I can’t wait to watch Bridezillas and see some of the beautiful moments, as well as the crazy ones, too, from my wedding! The start of my wedding week was scary. When I went for my final fitting, my second outfit didn’t stretch and actually split open! My seamstress had to go find more material and remake my outfit in a matter of days and add more bling to my wedding dress because it was not blinged out enough! My mom and [grandma] had the nerve to tell me I didn’t need any more bling in it — they must not know me!

One of the worst moments had to be when [my husband] Kenard and my bestie Marcus actually had a fight the night of my bachelorette party. They made up, but Marcus still acted like an ass throughout my whole wedding. I didn’t speak to him for a month after the wedding! I wouldn’t have thought I would have had so much drama going on leading up to the wedding.

My bridesmaids seemed to do everything to piss me off all because they wanted to be damn near naked all the time, something I did not want at all. They bothered my seamstress so much, she went against what I wanted and cut the top where all their titties were out just like they wanted. With all this drama, my fiancé Kenard turned into a Groomzilla! I swear this wedding couldn’t have been over fast enough. He had all kinds of rules that I never heard of in nobody’s wedding!

STACY’S BRIDEZILLA BLOG

Every element of my wedding was important. I don’t think there was anything I didn’t think of to make my special day as perfect as one could imagine. It was important to me to highlight the love that my fiancé, Russell, and I have for each other, so the praise dancers were a must! I wanted to tie in a song that was near and dear to my heart, so Russell knew he was “The One.”

I also wanted to be sure we captured one of the most important — if not the most important — days of my life with a picture perfect painting of the two of us that could be done during the wedding. At one point, I didn’t think it was going to happen because of the lack of communication with my wedding planner, Darryl. I have to be honest, Darryl had me sweating on a few occasions!

My anxiety was extremely high when he failed to secure the painter initially, and informed me that she was no longer available. I told him he better grab a canvas and get to painting! I don’t know if he was playing with my emotions, but that probably isn’t the best thing when you are dealing with a semi-over-the-top bride!

Overall, my wedding was absolutely amazing because I got my husband, my family, and my friends! And it all screamed STACY!!
