I have a question…
The girl that’s doing my hair has done it quite a few times whenever I’m on the east coast & at best, we’re acquaintances.
For the wedding, she’ll be doing two looks & was wondering that after we finish the final look, is it bad if she goes home or do I have her as a guest?
The wedding is only 100 people & it’s costing us $300 a person.
So not only would I pay for my bridal party, I’d shell out another $600 for her & the hubby.

No, you do not have to invite her. It’s common for hair stylists to be hired for part of a day to do bridal looks or bridal party looks and then they go home. Just because you chat with her while she does your hair does not mean that she will be offended that she isn’t invited to the wedding. She may have other clients to attend to at other weddings or in her salon as well that day, so you might even be putting her in an awkward spot by extending the invite.

notmeeither : true, but she’s doing a total of 11 of us & the second look will be during the cocktail hour around 6 pm. I just don’t wanna come off rude.

You could offer her a vendor meal if you really want to, but it’s not necessary.

I’ve never heard of inviting hair or makeup to the reception- and definitely not extending the invitation to their spouse! The only person who etiquette dictates needs an invitation is your officiant. Then just vendor meals for band/dj, photographer, and any other vendors who are actually working your reception.

You definitely don’t need to. If she was stuck with you over dinner time I’d say make sure she gets fed. I’m kind of in the opposite predicament, my first stylist bailed and I’m now begging a guest who’s also a stylist to help me out lol.

Huh? Of course you don’t have to invite the hairstylist. You’re paying her for her work!
