Being a bridesmaid is a tradition filled with friendship, good times, and (sometimes) ugly dresses.
But in the case of some brides, the duties of bridesmaid includes dyeing your hair whatever color she requires.
A recent post on Reddit (which has since been removed by the original poster) detailed how one bridesmaid with naturally red hair was asked by her bride friend to dye her hair brown so that her red hair didn't "clash" or appear "too attention-grabbing."
According to the bride in question, "brides get a veto over pretty much every aspect of her bridesmaids' appearances," and that extends to hair color.
Redditors were pretty quick to come to the bridesmaid's defense.
This isn't the only bridesmaid who's recently gone through such a dilemma. A woman recently wrote into Slate's Dear Prudence column because her sister asked her to dye her blue hair to brown for her wedding.
The woman opted to wear a wig instead, and her sister wasn't happy.
This actually comes up more often than you'd think!
Sure, it's her special day or whatever.Hell no, that is crazy talk.I would consider it, depending on how close we were.I might wear a wig, but there's no way I'm actually coloring my hair.I have some other thoughts I'll share in the comments that can't be contained in this poll.

Looks like we are having a problem on the server.
But what do you think? Would you change your hair color if your friend asked you to for her wedding?
