Every week there seems to be a new horror story about the actions of a bridezilla wreaking havoc in the lead-up to her wedding. Now, one unfortunate woman has asked the internet for advice after she her plan to take a bride to court after she withdrew her invitation because she had to cut her hair for health reasons.
Writing in Reddit's Am I The A**hole thread, the anonymous woman spoke about her friend’s wedding for which she had to buy more than $700 (£508.94) in clothes for the big day which will go unused.
The bride wanted “specific hairstyles” for her three day wedding. However, the woman who posted the story revealed her hair “started to deteriorate” in March and due to health reasons that left her hair “falling out in chunks,” she made the difficult decision to cut her hair two months later.
She said: “I told the bride about my decision two weeks before the wedding and she didn’t say anything bad. The following week, she came over to my house and when she was about to leave, she brought up that she was concerned about my haircut and I told her it would look good even though I wouldn’t be uniform with the other bridesmaids.”
The poor bridesmaid-to-be then posted a sassy message she received from the bride the day after she saw the state of her friend’s hair.
The message, which was sent three days before the wedding, reads: "After our recent conversations, I’d like to remind you of my boundaries: I’ve been very accommodating and graceful, but I can’t allow you to disrespect me.
"As you know, my wedding has been something I’ve dreamt of for many years. [Husband] and I have invested a lot of money into the video and photos of this day and as we reflect on this day in the further we want to see our vision reflected in the memories.
"Since I asked each of you to be bridesmaid in 2019, I’ve been very clearly and very communicative in my request. The timing of your decision to cut your hair and not income in advance is very upsetting to me. I would have felt respected if you had communicated with me more than a week prior to the wedding, so we could have worked together to find a collaborative solution.
"Your inconsistencies have concerned me and while I sympathise with your health concerns, I’m not willing to compromise my vision to accommodate you (or anyone else) when you have informed me in advance and we could have found a better solution. Since this something you can no longer fully commit to, I need you to please step down from participating in my wedding.”
The ex-bridesmaid then sent the bride and her husband-to-be an invoice for the price of the dresses and shoes for the wedding she was no longer invited. The bride also has possession of one of the dresses. Neither replied, and the Reddit poster is now taking both to court.
She added: "When I agreed to be her bridesmaid I was more than willing to oblige with what she asked even if at times it was a lot of time and money."
Reddit users came out in support of the woman, with many labelling the bride as the a**hole.
One user said: "Hair loss wasn't OPs fault, but she tried her best to fix it. Bride didn't even offer an alternative of a wig. She went full nuclear (get out) option. So she breached and OP had costs associated that she wouldn't have otherwise had."
Another person wrote: "I just can’t get past that her hair was falling out because of a health condition and Zilla is like, don’t care if you die, you are selfish for cutting your hair. What in the actual duck!
While a third shared: "OP you are better off without. I am so sorry that this happened to you and hope your health improves soon. Why are some brides so obsessed with their friends hair/weight/tan for a ‘vision’ and not just honoured to have great friends that are happy to stand with them."
