We often hear tales about bridesmaids struggling to find the right dress for the wedding, or brides who demand concessions from their friends when it comes to hair or outfits.

But the monstrous and invasive wedding demands aren't limited to bridesmaids, there are groomsmen who also face surprising dress code requirements and power struggles ahead of the ceremony.

In a recent post on the Am I The A*shole subreddit, a groomsman asked if he's wrong for not wanting to shave his beard or wear glasses at the wedding.

Long time lurker... first post yay

OP kicked off the post by sharing that his sister is getting married soon, and he's been asked to grow his beard long, shave it, or wear glasses to the wedding.

So, a close family member is getting married soon. I have been told to either grow my beard out a lot, or shave it completely for the wedding. Or the option of wearing glasses that I only use while looking at classroom boards from far away, while sitting. The moment before I stand to walk around, I remove my glasses. I only use them in the classroom while sitting.

OP went on to share that the reason behind this request is that he apparently resembles the groom, so slightly altering his appearance would count as a "wedding present" to the couple.

I have been told to do this as their "wedding present". Also because a very old family member recently mistook the groom for myself. I have not seen this family member for a long time. I live several hours away from most of the family anyway. I don't see them too often, but will during the wedding. I am a member of the groomsmen. I don't feel it is okay to strongly request this, to the point of being overly upset if I choose to not follow their request.
