Who are you calling Bridezilla?

Posted on May 11, 2009 10:09 AM by Erin


Bridezilla is the affectionate term many people use for soon-to-be-brides who temporarily loose their minds and become way too obsessed with their own wedding.  Since becoming engaged in November, I have vowed to not let myself become one of "those".  While I haven't thrown any temper tantrums yet or made my bridal party cry (success!), I have realized how easy it is to get swept up in all the details.

Say, for instance with picking out my wedding favors.  Now working at Lake Champlain Chocolates, this one should have been a no-brainer. Since day one, I've known we were going with the Engraved Gold Ballotin Boxes (which, in my opinion, are our most elegant chocolate favor).  An easy one to cross off my to-do list, right?  Wrong!  Despite my greatest efforts to fight her off, Bridezilla seems to have made a guest appearance.  I've become completely fixated on picking out the perfect pair of truffles to go inside the boxes.  Seeing as our wedding is in the fall, hands down one will be the spiced pumpkin truffle (I highly recommend it...it's a favorite around here).  But I've been torn on what would compliment it best?  While many co-workers have kindly put in their own two cents, obviously that's not enough for this over-achieving bride!  Really, would I be doing proper due diligence if I did not create my very own unofficial LCC Wedding Chocolate Tasting Panel?  Of course not, don't be silly.  Hence the ultra-exclusive tasting group, consisting of myself and customer service guru/cubicle neighbor Jason, was born.  With the mission of creating the perfect wedding favor, every week we try a new chocolate truffle and discuss how well it will go with the spiced pumpkin.  So far we've covered Champagne, French Roast, Legendary Dark, and Cappuccino.  Up this week is the Raspberry, then we have just seven more mouth-watering ones to go.  Okay, so I know what you might be thinking right now...is this all really necessary?  Well, ummm all I have to say is that's a completely ridiculous question...I'm not even going to answer!

But seriously, my only point of this story is that you might not always like her and you might try to hide her...but sometimes channeling your inner Bridezilla can actually be a lot of fun.  When you're completely overwhelmed with wedding planning, she might just come up with a few brilliant ideas - like tasting chocolate - for you to focus on instead.
