Why would you feel uneasy?

Why would they choose a stranger for their hair and makeup when they have a stylist they use on a  regular basis?

What’s the problem? They want to go to THEIR salon for THEIR hair and makeup where they feel comfortable. Im lost….

clattarulo626:  if they declined the services and you did not sign a contract with them counted it shouldn’t be a big deal. Especially if they are paying for it. As mentioned they probably go to these stylist all the time and feel comfortable with them since they know them. I get that as brides we want that moment where we all bond and do our hair and make up but sometimes it just doesn’t work out that way. If they are paying for it let them go where they like. You can all bond and laugh when they get there later.

Are these ladies stylists/makeup artists? I don’t understand how they are going to “their salon”.

It can be fun to get ready all together. However if you’re the one choosing the hair and make-up people, you should pay for it.

clattarulo626:  You can still have “getting ready”photographs. You can still get dressed together. They will just look so much nicer when their hair and makeup is already done. If you really want to get ready together, you could go to their salon.

If you decide to pay for them at your salon then you can feel uneasy. If they’re the ones paying they have every right to decide where that money goes. So they can go a little earlier then meet you to get dressed. No problems 🙂

Ugh that’s a tough. If you really wanted them to get ready at the same place as you, you shouldn’t have given them an option. But that would mean you would have to pay for their hair/makeup.
