- Wedding: July 2013
There’s a lot going on in this story, so I’ll try to make it short & (not so)sweet.
-MOH got married last year back in Canada, I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man & happy to do so. Fiance and I booked our flights from Australia only to find out a few months later that the date was changed to 3 weeks later. I was told “Just fix it.” $3000 later in changed flights plus expenses of being away an extra few weeks and we were at her wedding. I work in the wedding industry, so once I arrived I was more than happy to help pick up any pieces that weren’t thought of ahead of time. Hell, another Bridesmaid or Best Man and I pulled together the music for ceremony, cocktail hour, reception & groom/MOG dance in the last 24 hours because the DJ wasn’t going to be there until 8pm. The morning of, I drove all over town to find tulle for their wedding arbour & so was late for hair/make up.
Fastforward 6 months and Fiance and I are getting all of our final touches done for our wedding in July.
-MOH complained about the cost of coming to Australia for our wedding & not being able to stay at our house – sorry, but family first. I’ve instead offered to pay for her accommodation in leu of a Maid/Matron of Honor gift(all I got from her was a $20 lip gloss – but whatever).
-I’ve tried to keep the costs down for my ladies by choosing a dress <$100 to which she said, “Oh, I guess I have to just be a good little Maid/Matron of Honor and wear your tent dress.” I chose the infinity dress so that they can all be similar but style it differently. Also, I’ve only stipulated the colour of shoes & accessories so they can personalise it more that way. Maid/Matron of Honor is even a make up artist, so she’s doing her own hair & make up.
-She’s just now decidee that FOR MY WEDDING she wants to colour her hair an ombre teal. She’s naturally a brunette which has swapped to blonde & red in recent years(nothing too crazy). I’m not knocking funky hair colours – I’ve been variations of red/violet/pink for the last 15 years. Is it being too much of a bridezilla to want the photos of my day not have a big teal focal point in them? I’ve read a few posts of different sites that have mentioned similar situations.
I know it sounds horrible, but on the day as well as in the photos I just don’t want everyones eyes to be drawn to her hair. She sent me a picture of what she has in mine. I dig it, I really do! Just not for my wedding though. Is this being too much of a bridezilla??
I don’t know, I feel like I look like a little kid jumping around yelling “Me me me!” She’s had her big day though, and I did everything I could to help her. Can’t I just for once be in the spotlight without worrying about anyone else trying to take it from me?
