I am Tabby. I am 25 and a stay-at-home mom. What made me a “Bridezilla” is having to put up with 6 girls in my bridal party (specifically Connie). They ALWAYS tend to bring the Bridezilla out in me, more so than other issues that I had. They thought that they “needed” to voice their opinions (when it wasn’t needed or asked for), and they were constantly complaining about something, whether it be the shoes I made them wear, that they all had to wear their hair up, or how hot it was outside the day of the wedding.
I adore Bill’s family. I think the reason I love Bill’s parents SO much is because they remind me a lot of my parents! His sister, “Crazy” Connie- she is something else. Some days I can manage being around her; other days I would rather swim with the sharks! (And don’t get me started on how annoying her laugh is!)
My favorite part of the wedding day would have to have been walking down the aisle and looking at Bill that day for the first time and just feeling a flood of emotions. Seeing him cry really pulled at my heartstrings.
I didn’t go into ‘hardcore’ planning mode for the wedding until about February this year. I definitely wouldn’t say that I stayed ‘sane’ during the planning process. The florist and I didn’t quite see eye to eye during my consultation.We had HUGE issues with the tuxes. I think ALL the men at my wedding in tuxes had something wrong except for 3. And having Connie in my ear every decision I made was completely aggravating.
We agreed that we weren’t going to take a honeymoon, and then he surprised me with a trip to Rising Sun, Indiana to the gambling boat called, Rising Star Casino & Resort. It was an AMAZING honeymoon, especially since neither of us had ever experienced gambling before. It was fun!
I wouldn’t change anything about my ‘wedding day.’ It was most certainly very very annoying to have the camera crew here the week leading up to the big day. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t have been on the show. Of course there would be “BRIDEZILLA” moments, cameras or not. Although, I think my week would have been more productive without them here. I wouldn’t say this was ‘fun’ to share with an audience. The only people I cared about sharing my day with were already attended my wedding. It was more of an ‘experience’ for us. I definitely wouldn’t do it again.
There are NO children on the horizon for us. After we had our daughter last July we decided that we were very happy with the family we had, and I got fixed. Nothing really seems different since the wedding. Other than having another ring on my hand, everything seems the same as it was before the wedding.
I still catch myself calling him my fiancé, and he calls me his wife every chance he gets. He’s adorable! I’m most certainly looking forward to a long happy life with Bill. He is the man of my dreams, and just when I think it’s impossible to love him more than I already do, he surprises me!!
