what the zodiac signs are like as brides

Until you find yourself engaged, you don’t really know what kind of bride you’ll be. I think, for the most part, we all assume that we won’t be a bridezilla, but once that engagement ring is on our finger things change fast.

While our personality definitely plays a role in what kind of bride we’ll be, so does our zodiac sign and sometimes, even our horoscope. In fact, it’s during these major moments in our life that our positive and negative Zodiac traits become really apparent. Even our horoscopes can't protect us from possibly becoming a runaway bridezilla.

If you’ve been wondering what sort of bride you’ll be after your partner pops the big question, take a look at your zodiac sign. It reveals everything you need to know. Here's what the zodiac signs are like as brides.

1. ARIES (March 21 – April 19): The Bossy Bride

Honestly, you’re probably better off not having a bridal party, because you’ll just drive them all crazy with your bossy ways. Yes, it’s your big day and you want things perfect, but is it really necessary to be so bossy? No. So do yourself and everyone who loves you a favor: Take a Xanax and quit telling everyone what to do. Your friends and family aren’t morons; they can function (and do a great job!) without you breathing down their neck.

2. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): The Headstrong Bride

You have a vision; we get it. We also get that the florist and wedding planner are going to go missing if your vision isn’t realized. While it’s great that you know what you want and won’t take no for an answer, you need to understand that being stubborn, especially in regards to your wedding, will just end in disappointment. No wedding looks like it was plucked from the pages of Real Simple and the sooner you get that through your headstrong brain, the happier everyone will be.

3. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): The Fun Bride

Yes! There are actually fun brides out there and they were all born under the Gemini sign! This isn’t to say that if you’re a Gemini you won’t have your moment of wedding drama, but for the most part, you realize that nothing is perfect and the wedding is supposed to be a good time, not something that has you on your knees begging your doctor for Valium. Other brides should take a lesson from you.

4. CANCER (June 21 – July 22): The Loving Bride

You’re in love. You’ve found your soulmate and everything is perfect. In fact, your relationship and your love for your partner are so perfect that you don’t even care if the wedding day isn’t as perfect. You realize that the most important day is the one after your wedding, when your life with your partner begins. That’s where your focus is directed.

5. LEO (July 23 – August 22): The Self-Centered Bride

You fell out of your mother’s womb shouting, “Me! Me! Me!” — and that’s exactly how you're going to be as a bride, too. If anyone questions anything, you’ll just remind them, yet again, that it’s YOUR wedding, YOUR day, and if someone can’t make this day a priority, they should just bugger off now. You only want people around who are going to bend over backward for you because, as you’ve convinced yourself, you’d do the same for them. (Sure.)

6. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): The Nitpicky Bride

“What do you mean your bridesmaid dress is a half-inch shorter than everyone else’s?!” Don’t roll your eyes; if you’re a Virgo this is totally something that is very likely to come out of your mouth. Although your attention to detail is going to make for a lovely wedding, this attention (read: obsession) with all the minor things is going to drive you and everyone around you totally nuts. True story: No one notices the fine details of a wedding except the bride and the wedding planner. Everyone else is just there for the open bar.

7. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22): The Superficial Bride

Oh, Libra, is there anything more important to you than beauty? No. Your dress is beautiful, the venue is beautiful, the centerpieces are beautiful, and even the quotes on the napkins are beautiful and stunning, even if they’re only for appearances and you don’t really care for the quote at all. As a Libra, you’ve been waiting your whole life to throw the perfect party that convinces everyone just how fantastic you are, and if one person shows up in anything but black tie, they’re dead.

8. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): The B*tch Bride

Sorry, Scorpio, but your b*tchy, callousness is just going to get worse once you become a bride. You might think that you’re not being your usual evil self because you’re all in love know and “softened,” but the reality is that leopards don’t change their spots. It’s probably best if you just elope to Vegas immediately and spare everyone. Also eloping now will guarantee you get your partner to the altar, not giving them a chance to bail on you.

9. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21): The Daring Bride

You are the bride who’s going to get married on top of Kilimanjaro, or while sky-diving, or have one of those surprise weddings where all the guests think it’s a party. As long as your wedding is something that no one has ever experienced before or will ever experience again, that’s all that matters to you. It’s only if it looks like your wedding is going to be boring, that you might pitch a fit. But just a small one, because deep down you know you’ll never be boring.

10. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19): The Responsible Bride

Between your responsibility and conservatism, you are the one bride of the zodiac signs who is not going to have an open bar. Why? Because you don’t want people to get too drunk and you sure as hell don’t want to pay for that drunkenness. You’re the bride who’s going to make practical purchases, not splurge on anything, and demand all your friends to help out with DIY stuff. Anything to save a buck and keep your savings account fat, right?

11. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): The Laid Back Bride

Of all the brides, Aquarius is the most relaxed. In fact, you’re so relaxed that you come off as aloof and people might even wonder if you’re excited about getting married at all. Of course, you’re beyond thrilled, but why make such a big deal about one day? If you didn’t have your family and future in-laws demanding things of you, you’d have your wedding in someone’s backyard with pizza, cupcakes, and beer.

12. PISCES (February 19 – March 20): The Emotional Bride

Everything. Is. So. Emotional. You cried when your partner proposed, you cried when you tried on your dress, and you know you won’t be able to get through the wedding day without the waterworks kicking into high gear. But when you’re not crying, you’re one of the very few understanding brides out there and the fact that not everyone can or will drop their life for your wedding is something that doesn’t bother you. Phew! You’re a breath of fresh air. Now here’s a tissue for those tears.
