Avoiding Bride-zilla

I certainly wouldn't claim to be an expert at this (avoiding bride-zilla), but I have come to notice the power of music to influence. I have also come to notice as wonderful and exciting as starting my life with J is, planning a wedding is emotionally, physically, and mentally exhausting. My advice to fellow brides and future brides is this, get yourself a KILLER PLAYLIST. Include songs that make you happy wedding related or not, relaxing happy songs that remind you of your guy. I choose songs from Father of the Bride and songs on my sisters wedding video, just good tunes that remind me of the joyous giddy feeling of being a bride. Whenever I feel stressed I pop in my playlist and enjoy. It's also good because these songs will always take me back to wedding days later in life. My suggestions below...

Chapel of Love The Dixie Cups

(Today I Met) The Boy I'm Gonna Marry The Crystals
