How to keep Bridezilla at bay
Being chosen as a member of a wedding party is quite the privilege. Whether you're a sibling, a college buddy or a childhood friend, it's never guaranteed that you'll make the cut come the big day.
But what happens if the honour is bestowed on you but you haven't a clue about what you're meant to do? Nobody wants a Bridezilla, right?
Well fear not, for Irish writer Natasha Mac a'Bháird has created this manual to help you take on all the responsibilities of the role stress-free(ish).

One of the sections that caught our eye was the various types of bridesmaids there are. Any of these sound familiar?
The Flake: She’s so sorry she had to cancel your coffee date to discuss the dresses, but she just remembered she had a thing.
The Reluctant One: She’s always the last to answer emails, never has time for shopping and when you do get time with her, she just says ‘Whatever’!
The Know-It-All: If she was getting married, she wouldn’t have it in this hotel & that the band the bride has chosen are so last year!
The Boss: There’s no point in coming up with suggestions about the colour of the dresses or the venue for the hen – this bridesmaid is convinced her way is the only way!
The Rebel: Her purple hair is clashing with the powder blue dresses & she wouldn’t dream of covering up her tattoos.
The Skint One: She heaves a huge sigh of relief when the bride makes it clear she’s paying for the dresses. When another bridesmaid suggests afternoon tea in the Merrion, she put’s forward a picnic in the park as an alternative.
I'd definitely be 'The Flake', but what about you?
