About This Quiz

The thing about getting married is that you have been thinking about this day for basically your entire life (at least after you started dating). You have considered everything. You have the details of the dress you want, the flowers you want, the venue you have to have, and even the flavor of the wedding cake. The funny thing is that even though you have been thinking about your wedding for so many years, you still have so much work to do now that you know it is going to happen. You could have considered your dream centerpieces, but working with a company to make that dream come true is a little more difficult when you're right in the middle of it. This is what makes even the most chill people on Earth turn into erratic, dramatic balls of emotion on their wedding days. This is what's known as turning into a bridezilla because you will have no problem curb-stomping someone who looks at you the wrong way on your big day. 

If you don't think there is any possible way you could ever be a bridezilla, answer these questions to find out if you're right.
