I have a bff that I had originally asked to do my hair and makeup. I ended up asking her to be part of my bridal party. Do you think it would be too much to ask her to do the other girls as well? Is it bad if I tell my party that its their responsibility and that it doesn’t have to be professional?

I think it’s going to be hard for one girl to handle an entire bridal party (if it’s large). How many people are you having? Now that she’s actually IN your bridal party…she’s gotta do her hair too. I’m sure she’d be doing hers anyways but yeah, lol. How many girls do you have? I would ask her about it first obviously and see what she thinks. Tell her you’d love for her to handle your hair and makeup still but you understand if she can’t handle everyones.
And no it’s not bad that you tell your girls hair and makeup is their responsibility. I think most people do. If it doesn’t have to be professionally done they shouldn’t be upset. =) If they wanted to go get it done by someone then by all means let them haha

I was once a bridesmaid & the bride’s MUA same time. I also did some of the girls hair while I wait for the my friend (bride) run errands. The rest of the bridal party was done by 4 other girls I called to assist me that day (there were 12 other bridesmaids & 5 moms/grandmas to get HMU done in total). Hella large Filipino bridal party, alright! Whew! This case, my friend (bride) took the responsibility for everyone’s make-up.
My bridesmaid task for the day is to ensure the bride’s HMU is perfect the whole day for pictures and the like. I found that night quite a challenge to multi task with make-up and other bridesmaid job. So I’ll say if you ask BFF to do your make-up, don’t give her bridesmaid responsibilty that involves a lot being MIA running errands being here & there lol
I do make-up for living and in cases where I’m hired full day, all I do is keep my eye on the bride like a bridesmaid on a different dress 🙂
I think it’s totally acceptable to ask your bridesmaids to be responsible for their own HMU. I had some instances where I issued different receipts/transactions for one gig and some instances where I’m hired to do 3 out 5 bridesmaids make-up only.
