- Wedding: May 2010
First, some background: I have 5 bridesmaids. I’ve already bought each of them a pair of earrings from Anthropologie, and plan on getting them a shawl. However, I feel like I need to get something else to supplement this for 3 of the bridesmaids because they’ve really put a lot of effort and money in helping me plan my wedding, going along for dress fittings, running errands, and planning a bachelorette party. The other 2, having been married for a few years now (which I have wholeheartedly ‘maided for), seem a little less enthusiastic, which I can’t really blame them. But I do feel a little hurt that they don’t offer any input in planning (they’re skipping out on half of my bachelorette party, too), only provide negative arguments to other people’s suggestions and are always “too busy” to come along with me to most, if not all, of my wedding stuff.
I’ve been looking at hair and makeup artists and I found one who would be willing to do mine and my mom’s for a really affordable rate. Her price list also has a really good rate for bridesmaids as well. My question is: would it be … vindictive of me to offer hair and makeup services to the 3 bridesmaids who’ve really been there for me and been BRIDESMAIDS, and not for the other 2? Also keep in mind that those two have already asked one of their sisters to do the makeup for the 2 of them the morning of.
And I’m really really not being a bridezilla. I understand people have lives, and I haven’t asked for a lot of my bridesmaids, mostly advice and reassurance. I’ve done probably about 99% of this wedding completely by myself, but when it comes to things like bachelorette parties… well, I kind of needed a little effort from my girls, you know? I need advice!!
