So I am kinda in a dilemma. My maid of honor or should say Matron of honor has two teen age daughters . Her oldest who just turned 17 is thinking of a career in cosmetology. Her daughter does a pretty good job of doing hair.
My matron of honor suggusted that I use her daughter to do my hair on wedding day. I don’t want to do that. I rather have a person who has little bit more experience and licensed.
Her daughters mean a lot of me and I know it would hurt the oldest daughter if I say no but I want to look the best I can on wedding day. How can I put it in the kindest way that thank you but no thank you?

Well you definetly should not say, No thanks I want to look my best on my wedding day lol!! I had to laugh at that. Maybe tell her you already have your hair and makeup artist all lined up, but she can do it for the rehearsal dinner or bridal shower??

no no no no no no no! just be honest, tell them you love them for offering but this is too important to you and you dont want to risk anything about your day and this is something for the professionals

I would tell her that I appreciated the offer but I had already made plans to use the sylist I had used for years.

@Bostonsmom: LOL yeah not going to say that. I wish could say found or already lined up hair and make up. She already knows that isn’t true due to was asking the bridesmaid who all wants to get hair and make up done. The places who I have been calling to set apts/get prices are asking how many people.

Well then just tell her you want to make a girls day of it and the whole bridal party is going together to a salon of your choice. It would be weird if you got her daughters to do your hair and makeup and all your attendants went to the salon!

i would tell her that it is really important to you that all of they guests enjoy the wedding, and that you wouldn’t feel comfortable having friends and family worry about something as big as that
