Sometimes completely normal people will turn into selfish, unreasonable nightmares the day they start planning a wedding. It's wild to watch, but it happens to the best of us--friends, family, and acquaintances transform right before our eyes. A bridezilla in action is a sight to behold--terrifying, manipulative and full of drunk tears.
When one bridezilla popped out into the "Am I the As*hole?" section of Reddit to ask if she was wrong to try to hide her cousin's hair to match her peacock color scheme, nobody was on her side. For the record, if you've come to a point where you're asking people to alter their physical appearance for your wedding day, you need to sit down and take a long look at your life.
My 24 f bridesmaid / cousin Ella 26 f is to be in my wedding party in June. The ongoing issue is that my wedding has a blue and green peacock theme and guests have been asked to follow this colour scheme with their clothes. Hair wasn't originally included at all in the colour scheme but my cousin Ella has natural bright ginger hair.
I would never ask someone to permanantly 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 colour not washing out. I thought this was ridiculous because it literally says washes out in like 14 washes. But Ella says because her hair is completely natural colour it might take strongly to her hair.
So I gave up on that avenue and suggested a wig, it is 1 day 1 single day and there are some amazing wigs these days, I had a look on Instagram and you wouldn't even be able to tell. But 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. So she won't dye it, and won't cover it up. 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 colour scheme completely.
Im at a loss, I can't cut her from the wedding because my mom would murder me but I can't have freaking Merida ruining the photos, AITA for asking this of her for just 1 single day?
tl;dr bridesmaid has flaming red hair and refusing to hide it for one single day for my wedding that has a colour scheme it will clash with aita
