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.
