When planning your wedding, you should be able to choose the color scheme or aesthetic you want to follow, as long as your loved ones are happy to support and comply with your decisions.

But on the other hand, if your rules mean that a potential guest must drastically change their appearance, then be prepared for that person to refuse to attend.

That’s exactly the predicament of a bride on Reddit who wants her sister to be one of her bridesmaids — but only if she abandons her “alternative” style and agrees to cover her tattoos with body makeup, taking out her nose ring , and dye her hair a natural color instead of the pink she currently wears.

in the her postShe said: “I’m getting married in early September and have chosen my bridal shower. One of my bridesmaids is my sister. My sister has a completely different style than me. She has light pink hair, a nose ring, several earrings and she also has sleeve tattoos on both arms and also on her neck and chest.

“My sister’s appearance was something that always concerned me, considering she’s a bridesmaid.

“I have established rules that apply to all bridesmaids, but some are specific to my sister. I told her that she has to buy body makeup and cover up the tattoos. I also told her to remove her nose ring and most of her earrings and just keep the regular earrings and I told her that at least for the wedding celebrations like the hen parties and the actual wedding she should keep her hair a natural color shall colour.

“The bridesmaid dress really suits my sister’s image and she will look really out of place with all the tattoos, piercings and hair in that dress.”

However, the bride’s sister has insisted she won’t change her entire look just to placate her sister, telling her that if she keeps pushing it, she’ll just skip the wedding altogether.

And the bride is now furious with her sibling as she believes she should “make sacrifices” for her wedding to make her “happy”.

She added: “She told me she wasn’t going to do any of this and I tried to beg her to do it for me, her sister, and how happy it would make me. She told me that my happiness shouldn’t depend on what I do. She changes her style and is someone else to match my wedding aesthetic.

“I told her that people make sacrifices for marriage and how many people might feel uncomfortable or sad that they have to follow certain rules, but they still do it out of love and respect for the couple who are getting married. She said no, and if I’m not okay with that, she’ll get out.

“I was very upset that she started blaming me for it. I don’t want her to get off but I wish she would make this one time thing work for me.”

Commenters on the Reddit post have largely sided with the sister, as many questioned why the bride would want her sister as a bridesmaid when she wants her to change so much of herself first.

One person said: “Why are you asking her to be a bridesmaid when you insist that she change so many things about herself? Why should she have to make a sacrifice for your marriage?”

While another added: “You knew what your sister’s style was like before you asked her to be a bridesmaid. Why are you even asking her if her looks are so important to you? You can’t force them to change themselves, and neither should you.”

And a third wrote: “Inviting someone to be a bridesmaid is about being surrounded by the people closest to you on your wedding day, not creating the perfect photo op.

“Asking someone to wear a dress that isn’t their style is one thing, asking them to completely change their look, to dye their hair for multiple events is quite another.”
