Has anyone had a mani/pedi day for the girls the day before the wedding? I was thinking of having my bridesmaids meet me for a mani/pedi before the rehearsal the day before the wedding. Any recommendations of where to go in the Burbank/San Fernando Valley/Santa Clarita area?
And what is the etiquette for such an event? Did you pay for everyone? Did everyone think they would pay for themselves? About how much did it cost you if you paid for everyone (and what did they get done)?
I’ve been thinking of asking everyone to meet for a lunch/mani/pedi day in lieu of a bachelorette (I’m not really one for nights on the town). I’d like to pay for everyone’s mani/pedi but I’m not sure what that would really set me back. And I’m kind of afraid I’ll end up paying for 5 sets of gel/acrylic nails and pedicures, when I can’t really afford all that.

Hey – I hear you. I was thinking the same thing; ended up dropping the idea b/c it seemed like one more thing to ask people to pay for, or to have to come up with $ to pay for myself.
But if it’s still on, I did a mani/pedi with my Maid/Matron of Honor in Santa Clarita a day or two before wedding at a place called Nail Forum; definitely had room for a group, not sure it’s the best place. It has kind of mixed reviews, but it’s worth checking out.

@IAmLemondrop: I like Oasis Nail Spa in Burbank. I think there are two locaitons … I like the one closet to the Burbank Portos. I think I’ve seen them to parties for a bunch of girls and they had drinks! It looked like fun. They do such a great job on my nails!

I was a bridesmaid in my Fiance’s sisters wedding recently, and what she did was just tell us “hey I am going to get my nails done saturday morning, anyone is welcome to join me”. This way we knew we’d be paying for ourselves, and there was no pressure to go really but it was something fun to do before the wedding together.
