No bridezilla here: Woman’s lengthy, considerate wedding party survey gets rave reviews

July 29, 2021

In a world where bridezilla stories dominate headlines, there’s one bride-to-be who has won over TikTok with her considerate wedding planning process. Fox News reports.

Talia Morales, 29, began her wedding planning journey when she got engaged to her fiancé Eulalio Wolfe, 30, in June.

After throwing herself into full planning mode to meet their December 2021 wedding date, Morales went viral on TikTok for the thoughtful bridesmaid questionnaire she sent out to her wedding party through Google Forms—a free online survey platform.

In a four-part series she shared from her handle, @onemorwolf  on June 23, Morales showed her followers that Google Forms can help brides keep track of their bridal party’s comfort levels and preferences in a way that she feels is a more organized communication style than group chats.

For her four bridesmaids and maid of honor, Morales started off her form by greeting her bridal party and sharing details about her wedding theme and colors.

The form then goes on to ask for:

  • Each person’s name,
  • Where each bridesmaid wants to stay the night before the wedding,
  • Whether she wants her hair and makeup professionally done,
  • What she anticipates her bridesmaid dress budget to be, and
  • Her preferred style of dress and shoes.

“I consider myself to be organized and detailed, and I have used Google Forms many times for different tasks in the past,” Morales told Fox News, adding, “Now that I am wedding planning, those skills truly radiate. Planning a wedding is no easy task and the more organized, prepared, and detailed, the better.”

Other notable parts of her survey included inspiration photos and availability requests that can help determine scheduling for group dress shopping and pre-wedding events. 

Morales, who is from Texas, also provided an area where her bridesmaids can share ideas for a bachelorette party destination; and which dates and times would be ideal.

At the end, Morales included an open-ended section where her bridal party can voice questions, comments or concerns.

“I understand that each of my bridesmaids [has] a different budget, style, and schedule,” Morales wrote to Fox News. “They will be standing next to me on one of the most memorable days of my life. The least I can do is be mindful of their spending and their time.” 

From the responses she received, Morales was able to create a subsequent survey, where her bridesmaids could vote on the choices that were narrowed down from the previous Google Form.

When it comes down to how her bridal party felt about her inclusive questionnaires, Morales said, “Honestly, I could not have chosen a better group of girls. They are supportive and dependable, and I am truly blessed to have their friendship.”

In total, Morales’ videos have garnered more than 298,350 views and has inspired thousands of commenters.

“Thank you for doing this!! Your bridesmaids are so lucky,” one TikTok user commented.

Another user wrote, “This is exactly what every bride should do. This is really considerate of your [bridesmaids’] budget, time, & schedule.”
