Eek Do you have a "Bridezilla" clause in your contract?
I love shooting weddings! I enjoy the whole creative opportunities it allows. This weekend the wife and I sat and watch several eps of Bridezilla on Bravo and we were just blown away! It actually angered me a few times at that shear nerve of these crazed brides! I'm seriously considering putting a Bridezilla clause in my wedding contract. I was wondering if any of you have a similar clause in your contracts as well. Have you run in to a bridezilla on any of your shoots? What would you do if you did?

I have yet to run into a 'zilla. Well there is my ex-wife but she didn't go all zilla till a few months later! Ha!!

I have seen that show a couple of times and it is amazing how some of these brides act. Why would anyone marry one of those wenches? If that isn't a sgn of what is to come I don't know what is. Maybe they have lots of money or some magical girl parts or something but it is amazing what they capture on that show!

I have nothing like that in my contract. I think a few pictures of the freakout would suffice in any any legal battles!

I've heard that the brides selected for that show are encouraged to be a little more dramatic.. I'd actually take it with a grain of salt.
