Bride Wants Bridesmaids To Wear Colored Contacts For A Ridiculous Reason


When you get asked to be someone's bridesmaids, it comes with a few expectations on both sides.

As a bride, you want your closest friends to stand beside you as you celebrate one of your biggest milestones, and maybe even help a bit with the planning process.

To make the woman of the hour happy, bridesmaids are usually prepared to be told what they can wear, how to style their hair, and what their makeup should look like.

However, if you're dealing with a bridezilla things can often get much more complicated than making sure your dress color matches the wedding colors.

One bride recently took to Facebook to share that she is considering asking her bridesmaids with light eyes to wear colored contacts for her big day.

She explained that she thinks "blue eyes would clash" with her bright wedding colors, before asking if she is being "over the top."

"I'm offering to let them select any other color, even a rich amber brown like mine (I'm not afraid of being overshadowed!!)," she wrote in a wedding planning group. "I just think blue eyes would clash, since one of the wedding colors is chartreuse."

If you're thinking that this bride's idea is ridiculous then you're not alone. Most people in the Facebook group agree that this woman is the ultimate bridezilla.

"Possibly the most bridezilla idea of all time," wrote one group member. Another added that the bride herself "clashes with sense."

Other users thought the bride's request is "too specific" and borders on "nonsense."

"Five years from now, when you look back on your wedding, even small details like "˜what shoes were the bridesmaids wearing' won't matter or be remembered. Much less nonsense like this," read one comment.

Others pointed out that it seems like the bride is suffering from self-esteem issues even though she denied worrying about being "overshadowed."

"Just the fact that she stated 'I'm not afraid of being overshadowed by blue eyes' means she's definitely afraid of being overshadowed by blue-eyed girls," one person commented. "And the whole 'clashing with the dress' is a thinly-veiled excuse. Homegirl needs some self-esteem."
