ktb19 :  If you are not hiring anyone you are not required to for either mom. They should be able to find their own stylist and makeup artist if they really want to pay for that to be done. They’re grown ups, they can figure it out!

gunnabamissus :  Agree with this. There’s no obligation for you to take on the financial responsibilty for services that you’re not even booking for yourself on your big day.

ktb19 :  You are a sweetie! I specifically do not want either mom to be there first thing in the morning with me and the bridesmaids (I really want a calm and relaxing enviroment and they both stress me out so much) so I didn’t even give them the option of hair and makeup with us! I am doing my own makeup and all my bridesmaids and my hair stylist is scheduled for only the 4 of us, so I just told both moms they had to figure it out and what time to show up ready for pictures!

I would tell Future Mother-In-Law that you are not hiring a makeup artist/hairstylist for your wedding, so if Future Mother-In-Law wants her hair and makeup done for your wedding she can get it done at a salon of her chosing.

While you aren’t responislbe for them, I did hire a MUA for my mom/FMIL. My friend is doing mine for free, but she didn’t want to do everyone’s (totally understand), but some BM’s and the mom’s wanted their makeup done, so I hired a MUA. They will pay her the day of after she is finished, so really I just had to book her. She is also doing a couple of BM’s hair, so that will help out as well! You might look into it if you are getting married in your hometown. My mom is from out of town and had no idea where to book, so I just took care of it! Also, we are all getting ready at the hotel, so I wanted to book someone that would come to there, I didn’t want everyone going all over different places to get their hair/makeup done on the morning of the wedding.
