How Can I Be a Chill Bride?

Sadly, we have come to face the fact that there are no chill brides. At some point during your engagement, something big or small will break you and you will be the bridezilla you were warned about. In our opinion, it is not a bride’s fault that she is a bridezilla. When a million people criticize every decision you make, there comes a point when the tears let loose and you say things in a tone that is not very you. You won’t know it until you’ve been there, but we have a couple of strategies to help you come as close as possible to being that chill bride you hoped you would be.
First, have no regrets aka make a decision and stick with it! Everyone will always have a different opinion which is why they live your life and you live yours. When it comes to a day meant specially for you and your soulmate, you can and should make your own decisions. When people give their unsolicited advice, acknowledge it, move on, and don’t let anyone change your mind. Second, choose your battles wisely. Some fights aren't worth ending relationships over, like a week-long argument with your fiance over a cake flavor that just so happened to be your second favorite. Ask yourself, is it worth it? Last but not least, put your happiness first. This is an incredible moment in your life and you need to be selfish and do what makes you happy. It’s your wedding so you can get away with making other people a little uncomfortable at times in order to make your day better. It’s your memories after all, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
