    Personally I would tell her that since we arent able to find time to reschedule another trial I’ve found someone else.  She agrees that she is rusty and therefore why would she even accept to do your makeup for a WEDDING! This is an important day and the pictures will be around for ever.

    Why is your “friend” charging you $120?!?!?! I understand that different places are more expensive than others but if the professional is only charging you $85 then you need to look around at other salons and see what the going rate is because I definitely think your friend is overcharging you significantly. If that’s the case then you shouldn’t feel bad about hiring someone else. Bells idea is a good one, just say sorry but we didn’t have time to have another trial so I did a trial with someone else and it went really well so I’m going to go with her.

    I have to say I’m a little taken back that your friend is charging you 120.00. You can always tell her (if you’re inviting her to the wedding) that you just want her to enjoy the wedding and that you want vendors to be outside parties. It is your day and you deserve to have your make-up perfect. You don’t want to look back at pictures and be mad that you didn’t have what you wanted.

    @bells: totally agree. I know you might feel awkward letting her down, but I’d rather you do that then feel awkward at your wedding.

    Did your friend buy the airbrush system or the makeup just for your wedding? I wouldn’t feel right about making her buy supplies and then leaving her out in the cold. The fact she had to buy supplies might be why she charged so much. I would offer to pay for part of them anyway if you’re not going to use her.

    Ok, I know this is a total lie, but can you tell her that you won the make up services through a raffle or something?
