We all have a good laugh or shake our heads when talking about “Bridezillas,” but what actually becomes of the people who get mixed up with these folks?
Thousands of insightful tidbits came in.
Here are some of the “best”…
1. That’s cold.
I didn’t marry the Bridezilla, but I had coordinated her wedding.
We had a death in the family (6-month-old baby) a few days prior to the wedding. I called the bride and told her the situation, and said that my assistant would be stepping in for me so that I could attend the funeral.
She told me to send my assistant to the funeral and that I had better be at her wedding. I told her I would be sending her a refund and that no one would be coming to her wedding.
The groom ended up leaving her after this whole thing went down, suffice to say he really dodged a bullet there.
2. Know when to walk away.
Got into a huge fight about broccoli on the honeymoon, all my fault of course.
I knew then it was a mistake, toughed it out for two more years of abuse before I left.
So glad I did.
She stabbed me in the thigh during the meal at our wedding.
Still in prison.
4. The groomzilla.
I married a groomzilla. Bent over backwards to make the wedding add magical as he wanted. I would have been happy in someone’s backyard with a potluck.
He admitted in couples counseling 7 years later that he never really wanted to marry ME so much as he wanted a huge show and party. Everyone liked and approved of me so he wanted them all to see he was making a good choice and be envious. He wanted them to be proud of him.
We used up most of the money I got from a car accident settlement. Could have put in a down payment in a small house.
He asked for divorce in 2020.
5. When the bill comes due…
She left me three months later.
After the wedding and vacation was over I told her we need to pay the debt we just accumulated. She said she didn’t have much on her credit card and could pay it off in a couple of months if I picked up some of her bills. I agreed and three months later she had her credit card paid off she told me she wanted a divorce.
We had a budget for the wedding and should have had no debt at the end but in the last few weeks before the wedding she suddenly had to spend a ton of money on wedding sh*t I had never even heard of before. And when I say she spent a ton of money it came out of my pocket.
6. Losing it.
My buddy married a bridezilla.
She was a bridezilla long before the wedding, and they had dated for about 7 years.
I have no idea how they are doing. I just kind of stopped talking to him a few years after she claimed i ruined his birthday by remaining sober.
I had driven 5 hours to be at his birthday.
7. “Best decision of my life.”
Married for seven years before I bailed, best decision of my life.
Got married again 5 years later to a girl that just wanted a justice of the peace wedding, second best decision of my life.
Cheated whole time, left for an alcoholic guy who had more money.
9. I wanna know what love is.
Divorce after 2 years, she moved her stuff out while I was at work. I cried and then when I got remarried to someone new, I realized what real love was.
Also, my ex sh*t herself on 5 separate occasions when she was black out drunk because she was an alcoholic. So I don’t miss that either.
My brother’s fiancé went off on my mom in front of me and my sister when he was 45 minutes late to the rehearsal due to his best man’s car tire blowing out. “Where is your *sshole of a son?!!?” Dude should have never showed up for the wedding.
Not only a bridezilla, but a total utter sociopath. Her life was completely fabricated and her parents (who didn’t show up for the wedding) called my mom to tell her the truth about it the day after. She had a rap sheet a mile long and a prison record. But my brother, who just wanted to believe that people can change, stuck it out for 7 years.
Don’t do that. Don’t ever ever do that.
11. Sticking it out.
My buddy married a bridezilla. They are still together 10 years later.
She posts on instagram about their supposedly-perfect marriage, but have been separated twice (I’m not sure how many of her friends know).
He’s an alcoholic now.
12. It’s just too much, man.
I married a bridezilla.
He is a lovely sweet thoughtful man but boy did he lose it surrounding the wedding. I could have been married with about three special people there.
He needed 200+. As far as I was concerned we could eat off paper plates and napkins and have a big bon fire to burn them afterwards. He need personalized moist towelettes.
You get the point.
He is a lovely person and I love him dearly but I will never marry him again.
13. COSTUME changes?
Married a groomzilla.
We are talking costume changes between wedding and reception, yelling at the wedding planner, drag-out-all-night fights about whether we can add fruit kabobs so people would maybe get enough to eat, all that.
There was zero compromise; he made a lot of promises for things I had been wanting after the wedding and they never materialized, like a beach vacation and such.
Turns out, no compromise at the wedding meant no compromise anywhere else, so I left him after four years of marriage.
Best decision ever!!!
Whatever you do, don’t conduct nuclear experiments at a Crate and Barrel. That’s how you get city-destroying sized Bridezillas, and nobody wants that.
