Bridezilla slammed for demanding bridesmaid DYES her ‘flaming red ginger hair’ because it didn’t match her colour scheme

WHENEVER we hear someone moaning about their friend who has turned into such a "bridezilla", we always try to take it with a pinch of salt - it is the most important day of their life, after all.

Although we could turn a blind eye to the bride who stopped someone else getting engaged on her big day or the couple who sent out horrifyingly rude invitations, when you're asking someone to drastically alter their appearance for your wedding? That's how you know you've crossed a line.

That said, one bride-to-be has turned to Reddit to advice after she demanded that one of her bridesmaids temporarily dye her "flaming red hair" something "less vibrant".

She wrote: "The ongoing issue is that my wedding has a blue and green peacock theme and guests have been asked to follow this colour scheme with their clothes.

"Hair wasn't originally included at all in the colour scheme but my cousin Ella has natural bright ginger hair."

Admitting that it would "bonkers" to make Ella permanently change her hair colour, the bride went ahead and demanded that she do something to the colour temporarily.

"Ella argued that she has been growing her hair for 6 years and doesn't want to risk the colour not washing out," Ella wrote. "I thought this was ridiculous because it literally says washes out in like 14 washes."

Understandably, Ella is also worried that the dye might take longer to come out on her naturally ginger hair.

The bride fumed: "I gave up on that avenue and suggested a wig. It is one day - one single day - and there are some amazing wigs these days.

"I had a look on Instagram and you wouldn't even be able to tell. But she said she would feel self-conscious and weird wearing a wig."

Even though she wanted to drop her cousin from the wedding party, the bride said her mother would "murder me".

I'm at a loss, I can't cut her from the wedding because my mom would murder me but I can't have freaking Merida ruining the photos.

She added: "I really don't want to come across as a bridezilla but butt-length flaming red hair will destroy the wedding photos and ruin the colour scheme completely."

Insisting that she "can't have freaking Merida ruining the photos", the bride added: "Am I the a***** for asking this of her for just one single day?"

Unsurprisingly, the post racked up thousands of replies - and the overwhelming majority of uses agreed that she was in the wrong to ask.

One replied: "This is her natural hair. If she had artificial colouring, I can see asking her to dye it again, but you are asking someone to change their natural hair color.

"Yes your wedding, but there are limits are you have exceeded the limit."

Another warned: "I think you don't realise how impossible what you're asking is. Red hair dyes poorly and often does not come out the colour anticipated, often with a greenish hue."

A third fumed: "You're a bridezilla like 17 times here. Idk what's behind this weird insecurity about someone's natural hair color, but you are absolutely the asshole for making such ridiculous demands.

"Your wedding guests shouldn't need to adhere to a strict dress code color scheme and people shouldn't be asked to subdue their natural hair color or other traits outside of your control ."

Luckily for Ella, the bride is now "seeking a compromise" after her mother and aunt discovered the thread... now that's the definition of awkward.

For more wedding horror stories, this hilarious video shows a bride who was forced to sleep outside her hotel room after losing her room key.

And this mum-in-law gave the bride the lingerie she wore on HER wedding night in the hope that it'll help her get pregnant.

Plus this guest has been labelled "tacky" for wearing a white beaded dress to her sister-in-law's wedding after she refused to be a bridesmaid.
