Wedding Day Bliss Factors: One Way to Avoid Becoming a Bridezilla

My Mom just reminded me how for my seventh birthday all I wanted was a Dress ‘N Dazzle wedding set to play in. The day we went to pick it out, Toys ‘R Us was having a power outage and I thought for a few miserable moments that I wouldn’t get to be a bride for my birthday. But we were able to go into the store with a sales person who had a flash light and the crisis was averted. That was probably one of the best birthday presents I got as a kid.
