my miads & I are planning on going to get manis & pedis the day of the rehersal dinner. also, i have asked my maids if they wanted to get their hair done on the day, and they all said they’d like to.
as their bm gift, I’d like to offer to pay for their manis/pedis or hair on the day.
as a BM would you appreciate that gift? (pls keep in mind I didn’t insist that they get their hair done- they all asked to)

Depends. some people like gifts, others like favors. I am planning on giving pashminas to all my girls and paying for their makeup. A little of both.

Yes I would love that! Nothing like a good mani/pedi to soothe the soul.

I was the MOH in my sister’s wedding and she paid for our manis and part of our hair. In addition she got us each a cheap pair of flip flops in the wedding colors to wear that day and a big tote bag in the wedding colors.
My bf also did this for us bm’s for her wedding. She paid for our mani pedis and then she bought us all bath robes with our monogram on them in the wedding colors.
The flip flops are especially cool if you are getting a pedi. maybe you could do something like that. If you order them online you can get them in any color for great rates 🙂

i love the idea of mani/pedis + cute flip flops! would love to get something with bridesmaid written on them- but then again- they’d probably never wear again
any suggestions for flip-flop ideas?

My sister ordered some out of one of those whole sale supply catalogues. She got the ones with the clear thong part. Then she took a paper-hole-punch and put little holes about a half of an inch apart down the clear thong area. And then she Laced a peice of ribbon through the holes and tied it in a bow where the two peices come toghether at the toe.
She had the colors brown and orange. I wore brown (MOH) and the other girls wore orange. So they got orange flip flops with a brown ribbon through them and I got brown flip flops with an orange ribbon through them.
They were great for the reception too. We all had matching shoes that were super high heels. When we started dancing at the reception we all got our matching flip flops out so our feet wouldn’t hurt.

They might have just assumed you were paying for their hair, but I think the mani/pedi is a great gift because it’s something you don’t HAVE to do, but it’s a really nice place to treat and pamper your friends.
