I am getting my hair done and I don’t want to leave my bms out of the process. Therefore, I am going to pay for them to get their hair done as well. However, according to the quote I got, a simple blow out and style is less than half the price of an updo. I would really prefer they wear their hair down anyway. I can’t afford to get them all updos but I can afford to get them all blown out. Is this ok?

@jackndiane: If you’re paying for the styling, then yes you can ask for it to be a certain way. The only case in which I wouldn’t want you to do it is if you have a friend who wears their hair in braids for several weeks at a time, and you wanted them to be taken out for the wedding.

I think if you are paying for it, then that is fine. Maybe you could just let them know that you would like for everyone to wear their hair down, and that you are paying for a blowout. I would be fine with it if I were a Bridesmaid or Best Man.

If you’re paying, then you can ask them to do whatever you want style-wise.

I think it would be okay. In every wedding that I’ve ever been in I was always told if it should be up or down, and in those they weren’t paying for a haridresser! I think you will be fine, especially since you are paying. Plus I love hair that is down!

Of course that’s ok! My girls expect me to direct their style – I just haven’t decided yet. Lol.

I think it will totally be okay. Particularly if you’re doing an updo – then you can have an updo, and have the contrast of your bridesmaids with hair down!

Yeah, I agree. It is totally ok! Your paying, and its YOUR wedding!
