I am well aware that weddings are supposed to be happy and fun, but boy, they really do have a way of bringing out the worst in some people.
One Reddit user recently hopped online to share this saga of her cousin’s wedding.
She was originally a bridesmaid, but she decided to drop out after her cousin’s crazy demands.
Her cousin insisted she dye her ginger hair in order to be part of the wedding party, and now this ex-bridesmaid is refusing to attend the wedding at all.
Now, she needs the internet’s assistance on how to handle all this, and the story starts below.
Oh, and I’m including her cousin’s crazy bridezilla post for you to read, too.
“Yes I’m aware that my cousin posted here and oh the irony as I showed her this sub last year, but I really don’t care if she sees this, maybe it’ll hammer the point home,” she started out her post in saying.
“And I doubt she will see it as they are currently on their pre-wedding honeymoon, legit didn’t even know those were a thing.”
“So Amy is getting married, she has a blue and green and purple theme for the wedding. People are supposed to wear these colors including the moh and the bridesmaids.”
“What irked me about that post was that my hair is NOT FLAMING MERIDA RED. maybe slightly more [ginger] in low light. ”
“This whole thing is completely insane to me and I have no idea where it has come from.”
“My hair is what I would describe as strawberry blonde, maybe ginger blonde. Those are actual pictures of my hair, not some poor stranger’s Instagram.”

“Things have been awkward from the start with Amy demanding that everyone has to stick to this dress code or they will be barred by security at the damn door.”
“She has also asked anyone with hair past their waist to cut it in a Facebook post but it got no replies and I can’t think of anyone except me and maybe my sister with super long hair.”
“My mum and dad are both way more ginger than me and my sister who is 8 months pregnant’s hair is not much shorter than mine and is super ginger, and Amy never asked her to touch her hair? If anything I got the dull hair gene.”
“At first Amy called up to tell me she had made a post here, I took a look and had to laugh, to be honest, she linked me early on clearly thinking people would agree with her but she said she was worried because it blew up.”
“After things went south she decided to try and “negotiate” with me, still completely bizarre as my hair is not Merida red.”
“My mum and dad called round a few days back to talk about it but got absolutely nowhere with her as she’s still insisting I dye my hair a dark brown for the day or get a wig.”
“My aunt, Amy’s mom, called to apologize to me and asked me to please come but I don’t feel welcome, can you imagine attending a wedding where the bride stares daggers at you the whole time?”
“And what if the security refuses to let me in. These are extremely similar to the gowns the bridesmaids are going to wear, I’ve tried mine on and it absolutely does not clash at all.”

“I bought and paid for my dress so I don’t owe her anything but our families are so upset that I’m dropping out.”
“But if I go I have no choice except to dye my hair as there never was a compromise or middle ground, dye it, buy a short brown bob wig or don’t come.”
“She specified it has to be a short brown bob wig for some reason.”
“WIBTA if I just say f*** it and stay home. EDIT also to be fair I dyed a small strand underneath to test how it washed out 4 weeks ago, it is STILL DARK BROWN.”
Here’s exactly what her cousin Amy posted on the internet about this whole thing.
