Thought Catalog recently shared an interesting article on 5 types of brides you will meet this season, and we thought of sharing it with you.
“You will realize that nearly every bride fits into one of these 5 categories. Wedding season is on the horizon; good luck identifying the engaged extremists in your life”:
Does she even need an introduction? We have all encountered the classic, terrifying Bridezilla during our journey into adulthood. She is notorious for temper tantrums, pet-peeves, meltdowns, and her unrealistically large, 3-ring binder, where her big day is scheduled down to the millisecond.
Similar to Bridezilla, the Obsessed Bride is the less-childish version. She also plans everything in a large binder, but her bridesmaids do not feel like they are constantly babysitting a whiny toddler post bedtime.
The polar opposite to the aforementioned brides, the One in Denial has no idea she is even getting married. When she does finally realize, she has no idea how quickly the date is approaching.
She is late on deadlines, she doesn’t know how many guests have RSVP’d, and she has yet to find a caterer that is willing to work with her procrastination (think contracts, people). She isn’t ready to give up her maiden name yet and, worst of all, the wedding is 2 weeks away and she has yet to order a wedding dress. Just 2 weeks already? No, no, that can’t be right!
The Free-Spirited Bride is almost too laid back. She, unlike her counterparts, allows—almost forces—her fiancé to do a lot of the planning. Nothing like your traditional bride, she is flexible enough to go with the flow. This bride isn’t afraid to wear a short, vintage dress from the 1950’s or to rock a flower halo in lieu of a veil. Table centerpieces don’t prove her love; if she forgets to order them, she won’t freak out about it. And matching bridesmaid dresses? That is so 2008 (not that she cares).
She accepts help from anyone that wants to contribute anything. You’ve got an old Christmas wreath laying around? She’ll find a use for it. Her friend’s mom owns a bakery? Yep, she hinted at the hookup. Who needs wedding favors?
Frugal enough to rationalize that a wedding ring is an unnecessary expense (engagement rings get the point across), she finds a way to cut corners everywhere. Sure, settling for catering from the rundown Chinese place down the street is not her best idea, but you can’t convince her otherwise. I mean, they accept competitor’s coupons!
