(CBS News) Have a bridezilla on your hands? Don't fret: The kind folks at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have provided a handy guide to help you survive the bouquets, long-winded speeches and blushing brides on a wedding day.

The CDC's Wedding Day Survival Guide is similar to the Zombie Survival Guide that it released last year. A bit tongue-in-cheek, the government agency provides tips on how to plan for an emergency like a hurricane during a wedding ceremony or an overly emotional bride.

End of the world comes May 21st, Harold Camping says: CDC focused on zombie attack

"You never know when Bridezilla might pop up," the CDC's Caitlin Shockey writes. "When dealing with an emotional bride, try to remember your loved one is probably stressed out and will soon return to her caring self after the wedding is over. Be supportive and have some bottled water from your emergency kit and a box of chocolate on hand."

Beneath all the sass, there are some useful tips that could prove helpful, like creating a first aid kit with water, medications, extra cash and important documents to be prepared for any scenario and bringing extra umbrellas in case of a downpour.

But, not everyone is laughing. When asked about the guide on CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien" on Wednesday morning, actor Danny Glover had some choice words for the CDC. Admittedly, he didn't get the joke at first, according to Politico.

"The CDC has better things to do," he told O'Brien on the show.

Katie J.M. Baker from Jezebel also found the CDC's post sexist, adding that the advice "perpetuates every single sexist wedding stereotype in the book."

"I get enough wedding-centric b------- from magazines, television, movies and my grandparents. Do I really need to get it from the government, too?" she pondered.
