- Wedding: January 2014
Ok so here is my story,
I have 5 bridesmaids and a maid of honor. My sister (23 yo) is a bridesmaid (or supposed to be) in my wedding which is in less than one month.
Invitations to my wedding went out almost a year ago, due to the fact that I am having a destination wedding in the Bahamas, while cruising on a Royal Caribbean Cruise. My fiance and I have been together for 8 years, and were engaged on board a RCC. SOOOO in February I started looking for a dress. My sister, and mother both ditched out on going with me dress shopping…. Whatever… so I purchased a dress that day, while at the dress shop I had asked all my girs (5 in total) to be my bridesmaids. I was waiting to name a Maid/Matron of Honor in case my sister started showing some interest.
Time goes by… I am being VERY relaxed about the bridesmaids dresses. I chose the color Coral, and for fabric: chiffon, since it is a beach wedding. I told the girls that they can choose any style dress they want so long that it was the right color/fabirc. I then sent them TWO links to two different websites with HUNDREDS of styles that had the same color that I was looking for. Everyone has purchased and recieved a dress except for my sister.
My sister also did not attend my bridal shower (which is fine she just moved away) but did not send a gift iether. She has not purchased ANYTHING for the wedding at all… dress/shoes/jewelry and my wedding is a month away!!
OHHHHH and I forgot to mention, she has in the last month, shaved the sides of her head so that she has a mohawk, dyed the front of her hair BRIGHT PINK and got snakebite piercings (which if you don’t know, that means she has two lip piercings on her bottom lip)
When I approached her about her hair, I asked her to first dye it a natural color, and she was so mad, (and has not yet agreed to do so) then she freaked out when I started contemplating hairstyles for her. Her statement to me was “I was under the impression that I am in charge of my own $%#*ing head”. I tried to explain to her that during a wedding, it is no uncommon for the bride to specify a hairstyle for the maids, but she wants to SPIKE IT UP IN A MOHAWK.
So now I don’t know if she will get a dress, I don’t know what to do about her hair, and I have to try to figure out what to do about the lip piercings as well. As the day gets closer, I am stressing majorly.
What do I do???!!!! Am I being insane for asking her to dye her hair for one week? or to replace the metal rods in her face with flesh colored ones? She is acting like I am a bridezilla and I am asking her to do so much.
