Being invited to attend your friend’s wedding is a huge honour.
It shares how much they love you, and want you to be involved with one of their biggest days.
So to threaten to remove a friend from the event is a big deal. Naturally, a guest would have had to behave pretty badly to deserve that, right?
Well, not always.
In fact, one bride threatening to eject a friend from her wedding has not received the reaction she hoped for.
Talking about the rejection on Reddit, the fed-up guest wrote: “I have long, blonde hair in very good condition. It took me years to learn how to care for my hair so they look their best and to keep them in this condition. Basically – lots of time, effort and money for hair products were invested.”
But ahead of the wedding, things have turned sour as the bride has made a – frankly ridiculous – request about her hair.
“Now my friend, who has almost identical hair colour to me, but pixie haircut and in worse condition, asked me to cut my hair before the wedding or at least dye them,” the post continues.
“She says that if I stand near her on wedding photos, she will look bad in comparison and that it should be her day.
“I understand that guests shouldn’t overdress and I really do love her, we had many years of close friendship, but as silly as it sounds, I also love my hair.
“I know hair can grow back and I could lose the friendship forever if I don’t listen to her. But the idea of cutting my hair or dyeing and worsening their condition, having invested so much, just saddens me.
“I told her I need to think about it, but she said if I even need to think, tells her how little she means to me and she needs to think again if I should be invited in this case.
“Am I the a***ole for wanting to keep my hair as they are? Edit, for clarification: The bride has already rejected the idea of me putting my hair in an updo/braid. I can’t wear a wig because my hair is too long for that (about 1.5m, which is almost as long as I am tall).”
Unsurprisingly, people didn’t feel particularly supportive of the bride in the comments.
One wrote: “Your hair is your hair, and nobody has the right to demand you change it for anything.
“Very saddening that your pal thinks being a bride gives her the power to make that demand and is ready to ruin your friendship over such a small issue.
“Oh and as for the “shows how little I mean to you” passive-aggressive b.s. – what does her even considering asking that and making these threats say about how little YOU mean to HER??”
Another said: “I’d just skip the wedding entirely at that point. Not worth the effort.”
“Yes, this is absurd! Who ARE these people?! I swear, weddings make people crazy,” a third added.
