Bridezilla Signs And Symptoms
1. You’re snapping at everyone: You know you’ve gone full bride ZILLA when you snap at your poor elderly grandma. The severity of this symptom can become so great you don’t even realize you’re doing it.
2. You’re trying to control everything: It’s normal for brides to seek perfection, but what’s not normal is driving your entire wedding party crazy. If you sound like a drill sergeant, you’ve gone too far.
3. You’re at a 10, a very loud 10: Your table runner just came in and it’s eggshell instead of cream. If you’re on the phone screaming, you’ve caught the bug! Your vendors are much more likely to go above and beyond if you show them respect.
4. People Don’t Want to Be Around You: Don’t let wedding planning poison your relationships with your soon to be hubby, friends and loved ones. While your wedding day is fleeting, these relationships will follow you forever.
5 Remedies To Stop Being A Bridezilla
1. MANTRA AND MEDITATE
Create a personal mantra to anchor you when the seas get rough. Create your own one line mantra of peace, love and tranquility or try “This is only a paper tiger”, developed specifically for managing stress, boosting self confidence, and handling the anxiety that comes along with wedding planning.
Incorporate simple guided meditations with apps like Headspace and 10% Happier, created to help you stay zen even when you’re in meltdown mode. We love these apps because they offer short meditations that only take you a few minutes. Studies suggest that even five minutes of meditation can lower blood pressure and help relieve anxiety!
