We're totally sick of the term Bridezilla, but there's no denying that as you grind your way through wedding planning, it can be helpful to have a term for that rage-filled, insane creature that bubbles up in your mind at times.
And now, courtesy of an offbeat reader and her fiance, we finally have our new term:
My biggest fear is becoming a Bridezilla of epic proportions. My wonderful fiance swears that I could never be one no matter how hard I try — and that Bridethulhu would be a much more fitting epithet. It made me laugh and things like that are one of the reasons I am marrying the beast.
There you have it! Old and busted: Bridezilla. The new hotness: BRIDETHULHU!
For those unfamiliar with H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu character, here's a little back-story courtesy of Wikipedia:
H. P. Lovecraft's initial short story, “The Call of Cthulhu”, was published in Weird Tales in 1928. Described as resembling “…an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature…. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque scaly body with rudimentary wings,” the imprisoned Cthulhu is apparently the source of constant anxiety for mankind at a subconscious level.
“The source of constant anxiety at a subconscious level” pretty much exactly sums up my wedding planning experience. BRIDETHULHU: BEGONE!
Comments on Bridethulhu is the new Bridezilla
We’re having little chrocheted bride and groom-thulhus! (groom-thulhu has been decorating my fiance’s office for years in a variety of tiny hats).
His sister is being totally awful about her wedding, so I said “I promise I won’t be a bridezilla like your sister… I’ll be bridethulhu!”
This shirt is MINE!
Us too on the crocheted cthulhus. Proof that great minds think alike!
My soon to be hubby always calls me cutethulu, and this post has made my day! Best believe I am buying one of these shirts as soon as I get paid on friday!
YES. Bridethulhu it is. That shirt will be mine. Oh yes. It will be mine.
Also, I present you with this YouTube, a love song to Cthluhu, to the tune of Hey There Delilah:
omg… I heart this… Sharing on Facebook… You just made my day… 😀
Most awesome creation ever. ^_^ All hail and sacrifice to the great Bridethulhu!
This is awesome!!!! I love it! LoL
Bridethulhu fever, it is on!
OMFG! My wedding is Steampunk Cthulhu and now all I want is that shirt. I enjoyed the posted but when I got to that shirt I squealed so loud my violin practicing child came to see what was wrong! Lol
Genuinely LOL – do they do Groomthulhu too?!
My lovely Mr has told me I’m Jekyll and Bride at the moment, one minute myself, next crazy maccrazyson 😉
Love it that you did these shirts. so cool
My friend was calling me Bridemothra before I got married because I was the complete opposite of a Bridezilla. I hated talking about the plans or how things were going and tried to play it down at every opportunity. “IT’S NOT A WEDDING” being the most said words out of my mouth! (It was a BBQ with a side of marriage)
Love it, I keep saying do you want to come to our party? or the wedding bit too? 😉
How unbelievably fitting for me. I’m not the kind to rage and yell at people about the wedding plans. I refuse to be a Bridezilla. Even with 4 days to go and everything being DIY! *continues pulling out hair* But you can bet you tushy that I am driving myself insane with anxiety. I’m not sleeping and barely eating. I’m just ready for it to get here so I can stop stressing and have fun. 🙂
I have just attended a friends wedding last month and reading this makes me laugh so much, she was exactly the same!
