There is no reason for this "Groomzila" to reduce people to tears to get what he wants. I have worked in customer service for a longtime, while I get very frustrated by the current lack of professionalism in the industry his intitled attitude is inappropriate. Try being nice for a while.

This is true, but having worked in customer service as well, I can tell you that today's customer service is pitiful, and many times there is no other option than to get more agressive with your position. I always start out nice when it comes to CS people because I know what it was like...but when they don't even try to help is when I start getting upset.

I just wonder what's in store for the bride down the road if he is exhibiting this much controlling behavior now, such as choosing the styles of the bridesmaid's dress and trying to choose her wedding dress as well. Scary.

When I watch Bridezilla I'm convinced that people have lost their minds. There's this weird mindset that because you're getting married everyone in the world should suck up to you and put up with outrageous behavior. Most people eventually get married--it's like having a birthday. It doesn't make you quenn (or king) of the world!!

I personally think that David is THE MAN!!!! I wish my husband would have done something anything or in this case EVERYTHING for our wedding.......Weddings are alot of money and if you do not set your standards & expectations high from the get go you risk ending up with a crappy wedding and still having to pay all that money for it..........all i can say is you go David and Bethany count your blessings girl this is a GOOD man and SEXY may I add!
Oh and David if you need some extra $$$ for the wedding may I suggest bumper stickers with your quote on it........"I do have an attitude, but I don't think I'm mean!"
Congratulations and can I be invited to this wedding (I love free food)!

Good Luck to the bride!

I hope these people are lavishing as much attention on their relationships as they are lavishing on the party.

I would personally think that a man who was willing to do this would be a great husband. If you read the article, it says he has owned an event coordinating business for quite some time. I'm sure he is plenty capable. If somebody cried because his questions regarding the most important day of his life were too tough for them, then chances are that this vendor should choose a different career path. Gosh, if you break down at an interview, how could you be expected to photographically monitor a $50,000 party?! Good for that guy, that he is making sure he gets what he pays for. She's a lucky gal!

People focus too much attention on the wedding and not nearly enough on "am I compatible for life with this person?"

I think I'll get one of those $99 dresses from David's, serve cake and punch and call it a day when I get married.

I was castigated in 2001 when I wanted to participate in planning my wedding, knowing full well it was the "bride's day" but certainly not all about the bride. Nice to see I was just a little ahead of my time, and thankfully, most of the stuff that I was involved in ended up working out perfectly, unlike some of the other stuff!

Good for you Chuck. I bet your Bride loved it too, didn't she? Other women seem to be very upset about this. Maybe a little jealousy ? Your Bride and Bethany seem like very lucky women.

I'd love to hear the photographer's side of the story- what did he do to reduce her to tears? I can't think of any instance where that is necessary. If you are not getting what you want, walk away and go somewhere else. This guy gets his jollies out of controlling and hurting people, and someone wants to spend a lifetime with him? She'd better find a good divorce lawyer now, if he lets her use a phone to call one. After the marriage, I hope she doesn't want to pick out her own clothes, choose her own hair style, choose her own friends...

Great point. Bride-to-be needs to get some perspective on this thug and run. This so-called contest seems to have backfired in a horrible, Jerry Springer way.
