If they want to do it then go ahead and let them- there is no stopping them. But if you are confident in your own skills to put your hair up and do your makeup then there is no reason for you to pay someone else to do it.  Also, if they are looking to do it on your dime say no- You are gifting them the mani/pedi, if they want their hair done they can do it on their own.

I agree with accorn, if you want to do it, go for it, but don’t let them talk you into paying for their hair. Just let them know that if you’re doing your own hair, you’re not paying for someone to do theirs.

I can understand how you feel.  I think that given the fact that you won’t have time for a trial, it would be easiest/least stressful to do your own hair and know exactly what you are getting. 

As for the Moms and BMs, it’s not their wedding so they don’t need to be as concerned as you are about it looking exactly the way you want it.

I remember watching one of those wedding shows a while back and the bride was an editor for a bridal magazine.  She learned how to do her own updo before the wedding so that she could do it herself (it was also a DW)

I applaud your confidence in your own abilities!

As a great bonding experience maybe you can have a DIY beauty bash for all of your BM’s before the wedding so that they can all practice a bit. It would be fun, and you could give help to anyone feeling a bit insecure. 

Good luck!

You go for it! I’m having a casual wedding and I don’t really get dressed up much now-a-days anyways. I’m having a non-professional friend help me with my makeup and hair. Don’t need to spend the extra cash and don’t want to chance hating the results! What I think is WIERD is seeing beautiful wedding pictures, but I don’t recognize the bride because she NEVER wears her hair or makeup like that!

I think it’s inspirational for brides to do their own hair/makeup, with the help of friends or on their own. In a lot of ways, I feel like it could reduce stress not to deal with strangers on such an important day. If they want their hair done…great. I wouldn’t pay for it 🙂 But if you don’t want your hair done, don’t worry! They’ll see how beautiful you look!
