I’ve decided to pay for my bridesmaids’ hair on the big day. I will have the makeup/airbrushing as an option if they don’t want to do their own (i.e. they pay if they want it).
However… If none of my bridesmaids decide to go with professional makeup, will it/I look weird if I’m the only one with it done? Pics welcome if you did this!
Aaaaaggghhh bridal vanity :/
What will you be doing/did you end up doing?

@ksus07: Bride should have professional makeup even if no one else does but chances are the girls will want it!

You should get your makeup done professionally either way! Chances are some of the bridemaids will want their makeup done. I’ve gone to do wedding makeup for just the bride and Maid/Matron of Honor, and once the other girls see how good it looks, I usually end up doing the majority of the bridal party. I would say just ask the makeup artist to come early in case there are any additional add ons 🙂

It will look fine. You will be in majority of the photos and you need to look back at all the pictures and be happy with yourself.
For my wedding, I paid for all the hair also. The girls were responsible for there own make-up. 4 girls got make-up and 1 didn’t. You can definitely tell in some of the close-up photos but in the group photos is looks fine.

I gave my bridesmaids the prices that my salon charges for hair and makeup, and all of them opted to do their makeup themselves. I had pro makeup done. It looked fine.

It will look fine depending on your BM’s skill with make up. They will have to make themselves up more than normal. If they dont usually wear make up, I would suggest they get it done.
There were only a few girls in my bridal party that had their hair and make up done professionally but because the others knew how to put on formal make up, they looked great.

I had my makeup done by a pro and only one of my bridesmaids decided to as well. It didnt look weird 🙂
