My original hair stylist had a conflict and probably won’t be able to do my wedding. I reached out to my friend’s GF who does hair and makeup professionally. I invited the couple to my wedding. In her price quotes, she is giving us 20% discount, but charging me $40 for travel. Is it tacky if I discuss with her the fact that she’s invited to the wedding, so I think the travel fee is ridiculous? Take it out of her tip or just suck it up and fork over the $40? Any other thoughts?

everything is negotiable, ask her if she would waive the $40 fee since she is coming to the wedding anyway.
if not, you already got the 20% discount, what’s another $40?

I’d suck it up, what’s $40 in relation to the total wedding cost? The 20% discount makes up for it a bit.
Added bonus of her attending the wedding: on site hairstylist if you have a hair malfunction or fiasco
