We’ve reported on a fair number of bridezillas lately, including the bride-to-be who insisted her bridesmaid dye her hair to match her dress (yes, really!), and the bride who asked her bridesmaids to chip in for her designer wedding dress (oh yes!).
And now another example of diva bride demands has come to light.
This time, the bride in question wants to ban her future sister-in-law from wearing glasses to her own brother’s wedding.
Taking to Reddit, the woman — who will be a bridesmaid at the wedding — explained that she had been asked by the bride-to-be to go without her glasses for the duration of the ceremony as well as the wedding breakfast because photographs would likely be taken throughout.
The woman is unable to wear contact lenses, and is concerned that not wearing her glasses will mean she won’t be able to see anything.
“I don’t know why she thinks this is a good idea; my glasses are fashionable and I’ve been told by multiple people that I look better with them on,” she wrote.
“My vision is terrible, so I’d have to be led around everywhere. I’d never be able to find anyone if I needed them for anything,” she added.
The bridesmaid went on to explain that she has offered to compromise by not wearing her glasses at the ceremony and then putting them on for the reception, but the bride-to-be is still insisting she go specs-free for the entire day.
She finished her post by asking for advice about how to proceed, and people in the forum were quick to offer their opinions.
“Without my glasses I am legally blind. There is no way in HELL I would acquiesce to this request,” one woman wrote.
“I would legitimately resign my position and not go. There is no way I would allow my safety to be put at risk,” another woman wrote.
“Asking a person to not wear their glasses is totally unreasonable. I’m nearsighted and there’s no way I’d walk down a church aisle, especially if there’s steps anywhere that I may have to navigate, without my glasses on! I’d trip and fall and ruin the whole thing anyway,” another user wrote.
“I’d just tell the SIL if she doesn’t want me to trip while walking down the aisle or fall over during the pictures and get my dress dirty then I’m wearing my glasses. Or really, either I wear the glasses as a bridesmaid or I wear them as a guest, her choice,” yet another user commented.
Others pointed out that the bridesmaid wouldn’t be able to appreciate and enjoy the day if she’s worrying about how little she can see without her glasses on.
“Honestly, you’re not going to be able to enjoy yourself during this event without your glasses. I know I wouldn’t. The thought of going more than five minutes without my glasses is so absurd — I literally never take them off unless I’m showering or sleeping,” one woman wrote.
The woman clearly wasn’t alone in being on the receiving end of bridezilla behavior — other women took to the forum to share their own bad bride experiences.
“A friend of mine asked me to take my glasses off for her wedding pictures, saying that they would ‘ruin’ her photos,” one user wrote. “This was right after I spent a thousand dollars on the bridesmaid dress she picked out, cross-country flight to her hometown, and hotel she chose.”
“I decided right then that we weren’t friends anymore,” she added.
