Bitch Bride Tacky Bride

I hate that I am automatically in the same category as all other brides. I may be emotional an emotional basketcase of a bride but then I’m like that always, it just goes up a few notches when I feel pressure. I’ve never gone off on anyone, I’ve just cried a few times.

It makes me sick to my stomach when I watch the wedding shows where brides whine, cry and demand everything under the sun. How many times can they say “it’s MY day” or “it’s all about me.” Am I insane or abnormal that I believe the wedding should not only be about the bride AND the groom but also family and friends. Granted, the event is technically the bride and groom’s and it’s centered around them but it’s also an event for everyone to have fun at.

I was watching Rich Bride Poor Bride and part of me wanted to scream at the television the entire time. This girl (young and clueless) was trying to have this princess/royal wedding and didn’t care at all about what her groom wanted. Granted he wanted a wrestling wedding but you know, you sit down and discuss ideas and try to find a way to incorporate both of you into it. She actually spoke the words at one point regarding the contracts she was signing behind his back “you get to sign the marriage license, that’s it.” :rolleyes:

She also went way over her budget because of things like an electric harpist and a limo bus (on top of the limo in the package). She kept signing contracts assuming that someone would pay for it.

To make matters worse, all the things she wanted were SO tacky. Seriously. She wanted a 6 tier cake with stairs/bridges on both sides, 6 miniatures bridesmaids, 6 miniature groomsmen and a fountain. No, I’m not kidding. Her wedding planner thankfully convinced her out of the miniatures.

Here is how I see it, granted I’ve never met one of these brides in person thankfully. If you have this outragous image of a wedding in your head and the groom doesn’t matter, you are doing it for the wrong reasons. If your wedding is all about getting exactly what you want at any cost then you are doing it for the wrong reasons. I’ll be honestly shocked if their marriage lasts longer than 3 years. Oh and he’s obviously a pussy.

    6 Layer cake with stairs and fountain? I was in a wedding that had one of those. It was 1981. I’ve been to and been in plenty of wedding since, and haven’t seen another one because they’re just sooooooo tacky.

    Good grief, someone needs to smack that bitch.
    If you’re going to get married, go down to city hall. No biggie. Then have a party and invite everyone BYOB after. That or run away to Vegas and get married by Elvis. You know you wanna.

    I think you are absolutely right and I think you are by no means a bride like that! Good grief! Holy cow! If that were the case, Erik would be up shit creek.

    Glad he’s not! :-)

    Crystal – That’s exactly it, I kept thinking 80′s :twitchy:

    Gwen – Totally. The wedding should be a party, not an exhibit.

    Dutchy – I call myself the “anti-bride” because while I want my own style and ideas and am a little anal about some things this is really just a big party.

    The Sunday before the wedding, when you are on my radio show, you are going to be a complete mess, aren’t you? :)

    You have no idea. If only you knew how I was before my prom, that was nothing. Probably a mixture of laughing, crying and swearing, I’m just guessing.

    Some of the brides on those shows amaze me, and not in a good way. Beyond the attitudes and the tacky shit, if I were the grooms, I’d run in the other direction.

    I told my mom the other week, that (god willing) I ever get married, it’s going to be the simplest, laid back wedding ever…

    I want the fairy tale, but I’m not willing to do the work for it… you should be proud of the work you’ve done!
