I agree that a free hairstyle for your mother is a strange gift for your wedding. I don’t see a reason that you would need to write a thank you, but they might be offended if you don’t. Maybe you should just write them a thank you to be safe.

If it was truly meant to be a “gift” to you and your fiance, I would think that the stylist would have at least sent you a card or told you himself. I wouldn’t send a thank-you card unless either of those instances occur.

That just sounds so obsurd!

Hahah! That is a new one! I would say, yes, write the thank you note. Lol.

“Dear ____

Thank you so much for styling my mother’s hair. Fiance and I are truly grateful and this will be a great help to our future.

Sincerely

FelicityRose”

Ya that just doesn’t sound right. What a bizarro gift. Maybe it’s a congratulations on your daughter getting married gift for your mom but I fail to see how this is a wedding gift to YOU.

Um, I don’t get it.  As a ‘wedding gift’ to you, they did your Mother’s hair for free?  I’m sorry, if that’s the case, I wouldn’t send a thank you.  You didn’t receive anything, nor did they even send you a card to express their intentions.  That is really, really strange.

I wouldn’t send a thank you.  No matter what this guy says, this is not a gift to you.  A gift to your mother on the occasion of her daughter’s marriage maybe, but not a gift to you.  She can write a thank you note if she chooses, but you don’t have to.

Maybe it would be a nice gesture for your mom to send a thank you note…since the gift is really for her.
