  • I was not. I was a wee thing, only 19 and just pregnant with my oldest (but did not know it). In my wedding pictures I look so contrite and overwhelmed lol.

  • I was never an actual bride (court house), but I cringe at them. I understand planning a wedding can be stressful, but that is not an all access pass to be a raging bitch.

  • Not really. I told my bridesmaids to go pick out something that was blue and matched, and beyond that I didn't care. I did have one bad spot, but it wasn't really my fault. My maid of honor is a seamstress, so her gift to me was my dress alterations. She had to add a quarter inch panel on each side to make it fit, and spent hours trying to match the lace exactly. One week later at the wedding I'd apparently lost another 5 lbs and the dress was too big. She had to shorten it on the fly in the room where we got ready, and kept threatening to iron me with the iron. It wasn't intentional, it was just stress.

  • There was a marathon leading up to the first marriage counseling episode.

    I have never been a bridezilla. Once, I didn't even realize the JP had started the ceremony. LOL

  • No, I was not. I had lived through my sister as Bridezilla and saw how ridiculous she was.

  • Hmmmmmm....honestly it depends on who you ask. IMO, no. However, I did get so frustrated & over-whelmed by the whole wedding planning process that I cancelled all my existing plans. And, my ex husband & I ended up having a planned "weddingmoon"/destination wedding in Greece.

  • I shot a wedding once where I got in the middle of a cat fight between the bride and her sister.
    Literally, claws out, going to cause permanent damage.

    I can't be the only one who has seen these people IRL.
    Anyone?
