    Are you going to them for your consultation? The other fees seem reasonable,especially considering travel,but the consultation fee seems high if you’re going to them.

    That would be a very good price here. I paid $100 for consult, $100 for day-of, and $75 for travel fee… and that was more than 2 years ago.

    I didn’t have a consultation fee, but I did pay for a hair/makeup trial…is that the same thing?  Mine was $70.  And then my makeup that day was $90.

    Makeup for all bridal party members was $50 each

    This is just makeup, not hair, correct? Granted you are in NYC, but that seems very steep. I’d just make sure to check out her portfolio – hopefully she does a killer job for those prices!

    Mine was $100 (or $150? Can’t remember) for the hair and makeup trial, which I had right before engagement pictures. Then it was $250 for me on the wedding day, and $130 for each girl hair and makeup. My wedding was in one of the most expensive wedding cities, she had 2 assistants, and they did a phenomenal job.

    My day of makeup (airbrush) is $405.  My trial was $200.
