A woman claims she managed to sue her friend for £656 after rudely sacking her from her bridal shower.
The ex-bridesmaid was told she had to resign just three days before the wedding, all because of a haircut that didn’t meet the bride’s strict specifications.
After suffering from some health issues that caused her hair to “fall out in clumps,” she decided to cut it off. She informed the bride about the chop a good two weeks before the three-day wedding, but only heard back three days beforehand.
Her response was unsupportive to say the least, brusquely asking the stunned bridesmaid to “please withdraw from attending my wedding.”
In response, the wife sent the bride and her husband-to-be an invoice for the three different dresses and shoes and alterations, all of which came from her own pocket. When she heard nothing back, she decided to take legal action.

About nine months ago, the disgruntled bridesmaid wrote on Reddit: “I’ve been told I’m being inconsistent and selfish after spending the last two weeks helping her plan the wedding shower. I worked with another bridesmaid to surprise her with a bridal shower after our hen party had to be cancelled.
“I spent HOURS helping her with wedding details. When she asked me to help her before the wedding, I sent her a personalized exercise program and even took her to the gym to teach her the basics.”
Now, in a recent update, the poster gave the latest information on her legal case, which has seen her suing the bridezilla for £656.

With apparent delight at the outcome, she revealed: “The hearing continued and we both had the opportunity to share our side. I won’t go into the details but it probably took 10-15 minutes. In my condition, they don’t give you the verdict right away and it can take up to 90 days!
“And so… I waited. And waited. And waited. And waited. Then yesterday, May 5th (nearly 90 days later!), I got a verdict. for clothes and shoes.
“I have to give her back two dresses and shoes that I have. The verdict will come into effect on May 30th. I don’t see her appealing (or crossing my fingers that she doesn’t). All in all, I’m VERY happy with the outcome and so ready to close this chapter.”
The poster was also happy to report that her “hair and health is doing much better” and that she “couldn’t be happier.”
A number of other Reddit users have come forward to applaud the determined woman for sticking to her guns, with one person calling her her “heroine.”
Another person cheered: “I’m so happy for you. You had to cut your hair primarily for health reasons, and your ‘girlfriend’ was more concerned with the vision of her perfect wedding than with your health.
“I’m sure something could have been done, like hair extensions or a wig, if you’d agreed. Instead, she just kicked you out. It’s only right that you got all your money back.”
A third person said: “I don’t understand that ‘I’m getting married so everyone in the wedding party has to do what I want with their looks and hair color/length’ which brides have.
“My sister’s only rule for my hair was freshly dyed, which her best friend royally screwed up, and no space buns. I’m glad you won in court and I hope you get paid. And I wish you and yours the best of health.”
