Once a big diamond is securely on her finger, the bride-in-waiting runs a gamut of emotions, some of them simply aren't pretty. Let's look at a few common bridal emotions and characteristics.
The bridal moment is illustrated in "Something Borrowed", starring Kate Hudson and Collin Egglesfield, Tom Cruise lookalike. During the requisite trying on of wedding dresses, Kate breaks out into tears.
The sales assistant exclaims, "She's having a bridal moment!"
Kate explains that she wants to cry on The Day and is trying out different mascaras, looking for a brand that doesn't "run".
The bridal moment is defined as an emotional incident that occurs during the wedding planning, which causes her to break out into tears. Evidently this moment happens to brides everywhere
During the months preceding the event, the engaged couple doesn't see eye-to-eye on many details. Think men-from-Mars and women-from-Venus, made manifest, in living color.
In fact, the couple can struggle to remember why they loved each other in the first place as they discuss, cuss and feel inundated with 24/7 planning. At a point, the bride will succumb to an emotional tirade, called bridal mania, where she maligns the "poor" groom about anything, everything and a whole lot of nothing. (Think maniac!)
Bride brain is defined as complete ignorance of anything outside the wedding sphere. Anyone experienced with "brides" will know to tread lightly and to only introduce conversations relative to: finding the perfect wedding gown, perfect flavors of wedding cakes, color of bridesmaid's dresses, bridal showers and etc.
When overcome by bride brain, the bride-to-be becomes temporarily anorexic, in order to fit into the perfect wedding dress, without looking like a marshmallow.
Bride candy is the hunk that magically manifests at her bachelorette party. Typically a Chippendale cliché male exotic stripper honors the bride-to-be with a personal lap dance and sloppy kisses.
Be warned: The engaged gal is subject to exhibit a bridal moment, when she realizes that after the wedding ceremony, bride candy will be off-limits forever.
If you watched the reality series, "Bridezilla", you already have an image of the bullying bridezilla in your mind. The term derived from bride + Godzilla = bridezilla.
The bride, in this instance, becomes totally unrecognizable. She is: inconsiderate, angry, attention-seeking, the perfectionist's perfectionist, neglectful. A bridezilla firmly believes: the world revolves around her and Her Day.
Back with another h5
I love your great description and I love the whole wedding shabang!
This is such an accurate list. No matter if there is a small wedding or a large wedding planned, the bride always gets stressed out. I remember my wedding back over 27 years ago, and there are so many different things to think about and to plan. You want your day perfect and you get stressed out thinking about all the what ifs. H5 list.
Brides can get so stressed out. My son has a side business doing wedding videography. He has a lot of interesting bride stories.
I think your list is right on for brides. Thank you for the smiles and the reality check too.
