Hello People of Wedding Bee… I am a bride and I have a small bridal party of 2 bridesmaids and 1 Maid/Matron of Honor. one of my bridesmaids recently messaged me to say that she did not want to get her make-up done professional and would like to do it on her own. now for some back story. When i asked all my girl to be in my party i told them make up and hair was going to be an expense. Also, i gave them the price 3 months notice for the 50% downpayment for the services. I am booking this 1.5 years in adavnce because i am trying to keep all the payments as far apart as possible so they have time to save up for the costs. when i told them the costs of the hair and make up 3 months ago i asked if anyone had any issues with the costs and if so let me know so we can work it out (a payment plan for example where I, as the bride, I pay upfront and they pay me like 10$ per month until its paid back). Now my question is, is it reasonable for her to not want to pay for make up. It was made clear it was something when i initially asked and i offerred a solution to having to put a lump sum of money upfront after giving 3 months notice that the 50% deposit would be due. now she is telling me she doesnt want to pay for it when she could just do it herself for free… 3 months later when the invoice is due.
