A bride may ask many things of her bridesmaids, aka her best friends – to have their makeup a certain way, to wear a specific style of dress, to do whatever she wants on her hen do, but this week on bride made headlines for asking her bridesmaid to change her hair colour!
The bridesmaid in question is a natural redhead and said she received an email from the bride-to-be asking that she go brunette to fit in with the other maids. The redhead bridesmaid went on to reddit to tell her story:
"So I've known my friend, who I'll refer to as Ella, since I was a child as she's the daughter of family friends but we've only become close in the past 2 or 3 years. She recently became engaged, and I readily accepted her offer to be part of her bridal party. Yesterday morning I received an email from Ella, which went: "You'll need to dye your hair for the day, I'll take you to my hairdresser and cover the cost :) I'm a natural ginger, so it's not like I have an outrageous hair colour, although Ella and her other bridesmaids are all brunettes.
"I texted Ella about it, she told me my hair would clash with the wedding colours and that brides get a veto over pretty much every aspect of her bridesmaids' appearances. She also mentioned my hair is quite 'attention-grabbing' and I'd take away from the cohesiveness of the group. I told her I wasn't comfortable dying my hair. She said she'd get back to me but hoped I'd reconsider."
Is this the most outrageous bridezilla request you’ve ever heard about? Is the bride out of order asking her friend to change her hair colour for her wedding day?
