stressed while working on the guest welcome bags.  My mom decided that we needed to make one for EVERY guest, not just the OOT ones staying in the hotels we had blocked off. We got in a huge fight over it.  Seriously, why do people who live in town and aren't traveling need bottles of water and granola bars?? . 

    I also admit that I cried when I thought my girls weren't throwing me a bachelorette party at all.  H had his party the Thursday before the wedding, while I was stuck at home fighting with my mom about the stupid bags.  Friday morning I broke down and cried about how unfair it was that H got a party while I was stuck dealing with stupid crap.  Turned out my BMs had a surprise lingerie party planned for me the next day before the rehearsal dinner, and my mom let the cat out of the bag when she saw how upset I was.  So I was a brat AND I ruined my surprise.  Not my best moment.

  • N changed his attitude about being involved in each decision once he saw how much work it would be, too, JCB. Then one time he didn't want to do sometging and I totally flipped out. I was like, I'll ducking plan everything and it will be AWESOME and you better tell everyone I did every little tging when they compliment us. I also told him he didn't care about my ering being hideous when we couldn't get it dipped the Monday before the wedding. He said that was my worst. The MUA bitch said she'd never been treated like tgat when she left on the morning of the wedding, but I was wayyyyyy tamer than I could have been. MOH thought I had taken Xanax.

    </div><div>That sucks! And also reminds me...we filled out the paperwork for our priest (who is ordained by the Washington Diocese) to be able to perform our wedding in the Diocese where the wedding was in IN.  We filled it out over a year in advance, because that was when it was given to us.  Less than a month before the wedding, we were told that we had to do it ALL over again because there was a time frame limit on it.  Um, you couldn't have told us that when we first submitted it??  So we had to mail our parents their stuff to fill out (I don't remember what it was though) again, get all the appropriate signatures again, etc etc...ugh.  Our priest from DC was FURIOUS at the priest in IN over it.  H and I weren't too thrilled, either.

  • I don't think I had a single bridezilla moment, thank goodness. I'll admit I did get slightly annoyed for about a minute when one of H's friends booked their wedding a month before ours. I have no idea why, it didn't effect out wedding in any way. There were several overlapping groomsmen, so I though some of the guys might turn down being in our wedding. But they didn't and all was well with the world. I feel a little silly about it, thinking back.

  • I had a huge meltdown the day before our wedding. It had mostly to do with my step mother and partially to do with the fact that my mom was dead and not going to be at my wedding PLUS if my mom had not being dead I wouldn't have had to deal with a step mom. It wasn't pretty. There were lots of tears, some screaming, general hysterics, a lot of stress, no eating for like 24hours (maybe it was more like 48) and a general sense of hatred towards my step mother.  I would only describe it as bridezillaesque because I was going to be a bride the next day, the fight itself was not directly wedding related, my stupid step-mom just decided to let it all come out on the day of our rehearsal dinner. You know, because I wasn't stressed enough as it was. To this day my MOH thinks she did it to be an AW. I like to try to think the best of people so I try not to think that.
  • i flipped my shiit over the bridal shower my MOH planned.  She majorly dropped the ball.  Failed to mail a bunch of invites so only 3 people showed up besides my BM's and mom, didn't have any plans for what we were going to do (games, whatever), and then left without helping to clean up and I later found out she skipped out on the bill and my mom paid it.  I ranted to my then FI about it for days and didn't hardly speak to anyone else.

    Then I was all ready to go out for a bachelorette night and no one ever came.  I called my sister, a BM, and apparently no one told her anything about it.  There were no plans, just wishful thinking that my BM had been feeding me.  So I was all dressed up with no where to go.  It felt like a flashback to when no one came to my 8th birthday.

    I no longer talk to any of them except my sister and if either of the other two BM's (former best friend, step-sister) call me I'll bridezilla on them still.
  • I sorta love hearing these stories!

    Dude.  I would have been majorly upset about this too.  It's not like you're throwing a fit because no one offered to plan you something.  You're upset because something was planned but not followed through on at all.  That's crappy.  It's crappy to say you'll do something and not do it, without talking to the person about it.
