So this has been an on-going struggle with people being over involved in my wedding. BACK OFF. I got it. For example. A lady where I work just assumes since she does hair on the side and is also invited to the wedding that she is going to be doing my hair and makeup. Where she got that idea, I don't know. When first talking to her about it it seemed like all she talked about what how she wanted to do it, not how I wanted it done. I brushed it off at first, but then I started getting annoyed at the fact that here we are 10 days from the event and she hasn't mentioned one thing about doing a trial or anything... SO I talked to my mom who I also work with and she basically said that she has been telling everyone she's doing my hair, but I THE BRIDE have not heard one thing about it. So kindly, I texted her and said "Hey, I know we haven't talked about it in a while but I have been experimenting with doing my hair and makeup and I think that's what i'll do... or if you can recreate this look (insert pics here) that would be great." No response, but behind my back she goes to my mom and tells her that she doesn't see the point in doing my hair if I'm going to tell her how to do it and if she was me she would want to be pampered and not want to control everything on her big day. News flash... I've been planning this wedding for 12 months and if I want my hair some way, I WILL HAVE IT THAT WAY.
SO THEN, today she comes to my desk and confronts me and basically says that the style I want isn't the style I need and it doesn't look good that way and it won't compliment my dress, and it shouldn't all be down, and it needs to be teased (basically describing 1990s prom hair, no effing thanks). Long story short, my kind spirit has agreed to a hair trial next Tuesday at 2:30... and I don't know how to get out of it.
