The best part about a wedding is being the bride, of course.
Many think their wedding was the most amazing event in history. And why not? All your friends are there! Eating the food you choose. Drinking cocktails you provide them (which means they feel obligated to be nice to you). The music is your choice. The décor suits your taste. It’s perfect!
And the bride is the reining queen of the entire event. She is the superstar that everyone wants to touch. For one day (if she's lucky), the bride wears an ensemble tailored specifically to her. She has people waiting to fulfill her every demand: cars to chauffeur her, assistants to guide her, specialists to dab her shiny nose with powder.
It takes awhile for this idea to sink in for some brides. For instance, I remember telling my husband how GREAT our bartenders were because they always remembered to pour me the specific wine I wanted without me having to ask. I mean, how did they remember it was me?!? (yes, post bridezilla, I now realize the big, poofy, white dress tipped them off)
The bride sets the schedule and all her court surrounds her and takes hundreds of pictures of her. It’s like being Madonna for the day…but even better because you get to actually EAT the cake!
It’s nice. If not slightly annoying. And just when you start getting used to the idea, the night is over and you’re back to being the bridesmaid.
