Tips to Get Your Partner Back!
Today, she is a Bridezilla! But, when you met her, she was the apple of your eye, the sweetest thing you’d ever come across. After years of courting, you’ve decided that you want to spend the rest of your life getting to know her.
However, after popping the question and setting a date, it seems that your precious fiancé has transformed overnight. Her sweet, kind, girlish ways have been replaced with nagging, yelling, crying, cursing, and just about any other emotion you can think of. Before you contemplate leaving her at the altar on your big day, you should know her actions are only temporary.
So How Do You Deal with Your Bridezilla?
I know. It’s one thing to say that she will return to her normal self after the wedding, but quite another when the wedding is several months away. In the meantime, you’re dealing with a bunch of emotions and can’t for the life of you figure out what you did wrong.
After all, you’re the one who proposed! And it’s your day too, right? Anyway, the key to handling a woman during such a critical time in her life is with love, patience and reassurance.
Try a Little Tenderness
A wedding to you may be a simple ceremony where you say your “I dos” and exchange rings. But to your fiancé, it’s the biggest production of her life. She’s been waiting for this moment for as long as she can remember, and if it doesn’t go well, all eyes will be on her. When you consider the amount of pressure she’s under, you’ll realize that tenderness is what she needs. So here’s where you can start:
- When she comes to you with issues, be supportive.
Listen to what she has to say, offer your opinion, and most importantly, DON’T tell her not to worry about it. If you can, find a way to pacify her needs by reassuring her that things are under control.
- If she claims you’re not doing something right, don’t argue.
Instead, find out what she’d like you to do and try the best you can to accomplish it. Arguing makes things worse, and puts you in the dog house before you even move in together.
A Little Pampering Never Hurt
Planning a wedding is stressful. While your only responsibility might be to pay for the bills and show up on time, there is a lot going on that your bride is responsible for. After a day of trying on dresses or visiting reception venues, she’s literally burned out.
She’s trying to stay on budget, find a location that accommodates her desires and is likely putting up with the pressures of both your mothers. With that being said, try pampering her after a long day. Take her out to dinner and talk about whatever she wants. Or, stay in and draw a bath and give her a nice massage to show you care.
The objective is to try to be understanding of the entire wedding planning process.
Find ways to help out and relieve some of the stresses of planning, and when you can’t do anything right, show a little tenderness and pamper her. Make her feel like a queen at all times, and mark your calendars – it won’t last too long.
