    No it won’t be weird! It sounds like you’re considering everyone’s feelings so no one will be slighted.

    I am paying for my mom to have her makeup done (she has short hair she wants to do herself)… I have offered for my FMIL to also have hair & makeup done but I won’t be paying for it if she chooses to have it done. So it’s up to her.

    @BluebonnetBride:  My mom got her hair and makeup done with us on the wedding day, but she is pretty terrible about doing these things on her own so it was necessary!  We also had them done at home, and she was there getting ready with us.  I invited MIL to both events but she declined, she wanted to get ready with my SIL in their hotel room and has sensitive skin so she had to use her own makeup.  

    If you’re inviting your mom, invite your FMIL, she might say no, but no harm done!

    We both (MOB & MOG) had our hair and makeup done with the rest of the bridal party. The bride paid for everyone.

    Offer it to both your mom and FMIL.  Then they can decide if they want it.  I will be getting hair professionally done for all the ladies (moms included) but not having anyone do makeup.  I will be doing my own as well as my mom’s.  I always do her makeup for special occaisions.

    I got professional makeup for my mom.  She has short hair that doesn’t need styling so I didn’t worry about that one.  She always says she does a terrible job with her own makeup so I thought it would be nice.  And she got to hang out with me and the bridesmaids all morning.

    I did not for FMIL but that is because I think they were doing other things and she was at a different hotel that was pretty far away.

    We offered it to both moms.  My mom got her hair and makeup done.  The MOG only got her hair done.  We also offered it to my aunt (MOB’s sister) who got her hair and makeup done too.

    My Mom, MIL, Grandmother, and Grandmother-IL all got their hair and makeup done with my bridesmaids and me. It was really nice to have all of the important women in my life in one room on my wedding day.

    @BluebonnetBride: I won’t be paying to have my makeup done, let alone my mom!  It’s a bit of a cheat though…my sister is a makeup artist 😛  She’ll be doing everyone.

    It definitely wouldn’t be weird.  Do what makes you both happy.  Invite your FMIL and see what she’d like to do.  If she’s not that into wedding stuff, she would likely say no anyways, but at least you offered to include her.

    My mom had a pro do her makeup, but did her own hair (it’s fairly short anyway). MIL had both hair and makeup done. Not weird at all!

    My mom had her make up done I offered to pay for it but she wouldn’t let me, and ended up paying for it herself. It looked excellent and i loved it but i don’t think my mom thought it was worth it, but I did, my mom never really had a heavy hand with her make up for daily wear so for the wedding (and  in pictures) she looked gorgeous.

    @mu_t:   My mom will be getting her hair done professionally.  She has very fine hair and wants to have a bit more volume on the big day.  🙂

    I’m paying for my mom to get her hair and makeup professionally done.  I also extended this to my bridesmaids and FMIL.  I think it’s a nice gesture and who wouldn’t want to look properly dolled up in photos that will last a lifetime?

    My FMIL declined but my mother is happy to have it done.
