Something happens to some brides -- and more than a few grooms -- in the weeks and months leading up to their big day. The nicest of people, who wouldn't ordinarily ask you to move your foot if it was crushing theirs by mistake, suddenly become filled with this powerful desire to control every little aspect of their day.
