A woman has revealed that her bridezilla sister kicked her out of her wedding after she cut her hair — despite the fact that she had initially approved of the new ‘do.
Reddit user Anonaccount623 shared her story on both the ‘Bridezillas’ and ‘AmItheA**hole’ subreddits, explaining that her sister told her she had to get extensions or she would no longer be welcome in her bridal party.
‘My sister got angry at me for cutting my hair, despite her telling me I could, and threatened to kick me out of the wedding,’ she wrote in the headline.
Bridezilla? Reddit user Anonaccount623 revealed her sister kicked her out of her wedding after she cut off 14 inches of her hair, but she insisted that her sibling approved the chop
The unnamed woman said her sister is getting married in a week and a half, but stressed that she never said anything about having an issue with her bridesmaids cutting their hair before her big day.
‘When she chose her bridesmaids, she stated she would rather us not have unnatural colored hair, just in case it clashes with her dresses (a little dumb but still pretty understandable) but other than that, she didn’t care what we did,’ the Reddit user explained.
‘I decided to cut my pretty long, lower back hitting hair into a pretty short, shoulder length cut and donate the heavy, 14 inches of hair.’
The woman noted that she told her sister she was cutting her hair and donating it beforehand and ‘she responded positively.’
However, the bride-to-be had a change of heart when she saw her sister’s dramatic haircut for the first time.
‘I sent a picture of my new hair in a group chat to my family and my sister immediately said, “Oh my god, why would you do this right before my wedding?” And today told me I had to get extensions or I was out of her wedding.’
It’s not you: Many commenters thought her sister’s reaction had more to do with wedding stress than her haircut
Off the rails: Some insisted her sister was being a bridezilla and should be ignored
Difficult situation; The woman said she refused to get extensions like her sister asked, but not everyone thought she was completely innocent
Out of line: Many people agreed that a bride has no right to tell her bridesmaids what they should and shouldn’t do to their appearance
Yikes: Some people couldn’t get over the fact that bridesmaids’ dresses are neon orange
The former bridesmaid said things came to a head when she refused to get extensions for her sister’s wedding.
‘I told her I wouldn’t be paying to get extensions and to just leave me out of the wedding if she’s going to be that angry over my haircut,’ she explained, noting that she wasn’t thrilled about the dress she was going to have to wear anyway.
‘I’m a pale a** redhead and her dresses are neon orange so I already look like s**t. Not that that matters. I’m just irritated,’ she wrote.
‘I know how stressful weddings are. I am married, I had a wedding. And I would never dream of being angry at my sibling for cutting her hair.’
Many people chalked up the bride’s reaction to wedding stress.
‘I’m guessing your sister had an idea of how she wanted her bridesmaids’ hair styled and your hair is maybe too short for that now so she’s freaking out. But in saying that, your hair isn’t even short and there are still plenty of styles that will work,’ one person wrote.
Good riddance: The woman noted she wasn’t a fan of her neon orange bridesmaid’s dress anyway, so some though it was for the best
She’ll get over it: One man recalled his wife being so stressed before their wedding she started throwing up all the time and was constantly irritable
Good question: One Reddit user wondered why ‘brides get so bent out of shape over hair’
Hot take: Another Reddit user said the woman’s sister is ‘entitled’
Say what? One person found it ridiculous that all this drama is over a shoulder-length bob
Fan club: Many people told the woman her hair looks better shorter
‘I think you need to give it a few days and see how your sister feels then. She will hopefully calm down and realize that having her sister in her bridal party is far more important than a hairstyle.’
However, in the comments section of the post, the Reddit user noted that there are a couple of bridesmaids who have much shorter hairdos than she does.
‘One bridesmaid has a pixie cut, another has the side of her head shaved, one has a F*****G MULLET,’ she wrote. ‘If she wanted us all the have long hair, that’s all well and good. But she didn’t.’
Others thought the bride was definitely out of line.
‘So you got shoulder length/a long bob? She’s out of her damn mind to be mad, especially since her dress is the bridesmaid dress you make fun of and wear for Halloween,’ one person commented.
‘If you had shaved it or gotten a pixie cut, I could see her being disappointed but still not “kick you out of the wedding” worthy.’
Someone else asked: ‘Why do brides get so bent out of shape over hair??? Yikes.
‘She stated she didn’t have a problem, so her reaction is all on her,’ another person pointed out. ‘So let her kick you out (especially since you aren’t a big fan of the dress) and know in a couple of years she will regret this decision.’
