    I am getting dressed with my bridesmaids and my mom. I’m sure FMIL will be around during this (as FSIL is in the wedding) but unless she specifically asks (or you ask her) then you don’t need to include her.

    I’m including mine just because she is going to be with us the whole time and I felt like it would be sort of awkward/sad if I didn’t, especially since one of her daughters is a bridesmaid! But I also have a very good relationship with her and she’s been so laidback and supportive throughout the whole planning process, so I really want to make her feel included and special on the day. But we are also going to a salon rather than having people come do our hair on location, so it wasn’t as much $$ to just tack her on (also she has short hair Smile).

    I had a very small wedding (no wedding party; ie. no bridesmaids), so I opted to “splurge” and pay for my mom and my MIL to get their hair and make-up professionally done. My MIL loooooved it. And it guaranteed that everyone looked their best in photos. ;o)

    Note: My MIL spent more time with me on my wedding day than my mom did.

    I think it depends on your relationship with her. Do you have any FSIL’s and are you having any of her daughters in the wedding? If you are close it can’t hurt to put the offer out there to make her feel included but I don’t think it’s expected.

    I personally am not, but my FMIL do not have a good relationship so it would just be awkward if she was with me that morning.

    I won’t be including her but that’s because she didn’t get ready with her other daughter in law before her wedding this past january.

    We did include my MIL in our makeup/hair package.  I figured all the moms should get equal treatment since she will also be my mom…I also included my hubby’s step mother (my step MIL?). 

    Both were thrilled to be included.

    I didn’t, but only b/c we all went to get our hair done together and basically paid for our own. My MIL didn’t really contribute much to our wedding, so I figured that it wouldn’t be terrible if I didn’t pay for her hair. My mom paid for my hair for me and a friend did my makeup, so it’s not like I was paying for anyone else anyway.

    But, if you’re including everyone and your MIL is getting her hair done at the same place, I don’t think it would be a bad thing to include her in paying. It’s totally up to you though in how much you want to spend.

    So lucky you have no FSIL’s LOL. I think pushing for you to pay for the grandmothers is taking it a little too far. Since it is on your dime you should be able to decide who you can afford to pay for. Since my guess is the probably have short hair and don’t wear as much makeup, do you think you can get a lower price for the grandmothers?

    My MIL came to my hotel suite and got her hair and make up down just like everyone else did.. but she paid for herself.  I certainly don’t think you should be expected to pay for your FMIL and your FGrandmaIL.. that’s ridiculous.

    @mssushi.. my MIL spent more time with me on my wedding day than my mom did too!
