No one wants to earn the title of a bridezilla! But planning a wedding is stressful and exhausting. There are a million and one things to look into. If you’re own wedding planner, while still working your full-time job, it can be understandably overwhelming.
Still, you’d want to retain – if not, strengthen, the relationships you have even after your wedding. To make sure that you don’t lose those friendships of yours, it’s important to keep yourself in check during the wedding planning.
Here are five warning signs that you are turning into a bridezilla!
Warning Signs That You Are Turning Into A Bridezilla #1 – You Throw Your Budget Out Of The Window
Before the wedding planning begun, your fiance and you put together a budget. You discussed what your priorities are. For example, you might want to invest in a professional wedding photographer to capture the important moments of your wedding, or perhaps go for a bespoke wedding gown design to rent. But as you put everything together, you begin to indulge in add-ons that aren’t part of the budget. You’re even thinking of using your emergency savings for your wedding!
That’s a sure warning sign that you are turning into a bridezilla! While a wedding is a special day in your life, life needs to continue after that day. It’s wise that you keep track on where you’re spending your money.
Warning Signs That You Are Turning Into A Bridezilla #2 – You Have Contingency Plans For Every Minute
You want the perfect march-in, with the perfect song cued on time. Because you’ve carefully put together the details for your wedding, you won’t allow room for failure. You even make back up plans for your back up plans…and it doesn’t seem to end.
Not only does this increase your stress levels, it also stresses the people around you. You’re also setting yourself up for disappointment over the smallest hiccups! Instead, take a deep breath and learn to simply enjoy the planning process.
Warning Signs That You Are Turning Into A Bridezilla #3 – You Micromanage Your Vendors
The professional wedding team you’ve hired have been chosen after much consideration. However, as you worry about the fine details of your wedding, you begin to lose faith in your team without much reasons! You micromanage your vendors – and even your bridesmaids. You nag over the details that they’re supposed to look into.
Somehow, nothing they plan seems to sit well with you. This certainly makes it difficult for them to exercise their creativity and suggest novel ideas to you. It also sends the message that you distrust their professionalism!
Warning Signs That You Are Turning Into A Bridezilla #4 – You Are Irritable
You can’t talk about the wedding budget without getting into a full-blown fight with your fiance. And you stress all night about the table cloth design – ivory lace or white lace? When stresses are high, you tend to get angry and irritable. The slightest thing can tick you off! That can cause tensions in your relationships. Furthermore, a wedding does consists of many details and that amount of detailed planning can push you to your limit.
Warning Signs That You Are Turning Into A Bridezilla #5 – Your Wedding Is More Important Than Your Relationship
When was the last time you went on a date with your partner? Or the last dinner conversation you had that was about your lives apart from the wedding? Sometimes, the logistics of wedding planning can get in the way of cultivating your relationship. A wedding is a celebration for the marriage that happens after that big day! Don’t compromise on the depth of your relationship, just so that you can get your dream wedding.
Instead, planning a wedding can be a wonderful opportunity for you and your fiance to talk about your priorities, spending habits and practise making decisions together! All of which are important skills for a strong marriage. To keep yourself in check, be honest with yourself and see if you’re guilty of any of these warning signs that you are turning into a bridezilla!
