I would pay for #3 but not for MOH, and ask #3 to keep it to herself. You already offered to pay so it seems rude to request money money, and if you pay for #3 and MOH then I think you need to offer to pay for everyone’s makeup, which would just suck.

You either offer to pay for all of their makeup to be done, or none of them.  I know you would have to pay the minimum whether the one bridesmaid had it done or not, but I still think it is ok to ask her to pay for it if she decided she wanted the makeup.  If you pay for only her makeup, this has the potential to blow up in your face.  Do you really want it to come out on your wedding day that you paid for the one bridesmaid’s makeup to meet your minimum payment and had the other two fend for themselves?

@icanhearyousmile:  Since you gave them the option NOT to get their make-up done, I think it’s fine not to pat for all 3!

Just make sure your BM and MUA knows that you paying for the make up is a BIG secret, and that they DEFINITELY shouldn’t talk about it!

@icanhearyousmile:  I don’t think you should have ever offered, but since you have you could tell her it really isn’t fair to the other two so if she still wants it she needs to pay.  Basically you went from saying “if you want your make up done you have to pay for it” to “if you are the first person to tell me you want your make up done I will pay for it”

@icanhearyousmile:  I think the whole situation is now complicated.  But it is better to tell MOH now that she will be expected to pay Even with her own makeup.

@icanhearyousmile:  Oh, sorry, I must have missed that part.  😛  I’m glad it is all resolved.
