Bride Brain, defined...(you are not immune!!!)

I was reading Weddingbee this morning, (which is totally out of the ordinary a normal beginning to my work day) when I came across the lovely Miss Ladyfingers' post on Bride Brain! It seems this is an issue that most brides face at varying points in wedding planning. I love the post and just wanted to share the Urban Dictionary definition she feature as a supplement to my previous BB post.

Bride Brain [’ˈbrīd’-’ˈbrān’]:
A less invasive, but more expensive version of a frontal lobotomy. Experienced by most brides, as they enter a catatonic state which renders them incapable of sustaining any thought or conversation that does not involve cake, caterers, flowers, wedding dress designers, Chinese wedding dress knock-off designers, updos, hair pieces, color schemes, wedding themes, and personalized M&M’s.

Bride Brain symptoms include, but are not limited to, driving erratically because they can’t stop staring at their shiny diamond ring; being amused by the resentment of all their single girlfriends, rewinding songs several hundred times while imagining themselves walking down the aisle, and starvation induced bitchiness which is generally followed by late night binging at a Dairy Queen. (Note that this can only occur outside of the bride’s native geographic area, where they can’t possibly run into anyone they know.)

Symptoms are ordinarily well controlled with valium, alcohol and endless hours of watching youtube “first dance” videos.

Thanks, Miss Ladyfingers! Any brides out there dealing with some BB lately? Unfortunately, I don't have any DQs next to me, but I have my trusty cupcake bakery to deal with the symptoms (I may or may not have brought a half dozen home from work with me yesterday).
