* ''Website/NotAlwaysRomantic'' has it all; Bridezillas, Groomzillas, and Mother-of-Groom-zillas. The most famous story involves a Bridezilla who was ''spectacularly'' insensitive to her little sister (You got pregnant? You can't be a bridesmaid, you're too fat. You miscarried? Oh, I guess you can be in the wedding since you're not fat anymore) gets slapped down by her mother, who refuses to pay for the wedding and gets it cancelled.

Bridezilla is a hideous [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent reptilian creature]] that a bride seemingly morphs into under the stress of wedding arrangements and unrealistic expectations, resulting in escalating demands and screeching outbursts about insignificant problems. The woman in question might be a lovely person any other time (after all, someone ''is'' willingly marrying her...okay, that doesn't say much), but the stress of planning The Perfect Wedding has a nasty habit of bringing out the worst in people. The classic Bridezilla is the woman who believes the wedding is Her Day, meaning all revolt must be squelched and all whims indulged.

* In ''Bollywood/BandBaajaBaaraat'', wedding planners Bitoo and Shruti get reunited after their professional (and somewhat sentimental) break-up because they are hired by
a very rich and very spoiled heiress, who loved their former joint work and want them to do the same for her, and in fact her main condition for hiring them was that they have to do it together or not getting the job at all; both accept since their separate ventures have left full of debt. Later, they have to convince the girl against calling off the whole event in the middle of the celebrations for the simple reason that the Bollywood star hired for a dancing number has a last-hour accident and couldn't do his show.
** Note that despite their profession, Bitoo and Shruti only seemed to get confronted with bridezilla antics at this point: in their "Rising star" and "fast decadence" montages their professional troubles were less related with demanding clients and more with their ability to getting and provide them.

* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'':
** Elliot. After her first proposal didn't go as perfectly as she had always dreamed (the ring was too small, but otherwise no disaster), she forced him to take it back and repeat it in front of all her friends, according to her specific instructions. The rest of the engagement went similarly by annoying her fiance and maid of honor with her obsessive controlling of the wedding arrangements and her outbursts at minor disasters (like the wrong font on the invitations).
** Carla in the same series had it to a lesser degree, especially when the ceremony didn't go quite as planned. The groom didn't even make it to the ceremony.
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'':
** Chloe calls herself Bridezilla on her wedding day, but it is subverted as she is nice and bright as ever.
** Oliver later says [[spoiler:Doomsday]] gives a whole new meaning to "Bridezilla" after it [[spoiler:crashes the wedding, severely wounding Jimmy and kidnapping Chloe]].
* ''Series/TrueBlood'': May Dionysus have mercy on your soul if you spoil Maryann's special day.
* In ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'', Sabrina became a literal bridezilla in one episode, when, following the advice of Cinderella, she became extremely demanding, causing her lower body to change into that of a dragon and making her breathe fire. It reached the point that Cinderella barely notices or cares that Prince Charming left years ago because he was sick of her behavior, and all she does is go around in her wedding dress reliving the memories. While Sabrina has her epiphany, all Cinderella cares about is showing her the wedding album.
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'':
** Monica had a few freak outs about her wedding ceremony, but actually mostly averted the trope. It started when she wanted to celebrate her engagement with her friends, but felt that Rachel was stealing her thunder (which, truthfully, with her characteristic [[{{ItsAllAboutMe}} I'm-not-getting-married-and-Monica-is whining]], Rachel was). Monica also wanted to spend enormous amount of money, and, though Chandler would be okay with it for her sake, she decided to keep it low-key. Considering how much of a perfectionist and obsessed with getting married Monica is, she actually held herself together quite well. Chandler, however, laughs at her when she points it out to him. Numerous episodes also make it clear that, despite her craziness, she values her future with Chandler more than the wedding. She gives up her perfect wedding dress so he can have his dream band, changes times around so Joey's parents can come, and is remarkably calm about the hijinks on the day.
--->'''Monica:''' I don't want a big fancy wedding, I want everything that you just said. I want a marriage.
** ''Phoebe'''s wedding, on the other hand, causes Monica to become Maid-of-Honor-Zilla. She wants everything to be perfect--even toilet pauses must be scheduled. Rachel saw this coming a mile away when she and Phoebe agreed to let Rachel be Monica's Maid of Honor.
--->'''Rachel:''' (''after Phoebe laughs from seeing Monica in full Bridezilla mode'') You laugh now. She's going to be yours.
* Donna Noble in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' Christmas Special "The Runaway Bride" - although in her case, it was probably justified, as the first thing to go wrong was her disappearing from the church as she was walking down the aisle and materializing in an alien spaceship and it all went downhill from there.

Bridezilla is a hideous [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent reptilian creature]] that a bride seemingly morphs into under the stress of wedding arrangements and unrealistic expectations, resulting in escalating demands and screeching outbursts about insignificant problems.

The classic Bridezilla is the woman who believes the wedding is Her Day, meaning all revolt must be squelched and all whims indulged.

to:

Bridezilla is a hideous [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent reptilian creature]] that a bride seemingly morphs into under the stress of wedding arrangements and unrealistic expectations, resulting in escalating demands and screeching outbursts about insignificant problems. The woman in question might be a lovely person any other time (after all, someone ''is'' willingly marrying her...ok okay, that doesn't say much), but the stress of planning The Perfect Wedding has a nasty habit of bringing out the worst in people. The classic Bridezilla is the woman who believes the wedding is Her Day, meaning all revolt must be squelched and all whims indulged.

* One story features a Canadian woman who [[https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/bride-canceled-her-wedding-guests-204000103.html tweeted the story]] of how she and her fiancé came up short of their dream wedding and the bride went as far as to ask all her guests to pay an attendance fee of $1,500 to help fund the wedding. When no one would spare any money, the bride went ballistic, especially after her fiancé suggested a cheap Vegas wedding and her maid of honor insisted going by the budget, going as far as to accuse them all of being selfish. Eventually her fiancé left her and she went backpacking while blaming her friends and family for ruining her relationship and wedding.
