Ohhhh...Don't you dare laugh!!!

I was getting my daily dose of CuriosityKiller's blog thoughts, and came across this video. Sure, it may look really funny and that the bride is totally psycho, but I tell ya...this actually does happen in real life. Maybe not the extent to which this bride went, but it does happen.

There are so many emotions one feels when getting married. Every girl wants her wedding to be perfect. I am such a fuss free person, that J and I even considered eloping to avoid all the craziness. Of course, that wasn't an option, coming from such a large family like the one I have...and being the first girl to get married. I like to think that I was pretty cool, calm and collected. The only time I felt a little aggitated was the night before the wedding. Everyone kept telling me what to do, how to do things...suddenly, everyone was an expert at weddings and getting married. I know that everyone had the best intentions, but I hissed and snapped and got edgy with a few people. It's a very emotional time. My cousin even called me Bridezilla...I swear, I wasn't that bad though! In the end, it was a perfect wedding and everything turned out well.

Note to self: Don't sweat the small stuff! Now, stop reading and enjoy the video! LOL!

Holy smokes!! That girl was crazy! LOL! I'm glad I had a really good hairdresser for my wedding! LOL!

japanmanpete said...

HAHAHAH! Blimey! That was frightening! That woman has got some serious problems. I'm sure glad I wasn't the groom!

t said...

BAHHHHHH! That's freaky! That bride is just FREAKY! Chris, you didn't seem at all like that on your wedding! Then again, we didn't see the 'behind the scenes' part- only the blushing bride. It was a picture perfect wedding Chris. I doubt you were even remotely close to being a Bridezilla!

It's fake. http://origin.www.cbc.ca/arts/media/story/2007/02/04/bridezilla-campaign.html

Funny though!

LOL! Thanks, Jill! That is too funny! It did seem pretty 'over the top', but like I said, I have known a few brides who have totally flipped out before their weddings! Thanks for the link! What an interesting article!

PS. I flipped out the night before my wedding because I couldn't find my tiara and my veil! My mom hid it and forgot where it was...and we ended up yelling at each other. We found it (obviously), and all went without a hitch. Funny how you forget all the tears and drama that happened pre-wedding...and everything just falls into place. Had I known that earlier, I wouldn't have ever gotten stressed for nothing :)

One more comment before I go to bed! That was fake??? She sure looked convincing! LOL Well, even if it's fake I have a friend who's hairdresser messed up her hair. She had her hair done in loose curls but the curls sagged after a few hours (before the wedding) and it looked like she had just woken up and crawled out of bed. My friend went nutso on everyone: her mom, the bridesmaids and maid of honor. One of the girls ended up doing a makeshift updo on her and she looked beautiful but she was a total spastic lunatic before they rectified the situation.

I bet this is why most single girls are happy being single? Heh heh!

By the way, I've been checkign out all the cool blogs on your list and you've got osme pretty interesting people on there! And have you decided if you are coming to T.O. this month or what? Can you bring my bracelet I forgot over there at the wedding? I know it was almost a year ago but I think it may have left it at your parents house during the dinner the night before the wedding.

That's it. When I do get married, we're going to Hawaii or Las Vegas.

that's CRAZY! Glad it was fake! Imagine if it was real?

ahappilymarriedmommy said...

I just read Jills comment and checked out the link. Wow! That is some good acting! LOL! Thanks for the link, Jill. It's still funny in a scary kind of way! :0)

Chrissy121875 said...

Curiosity: I hear ya! Vegas or Hawaii with only a few close friends and family would be great! In the meantime, can I live vicariously through your travel adventures and dating drama? I love it! It's so Sex and the City!! Which character would you be? I love that you are embracing your freedom and independence! I loved my single days too. So much fun! Even though I'm married, life's still exciting and full of surprises. There's never a dull moment, which surprised me since when I was single, I thought all that would end once marriage began. Quite the contrary though!

T: Once again, my plans for Toronto were foiled. Things are just so busy here. Now that I've got a student homestaying with us and attending the local high school, it's even harder to get away. I'm going to try to get your way in March since my SIL and brother are expecting their first child then (and my student will be on March break).

Anon and AHMM: Yes, good acting, eh? LOL! Too funny!

Pavel said...

Oh, I am so glad to hear this is fake. I saw this yesterday and felt really bad for her AND for her husband to be!

Love your place, btw...

Chrissy121875 said...

Thanks, Pavel! :)

Dina said...

the clip actually brought me to tears. I totally thought it was real and I thought she wasn't THAT nuts...I felt so sorry for her and could imagine myself or others really reacting that way. I know how stressfull wedding days can be and I actually had a meltdown on my wedding day when the heater at the hall was broken and everyone was walking around in ski jackets, hats and gloves because it was the coldest day of the year. Luckily it was fixed before all the guests arrived...okay maybe my meltdown wasn't quite THAT bad but I really did think she was justified in being upset...oh well it was all a hoax in the end anyway ARGH!!

Diesel said...

Dang, that was a good performance. I totally bought it. I was hoping she wasn't going to take the scissors along on the honeymoon.

Chrissy121875 said...

Dina, I had no idea you had a little melt down on your wedding! I remember your wedding and just to let you know, it wasn't that cold in the hall :) Everything was perfect and the wedding was beautiful! You looked stunning!

One of my bridesmaids, Kelly (who has recently gotten engaged)told me not to worry about the little things. She said that I may know that each and every little detail wasn't as I had planned, but the guests didn't know that and everyone would think things went without a hitch. She was right. Everything went smoothly and beautifully. We got married in June and it was soooooo HOT in the hall. People were sweating, we couldn't get the AC working...LOL! I can look back now and laugh. Photos of guests with huge sweat marks and dripping faces now bring smiles to all of our faces. It was a great wedding and lots of fun. That's what people will remember.

But, yes...I agree with you. I can see how some brides can have melt downs and I too, felt sorry for the bride in the video (even if it wasn't real). Like I said, I don't usually spazz out, but I did have a melt down the day before my wedding :) As wonderful, memorable and perfect as that day was, I don't think I'd ever want to get married again! LOL!

Chrissy121875 said...

LOL! Diesel, it was a good performance, eh? So, was Mrs. Diesel cool, calm and collected for your wedding? Or like many brides, did she have a little emotional breakdown?

japanmanpete said...

Yuka checked out the video and was shocked. We both thought it was real! Yuka felt sorry for the groom-to-be! ((((((LOL)))))))

Jill said...

Dina you were no-where near the way she was on your wedding day, and you were not over-reacting to the heater situation at all. It was freezing (before the ceremony, by then it was fine). Of course, I had a melt-down at your wedding because Adam didn't show up and had no cell phone, and I was sure he was in a ditch somewhere...'nother story.

I could see someone freaking out like that, I guess. But really, it makes no sense. I don't know any bride that would leave a salon with hair that looks that awful, or that woudl go without a mother, or bridesmaid or whatever with her. Also, I am sure pretty well any bride would have at least tried or let her bridesmaids try to fix the hair before starting to chop it off. The freaking out I can totally see. Chopping it off? No way!!

Chrissy121875 said...

Jill, I remember you being stressed out at Dina's wedding because Adam was late! That was actually quite scary since it was winter and the roads weren't the greatest.

Were you cool, calm and collected at your wedding? Yours was such a pretty wedding too! I didn't have a major breakdown, but I was a bit of a spazz a few times the night before the wedding.

Like you, I didn't think any bride would have gone to a salon alone to get her hair done for her wedding. I thought that was strange. As for the chopping all the hair off...I was actually quite worried that she had serious emotional problems!!! I had a friend who was bi-polar and she went from extreme to another. She once chopped off her own hair (not for a wedding, because she's never been engaged or married), but because she was having a bad hair day. Mind you, I'm not friends with her anymore. She was once my best friend, but with her mental stability so unpredictable, as much as I tried to help her, it was just too draining and too hard. Part of me wishes I could have done something more for her. Then again, she was so out of control...but that's another story for another time.

Dina knows part of the reason I'm no longer friends with this person. Dina and I were living together when the situation with my friend was at its worst.

fake or not fake, still scarey! Sorry to hear about your friend with the mental illness Christine. It's really hard to watch and stand by when some one you care about is not well.
