This should be very easy. You just have to explain to the bride that you have a medical condition- you get excruciating migraines from wearing your hair up. Let her know that if you feel this screws up her vision for how she wants the BMs to look, you completely understand and will bow out, but that you need to wear your hair down.


If she complains or cops a fit, seriously run away from this girl and never speak to her again because she is a huge b*tch.

@Leeluu:  This!  


Just be upfront with her.  I wouldn’t subject myself to a situation that I *KNEW* would bring on a headache no matter who it was!

I have the same problem. It’s not even wearing it tight… if it’s tight enough to not just fall down, it’s tight enough to give me a headache. (It took me a really long time to realize that was what was causing them, too. Because really, hair?!)

I agree with Leeluu. Tell her it gives you a migraine, and if she doesn’t care, this is not a person you need to have in your life, period, much less deliberately suffer a migraine for. (Heh. I bet she’d just love a bridesmaid having a migraine and puking on the altar. 😉 )

On the headache topic, since I started wearing my hair short, I have so many fewer headaches. It was kind of sad, because you know, long beautiful hair… but there’s a lot to be said for less physical agony too. 🙂 If you haven’t worn your short, you might try that. Just getting the weight of my own hair off my head helped a lot.
