Someone please help me! My cable company just got the WE channel and they're having a Bridezilla marathon! I've never seen the show before and I'm sucked in and can't get out! These women are horrible, as are their mothers, grooms, friends...... OMG!

Is it just for the cameras?

What's the worst you've ever seen in person (or done yourself)???

I don't think so...I haven't seen that show but I have seen a few episodes of "Say Yes To The Dress" and some of THOSE people... :yikes

I just scanned through my cable channels and I don't think I have WE, so I guess I'm safe from the Bridezillas!


Closest story:
Just out of High School I was a cashier at a family owned independent grocery store. I had a very young boy come in and buy a single candy bar through my check-out stand. I distinctly remember it because the little boy paid with a $20 bill and I thought that was an awful lot of money to let such a little boy have to purchase a candybar. I remember his serious and solemn eyes as he showed me his candy bar and then held the $20 bill up to me. I am certain he did not know how much money he actually had.
Anyhow, I rang up his purchase and handed him his receipt and change from the $20, which was probably $19.45 and he left my notice. I do not remember if I gave him a small brown bag, or not. A short time later a man came into the store with that little boy, complaining to the owner about how his son was not given correct change. Wing came to speak with me and I told him what I remembered about the purchase. I had not left for a break or bathroom trip between the times the child made his purchase and when he returned with the adult man. I offered to Wing that he had my permission to search my pockets and handbag. Wing declined and told the man at the end of my shift (store's closing) he would count my register and if any amount of money nearing $20 was found to be extra, he would call the man.
The man was NOT happy, certain it was a scam and we would never come clean about an extra $20, but I don't think he pursued it any further.

In retrospect; perhaps I should have offered to shut down my register and count it right then/there to show I had no extra monies in it. Though I am sure the man would have just told himself I had pocketed it or hid it somewhere.

Oh trust me the shows are true!!!!

I really had no say so in my wedding so I just ended up really not caring that much by the time it happend. I think the only thing I picked out was my dress and the cake. My stepmom basicly planned everything and went with what she wanted and told me what was going to be what. The only thing I really freaked out over was my dress (everyone kept pushing dresses on me that I didnt like) and the weather since it was outside.

When people tell you that you never remeber everything they arent lying!!! I barley remeber any of it since I was too tired by the time it was over. Looking back on it there are alot of changes I would have made to my wedding and I would have had everything done my way.

I don't get WE, but have you seen the show Say Yes To The Dress? I think it's on A&E. They show everything going on at Kleinfeld, the famous bridal gown store in Manhattan. It's absolutely unbelievable how much stress and emotion goes into finding the "perfect" bridal gown. It just reaffirms to me that I did the right thing by getting married in jeans in Key West. :D

I had a friend who had been trying to get pregnant for 10 years and it finally happened. Her sister was getting married at the time my friend would be about 7 months along. When my friend told her sister she was pregnant the response was "Congrats, too bad you won't be able to be in the wedding now. I wouldn't want you to trip and fall walking down the aisle"

It came out later that she also didn't want "her big belly ruining the pictures" or "taking the attention off of me". Bridezilla isn't the word for it, it's another one that starts with "B".

I confess...........I am a Bridezilla addict. I tape the shows then watch them when hubby is away. Watching the show is like watching an accident - you can't take your eyes away. I wouldn't be surprised if the producers "urged" the brides-to-be to act extra witchy for the cameras for the ratings. Some of those women are UNBELIEVABLE!!

They already know they're going to be on Bridezilla - do they call up and offer to be on the show because they KNOW they're going to be evil? I don't understand any man who would let a woman treat them like these witches do. :? Some of them are just over the top horrible! But you're right, you have to watch it until the awful conclusion....

I think the husbands just go along with what they want so they dont get yelled at even more. There was one a couple yrs ago that the husband called offf the wedding till she got her attitude under control the wedding ended up happening a year later :D
