a) One glass after work is a lovely way to unwind
b) I need to sample wines for the wedding so I am claiming this as research
c) You are doing midweek runs to the bottle bank
3 – You organise a planning meeting with the bridesmaids for this Friday, but 1 of them cant make it. You think :
a) That’s ok. It was short notice

If you answered mostly A’s : You a Zen bride. So chilled people are probably worried that you are not worried. You know whatever happens you can take it all in your stride and nothing will phase you.
If you answered mostly B’s : You are doing fine. Just remember to decompress every now and then. A weekend off from planning and keeping in mind why you are doing this in the first place should help ease off those niggles. You are doing fine.
If you answered mostly C’s : Uh-oh. Now don’t worry. Yes, you are a Bridezilla and yes you are likely scaring everyone around you – however its not too late. You need help so, get in touch with 1500 Photography now and let us take some of the strain out of your planning
