    I’m kind of under the impression that if you want their hair and make up a certain way, that you pay for it…. I have yet to cross that bridge though, but that is kind of what I understand..

    Its my thought, that if you are requiring your BMs to get their hair and make-up done, then you should pay. If its optional and some girls choose to get it done, then they pay.

    I did not vote because you did not have a poll option for you paying for it. I think that if the bride is requiring professional hair and makeup, she should pay for it. I did not require hair and makeup for my BMs but it was there and I treated the girls that wanted to get it done. I just think it is a nice gesture since your BMs already have so many wedding expenses.

    I think if you’re requiring your girls to have the hair and makeup done, you should pay for it.  If you make it optional for them, then it’s perfectly fine to ask them to cover it themselves.  Of all the weddings I’ve been in, I would have had a hard time coming up with an extra $200+ to pay for hair and makeup after spending money on a dress, shoes, shower, bachelorette, hotel and accomidations.

    Should have read the post first – if you are requiring that they get their hair and make up done, then yes, you should be the one to pay

    However, if they have the option to get it done then they can choose whether to do it or not and pay for it themselves

    And yes, if you are requiring your MIL get her hair and make-up done, then you should foot that bill too :/

    I agree with the ladies- if you’re requiring it, you pay. If it’s optional, the bridesmaids/FMIL pay.

    If your FMIL doesn’t normally do hair & make-up and you don’t like the way she looks, you should pay.

    Yes, you (or your parents) should pay. If you don’t want to pay, let the BMs and FMIL do their hair and makeup themselves.

    For the record, I do not think you have to pay for your FMIL to have her hair and make-up done. You can suggest that she get it done professionally, but I don’t think you can force her to have it done.  If you ask your girls to have it done though, you should pay for them, or at least contribute to the total cost.

    @ADKBride: If you want their hair to be uniform in a certain style, then you should pay for it.

    I actually paid for the BMs and my mom’s hair and make up.  It was part of their gift along with their accessories for the day.  It wasn’t so much for uniformity – it was more to pamper ourselves and relax a little bit before the craziness set in! Wink

    Its all up to u.

    The big question is, would u have the money for it?

    Thats the one question to ask yourself. None others matter. If u dont have the money, then u dont do it.
