As we know, brides can be perfectionist. But one bride wanted her maid of honor to take it one step further and not wear her glasses to both the ceremony as well as reception.
Oh, and also demanded her maid of honor pay for hair extensions.
The maid of honor (who describes herself as “blind as a bat,”) posted her story on Reddit. According to her, after a stressful engagement full of alleged “bridal outrage” moments, the bride-to-be recently came to her with some odd requests.
“The bride has asked me to add extensions in my hair, as I have a Bob cut (at my own expense of course), and demanded that I do NOT wear my glasses during the event.”
The maid of honor alleged that she had already spent a lot of resources on her friend’s wedding and her insurance plan would not cover an extra eye doctor appointment. And as she did not have any contact lenses already, she had to decide on wearing glasses and upsetting the bride or not being able to see all day.
“How am I supposed to fix her train at the altar,” she asked, “and read my speech?”
She continued, saying:
“I don’t want to ‘ruin’ her wedding by wearing my glasses, but what in the world am I going to do?! I’m going to be stumbling around like a blind idiot.”
But when she did take her concerns to the bride-to-be, the response was not what she was hoping to hear.
“When I explained this to her, she quickly pointed out that all of our dresses have pockets,” the post says. “If I need to find the restroom, I can briefly slide them on to see where I’m going but to be sure and remove them, before exiting as a photographer may be in the area taking photos. I really wish I had backed out of this mess the first time the fiancé moved out. But I’m stuck now.”
