When you proposed, she was so happy and full of love and excitement…then she started planning the wedding. The girl who once was sweet and calm, suddenly became grumpy and obsessed about all her wedding details. There is a name for that my friend: A bridezilla! Unless you want to end up leaving her at the altar, stick to the below pieces of advice.

Help her with the Planning
If you want to have a really angry bride, don’t show any interest on the wedding. Otherwise, try to get as involved as possible. Take her look at the locations, give your opinion regarding decoration or do some research to choose a theme: she will be delighted. In addition, ensure you make her understand she is not alone at this, you will support her through the whole process. Don’t forget that leaving her alone will make everything worse and you will be the main affected.
Spoil her Every Now and Then
Try to keep your bridezilla as relaxed as possible. How? Well, there are a couple techniques which never fail:
- Buy her an emergency survival kit. You will not only fulfill one of her needs, but you will demonstrate how caring and loving you are. This one doesn’t fail.
- Book a spa session for you two. You will both relax and enjoy a nice moment together. If you want to save money, try to do the massage yourself. We bet she will think it is really romantic and will appreciate it.
- Pick one day of the week and name it the “weddingless day.” None of you will be allowed to talk about the wedding during that day and in exchange, you will let her choose an activity for that day.
Don’t Allow Tantrums
Yes! you have to support, love, help her and be patient; however, that doesn’t mean you must let her be a bridezilla. As soon as she starts yelling, doing tantrums and disrespecting you: stop her. You don’t have to put up with that. Let her know you will gladly comfort her and listen to her; but, whenever she calms down. Don’t let her turn you into a groomzilla.
Most likely, you will be the one with the feet on the ground. Therefore, make sure you help her stay in the real world. If you remember to show her how much you love her and at the same time draw the respect line, you will definitely pacify your bridezilla.
