- Wedding: October 2013
I love how this thread has evolved into an argument about purple hair because it’s so “unique” and “offbeat.” Except…it’s totally mainstream. When Brittany Spears, Kesha and Miley Cyrus started dying their hair “crazy” colors, it became mainsteam. Oh wait, prior to that it was Blondie and Betsy Johnson. Having “normal” hair is almost more mainstream within the “offbeat” circuit- a girlfriend of mine who is a burlesque dancer started going gray when she was 18 and she is now fully gray at 29- THAT is offbeat and unique… and would people dare tell her to dye her hair for her wedding? no. Wear your hair how you want, but do realize that marrying into a family can be about choosing your battles- is this one REALLY important enough to start off on the wrong foot? Sure, it’s beyond stupid, but if it really means SO little… why not cave a bit to appease someone who you’re going to have to interact with for the rest of your (or her) life? The ability to see the forest for the trees is the true sign of maturity and, imho, “uniqueness” in this situation where so many people would dig their heels in.
