I don’t really think there is a hard and fast rule on what to spend…Like everything wedding-related – it depends on your budget and what you feel comfortable with.

Did the other 2 girls not want to get their make up done because it would cost money? Maybe if they knew you were willing to pay for it they would want it done.

It’s almost impossible to put a price “range” on Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts as everyone’s situation is different. Fiance and I can not afford a ton for our bridal party, so we will only be spending about $50 for each of them.

I know one woman who spent over $300 on each of her BM’s and she had 8 of them. It just depends….

If makeup is a option they should pay. That’s what I did- the choice was theirs.

It’s standard round here to spend approx $50-100 on each bridal party member (paying for hair isn’t really a gift).

In regard to the makeup, if you are not requiring it (i.e. letting them choose) then you do not have to pay for it.

Honestly, bridesmaids gifts are GIFTS so just spend what you can afford.  Make it meaningful and personalize each gift to each friend.
