I met my makeup artist through work. I am a Pediatric nurse and she brings her kids in to see me. She had mentioned to me that she does makeup and would give me a really good deal since I take care of her children. We have become really good friends and hang out on the weekends all the time. She is a geniunely sweet person and completely awesome. She let me try on her wedding dress and said I could borrow it if I want…. when FI and I were talking about cutting down on flowers she said she would help us do our centerpieces if we wanted to do them ourselves and set them up for us the day of so we wouldn’t have to stress…. She is just a really good friend. With that being said, I am considering asking her to be one of my BM. We are just becoming such great friends and I would really lvoe t have her as one. But she is my makeup artist so I am not quite sure how that would work? Would that be weird?

She can be your bridesmaid and makeup artist at the same time. I would just make sure that you don’t put too much extra stress on her with doing the rest of the stuff that bridesmaids usually help with along with your makeup the day of the wedding.

I think it would make her extremely happy if you asked her to be a BM! Maybe get her an extra special gift since she’s doing the makeup, too. She sounds like a great friend who’s willing to help out in so many ways!

I don’t think it’s weird at all that she is your makeup artist and bridesmaid. I have done makeup for several of my friends at their weddings (including other bridesmaids and the MOB) when I have been a BM at their weddings. I just made sure to do my makeup first, so that I didn’t have to spend time on myself prepping and could just work on everybody else.

It sounds like you guys have developed a relationship outside of her being your makeup artist, so I don’t think it’s weird at all. Many people meet their best friends at work! 🙂

Nope, it would work out totally fine. My best friend and one of my bridesmaids is a wedding photographer, and took care of the “getting ready” shots. Assuming you’re not on too tight of a schedule, she should be able to take care of you and herself.

i was my best friend’s make up artist and i still had to time to get ready myself, run around before hand setting up last minute details for the bride, getting food, etc. i was also her maid of honor. it will work. as long as she is a good time manager and gives you plenty of time. i gave myself tons of time working on her, bc if she didn’t like something i wanted to be able to start over if need be. it all worked perfectly 🙂

one of my BM is going to be doing my hair on my wedding day. When I asked her to be my BM I told her I really wanted her to do my hair but I love her too and wanted her to stand up and if both would be too much I’d understand…she was so excited that she said of course!
