She asked everyone attending the wedding to not wear makeup? Like not just the bridal party? Was this on the invite?

sarahbee88 :  that was pretty nice of you to do that for a friend, because it was totally ridiculous of her. Surprised so many guests did… I only wear makeup on special occasions so I might have ignored her (doubt anyone would notice).

I think it’s interesting that you felt the crowd looked weird. I guess it says something about how often people do wear makeup that it looked so strange. To each their own and all but maybe we really do need to lighten it up and see our real selves so we are less self conscious or something… or screw that, lol

I still can’t believe she even asked her guests not to wear makeup..was it on the invite like: “P.S you are not allowed to wear makeup”.

Anyway, I bravo you for sticking through this, OP.

Was she angry/annoyed some people still wore makeup?

I dont say this with any snark at all and I wish you could hear my tone. I am sincerely curious what will happen if your friend finds this? You were way more open than I would ever be.

Your friend sounds pretty high maintenance and obsessed. She should learn to focus on ppl for who they are and not just what they look like.

All the guests were asked to go makeup free and most complied? That is really hard to believe. Personally, I think anyone who indulged your bridezilla made a mistake.

I think everyone should have completely ignored that request. Its rude and selfish. Your friend is bananas.

I think it’s really bizarre and unnecessary. Just can’t get my head around it.

But yeah, bravo OP for being sound.

Definitely a new one for the books..

i only wear makeup for special occassions, so i see pictures of myself without makeup all the time. i can’t imagine that it would really look that strange.

still a weird request, no doubt.
