      You're probably a great relief to work with after some of the couplezillas she's inevitably seen. The last real doozy of a story I heard was the groom who insisted that they MUST have an aisle runner because they were paying $10,000 for the wedding and had to have everything just so.

      Then, no they're not wrong at all, they're being a couplezilla.

      I say.. Couplezilla go ahead and embrace your zilla-ness. This is the stuff that makes great wedding horror stories...
