A post on a Facebook group dedicated to wedding shaming is making the rounds, sparking a conversation about just how much a wedding guest should change in order to make the bride happy on her wedding day.
In particular, this bride made demands on a guest with tattoos and colored hair to cover up those tattoos and change the color of her hair so it looks “natural.”
“We’ve put a lot of work into our theme and I’m sorry but your look clashes with it. Even if you just put some spray or something on your hair for the night,” the bride wrote to the guest in the text. “I just want it to all look perfect and I can send you some ideas like nice long sleeve dresses for you to wear or just wear a jacket.”
The wedding guest responded, explaining that the wedding is in the summer, so it would probably be really uncomfortable to wear sleeves. But she seems amenable even though the request is totally unreasonable.
However, the bride wasn’t satisfied.
“I know it’s hot, but it’s my one day so if you can’t suck it up, I feel like you don’t really care about me and probably shouldn’t come. I’m not asking much, and it’s not my fault you get hot. Buy some makeup for your tattoos then if you want to be at my wedding, you’ll figure it out,” she said. “If you turn up on the day without anything covered, you won’t be let in to the venue.”
The guest explained that tattoo cover makeup was really expensive, and she had just been in a car accident so she was struggling financially: ‘I just had a car accident so I’m going to be struggling for the next couple of months. Like I know this isn’t until December but you know what this has been like for us. I’m not in your wedding party so I just don’t think this is fair to ask.”
“Yeah I know you had an accident but your money issues aren’t my problem,” the bride said. “If you want to be there, you will figure it out. It doesn’t matter that you’re not in the wedding party, you’ll still be in the photos and you will ruin them. You’re very pretty normally but your look doesn’t work for my wedding and it is very fair to ask you to do something simple so that my day is perfect.”
Folks responded to this bridezilla’s post, saying that if she just cares about how her wedding looks, she should hire fake people to be models: “You invited people to your wedding to celebrate a special day with people who you love. If you only care about the look, which it’s clear that’s all she cares about, just hire some plain a** people to pretend to be your guests.”
Hopefully this guest will say no thank you, because all of this is truly absurd.
