I have never heard of this, it sounds like she wants free advertising. I wouldn’t do it, no.

Yeah no.  There’s no way my stylist would be on my programs- it’s not an advertisement, it’s a WEDDING PROGRAM.

I have never heard of that before, nor have I seen it before. Seems a bit odd for ad’s in programs Undecided

I wouldn’t do it and I’ve never seen it done.

It’s a form of advertising for her and that’s not what a wedding program is for.

I have never heard of this. I would ignore the request, if she mentions is again I would tell her that the programs have already been printed.

I wouldn’t do it and do not think it is normal.  If I found out that it is actually pretty normal I may reconsider to not cause a stink.

No. It’s your wedding program, not a flyer. Word of mouth about her (hopefully great!) services will be just fine.

no, that’s odd! Unless she’s doing it for free? and maybe you could thank her?

Ignore her. You paid for her services, she will do them- end of story.

unless she’s doing the service for free, then NO. I’ve heard of vendors putting business cards out on the gift table or cake table at the reception (and only if they VOLUNTEERED their service, so it’s a fair trade) but if you are paying them, HELL NO, and definitely not in the program. Sounds greedy to me.

Yeah, that’s not acceptable to me.  If your photos are blogged you can always have them credited there, but that’s it.  Very unprofessional of her to ask!
