I would be totally cool with it but of course that may be because I’ve gone through so many colors myself.  I really think that all eyes would still be on the bride and groom.

I think if guests are so distractable that crazy hair makes them unable to focus on the WEDDING taking place right in front of them, then there is no hope for them. πŸ™‚

you should be fine, i was worried about the same, one of my potential bm is tattooed and pierced head to toe but after a few min of staring i honestly think guests will be far more interested in the ceremony after all they are here for you and your husband to be

For me, as a younger, more liberal guest, I think I’d be happy to see her up there, and realize the bride in question wasn’t being bridezilla about it. πŸ™‚

That said, my grandma cried the first time I highlighted my hair with a reddish tint… so some folks might not take it so well. πŸ™‚

It’s all about knowing YOUR ‘audience’ or crowd!

Um, my sister has a shaved head and is my maid of honor.  So no, I don’t think crazy hair colors are all that big of a deal.  If you’re really worried about it, ask her to pick a hair color that compliments the dress!

I don’t care.  One of my bridesmaids has burnt orange colored hair.  My colors are burnt orange and champagne so it matcher her dress. LOL.  But I don’t really care.  I’m sure everyone will be focusing on the bride and groom.

I will say that a friend of mine got married in April and several of her bridesmaids had gold teeth (who does that?).  I didn’t make the wedding so when my friends told me how it was, that was the first thing they said.  Undecided

P’s sister has super bright red hair with bleached chunks in it. It’s not something that everyone can pull off, but somehow she does. I’m used to it, and I’m not going to ask her to do something else with it just for the sake of my wedding. Besides, the dresses are a light blue, so it’s not like she’ll clash or anything. πŸ™‚

None of my bridesmaids have unnatural hair colors (one has brown hair that she tints purple-ish; that’s as weird as it gets), but if they did, I don’t think I’d care. It’d probably have to be bright green before I’d even give it a second thought. Although at our age and in our professions, that would actually be pretty surprising. πŸ™‚

I wouldn’t ask her to dye it or wear a wig, I would just ask that her hair be styled sleek and appropriate. If her hair is out of control in more than one way, then people may look at her sideways but otherwise no one will be looking at her, just at the newlyweds!

I guess if she is a good enough friend to be a BM, any of the guests will know her too and not be suprised at her hair. It’s not an issue of rme but I don’t think I would ever ask a friend to change her hair for my wedding.

One of my bridesmaids plays around with crazy colors, but she has already decided (totally on her own accord – I hadn’t even thought about it) to grow it out/dye it natural for the wedding. I think the main reason I would think to care would be not so much the actual day and guests being distracted, but the possible distraction it may cause in photos for years to come.

If your guests focus on ANYONE but you and your fhusband. . .then honestly it doesn’t matter as much as it should to them. . .

The ONLY way i would be worried about unnaturally colored hair if it wasn’t on purpose and they can’t afford to get it redye and they waited until the last minute to ask me for help. . .THEN it would bother me. . .otherwise I would totally be fine with it. . .i love unatural colored hair. Heck, if my fiancee want to dye his a unatural color, i wouldn’t even twitch. I’ve had my hair hot punk pink on the ends, i have an uncle that’s had a mohawk, my aunt has had light pink hair (like frenchie in grease). . .my sis has had deep fushia tinted hair, no of my BMs has tinted her hair purple before (my tinted i mean they kept their naural color and dyes over it giving it a hue/splash of the color). . .i would totally be okay with anyone having unatural colored hair.
