- Wedding: June 2014
I booked a hotel room for me and my BMs the night before the wedding so we can get ready together the next day and take the shuttle directly to the venue th next day. I let them know staying the night was COMPLETELY optional. All 4 girls already said they are in and will stay the night which I’m thrilled about.
I used to work in the salon biz, so I am lucky to have friends willing to travel and do some salon/spa services the night before and day of. The night before, a friend is coming to do manis and toe polish changes (for about $20-30 for each girl/both services) as well as a friend who will do $1 massage per minute (for example, 10 minutes = $10). The day of, a friend who does hair and makeup is coming to do both for $70 max (depending on the style, if they want both services, etc.). All of these things are completely optional.
However, I wanted to ask if it’s rude to have a nail tech and masseuse at the hotel and not pay for the girls. Again, they don’t have to get anything but it will be there as an offer. The hair and makeup the next day is also completely optional so I wasn’t planning on paying for that.
I got the room, plan on buying dinner, and am paying for the shuttle the next day. I wasn’t sure what else to do. Do you think I should offer to pay for spa services? I’ve been apart of BPs that we did something similar and bride didn’t pay so I want to make sure this isn’t rude. I also appreciate hearing any other ideas I could do to make the night special/something they’d enjoy. Please share any thoughts or ideas!
PS They also will be getting gifts from me at RD completely unrelated to the wedding (no jewelry for the wedding, nothing personalized, etc.) purchased according to each one’s tastes.
