    I can see this being split. I am very particular on who touches my hair, and I have a couple of go to fancy up dos and other hairstyles I do for weddings. So personally I wouldn’t want my hair done I prefer my nails.

    I think nails are a safe choice, but if your girls are getting their hair done anyways they may appreciate the hair most. I think the best thing to do is ask your bridesmaids.

    Having my nails done is always a treat – it feels good and looks beautiful even after the wedding is over.   On the other hand, having my hair done as a gift would feel like I’m being forced to look a certain way to be in the wedding.  I’d offer to set up appointments for girls who wanted to have their hair done (they pay), but find a fabulous place for all of you to get manicures together as a gift!

    I would WAY rather get my hair done!

    I can do my own nails, and no one is going to notice them anyway!

    But I am AWFUL at doing my own hair! And it’s going to be in SO many pictures… I would WAY rather have that!

    I would vote hair.  I got a manicure done at a salon a couple years ago…chickie went after my cuticles until they bled.


    I vowed to never go through that torture again!!!

    I vote nails, also because that is what I am doing. I have spoken to the shop where my mom and I always go and we have booked it out for just me and the girls the night before the wedding. So it will also be a time to hang out, relax and enjoy. I am doing both mani and pedi and paying for it for all of them incluing my mom and FML.

    It way harder for me to do a nice updo than a nice manicure. I rather do the nails myself and have my hair done.

    I wouldn’t consider either of these things to be a gift (since they’re ultimately for your wedding.) In my case I paid for their hair and also got them personalized gifts.

    I voted for hair! I can do my nails on my own, and have a gal I like to do them near my home. 🙂

    I’d rather the hair done as a gift. I don’t do tips or wraps so if I was “told” to get them, I wouldn’t be happy. A nice, gel French is only like $25.00. Hair is much more expensive.

    I’d rather hair done. I can do my nails well enough myself, but don’t feel like I can do my own hair nice enough for being in a wedding. Attending one yes, but not being in one.
