My mother has had the same hairdresser for years! I guess you could say they are also friendly/friends.
Due to her being so close to our venue, we were going to see if she could do my hair for the wedding. She typically doesn’t work Saturdays so we’d be hiring her specifically for the wedding. I was thinking of having her do my hair on site too.
The question is…should we also invite her (and guest) to the wedding?
Thanks in advance for opinions/advice!

i’ve never heard of anyone inviting the hairdresser to the wedding. would you invite her if she wasn’t the hairdresser and just as your mothers friend? if not i think it isn’t nesessary

My mom has the same kind of relationship with her hairdresser. We aren’t getting married in my home town though so I won’t be having this issue, but if we were I would be 🙂 I thought about it and I would probably invite her. If she wasn’t going to be doing my hair then I wouldn’t even think about it, but b/c she is and you are pretty much friends anyway I think it would be a nice gesture. BUT i also don’t think you need to feel compelled to invite her, I’m just saying if I was in your situation than I would. Oh and I should mention that she has been MY hairdresser pretty much since I was 12, so I think that adds to it too 🙂

I would invite her…but my hairdresser is also serving as the caterer so I guess I’m not the right one to ask : )

I wouldn’t invite her unless she is actually a family friend that you regularly socialize with outside of her job. If you (not your mother) don’t, then just use her services as a vendor and don’t invite her.
My sister is my regular hairdresser. But if she wasn’t my sister, I still would not invite her, because she would be a vendor, not a friend. The exception would be if she was a close friend I regularly hang out with who just happens to have that career.
Never invite people out of obligation just to fill space. If you can’t imagine the day without them, invite them. If they are just “filler” guests to make other people happy, cut them from the list.
