Battling the “Bridezilla” in you

I first came across this term, “Bridezilla,” when I started planning my own wedding about two years ago while doing some research on the interwebs. The term is apparently coined from the popular monster movie, Godzilla, and the word “bride.” The “-zilla” suffix is added to the word “bride,” which would then mean something like “a monster bride.” This term is usually associated to brides who become so bitchy to everyone that others consider them “monsters”β€”in a figurative sense of course.

Too bad I lost the link to this online quiz which “determines” if you’re turning to be a Bridezilla or not. But, as we all know, stress can really trigger the monster in all of us.

My Filipino Wedding blog advisory!

Just a head’s up, everyone! My Filipino Wedding will be inaccessible for about 24 hours this weekend. I’m currently moving the site to a different server, so it will take a few hours before the new nameservers propagate on the Net.

Don’t worry though, the next time this blog goes online after the down time, I’ll have some new stuff in store for you! I’ve been so out of commission for the past two months. My family just moved to a different house, and we’ve been really busy renovating and fixing stuff around here. So now that Marc and I are settled, you can expect new posts in the coming weeks.

Best wishes to all May brides! πŸ™‚
