As a bride, I hated nothing more than being called a "Bridezilla" because I was making conscious choices with my purchases. (i.e. going over contracts with a fine tooth comb, spending hours picking out paper for the prefect invitations, or changing my flowers with my favorite florist at least 3 times) Never once did I yell, scream, have bulging eyes or throw champagne at my wedding planner. I think people just use the term "Bridezilla" in the wrong fashion some times. The there are times when a bride appropriately deserves it. I have yet to meet one, but have heard some horror stories lately!!
Webster's Definition: Bridezilla\ bride-zil-a n 1 Horrific, bulging-eyed bride prone to screaming spells and spontaneous fits of hysterical rage. Bridezillas are known to drop blows over seating charts, get bug-eyed at the mere mention of carnations and view hurling champagne at their wedding planners as a form of hazing.
Bridezilla.com's Definition: Bridezilla\bride-zil-a n 1 Exceptionally attractive, confident women who know what they want and can't be bothered to sugar coat because they are obviously on 100 calorie- a- day microbiotic diets and can't even sneak a pack of Splenda if their life depends on it. Bridezillas are both blessed and cursed with a higher vision of perfection than most mediocre, David's Bridal wearing, Gerber daisy carrying mortals and have no choice but to impart this vision exactly to the masses. It is this motive that drives them to demand nothing less than excellence from their staff-err, wedding party.
In short, some people say bridezillas are bat-crazy man-hating Stepford brides. We say potato, potahto. www.Bridezilla.com
