Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life, and you want to look your best. Makeup can help you achieve a radiant and flawless look that will make you feel confident and beautiful on your big day. A user asked, Am I wrong for trying to tell my sister that my wife is right and she should wear makeup for her wedding?
The Original Poster (OP): [39M], OP’s wife [37F], OP’s sister [43F]
What Does OP’s Sister Do
OP’s sister has her wedding coming up. She was a full-time nurse in the armed forces from 2002-2012, and after she left the service, she got a job as a surgical/operating room nurse.
What Are The Hospital Rules
The hospital she works does not allow anyone (doctors, nurses, etc.) to wear makeup in the operating room. There are other rules, like no nail polish or perfume, but makeup is the big one.
Something about keeping the environment sterile.
OP’s Sister Doesn’t Want To Wear MakeUp
OP says, “My sister said she isn’t going to wear makeup on her wedding day. My wife offered to teach her or do light makeup on the day, but my sister said no.
She said she hasn’t worn or owned makeup since joining the armed forces, so she does not think she needs it for her wedding.”
What Does OP Think
OP thinks his wife is right. Also, OP’s wife was pretty hurt when my sister said no.
What Did The Wife Say
OP’s wife pointed out that she might look washed out in the photos, but OP’s sister just said that besides her friend, their mom, and OP’s wife, no one else at the wedding will be wearing makeup.
What Does The Fiance Think
Her fiancé isn’t, so she does not think she needs it.
OP says, “I think my wife is correct and that my sister will regret it after the fact. My sister thinks we are wrong, causing friction between her and me now. I don’t want her to regret it later. She doesn’t deserve that. Plus, my wife is still hurt.”
Your Sister Is Old Enough
“Your wife is a jerk. Your sister is old enough to make her own decisions about her appearance. She is a grown woman. You need to back down and let your sister control her own body.”
Who Gave You That Authority
“You and your wife are absolutely YTA. This is unhinged behaviour. What in the world gives you the audacity to tell her how she should present herself on any day, let alone her wedding day.
She Doesn’t Want To
“I was going to say the exact same thing!
OP, YTA and so is your wife. Your sister is her own person and is clearly comfortable with her appearance without makeup. Stop trying to convince her to wear it.
It Is Ridiculous
“You are a jerk and it’s ridiculous that your wife is now making this all about her and her hurt feelings. It’s the brides decision and no is a full sentence. You two sound very judgmental and shallow. All that matters is that it’s a nice day and happy couple.”
