Default Bridezilla! Lets hear your stories

My son is getting married this weekend. His bride to be has turned into a real monster. She was friends was my sons best friend sister and has essentially turned everyone against going to the wedding. I get in town on Friday, she is going to be really disappointed in her new father in-law if she pulls that "my day" crap on me..

Here is the fun part, the Rehearsal Dinner (my tab) is going to have 32 people at it.!

Anyone have any have any good stories?

No, but don't refuse to come out for the father/daughter dance like my dumb ass dad did...

Weddings are stressful and the women folk freak out, she'll probably get better after....

She was friends wasith my son's best friend's sister

If you're going to throw stones at your future daughter in-law online, Donald, then at least do it with proper spelling and punctuation...

Heard from Bridezilla - "Ben's dad is coming on Friday, I hope he wears shoes"...

Yeah... a large part of my business is with brides, and their mothers... all I say is: You can tell A LOT about a person when they are planning their wedding.

The probability of a divorce is proportional to the money spent on the wedding.

I don't need to worry about that part, yet. My daughter is 18 and in the wedding. She told me not to worry, she will elope and just ask for the cash prize.

32 for the rehearsal dinner doesn't sound crazy low. You got the bridesmaids, groomsmen and their guest. 24 there is about standard. Bride and groom and their parents gets you to 30. If the bride and groom each have one sibling not married or dating anyone you have 32. You might expect a few more if there are grandparents and close aunts and uncles.

Yep, you caught me not proofing while posting after a very frustrating conversation. Good on you, feel free to correct the rest of my posts.

Oh, I meant the new daughter-in-law/father-in-law dance at the reception...

Your daughter's a smart girl.

She is very smart, 18 years old and a Freshman at FAU. Best of all she has my sarcasm. She said the she hopes her brothers next wife has her sh*t together and is able to spell his name correctly on the invitation. (True story, his name was spelled wrong and we received the invitations 2 weeks ago).

My parent's neighbor's daughter eloped. She got married at the Viceroy in St. Lucia. It probably didn't cost her dad more than $300K. Just tuck that away for safe keeping.

When my wife and I got married, we were both "established". I owned my own home, we had both been working for several years etc, so for the most part we paid for more than half the wedding ourselves. The rest was "gift" money from our parents. My wife was great, buying a moderate dress (NOT posting a pic), hiring students to do the flowers/centerpieces (kind of like using dental hygienist students), etc. We did drop a good chunk of cash on a great band though that got everyone onto the dance floor.

Friend of mine though had over 300 people at her wedding, micromanaged EVERY detail (and I mean EVERY detail... personally checking every centerpiece etc), was requiring the groomsmen to wear real bow ties (not one of us knew how to tie a real bow tie), etc. She ended up crying for most of her reception because she wasn't able to get around to see everyone at the reception, got mad because the rose petals she paid $100 for to have sprinkled on the cake were thrown away... They are still married though.

I wish I could throw that kind of cake around. She will have to settle for 10% of that...

Ask my kids what they are entitled to. They have heard it long enough that their answer is automatic.
