Social Fiction Project - "Bridezilla"

It finally happened – after 5 long years of dating, he popped the big question: Kaitlyn and Dom were officially engaged! The wedding was to be held on May 24 of 2014, so much to do yet so little time.


            With only 4 months left until the wedding, Kaitlyn was starting to stress out.

“Dom, there’s only a few months left and I haven’t even found my wedding dress! This is insane, the wedding will never be ready in time!” screamed Kaitlyn.

“Honey, it’ll be fine. We still have tons of time,” he replied calmly.

“Dom! Do you even know how hard it is to find the perfect wedding dress? DO YOU?!” she exclaimed as she flew around the kitchen like an uncaged bird.

“Kaitlyn, calm down… We can go dress shopping this afternoon if you’d like,” he said as he continued scrolling through his twitter feed.

“No, we have to go right now. If I don’t find a dress by the end of the day, I am going to lose my mind!”

            Dom rolled his eyes, HE was going to lose his mind by the end of the day. Kaitlyn grabbed the keys and off they went to David’s Bridal Shop.


“How about this one?” Dom said, holding up a very large, very poufy dress.

“That’s ugly, Dom.”

“Okay, uh, well how about this one?” he said as he grabbed another dress blindly off the rack.

“No, that is so tacky. It is not my style at all.” Kaitlyn sighed.

            After 3 hours and 2 more dress shops, Kaitlyn finally found the dress for her. It was a beautiful long, flowy white dress with a silk sash around the middle – extremely simple, yet elegant. It fit her like a glove, no alterations needed (what a miracle). Dom thought the worst of Kaitlyn’s bridezilla craziness was over, but boy was he wrong.


“Babe, we need to make confetti.” Kaitlyn said one early Saturday morning.

“Make? Why can’t we just buy it like every other normal couple?”
“Because I want it to be hand-cut into perfect right triangles, silly.”

“You’re kidding, right? Please tell me you are kidding.” Dom asked in disbelief.

“Of course I’m not kidding! You better get started if you want to finish it in time - we’re on a tight schedule now. Next are the handwritten wedding invitations and then you’ll be licking all the envelopes closed of course.”

            Dom couldn’t believe his ears, was this really the woman he asked to marry him? This woman was sounding a lot like one of those crazy bridezillas you see on TLC, but he gave her the benefit of the doubt and blamed it on the stress of the wedding.

{Four months later}

“I do,” said a teary-eyed Dom.
Kaitlyn was crying so hard, she practically had to spit the words out, “I.. I do..”

“You may kiss the bride!” said the pastor as he threw his hands up in celebration.

            Everyone cheered and Dom realized that yes, this was indeed the woman of his dreams and he was about to spend the rest of his life with her.

The end.
