Okay ladies, if you had a choice between receiving a bridesmaids bag of goodies or having your hair and makeup paid for, which would you choose? I don’t want to appear cheap, but I don’t want my bridesmaids to have to pay 120 bucks a pop for those services when they already have to purchase their own dresses. What do you all think?

I would probably not want either but if I had to make a choice I would take the bag. I wouldn’t think it much of a gift if I was required to have hair an make up for someones wedding! To me it doesn’t seem like much of a gift for a Bridesmaid or Best Man more a gift for you and your wedding KWIM?

Well, the general rule seems to be that if you want your BMs to go to the salon, you pay.
That being said, I know all people won’t do that and I’d rather not have to pay for a salon trip, so I’d choose that option.

If having their hair and makeup done is part of the uniform then you pay regardless.
A bag of Bridesmaid or Best Man goodies it would depend on what’s in it. But for me the best gifts are the gifts of time together and experiences.
