Who said weddings are fun? They are not when rudeness and thoughtlessness run rampant. Take comfort when you read Bridezilla. Both sides of the aisle can learn from this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Honestly, this wasn't a very witty book. It seemed pretty stuffy and not very enlightening. It was like the authors were just stuck all over themselves. Read Emily Post books, instead.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

After seeing this book reviewed in a wedding magazine, I had to buy it. After purchasing it, I couldn't put it down. Truly one of the best wedding related books I have read. As a bride to be, I must say, after reading this I will never turn into a Bridezilla!! Very informative as to etiquette and what NOT to do!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book was absolutely hysterical. It is hard to believe that people have sunk to such levels. This book is a must for anyone going through anything remotely wedding-related.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Bridezilla is really a fun book and would make a great gift for someone contemplating a wedding. We¿ve probably all heard wedding horror stories, maybe even lived through one ourselves. You haven¿t heard anything like these true stories of real Bridezillas. It¿ll boggle your mind that brides and even some grooms could become such monsters (or dare I say, idiots) all in the name of ¿having their special day.¿ I thought I¿d read it all until I got to Chapter 6: Extreme Bridezillas. Really funny, outrageous, horrendous stories throughout the book. But the authors don¿t just dish the jaw-dropping stories, they give you the etiquette ¿rules¿ to avoid such disasters. Now I¿ll have to go buy a second copy to give to my daughter. If you¿re a mother, like I am, you¿ll want to get your son or daughter their own Bridezilla long before they contemplate marriage. That way, with luck and the guidance of Miss Jeanne and Auntie Noe, they can avoid losing friends and becoming fodder for the sequel.

Every prospective bride (and groom and bride?s mother) needs to read this book before undertaking the extensive (and expensive) project of a planning a wedding. Not only does it give practical wedding etiquette advice, but your mouth will drop open in astonished reader surprise: they did what?? From horrors such as demanding that each shower guest provide a bottle of champagne for the wedding, to retracting already-issued invitations by voice mail, this book crosses the barrier of rude vs. modern manners and accents the acceptable decorum dedicated by just being polite and dignified! One thing that this book emphasizes is that a something that many modern weddings and the people who plan them have forgotten: a guest is a guest and must be treated as such. Another point that is made is that the modern bride, dubbed Bridezilla, is not made Queen Demanding just because she has a ring and a date! Some of the true tales in this book are really from, well, that other place, and we can all relate to them (perhaps having been involved in a wedding and having known a true Bridezilla). When reading this book, married people will question themselves as I did and hope that we were not this bad! Told in a funny, up beat manner, you will laugh, almost cry, and definitely feel for these poor people caught in their Bridezilla?s idea of a perfect wedding! A definite, perfect wedding (or shower) gift for any one who knows a Bridezilla-to-be.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I just got it and couldn't put it down! I've been a big fan of Etiquette Hell for years, but never saw these stories before. I LOVED the authors dialog between stories. They call it like it really is and don't pander to the idea that anything goes because it's the bride's day. Every bride should have this book to remind her of what happens to brides who ignore the rules of being polite and how their friends can turn on them when they get sucked into the It's My Day notion. I've been a bridesmaid several times and a couple of brides turned into bridezilla - bridesmaids and friends of brides could learn a TON from this book. It's hilarious and essential reading! And wait until you read the stuff about groom monsters!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book is excellent! So many people these days forget simple manners and good taste! It seems that 'anything goes' because it is the couple's day - but we forget that you are NEVER supposed to inconvience, embarass or stress your GUESTS! Bridezillas and Groomsmonsters are often guilty of being quite demanding ('Gimmee') and forgetting that they are not OWED a wedding gift, nor the pleasure of a guest's company. You'll read this book with your mouth agape (asumming someone taught you ANY manners!) and your sides hurting from laughing so much! It is thoroughly enjoyable!Was this review helpful?
