Bride Bans Sister From Wearing Makeup To Her Wedding, Controlling Fiancé Suspected

Brides come in all shapes and forms. Some are chilled out, only wanting to have a good time on their big day, surrounded by their loved ones. Others, however, become full-on bridezillas and make life a total nightmare for everyone around them. Those are the brides you should avoid at all costs, ideally having as little contact with them as possible. But what happens when the bridezilla is your sister, and her unreasonable demands include requesting that you not wear makeup to her wedding? To make matters worse, what do you do when you suspect that the ridiculous condition is actually coming from her fiancé? Surely it would raise a red flag or two? One woman posted this predicament on Reddit's Am I The As*hole, questioning whether her sister was being unreasonable, emphasizing that she wouldn't feel comfortable attending the wedding without wearing makeup.

    Redditers jumped to her defense, firstly raising concerns about her sister's fiancé showing controlling behaviors, and secondly expressing that no one has the right to stop someone else from wearing makeup.

    They advised that the OP show up wearing makeup anyway, regardless of her sister's demands, and that she should stand her ground. What would you do if you were in her situation?

    Font - doesn't want to wear make up which didn't surprise me as she rarely wears it, but today she told me she didn't want me booking anyone for my or our mother and that she didn't want us to wear make up at all.

    Font - I messaged her privately to say that I was very happy to do my own make up and could do a natural look to fit the theme and she told me that I wasn't to wear any make up as that was what "we" wanted.

    Font - She insinuated a few weeks ago that her fiancé told her not to wear make up on the wedding day but that's a separate conversation. I told her that I wouldn't be comfortable not wearing

    Font - plch_plch Partassipant [4] 2 days ago NTA she's showing an unhealthy level of controlling attitude. Ask her why she should care so much about your make-up, does she think she would look too plain next to you?

    Human body - Wild Azz 2 days ago I'm here for the separate conversation about the future husband. Sounds like a controlling asshole that won't get any better with marriage. Forget the makeup, tell her to cancel the whole damn thing.

    Mammal - Wild Azz 2 days ago If there's no talking her out of it my advice would be to go and comply with the no make up request. Even if you don't like how you look in the photos they'll all be deleted or ripped up in a few years during the divorce

    Font - LilGothRose 2 days ago NTA. She can't tell you that you and your mother aren't allowed to wear makeup. You offered to do a natural look, as to not take attention away. The fact of her saying "we" and her husband saying he didn't want her wearing makeup is a bit concerning
