hh10 :  Paying for the dress has the added bonus of not having to deal with getting all the girls to place their orders.  You see enough “my bridesmaid wouldn’t order her dress on time so I’ve decapitated her” posts to know that can be a problem.

hh10 :  Dress. Professional hair/makeup is optional, a dress is not!

Dress, however, if you’re requiring that they have their hair/make-up professionally done you should pay for that too.

I would rather have my hair/make-up paid for. The dress is an expected expense; the rest is not.

Dress. You shouldn’t expect hair+makeup be pro, so I can do that myself. Even if I paid a pro itd likely be cheaper than the dress anyways.

I think it would depend on the cost of each: I’m not very good at my hair/make-up, so I’d prefer that. But if the dress was $200+, I’d opt to have the dress paid for and I’d figure out my hair/make-up myself.
