Zodiac Signs Who Know What It Takes To Be A Bride Vs. Wedding Day Bridezillas

When you have a moment check out the bridezilla wedding stories available on the internet. It's amazing to see how many women can change from a sweet person into someone people hardly recognize the moment that their dress is on and they are preparing for that big 'I do."

I have never had to plan a wedding before and have never actually seen what goes on before the actual ceremony, but I can imagine just how stressful it can be. It's one thing to know how to be the perfect bride, and chances are you didn't start off knowing what it takes to be one.

The closest image I can pull together that could be most similar to planning your wedding is if you were in charge of planning an event and you were in charge of everything, but everyone you ask to help you out seems to have no idea what your vision is.

And instead of being able to read your mind, just ends up making more work for you. If I had to plan something all on my own and I wanted every single thing to be perfect, I would probably lose my mind, too. I’m not always a perfectionist, but when I’m dealing with something really important in my life, I always try to go above and beyond to make it amazing.

So, when it comes to brides trying to make sure that everything from their dress and their shoes to their cake and their venue absolutely flawless, it makes sense that they would want to be perfectionists. Plus, there’s the added benefit of getting a little drunk with power because you get to call the shots. But honestly, kudos to those cool brides who plan their own weddings.

If I were to get married, I would definitely hire a wedding planner, even if it meant spending more money than I was planning. I mean, I’d still get to be in charge, but I wouldn’t have to worry about sweating through my wedding dress because someone else is handling all the details.

That said, there are some brides who just take it way too far and turn into bridezillas. You know who Godzilla is, right? The big monster that can crush buildings with its feet and tear people in half with its teeth?

Of course, you know who that is. Now, put a wedding gown on Godzilla and you know what you get? Bridezilla. Bridezillas are brides who turn into crazy monsters on their wedding day – and sometimes even during the planning phase. They are the brides that want everything done to their exact specifications and if they don’t get it, you might want to hide because something is getting thrown.

Bridezillas are not the same as brides who hope things turn out perfect because those brides at least know that things are bound to go wrong on their wedding day. Bridezillas would physically fight every god associated with weather, every weatherman in the state, and every cloud in the area just to make sure it didn’t rain.

And if anything – even something totally out of her control – goes wrong? Someone is getting blamed for it and it won’t be the rainclouds (it’ll be you). In a word, bridezillas are scary. And unfortunately, there are some zodiac signs who just can’t help it.

Even if they seem unassuming at first, these zodiac signs will make you regret ever offering to help her out because she can turn into a bridezilla in two seconds flat. So, if you’re ever around one of them, good luck – you’re gonna need it. Here are the zodiac signs and their horoscope dates who are bridezillas on their wedding day vs. the ones who aren’t, according to astrology — ranked from most to least likely to turn into bridezilla before saying 'I do."

The Bridezillas:

1. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo is a perfectionist in every sense of the word. She’s a very “my way or the highway” kind of person, so if you’re not doing exactly what she wants you to do, then you might as well not even try. When Virgo turns into a bridezilla, it’s because her perfectionist side is coming out full force. And if you get on her bad side, expect her to breathe fire.

Virgo has been planning her wedding day ever since she first laid eyes on her soon-to-be spouse. She knows exactly what she wants in life and when she’s made up her mind, there’s no changing it again. For that reason, she already knows her color scheme, flower choice, and the dress she’s going to wear – all down to the last detail. If it’s not perfect, she’s going to let you know and stay acting like a bridezilla until someone makes her happy again. Yikes.

2: ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries’ heart is definitely full of love on her big day, that I can promise. But I can also promise that just because she has heart eyes for her boo and is excited about her wedding, she’s not still keeping a hawk eye on everything else going on behind the scenes. Aries is the kind of bridezilla that says things like, “Oh, it doesn’t matter, “ and “Whatever you think, I’m sure it’ll look fabulous,” but deep down she doesn’t mean it.

Aries is one of the more controlling zodiac signs, which means that she gets the last say about everything – even if it only sounds like a suggestion. Just because she comments that you might want to move a candle a few inches closer to the center of the table doesn’t mean she’ll be fine with it if you don’t. Trust me, if she’s not controlling everything, she’s gonna find how she can. This bridezilla would rather stop the ceremony halfway through to fix someone’s hem than imagine what her perfect day would be like if she didn’t.

3: SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Not trying to hurt anyone’s feelings here, but Scorpio is a crazy bridezilla on her wedding day. She has so many emotions happening at once – blissful happiness for her partner, excitement for her big day, sadness for things that will change – that she simply cannot deal with anger in a mature way anymore. If she isn’t floating on her happy cloud the entire time she’s considered a bride, she will have someone’s neck for it.

Scorpio knows that she can be a lot to handle, especially when there’s so much chaos on a day like her wedding day. But she also knows that this is HER day, not anyone else’s and she will defend her right to be a crazy bridezilla until she’s blue in the face. She’ll have all of her bridesmaids running around for her so she doesn’t have to sweat through her dress, just so that she’s constantly placated. Trust me when I say that you will be exhausted after her big day is over.

4: CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn has put a lot of time and effort into planning her wedding day – just like she has with her relationship. This is not the time for her to be hesitant or unsure about anything and she knows it. She also knows that there are different shades of white and that you don’t seat the divorced couples next to each other (or even at the same table). Sure, you can put your two cents in on that – if you want to see bridezilla come out.

Capricorn is the uncompromising bridezilla. She has color-coded notes on-hand to make sure she gets everything checked off her list, and she’s a phone call away from having a taxi come pick you up and ship you off somewhere remote if you don’t agree with her. You can’t even suggest anything different than what she has planned unless you want her to bite your head off. Capricorn is in charge and the only thing you’re around for is to do whatever she tells you to do.

5: LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo has been waiting for her big, beautiful wedding day ever since her fiancé put that giant rock on her finger. She’s more than ready to get married because she feels nothing less than confident on her wedding day. There’s a good chance that Leo is the bride who has picked a theme or a very lavish color palette because she is looking for top-tier status today.

Speaking of status, Leo is the high-quality bridezilla who won’t let anyone even think about saying the “s-word” to her: substitute. If she wanted cheap flowers, she would have ordered cheap flowers. If she thought a crappy playlist would have been better, she would have just hooked up the dusty boom box that’s been sitting in her garage since the 90s instead of springing for an expensive DJ. My point is, this bridezilla doesn’t even want to hear your excuses because if she does, she’s going to scream.

6: PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces isn’t an overwhelming, headache-inducing bridezilla, but she definitely can be a handful if she’s not happy. Pisces is one of those zodiac signs that’s been dreaming of her wedding day ever since she can remember. In fact, she probably still has that book with all the inspiration you can imagine for the perfect wedding day – an old-school Pinterest board if you will.

So, when Pisces says she wants pink roses and a glittery tiara, that’s what she’s going to get. She needs to stay true to her vision and make her wedding dreams come true. She definitely won’t scream at you if she doesn’t get what she wants, but she’s become the passive-aggressive bridezilla that’s somehow so much worse. And unless you want to make a bride cry on her big day, you better help her right whatever wrong she has before she decides her wedding isn’t perfect enough to tie the knot.

The Perfect Brides

1: CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is the kind of bride who can’t help but start to tear up the moment her alarm wakes her up on her big day. She’s nervous, excited, reminiscent, and happy all at once and it’s a lot to handle – both for her and for everyone else around her. This overwhelming sense of emotions just hitting her in waves all day is too distracting for her to be a bridezilla.

Cancer just hopes that everything goes off without a hitch, but she’ll still be an emotional hot mess until she and her other half have left the building. That said, she’s one accident or mistake away from bursting into tears, so save her from ruining her makeup and possibly calling the whole thing off because a bead fell of her dress by sticking close to her and being her second-in-command. Just knowing that she’s surrounded by friends and family who are there for her will make her feel much better.

2. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is the stubborn bride who doesn’t want to be persuaded into doing anything that could potentially ruin her big day. No, she’s not going to walk from the car to the building when the clouds look like that, what if it rains? No, she doesn’t care if her shoes are giving her blisters, they match the dress. It makes sense that she would want to not have to worry about the little things, but it’s also a lot of work keeping her happy.

Taurus loves the thought of having a beautiful wedding with all of the people she loves. So, even when these little things threaten to distract her from what’s most important on her wedding day (her wedding, duh), she’s really just full of love and happiness today. She won’t be able to keep that smile off her face and she can’t wait to finally tie the knot with her favorite person. So, even if she’s a little bit of a pill at the moment, she’ll be able to joke about her behavior later on to let you know it didn’t mean anything.

3. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is bounce-off-the-walls happy on her wedding day. She’s actually kind of like a puppy with a very short attention span because so much is going on that she doesn’t really have time to focus on one thing for too long. All she cares about is getting her dress on, her makeup done, and her shoes fastened so that she can walk down the aisle and make it happen.

Sagittarius is definitely not a bridezilla because she wants to remember her wedding day as one that was full of love and happiness – not arguments and stress. As long as the caterers and her wedding planner keep things in order and make sure that the building doesn’t burn down, she’s happy. Thank god for zodiac signs like Sagittarius who can just give you a thumbs up and say, “Sounds good to me!” without any caveats or a long list of tasks.

4. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini is also like a puppy with a short attention span on her wedding day, except she’s not as calm, cool, and collected about it as other zodiac signs are. Really, she’s just way too indecisive to be the bridezilla that calls all the shots. If she hasn’t already decided on something vital to the ceremony, like the right flowers to hold or which music to play while she walks down the aisle, she’s handing off that responsibility to someone else.

Gemini’s indecisiveness can make her crazy stressed and that is just not something she wants to deal with right now. Take the wedding planning phase – this is probably her least favorite part about getting married because she has to be the one to make all the decisions. Too hectic! She would much rather focus on having a good time and getting some really good pictures now that her big day has finally arrived instead of making any more decisions. The only one she wants to make is deciding to tie the knot (which she’s already prepared for).

5. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius is a very laid-back bride and not even close to being a bridezilla. She’s just happy that she can drink champagne while someone does her hair and makeup rather than being the one doing it all herself. Aquarius is more of a chill-zilla than a bridezilla. Like Sagittarius, she’s even known to just kind of shrug her shoulders and say, “Hey, whatever works,” when someone asks her a question.

Aquarius knows that her wedding day is just a formality. Not to get all deep here, but she’s just excited to finally be able to spend the rest of her life with her best friend. In fact, weddings really aren’t her thing at all. She’s more than happy to just go to the courthouse (or Vegas) and get hitched, but she knows that her family and friends probably want the whole shebang. As long as she still gets to do what she came here for (get hitched), she’s happy. Everything else is just for fun.

6. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra is the most anti-bridezilla of the zodiac. Not only will she try her hardest to make sure everything goes smoothly on her wedding day, but she’s also one of the sweetest, kindest zodiac signs to deal with. She’s been planning her big day forever now and today is just the like figurine on top of the wedding cake.

All she cares about is making herself beautiful, spending some quality time with her bridesmaids before the ceremony and her friends and family after the ceremony, and getting to call herself Mrs. Libra by the end of the day. Not only does Libra want to make sure that she’s having fun, but she also wants to make sure that everyone else is, too. She’s the kind of bride who makes sure that the caterers serve everyone’s favorite foods and the DJ plays everyone’s favorite songs, rather than just making her wedding day just about her – she wants to share the love!
