Although much has been written about the state of mind of women who become wives, the psychology of a woman who is moving from identifying as single to identifying as a bride has been given little consideration. This thesis looks at the 20th- to 21st-century cultural phenomenon of the Bridezilla, a woman who is seemingly obsessed with the planning of her wedding day, often at the expense of her relationships and wellbeing. A heuristic research methodology has been implemented to examine how, through both a depth psychological perspective and a self-psychological perspective, a clinician might conceptualize this experience in the therapeutic milieu.
