You can really do it however you want! There are no rules. It’d be a very nice gesture if you could afford to pay for your BMs, but I certainly don’t think they’ll be expecting it!

I had never heard of the FOB doing this! IT’s all new to me. As far as I’ve ever known everyone pays for it themselves.

If it’s part of your bridesmaids gifts, you pay. If not, they pay, but I would give them the choice of whether to go or not. I’m probably paying for mine as part of BM gifts.

I have never heard of that and do not think this a hard and fast rule! I don’t think they would be expecting you to pay but if you did it would be a really nice gesture!

i don’t think it’s anyones job! if you’re including it with your BM gifts then that’s one thing… but otherwise everyone pays their own way!

I just had a good giggle at what my dad’s face would look like if I asked him to pay for my friends to get their nails done 🙂 I think if you can afford to pay for it, that would be lovely. If you can’t afford to do it then I don’t think you can insist they get it done but rather suggest it as an option.

i agree with the pp, it’s definitely up to you if you’d like to give it as part of the bridal party gifts… but other than that the attendant’s pay, but i’d definitely give it to them as an option instead of a necessity if they haven’t budgeted for it.

I’ve never heard of FOB paying for anything salon related.  My girls didn’t even come with me for those types of things.  None of them showed any interest.  My mom and I just went to get manis/pedis together.  She paid for the pedis as a treat to me, and I paid for the manis as a treat for her.

No.  Traditionally, the bride’s parents pay for the wedding and the bride’s own hair and makeup.  The bridesmaids pay for their own hair and makeup (if they have it down).  Anyone else getting salon services pays for their own.
