Novelty Mints, Zilla Pills, Bring Lighthearted Humor to Nervous Brides and Bridal Parties

Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

HILTON HEAD, S.C., Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Linda Smreczak has been a bridal consultant in Hilton Head, South Carolina, for ten years. Through the years, she's seen her fair share of nervous brides.

"Every bride has a 'zilla' moment," said Smreczak, owner of Amanda Rose Weddings. "There's a lot of pressure to create the perfect day. Whether it's the demands of scheduling, or aiming for perfection, something eventually takes them over the edge."

One evening, after an especially taxing afternoon with a bride-to-be and her mother, Linda turned to her associate, Ellen Starling and said, "Somebody needs to take a chill pill."

"Not a chill pill," said Starling, "a Zilla Pill!"

What began as funny banter between co-workers turned into a humorous product for brides, family members, and their friends.

Zilla Pills are not a drug. They're white peppermints packaged in a novelty tin with the image of a frazzled bride on the lid. Amanda Rose Weddings, Smreczak's company, sells Zilla Pills (http://www.zillapills.com) through its website and retail outlets.

Could a Zilla Pill actually diffuse a bothered bride? "Dispensed in the right manner they certainly could change their mood, perhaps take the edge off," said Smreczak. "I suggest that friends keep a tin handy. A bride is more receptive to humor coming from a close friend or family member - or perhaps a fiance."

Smreczak credits the number of reality TV wedding shows for making the public more aware of the pressures involved in planning a wedding. "The work is very rewarding and emotionally meaningful. But there are those 'delicate' moments," said Smreczak. "Zilla Pills are our way of adding a bit of whimsy to the wedding process – it's a way to put a smile on everyone's face."

Zilla Pills are great gag gifts for bachelor or bachelorette parties, or for necessity baskets distributed on the wedding day. The cost for a single tin is $4.95; a minimum order of five is required. Zilla Pills are sold at boutiques, party stores, and major wedding websites. For more information, please visit http://www.zillapills.com or call (843) 757-9205.
