Have you given the make-up artist a deposit?  If not I would call her up and tell her that unless she is a miracle worker then she can’t get all six of you done in one morning so she can either do just the two cousins and make less money or do you four.  Then you tell your cousins that the artist literally can’t do you all so they need to find someone because she will not be able to do them.  But honestly if it were me I would just find someone new, it’s not worth the headache :/  I’m sorry about all this, I really want to punch your cousins in the face and I don’t even know them!

MrsPiggles:  I don’t see how this is your problem. You can tell the make up artist what time YOU need her there.It’s her problem with scheduling, not yours. Good luck.

MrsPiggles:  You don’t need to negotiate with your cousins, just deal with your vendor. Your $660, you choose your time.

As others have said, it’s the make up artist’s issue for double booking. Also, not sure when your ceremony starts but I have gotten my make up done for a 7 pm wedding at 9 am due to a large bridal party and my make up looked fine the entire night.

MrsPiggles:  O dang! If the MUA told them that those times were ok I’d be thrown a fit.  Who is she to decide what time everyone has their stuff done.  Last time I checked the person paying the most AND paying for transportation AND is the bride gets first pick on the times.  At weddings there is definitely a pecking order and in this case cousins are 5 and 6, the least important.  I hope the next trial goes well but I would still call the MUA and ask, “What the hell are you thinking?”  In the nicest possible wayy ofcourse.

You didn’t say whether you’ve paid the MUA or not. If you haven’t, don’t book her.

Have you booked the makeup artist for a certain time?

Get a contract!!!!! Get times and how many people, all of it in writing! Then the cousins can’t say anything! You have a written contract that the MUA has to abide to legally.
