My stepdaughter is 6 and she’s our flower girl. She and I have been looking at pictures becuase I wanted her to pick out how to wear her hair for the wedding day. She decided she wanted a pretty updo just like me.
Well, we haven’t seen her since last week and yesterday we found out she got a hair cut. A REALLY short bob. It’s cute on her….but grrr! I asked her, “Why did you get it cut when I told you that you need long hair for your wedding day hair?” she said that she forgot…of course she did, she’s only 6.
But I am pissed because her mother should know better! She knows the wedding is in about a month!
I guess we’ll just do a cute little headband and it will be fine, just thought I’d vent. 🙂

Why is this even on your list of things to worry about? A person’s hair and personal style should be dictated by the bride. It’s the wedding of you and your Fiance, not the “the bride gets control over the appearance of everyone in attendance” day…!

my flowergirl/jr.bridesmaid shaved her head except for a strip in the middle from the front to about halfway down. internally i freaked but hey – what can you do?

Oooh, sorry OP, maybe you should take a step back and take a deep breath.
“Why did you get it cut when I told you that you need long hair for your wedding day hair?“
Sounds a bit controlling. It sounds as if your irritation is with the little girl’s mother, though, not really with the haircut. Who knows, maybe she did cut it short just to spite you. But is there anything you can do about it now? No. All you’re going to do by making a fuss over it is make this little girl feel bad. She will be a beautiful flower girl no matter what length her hair is.

I get the annoyance but if you didn’t specifically ask the mother not to cut her hair until after the wedding because of this prior decision with the child…there isn’t much that can be done. Sorry

ehh… if her mom wants it short, her mom wants it short.

I can sympathize since I had a Bridesmaid or Best Man cut her hair two weeks after we had discussed hairstyles for the wedding. I was told by the bee to suck it up.
Unfortunately there is not much you can do about it now. 🙁 I felt the same way though. In my case it felt like spite since I had asked for curly updo’s and the girl in question said basically that she never puts heat on her hair nor uses product but would since it was my big day. Her hair is now to her chin so there will be no updo for her.

@Wannabe-diy-bride: Wow OP. I am not quite sure why people reacted to this post so violently…seems like a bit of an overreaction.
I understand that you were just venting and it’s okay. Just try not to lose sight of things. I am sure a cute headband will be just as beautiful for your day.

You can get her a really pretty crystal headband / wreath or something? I always think that looks so adorable.

You ladies are being a bit harsh!! She just said she was venting, and she already sounded over it by providing a solution at the end of her post. CHILL PEOPLE!

lol She was just venting. You know you all vent about some bullshit once in awhile. At least she said that they would use a headband at the end instead of saying she is going to make her get extensions or turned into bridezilla to cuss out the mom for ruining her vision!

@Miss Tattoo: LIKE! lol
Honestly I think every bride-to-be has a bridezilla moment! Or just needs to vent at some point weather or not WE see it as a worthy vent. Remember bee’s how all the emotions rush upon on you during planning.
But no, I wouldn’t have said anything to the little girl, at all. I do think bobs are really cute on children & adults. You can make it work. 🙂
