No I don’t think so! I think you are giving them a great gift! I would totally go for that then a chinaware.

An old friend of mine is doing the same thing. I tried to hire her, but she’s not having any of it and is gifting me her services. 🙂

I had a couple of friends offer to participate in my wedding.  One of my bridesmaids is my hair stylist that I’ve known for over 15 years, so she did my hair.  Another friend of mine is a violinist, so she played during the ceremony.  I basically told them ahead of time NOT to buy us a gift, as their gift was making the day so special!  I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way! 

Here they are (sorry, I can never resist an opportunity to post pics):

I would much rather have free hair/makeup then a gift.

@janekimmer:  I would LOVE that as a gift!  I think you’re being very generous.

Completely agree…would LOVE that as a gift.  So I am going to pay for all of it for my Maid/Matron of Honor as her gift.  She is unemployed right now, and I know she would appreciate it more than a gift she’ll never use again.  I am going to buy her a necklace or something else small –
