@Tinkerbride13:  That is expensive for where I live but it could be the norm where you are. I have seen other Bees on here pay over $300 for day of.  Just remember do NOT pay or leave until you are 100% happy.  If you hate it tell them to re do it. Bring a LOT of pictures of what you want and tell them a day ahead of what you are looking for that way they make sure they have ALL the colors they need.  Good luck!

My make up was $80 and my hair was $85! I tipped for my trial and for the day of as well. I cannot remember how much I tipped for the trial but for my wedding day I tipped $50 because it came out better than I imagined.

Hey chica…. almost there!


I asked my hair and makeup team to do me a package for the gals (incl mum) and I for $135. And I loved it so much. Unfortunately I couldnt afford to tip them but I gave them wedding cake and I refer all my friends to them.

I didn’t know that some people don’t tip at all for these services. I always thought it was like restaurants, 20% standard! They must like me lol

I thought you wouldn’t tip since they are the owners of their business?  At salons I thought that was the rule..if they are employees, tip.  If they are the owner, don’t.  I don’t know!
