So I’m just not sure how to bring up this subject with my mil, sil nd maybe my friend but not her so much cause she is cruisy. I am wanting to invite Them to come and get their hair done the morning of the wedding and I will pay for them. However i don’t really even no how to bring that up and especially dont know how to say you can get your makeup done too but you’ll have to pay and it’ll be $55 each? Or should I just pay for it all if they want it and just not worry about the money?

@Mrs2b2014: I think it’s totally fine to say, if you’d like makeup done professional it costs xx amount. Since you aren’t “requiring” them to have pro makeup for the day, as some bridezillas do, there is nothing wrong with giving them the option.

If you can afford it and want them to get their hair and makeup professionally done, then pay for it.
If paying for it is a bit tight and you don’t care whether they do or don’t say, “At 8am, I have booked us appointments to get our hair done. I will be getting my makeup professionally done and if you want to, you can, too. The only thing is, the hair is on me, but the makeup would be an additional $55.”
Honestly, the fact that you’re paying for ANYTHING should be greatly appreciated!! I got my hair done professionally for both weddings I’ve been in and paid $70 and $85 for each myself. I always do my own makeup.

@Mrs2b2014: I arranged services for myself at the hotel, told the BM’s and mom’s what it cost, and offerend to have them join me. They are 100% free to do their own hair and make up or go somewhere of their choosing. If you are not mandating that they have these things done to your liking, then you don’t have to pay for it.

Thanks I’m sure they will be appreciative of getting The hair free I just had talking about money/requesting money. As much as our wedding is over what I wanted to spend we could afford to pay for it but I don’t think they hhave to have it if u know what I mean. I’m paying for our bridesmaids hair and makeup and my mums and want to invite my friend, mil and sil for hair and ill pay but think ill just offer makeup to them for $50.

I would probably just offer what you can pay for. As in “Hair’s on me. I’m also going to have my make-up done but you guys are welcome do to whatever you want on that front.”
