Every bride plans her big day differently – take this fun wedding quiz to find out what kind of bride you are!
Take a break from all that wedding planning and have a little fun with our wedding quiz, to discover your bridal style…
1) Your future mother-in-law has picked a gown that’s similar to the bridesmaid dresses. What do you do?
A) You’re not having a bridal party, so she has no bridesmaids to match anyway!
B) Say nothing. You really don’t mind enough to start a fight over it.
C) Ask your fiancé and your bridesmaids whether you should say something before making a decision.
D) Buy her a fascinator or jacket as a gift – it’ll mean she’ll look like part of the group but won’t match the bridesmaids exactly.
E) Tell her that she needs to change her dress.
2) Your florist calls to tell you that your dream wedding flowers won’t be in season for your big day. How do you react?
A) It’s fine, you’ll make paper flowers out of comic books to fill in the gaps.
B) You’re not that fussed about the flowers, so you tell her to surprise you on the day.
C) Panic and spend the next week looking at Pinterest trying to work out which flowers to choose instead.
D) You wish you’d known sooner, but work with your florist to find a similar-looking bloom that’s in budget.
E) Pay extra to have the flowers flown in from abroad. This is your dream bouquet, after all!
3) You’ve heard that your fiancé’s best man has got a particularly ‘lively’ speech planned. What do you do?
A) You’re not worried – you know that you and your maid of honour will get him back in your joint speech!
B) Decide to go with the flow and just cross your fingers that it won’t be too blue.
C) Worry about it for ages, and eventually ask your fiancé to ask the best man to tone it down.
D) You’re not too concerned, but you gently remind the best man that your elderly grandparents will be present!
E) Ask the best man to send the speech over to you so you can vet it. You don’t want to be embarrassed on your big day!
4) Which part of the wedding planning are you dreading the most?
A) Family members asking why you’re not having a ‘proper’ wedding.
B) All the unnecessary details. You could happily just elope or go to a registry office.
C) The seating plan and guest list. So many tough decisions!
D) Having to chase the RSVPs. You’re trying to be relaxed about the whole thing but it’s really starting to get on your nerves!
E) It being over! You only get to be a bride once, and you’re going to enjoy every minute of it.
5) What has your maid of honour organised for your hen party?
A) An awesome zombie-hunting experience in an abandoned mental hospital.
B) Nothing huge – a meal out and a couple of drinks in your local cocktail bar.
C) You have no idea! You’ve completely delegated to her because you already have too much on your plate.
D) A spa day with the family, then a night out with the girls. And you’ve asked her to keep the strippers away from nan!
E) You gave her a list of overseas villas to choose from so that you and the girls can jet off for the weekend. You have dressing gowns and matching t-shirts bought, too.
6) What’s your pre-wedding diet and exercise routine like?
A) You refuse to change anything about yourself for the wedding – except maybe getting a pre-wedding tattoo.
B) What on earth is a pre-wedding diet? Is that a thing?
C) You’ve tried Atkins, 5:2 and paleo, but you can’t seem to find a plan that works best for you. Now to try meal planning…
D) You’re eating a bit healthier and have signed up for the gym, but you’re not going to beat yourself up if you only lose a bit of weight.
E) You’ve hired a personal trainer to whip you into shape for the big day. There’s no point buying the dream dress if you’re not going to look perfect in it!
7) How did you find dress shopping?
A) You’re getting your dress made bespoke as you didn’t find anything unique enough.
B) Fine! You went to a local boutique with your fiancé and picked the fourth dress you tried on. No big deal.
C) You asked everyone’s opinions three times (including strangers in the shop!) and left without a dress because you needed time to think about it.
D) You had a great time with your bridesmaids, and visited three or four boutiques before finding ‘the one’.
E) You couldn’t choose between your two favourite designer gowns, so you bought both! It’s expected to have a costume change these days.

C) I’m not sure – what do
D) This should work for everyone
E) I just want it how I want it!
You’ve finished the test! Now see which letter you chose most often and see which type of bride you are, below!
Mostly As – you’re a Non-Traditional Bride
You’ve never been one of those girls who dreamt about a white wedding, and now your big day is here you’re determined to do it your way. Forget wedding traditions – you’re breaking every rule in the book, and having the time of your life doing it! Just remember that in your effort to have a unique, creative day that’s different from everyone else, you can sometimes burn yourself out (or go over budget!).
Mostly Bs – you’re a Laidback Bride
You’re so laidback you’re practically horizontal! All you care about is getting married to your fiancé, and you don’t see why people make such a huge fuss about wedding planning. That attitude is fantastic when it comes to keeping things in budget or having a relaxed wedding day, but don’t get so chilled about everything that you forget to make decisions! Get all your ducks in a row when it comes to the formalities, and then you can have the wedding you like without running into issues on the day.
Mostly Cs – you’re an Indecisive Bride
Calm down, bride-to-be! You’re putting so much pressure on your big day that you can’t make any decisions! Take some time out from wedding planning to remember that this is supposed to be a fun experience – have a spa day with your bridesmaids or have a dinner date with your fiancé where wedding talk is banned. Make a list of your top 5 priorities for the big day, and focus on putting your energy into those decisions. Everything else can be delegated or just isn’t as important.
Mostly Ds – you’re a Balanced Bride
Congratulations! You’re taking wedding planning in your stride, without letting it stress you out too much or take over your life. Your wedding is important to you, and know what you want for the big day, but you’re happy to compromise when it comes to the little details. After all, the only thing that matters is you’re marrying the love of your life!
Mostly Es – you’re a Perfectionist Bride
You’ve been dreaming of this day for a long time, and now it’s here you want to make sure everything is picture-perfect, from the Instagram-worthy bridesmaid dresses to the crystal centrepieces you saw on Pinterest. However, in your quest for perfection you can sometimes ruffle some feathers when things don’t go your way! Relax a little – it’s not worth ruining friendships over, and your focus should be on celebrating your love.
