Bride Asks Redheaded Bridesmaid to Color Hair so She Doesnt Clash With Color Scheme
The audacity of some brides is turning out to be too much to handle
Brides these days have some real guts to make some of the absurd demands they tend to make of their bridal party.
One bride-to-be took to Reddit to complain because her redheaded bridesmaid wouldn’t dye her hair or wear a wig for her wedding day duties. The bride insisted that the woman’s hair will “clash” with the color scheme and completely “destroy the wedding photos.”
Last week, Reddit user Dreamdaythrowaway took to the social forum to voice her issues in a post that has since gone viral with over 4,400 upvotes and 5,500 comments.
To make matters worse the bridesmaid is the woman’s cousin. Anyway, the 24-year-old began by claiming that her cousin Ella had no respect for her “blue and green peacock theme” wedding in June.
Apparently, guests have agreed to “follow this color scheme” without issue, 26-year-old Ella refuses to comply with the bride’s hopes of toning down her “natural bright ginger hair” for the nuptials.
She said, “I would never ask someone to permanently change their hair for my wedding, I know that would be bonkers so I suggested some temporary hair dye, but Ella argued that she has been growing her hair for 6 years and doesn’t want to risk the color not washing out,” the Redditor explained. “I thought this was ridiculous because it literally says washes out in like 14 washes. But Ella says because her hair is completely natural color it might take strongly to her hair.”
Negotiating, the bride suggested a wig, pointing out that the wedding will be “one single day” and that there are some “amazing wigs” on the market nowadays – but Ella refused.
“She said she would feel self-conscious and weird wearing a wig and that because her hair is butt length that it might sit weird on her head. I really don’t want to come across as a bridezilla, but butt length flaming red hair will destroy the wedding photos, and ruin the color scheme completely.”
She continued to say, “I’m at a loss, I can’t cut her from the wedding because my mom would murder me but I can’t have f—-ing Merida ruining the photos.” Apparently that is reference to the flame-haired princess from Disney’s 2012 movie “Brave.”
In two follow-up posts, the bride-to-be admitted that she was in the wrong for her ridiculous request, which to her surprise drove her cousin to drop out of the wedding. In the most recent update, the author said that she and her cousin “will be working to reach a compromise” before the June wedding day.
That’s big of the cousin.
In the grand scheme of her upcoming wedding and marriage, other critics more harshly blasted the author for her entitled perspective.
Many agreed it was absurdly inappropriate and rude to ask a bridal party member to alter their appearance, wagering that the author was likely envious of Ella’s exotic looks.
“I think you don’t realize how impossible what you’re asking is. I have just about this color hair and I will never die it, because it is very difficult to get back to the same color,” one user said. “Wigs are hot, sweaty and uncomfortable, and you will seem like a giant [expletive] to everyone who asks what happened to her beautiful red hair and she says “oh the bride thought I would ruin pictures.”
More humorously, many Redditors suggested that the author is just jealous…
