Don't Be A Bridezilla!

Wedding Planner Nora Sheils (nee' Totonchy) joined us with some simple ways to avoid becoming a bridezilla!

  • Plan ahead and plan well
  • Maintain perspective
  • Stick to your budget—nothing will stress you out more than blowing the bank
  • Do not stress over the bachelor party---if you don’t trust him already you have bigger issues
  • Don’t have unrealistic weight expectations—crash dieting and being hungry will only put you in a bad mood
  • Get a massage and leave the week of the wedding for pampering
  • If something goes wrong, shrug it off and don’t let it ruin your day.  You are probably the only person that notice
  • Confirm all of your vendors prior to the wedding day
  • Get a wedding planner!

Tips for the groom

  • You may not care about the teeny details but you are part of the wedding too.  Pick a few things that are important to you and have an opinion.  Let your fiancé know she’s not in this alone
  • Be a support---planning is stressful so help her relax.  Cook her dinner, run a few errands
  • Be a buffer to your parents. 
  • Manage your men—make sure they are measured for their tuxes on time and they know where to be and when
  • Get sentimental—on the day of your wedding send your bride a sweet card and gift or maybe later at the reception have the videographer tape a special message to her.  She will see it and she will appreciate it.
