  • totally ridiculous.
  • Yes. Unless she's paying for the really dark spray on tan.
  • You have to be kidding?!?!? That is totally ridiculous.
  • It is silly !! IF that was a "Condition" of being in the wedding party; I'd bow right on OUT ...
  • Insane, she has went of the deep end. Whats next everyone dye their hair blonde?
  • beyond ridiculous. If how dark her bridesmaids artificially make themselves is her biggest priority when it comes to the day she vows to spend the rest of her life with someone, that marriage won't last a year. If dark skin is that important to her, tell her to get a bunch of minorities to be bridesmaids
  • Yeah! Way to go, Bride... Give ALL of your friends the chance to have skin cancer! ;-P
  • That is really a lot to ask for. I know that it is impossible for me to get a tan because I am like "secondary albino" and get burnt if I'm out in the sun. Do what you can to get tan, but don't spend money or feel like you need to waste your time in order to get a very dark tan. A lot of people get carried away with their idea of a wedding and try to make the impossible possible. So don't be like "yeah you are so stupid" even though it is kind of ridiculous.
  • it is ridiculous........but you know the whole ritual is ridiculous. so when you sign on as a brides maid you might as well just suck it up and ride the ridiculous train to the reception
  • ...She wants her bridesmaids to CHANGE THEIR SKIN COLOR FOR HER WEDDING? Yes, that's ridiculous.
  • Yeah, I think that's a little beyond the call of duty. I understand that it's a special event, but expecting your "friends" to change the tone of their skin, might be a little much. Personally, I would just be pleased to share my special moment with my friends.
  • That is the most ridiculous thing I ever heard concerning weddings. Typical American spoiled brat out of control nut case.
  • It should be a wedding not a funeral Yo!! Damn..maybe that girl should not be getting married!! Or she is in for a big suprise:):)
  • Where's the wedding in Hawaii?!:)LOL
  • interestingly ridiculous situation.... is skin color so significant... surprised +4 for the interesting Q
  • I think it is...waste of money, and a possible health hazard for some light skin tones.....I wouldn't be afraid to say...no, I'll have to forgo being in your wedding if this is part of the deal!
  • I just hope I wasn't that insane before my wedding! I'll have to ask my attendants.
  • Everyone always says that this is the bride's day and she should have what she wants. On the contrary, I believe. Nothing at anytime should give anyone a free pass to treat people any way they wish or to infringe on their well being or safety in any way. ` If the wedding doesn't last, at least be sure your friends will be there to help you through it. Heck...make sure they're there even if it does last. ` I would want my friends in my wedding, even if it meant changing some of my wants and demands. Oh...wait a minute...I wouldn't have a wedding to begin with...LOL!!!
  • The bride is pretty much the Queen of the May on her day... Anything goes within reason and her friends should respect her wishes. *Usually only the jealous ones bitch about it.
  • i wouldnt call it rediculous.....id call it bein a tad picky....but its her day and it should be perfect so i would comply....
  • For a normal person, yes that is ridiculous. A bride has no sense of reason nor accountability for what she wants on her wedding day, so I'd say it's 'no' for a bride-to-be.
  • Oh that poor future husband of hers...
  • I agree that it's ridiculous. She's overstepped her bounds. It's OK to tell them what dress to buy (as long as it's not overly expensive), and what color shoes or other accessories to wear, and maybe you can tell them whether their hair needs to be up or down. But what color their skin is? That's crazy! It's really a personal choice whether you want to risk skin cancer or not! And not everyone looks good with a dark tan anyway! And you can't exactly take the tan off after the wedding. Like if you hate the dress she suggests, at least it's just one day of your life that you have to wear it. But a tan lasts months!
  • that really is too much to ask for. very ridiculous. it may be the bride's day, but she has no right to decide the skin color of her brides maids. thats just too demanding.
  • Ridiculous... maybe. Unrealistic... definitely. Why not just us that smooth on tan stuff. What was the reason behind the tan request?
  • thats ridicoulous! Use spray on tan!
  • I can't understand why the bride asks this!! aren't people suppose to look at the bride on the wedding day? I would wait until two days before the wedding and say OMG, I am sorry I can't attend, I don't want to get a tan.. (I hear skin cancer is really harsh) I also hear, that tanning in a hurry is one sure way of getting skin cancer...
  • Perhaps they should turn up with boot polish on their face? ... Ha! Please girls ... take mega solariums and increase the risk of skin cancer for my big day? Yeah! sure friend. http://www.yourhealth.net.au/Practice.aspx?id=118&Article=600
  • umm... That's like saying "You have to weigh this much, and be just like me to be my friend" Except with different requirements and more of a health risk.
  • BRIDEZILLA!!!!
  • Bridezilla cannot be defeated by mere reason or armies!
  • Whats next asking them to change their eye colour or asking them to put on weight so she looks skinnier :P
  • Right! The bride will be sorry one day because when she is looking back at her wedding photos the first thing she will notice is that she didn't look natural.
  • Is she going to pay for all the spray tans?!?! That's the only way I'd do it. So be it if my pale skin ruins her day... she has bigger problems!
  • that will wreak havoc for the photgrpaher too, the skin tones won't be natural
  • It is, especially for those of you who are fair-skinned.
