The Seven Deadly Bridal Sins
Bridezilla? I don't think so. Before you catch yourself in a jam, learn the seven behaviors that can get your bridal behind in trouble.
Sin #1: Talking Endlessly About the Wedding:
While exciting, the engagement period can be a scary time. But trust that things will work out fine. And the next time someone asks about your wedding plans, keep your answer to a sentence or two.
Sin #2: Being Too Concerned with Throwing the "Perfect" Wedding
"Suddenly, I realized I was planning this whole thing so that I'd be with my husband for the rest of my life, not so I could say my sugar cubes matched my flowers." When you find yourself ignoring your budget, remember the same thing.
Sin #3: Neglecting Your Fiancé
"I can't meet you for lunch, sweetie, I have an appointment with my florist." Sound like you lately? take precedence over caring for each other. So, take time off from big-day tasks to spend regular old girlfriend-boyfriend time together.
Sin #4: Becoming a Total Diva
Are you in danger of going overboard on the attention-grabbing front, demanding more, more, more from friends and bridesmaids? In addition to one or two just-for-you events, plan get-together's that are all about fun and friendship and have nothing to do with your wedding.
Sin #5: Blowing Your Wedding Budget
you don't want to start your marriage under a cloud of debt.
Be sure to take time to set up a budget that you and your family can all agree on!
Sin #6: Not Acknowledge What Your Parents May Be Going Through
The fact is, your wedding marks a big transition for your parents as well as for you, no matter how old you are. A child's marriage signals a change in parental identity-from parents to potential grandparents. These are heavy thoughts, so it's no wonder many parents bury their emotions under silly fights, or even by seeming uninterested in the wedding. So give your parents a little extra attention as well because they are your parents and they love you!
Sin #7: Crash Dieting
Extreme dieting may help you drop pounds, but it's not healthy. If you diet, make sure you eat no less than 1,200 calories a day and lose no more than two pounds per week.
