Jacinda Ardern weighs in on viral 'bridezilla' Reddit thread on The AM Show

While Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has stayed mum on many details about her upcoming nuptials to fiance Clarke Gayford, it appears she won't be making her wedding party engage in any dramatic makeovers before the big day. 

The PM appeared on the AM Show on Monday morning where, among hot button topics like Afghanistan evacuations and the COVID-19 response, she was questioned on a viral Reddit thread making headlines.

The post from an anonymous bride-to-be revealed the bride had demanded her cousin dye her "natural bright ginger hair" before being a bridesmaid, so it "doesn’t ruin the blue and green colour scheme". 

AM Show host Ryan Bridge asked Ardern what her response would be in that situation. 

"Look in that particular situation I'd say to the bridesmaid, 'lucky escape, you've been given your out clause!'" she responded. 

"Oh, you'd say 'don't go'?" he questioned. 

"Well I mean it looks like you've been given the option not to," Ardern laughed. 

She went on to reveal she won't have any such stipulations for her own wedding party. 

"For me it's all about the guests having a good time. You want everyone to have fun," said Ardern. 

"Having a precondition on the way you look or appear, that's certainly not the beginning of a fun time."

The PM has previously let some details slip surrounding the big day: In May she announced the couple had set a date for a summer wedding, and revealed the nuptials will take place in Gayford's hometown of Gisborne.
