    @MrsPhilly:  I think $65 is super reasonable. It’s usually in the triple digits. As far as paying for the ‘maids, unless you are requring them to get it, they pay for themselves. If you require it, it’s on the Bride.

    I wouldn’t ask that of them, but I hate being a bother. I would just give them the option of doing it themselves or going somewhere on their own.. but it wouldn’t be a requirement.

    If you require a professional hair style, you pay for it.  If you’re happy with them doing their own hair, or having a friend do it, or whatever, you don’t have to pay.

    @MrsPhilly:  I am paying for my girls’ dresses so I am leaving it up to them if they want to pay to get their hair and make up done but i know my girls really well and know that they will..especially because I’m paying for their dress 🙂

    You sound like you are being a wonderful kind bride and going about it right!

    I have a family friend doing my hair for the day of, she’ll be coming down a few days before to do a trial (she gave me my first haircut and lives 12 hours away, so for her to get here even a day early is a treat!) and I’m hoping she will do the girls too, but I’ll be paying her hotel room for a night or two instead of paying her directly for the hair.

    @MrsPhilly:  Truthfully…if they are close to you (and considering they are in your wedding party I kind of hope so..lol!) then just talked to them about it and be considerate and honest…If you come right out and say I don;t know ettique protical here ladies so work with me a little…I’m sure they will be considerate and appreciate the easy open dialogue…as least mine have 🙂

    @MrsPhilly:  If you are requiring they all have the same hair style or would like them to use the hair stylist, then yes.

    If you are leaving it open and up to them, then no. Its is OK to send a message and say if you would like to get your hair done heres the info, but reinforce it is not required.

    Yes, if you are not requiring them to do it they pay only if they want it done. That is the price my BMs paid and its very reasonable
