BJ'S BLOG 08/05/14 "Asking a Bridesmaid to Shave"
Hello again, folks! Fair warning: today’s Group Therapy might get a little hairy.
There are wedding bells ringing for a Rock-A-Holic named Rebecca, but not everything is blissful. Rebecca has a bridesmaid with hairy armpits and legs, and she’s not quite sure how to ask her to shave before the big day.
This says a lot about certain types of women, if you ask me (and Rebecca actually did ask, so pardon me while I finish my thought). We’re supposed to be an accepting society, and some women don’t equate the removal of body hair with the idea of beauty. On the other hand, other kinds of women can be extremely judgmental in that regard.
We’re two weeks away from the wedding, and the bridesmaid dresses are revealing in ways that make the hair issue a big concern for Rebecca. She also claims that her husband-to-be has a problem with the bridesmaid’s grooming habits, too.
As always, we’re anxious to hear from you. I’d really love to get some feedback from the ladies, especially those of you with strong feelings on either side of the argument. Does Rebecca have the right to ask this friend to smooth out her appearance?
