- Anonymous bride, believed to be American, asked her pal to not wear make-up

Every bride wants to be the center of attention on their wedding day – but one woman has taken it to the extreme – banning her bridesmaid from wearing makeup.
The anonymous bride, believed to be from America, is said to have asked her friend to forgo cosmetics as well as having her hair styled for the big day.
An exchange of text messages between the pair was shared to Facebook group That’s It, I’m Wedding Shaming last week, and saw the bride-to-be labelled ‘insecure’ and ‘jealous’ by social media users.

The bride started the conversation by asking for a ‘favor’ before adding: ‘I don’t mean to sound weird but can you not wear makeup for my wedding?’
Her bridesmaid replied: ‘Why? I don’t wear makeup regardless but isn’t everyone else getting their make-up done?’
‘Yeah but I don’t want you to outshine me,’ the woman explained, before asking her friend to also ‘not get your hair done’.
The bride finally asked her bridesmaid if she was okay with that, adding: ‘Because it should be about me that day.’
Reaction: Social media users were quick to comment on the post, labeling the bride ‘insecure’
The messages were posted with the caption: ‘Spotted this on a makeup site. Girl, bye. Edit: On a black women’s makeup site. You really expect us to show up to any social event without our hair done?’
Social media users were quick to comment on the post, labeling the bride ‘insecure’ and suggesting the bridesmaid should take the situation as a compliment.
‘Girl your insecurity is showing!’ one person said, as another added: ‘Wow, how ridiculously insecure.’
A third wrote: ‘I don’t know if I would be offended or if I would just take it as a compliment. I would still do my hair and makeup though.’
Others suggested that the bridesmaid should take the bride’s comments as a compliment
Many other people suggested they felt sorry for the bride-to-be as she was ‘clearly jealous’
Many people suggested they felt sorry for the bride as she was ‘clearly jealous’, with one individual explaining: ‘If someone texted me this I’d feel so sorry for them and also feel secretly flattered’.
‘Clearly, someone is jealous. Kind of sad actually,’ another social media user said.
However, after spotting that a text sent from the bride was repeated by the bridesmaid, some social media users suggested the text conversation had been faked.
They claimed that the original poster had sent the messages to herself.
