I need some advice… Our wedding is about a month and a half away. I have scheduled hair appointments for all my bridesmaids but now after some thought I really think I just want to get my hair done with my Maid/Matron of Honor, mom, grandma, my cousin (bridesmaid) and another bridesmaid who is flying in (from far away) for the wedding..
I want it to be relaxing and more intimate! We are having a big rehearsal dinner, a huge wedding, and I just want some alone time with people who matter the most! Don’t get my wrong, I love all my bridesmaids but there has been PLENTY of drama throughout this wedding process so I want to make sure the morning of, this doesnt happen!
Also, my sister in law (brothers wife) tried to call and get an appointment at the salon with my little flower girl and they are completely booked due to our wedding party and another wedding that day.. If I free up these spots with the bridesmaids, then she will be able to come along.. THOUGHTS??
I need a friendly way to tell my girls I have decided to let everyone do their own hair and we will still meet up and get ready before the ceremony! I just really want this morning to be family! Is this mean??? Is it tradition everywhere for all the bridesmaids and bride to get there hair done together?? What are you brides all doing?
Thanks in advance bees!

Sorry, but I think if you’ve already told them you were doing this, it is mean to go back on that.

I think that’s pretty rude, actually. Especially if you’ve already told them that they’d be getting their hair done with you. Were you going to be paying for these services or were the girls covering their own cost? How many bridesmaids are we talking? You’ve mentioned that 3 (including your MOH) are on your “A” list so how many more can there be? You can’t really exclude part of your Bridal Party and cater to the others. It doesn’t work that way.

I agee with the PP, if you already told them about this you can’t go back on it. It is really rude aind inconsiderate to do that and will make you look like a Bridezilla.

Thanks for the advice bees…
But, let me clarify …
Last weekend we had an outing with our bridal party. As our “thank you” gift to them we took them to a really nice place. Well, some of the bridesmaids got pretty drunk and it turned into a BIG BIG BIG embarassing scene .. Not only was I devistated at how rude it was of the girls to do this after my fiance and I dropped a few thousand dollars at this event, but my parents were beyond shocked… So, in the last week there has been lots of crying and lots of drama! Its turning into a big mess! Hence the fact that I dont want anything to happen like this the day off!
I dont want to “kick” any of the girls out of the wedding, especially this close to the day! I think that would be extremely rude… But, all the girls would be paying for there own hair anyways.
