    Ok so I feel like I am a laid back bride that really just wants this whole wedding process to be an excuss to have FUN! I told my mother that I had only 3 things that I needed her to do:
    1.) wear a one piece bathing suit
    2.) Not wear a dress that has her breast hanging out
    3.) throw a bridal shower that is FUN IE, not tea and mini sandwiches, I would rather margaritas and nachos.

    Now my mother tells me to stop making demands and hangs up on me WTF?!?!

    Am I being a bridzilla?
    Live every day like the next will never come.

        I agree with TD. Her feelings may have been slightly hurt even though they are truths to you. But stick to your requests and tell her they are not demands just the way you feel

          Oh dear... but I find it pretty funny that you have to tell her number 1 and number 2, and then are concerned that she's going to throw you a prissy tea party.

          Don't worry, she'll get over it.

            I agree with Becks that you have to tell her about 1 & 2 and you are afraid she will throw a tea party. lol

            On the other hand I am a mom and a bride. My daughter is 24 and I would of laughed if she would of mentioned 1 & 2. I would of taken it as a joke but thats the relationship we have. I think your mom might of been a bit hurt but she is a mom and we do get over it.

              I agree with #1 and #2- she was probably hurt. Just tell her you don't want her showing up the Bride, that you are suppose to be the center of attention. Maybe she will look at that as a compliment and not an insult then? Too funny though!

                I'm sorry, I had to laugh at those requests!!! I think you are being more than reasonable, so the answer is NO you are not being a bridzilla.

                Maybe they "stung" your mom a bit, but I would hope that she would be able to see that this is reasonable!! I sure as hell wouldn't want my mom walking around like that!
                Good luck!

                  If you had to tell her #1 and #2, then it's obvious she thinks she looks pretty good showing it all in a bikini and can't see what others see about her. Telling her the truth probably offended her big time!

                    I totally agree with request #2! My DH's aunt showed up to our wedding the day of (I knew that they were as these were the flights they got) however, when I was walking down the aisle, I did a double take of his aunt whose boobs were just hanging out of her dress for the whole world to see. It was completely distracting and they weren't small boobs either. Needless to say, I was pretty irritated. I didn't actually think that I would have to tell someone who should have enough common sense and decency to NOT show up wearing a really tasteless low-cut dress to my wedding. Sheesh!

                    Don't worry, if she loves you as a mother should, she'll get over it and comply with your very reasonable requests. Good luck!!

                      I am sure her feelings were a little hurt over #1 and #2, but she will get over it.
