The 10 different types of bride

Here are 10 different types of bride - which one are you?

It's time to define which kind of bride you are in the run-up to your wedding day. Have things been stressing you out or are you so laid-back that even your groom is starting to wonder if you actually want to get married? 

1. The budget bride

She’s searched the internet for inspiration and everything from invitations to table decorations is DIY. She might have purchased her dress second-hand and she’s been savvy throughout the planning.

Most likely to: Make her own wedding cake to cut costs.

2. The bridezilla

You’ll find this one shouting at the caterers. Many wonder if she scared her husband-to-be into the marriage.

Most likely to: Shout at her wedding planner.

3. The anti-bride

Refusal to wear white and no meringue dress in sight, we’re not entirely sure why this bride is getting married. She goes against all of the typical wedding conventions and tells everyone about it.

Most likely to: Elope to avoid the typical church wedding.

4. The princess

This type of bride spent years waiting for her Prince Charming and couldn’t be more excited that her dreams have come true. You’ll spot a lot of pink at her wedding and her dress will be huge. She’ll also search for the most castle-like venue for her special day.  

Most likely to: Design her wedding based on a Pinterest board

5. The nervous bride

She’s planning everything from day one and is constantly on the lookout for things that might go wrong. Her invitations are sent out earlier than necessary and she’s always checking something.

Most likely to: Sigh with relief when she finally makes it down the aisle.

6. The last-minute bride

Less excitable than your typical bride, she’s always worryingly calm while others around her ask whether she’s selected her venue yet. She spends more time assuring people she’ll sort it later than she does organising the actual wedding.

Most likely to: Wait until a week before to send out her invitations, if she has any.

7. The fun loving bride

You might spot this bride getting married in Las Vegas and she certainly went overboard on her hen-do. This bride doesn’t take things too seriously and is the type to have an interesting themed wedding.

Most likely to: Show up in a bright coloured wedding dress and totally impractical shoes.

8. The bride who’s been planning for years

She started her Pinterest wedding board years before the engagement and knows exactly what she wants. She’s been planning her wedding since she watched her first Disney film.

Most likely to: Plan the whole thing on her own.

9. The perfectionist

This bride has decided how her wedding will be and won’t let anything go wrong. Everything is researched and she can sometimes turn into bridezilla if things don’t go to plan.

Most likely to: Have her whole wedding planned months earlier than everyone else.

10. The sentimental bride

Wearing her mother’s wedding dress, his grandmother’s engagement ring and stressing in case she’s forgotten to invite a family member, this bride’s all about making the occasion as special as possible.

Most likely to: Cry before she’s even got her dress on.

Why would someone want to get married if they don't want to wear a white meringue? Maybe to show their love and commitment to their partner and pledge to spend their life together?

This "article" has merely taken stereotypical personality traits and extrapolated them into "bridal personalities." Anyone could come up with a dozen more personality traits and write 12 more!

This article makes no sense to me. First, why is it necessary to try to define brides into groups? Is it to try to push us into identifying as one of these and then live up to the definition's expectations? I've been married before, and I can say that I don't think any bride falls into any one category. I think every bride could look at all 10 and find herself in the description during at least one point in her planning process. I actually took offense to #2's the "Anti-bride" and the comment, "we're not entirely sure why she's getting married." Last time I checked, we're getting married because we are in love and want to make a commitment to someone. Just because I opt not to have a cake or wear white shouldn't give rise to the question whether or not I should be getting married!
