    • Wedding: August 2016 - The Venetian

    I paid for everyone…my girls and both our moms.

    My mom and MIL came to my hotel suite the morning of to get their hair and makeup done.  They left as we were getting our photos done and met us at the venue before the ceremony.

    Honestly i’m not even factoring FMIL into my getting ready plans.  I feel like that’s my time with my own mum and bridesmaids.

    Yes I invited my mil and sil to do their hair and makeup with us. I asked if she wanted it when I was booking and she said yes. I think it’s a nice gesture to do and makes for a better relationship. She came to the hotel room for all of it then after ready, she went over to hang out with H and his groomsmen. 

    We had 2 make up artists though as there were so many people and we also started at like 8:30.

    youngbrokebride :  I would say it depends on your relationship with her. I hate mine so no way was I having her anywhere near me while I was getting ready. Even if I didn’t have her, I would had to have been very close to her to have considered having her there. I got ready with my bridesmaids (who I’d been friends with for 15 years plus) and mum, and have some amazing memories from that morning. I wouldn’t have felt anywhere near as relaxed or comfortable with literally anyone else present, including people I’m friends with, but not super close to.

    So if you’re close with her then by all means include her, and I think if you’re including her you need to provide the same things as you’re providing for everyone else ie hair and make-up if that’s the case. But you don’t have to have her there and shouldn’t feel pressured to just because other brides might or because she asked.

    I invited my MIL and SIL. My MIL joined us, but we didn’t pay (well, I think we ended up paying half for everyone, so it was a reduced price). We aren’t super close, but she did have time to talk to my mom and it was nice to have her there. She just got her makeup done and left though, so didn’t stick around the whole time.

    We paid for everyone that we wanted in our receiving line. We paid for our mothers, grandmothers, bridesmaids, and maid of honour.

    This literally never even crossed my mind. I thought of my “getting ready” time in my bridal suite as an opportunity to relax, get pampered, and clear my mind with my closest friends. If it were taking place in a salon or something, then I maybe would have opened it up to anyone who was interested.

    youngbrokebride :  When I was making appointments, I asked The MOG, Grandmother of the groom, and aunts of the groom (husbands family is huge and very close) and they all declied both hair and makeup. I would not have been paying for them however.

    I had my MIL get hair and makeup with us. Both of her daughters were bridesmaids so she wouldn’t of had anyone to get ready with. I didn’t pay for her hair and make-up (I think one of my SIL’s did). What I hadn’t expected was my own mom was kind of upset when she found out MIL would be there, that it would somehow take away from the mother-daughter experience. I assured her it wouldn’t, and I thought it was important to blend the familes from the start, but that she would still be the one helping me get ready. It all worked out fine.

    youngbrokebride :  I don’t have a good relationship with my MIL so she didn’t get ready with us and she wasn’t involved with the wedding in any way  (except for being a guest).
