"Do unto others as you would have others do unto you"
With all the wedding shows that feature brides at their worst, it's important to remember that these shows are produced and I'm hoping these women are asked by producers to be horribly mean to vendors and family members. You have to assume that they are acting otherwise why would their fiances want to marry them.
When planning your wedding, assuming you're not being taped for a television show, remember that you should treat people with respect and as you would like to be treated. Just because you're a bride doesn't mean (no pun intended) that you are allowed to treat people like they are your personal wedding servants. And this includes your fiance, parents, vendors and bridesmaids.
Nothing happened where I can share a story to get this point across. I was just watching TV and saw an ad for one of these wedding reality shows and felt the need to write a post on the subject.
