Dear Ms Bridezilla . . ..

We've all had them. Some are worse then others. Some are just laughable. Others are truly horrid.
And some things just need to be said -

Dear Ms Bridezilla,
I knew at our first meeting that this relationship would be, well, unfortunate.

It came through in the "I'm the most important one in the room" attitude.
It was reinforced with the disappointment in your perfect dress. And then the insistence in needing multiple fittings because of flaws you kept remember seeing.

I am honestly very sorry that you are so unhappy. I'm sorry I can't find padded bra inserts that fit you to perfection. I'm sorry that your dress is actually made of fabric and not plastic, so it wouldn't have the natural folds and creases that allow it to move with you. I'm sorry that I couldn't find that perfect place on your dress that allowed it to be so tight that it showed your lovely figure off , yet still allowed you to walk and sit. I'm sorry that the wide seam allowances on your gorgeous gown felt too thick against your skin. I'm sorry I couldn't make the sash fit tighter around your waist then your dress is. I'm sorry I can't move all the other clients that are on my to-do list, to the back burner so as to get your dress done first.

But mostly, dear Ms Bridezilla, I am sorry for you. I am sorry you can't see your own beauty while in the dress. I'm sorry that you can't see how perfectly it frames you. I'm sorry that you can't see the generosity of the gifts given to you in free jewelry, free veil, free alterations. I'm sorry you are so obsessed with percieved perfection that you can't see true beauty.

But mostly, I am sorry for you that the most important thing about your wedding seems to be the dress. It's just my opinion, but I believe that most important thing should be the fact that you are beginning a new life together with the man you love and plan to spend the rest of your live with.

For your sake, and the sake of your fiance, I hope with all my heart that your bridezilla-ness is just bridal nerves, and not a true indication of your spirit and personality.


  1. I hope Bridezilla sees this as a gift but then maybe not? Well done.

  2. Well said, Candice. Been there done that. Your spirit is refreshing!
