Normally unless you are telling the BM’s how to wear their hair and makeup they pay for it themselves. If you want them to look a certain way you pay for it.  Personally I would just pay for the mani-pedis if you are looking to pay for something

I did the same thing – mailed prices, made appts, etc. I’ve had some members of the bridal party opt out of some services, which is totally fine. I was thinking about gifting them gift cards to partially cover the hair appointments – $25 or something. But that’s if there’s room in the budget after the rest of the gifts have been bought.

I’m totally in the same boat.  I was going to pay for all of them for hair and makeup, but 1 out of the 3 opted out and the others actually got all up in arms and said that I’m not supposed to be paying for that (I told them I don’t care how their hair is).  So I figured I’ll pay for mani/pedi or massages or something, along with a few other small gifts I got them.

I’m paying for a mani-pedi for each of us. This is in addition to their gifts and jewelry and dresses I am making for them with my Mom

I left hair totally optional but am offering to pay for it if they want it. I have two girls that do not want their hair done because they are really paticular as well. Don’t worry about that, it’s their choice and it’s nice for you to offer to all so the ones that don’t want it still know you offered.

All of my bridesmaids will most likely want hair and make up done (1 may not want to do make up) but I’ll be paying for all hair, make up, and nails. If 2/3 decide against hair and/or make up I’ll be paying for whomever wants it done.

It’s a very nice offer of you… but you should still OFFER to the other 2 girls if they say no offer them to a spa day instead (or nails or massage or … ya know something in lieu so they all get something a little extra)
