One woman was left baffled when her soon-to-he-married sister insisted she changed her hair colour and style just for her big day.
Posting on Reddit’s AITA group, which debates people’s dilemmas, an anonymous user outlined her wedding nightmare.
“My younger sister (I'm 24, she's 20) just got engaged and they already found a beach venue they liked and have chosen a date for next summer. My sister told me she wants the bridesmaids, maid of honour, our mother and me (as her family) to have the same hairstyle,” she explained.
“The wedding party and my mother and sister are all naturally blonde already and they further dye their hair to be platinum. They have long hair already too.
“Since my hair is short and black, I would have to forgo haircuts for the next 12 months so my hair would be long enough to get extensions sewn in and I would have to spend time and money to get it bleached from black to platinum too. I don't want to wreck my hair by bleaching it and by getting a head full of extensions, I don't think I would look good with platinum hair and I don't want to give up haircuts for a year and walk around with a mullet and other awkward styles. I told my sister I'm not changing my hair for her wedding.”
However, it was the anonymous poster that was told she was being unreasonable by her family.
“My sister yelled at me and sent me an angry email,” the anonymous poster wrote. “My mother sided with my sister and says I am not being supportive and putting my wants ahead of hers on my sister's day. My father just says to listen to my sister and mother.
However, the good people of Reddit said the girl in question is not being selfish by refusing to dye her hair.
“This is just unreal, the poor individual isn't even in the bridal party!! That family, Dad included, are total a***s,” one person wrote.
“Why can’t the hairstyle of the day be yours? They can all cut their hair and dye it dark,” another questioned. “Simply tell her humans are not accessories. I am not changing my entire look, spending over a year on it, for you to have a colour coded accessory bridal photos.
“I’m happy to stay out of the pictures. If you prefer I will not attend. But I am absolutely not drastically modifying myself for you.”
“Bridal party or not, you don’t get to control other people’s bodies,” a third person said. “Even if she was in the bridal party, this would still be unreasonable.”
We’ve honestly never heard of anything weirder.
