Oh no. There’s another ‘my friend kicked me out of her bridal party’ story and this one is the LITERAL WORST.
Unfortunately since then, the bridesmaid received some bad health-related news and had to undergo radiation and chemotherapy, which of course came with many side effects – including hair loss.
Uh oh. We share the worst requests we’ve ever received as a bridesmaid. Post continues below video.
“My hair fell out and I am recovering but my hair is still very short,” the poster said. “I have also been very active in the survivor community and have been involved in fundraising and public speaking.”
She wrote that her friend Karen, a nurse, had been “super supportive” through it all, and was always around for a chat.
About two weeks ago, Karen called with a lovely idea: A day of pampering to celebrate the bridesmaid’s remission and end of treatment.
“We go to a spa which was super nice and enjoy some skin treatments, massages, and general pampering,” she wrote.
“At the end of the day she takes me to a special hair salon which specialises in high quality wigs. I am a little taken aback by this because Karen knows that a lot of the work I have been [doing] involves psychological treatment in cancer patients and avoiding the shame associated with hair loss for instance.
“I politely go through the appointment and even try on some wigs although I was quite upset honestly. I politely decline when she offers to pick one out and try to forget the whole ordeal.”
Then earlier this week, Karen called anon to tell her she could not be a bridesmaid anymore, because “the minister stated there are too many people in the bridal party”.
This came as a major shock, because the poster believed she and Karen were best friends.
So she did some investigating.
“I call around and although some of the other bridesmaids are reluctant to tell me anything, [they hinted] at the fact that Karen was worried about how the pictures are going to look with someone with a bald head.
