Hi everyone! I am in need of some serious advice… My wedding is in May of next year and I booked all of my vendors very quickly. I just moved to Colorado two years ago and haven’t found a hair stylist that I go to regularly or like enough to call “mine” just yet. When searching for a hair stylist for my wedding, I started to realize that everyone was way more expensive than I was used to. My Maid/Matron of Honor suggested that I use her friend who was doing her wedding hair. She does great work so I was definitely on board, and she even offered to do it for free… giving me the “friend discount.” Let me just say… This girl and I are not friends. We simply tolerate each other because the Maid/Matron of Honor is a good friend of both of ours. Neither of us had a good first impression of the other and kept our distance after that, but we generally just do not hang out very much. We were the only couple in our group of friends not invited to their wedding, but we didn’t mind. I put that behind me and scheduled her to be my hair stylist AND put them on our guest list… I asked her to sign a contract and she didn’t want to do that, but said she would never leave someone hanging on their big day. I have started having dreams that she isn’t going to show up… I talked to my Maid/Matron of Honor about it and she said there’s no way she would stand me up and said that the hairstylist was bummed I couldn’t hangout with them the previous weekend. I reached out to her after that weekend to schedule my trial and she still hasn’t answered me… I understand if she needs some time to figure out her schedule, but a “I’ll get back to you” would be nice. I have since found a hairstylist that has been cutting my hair and will do my hair for what I consider cheap. She does great work and I really like her… My MOH’s friend doing my hair is literally the only thing that I am stressed about. She isn’t communicating with me and honestly, I don’t really want to be competing with her on MY wedding day and I don’t feel like I should have to invite her simply because she’s doing my hair. Am I being childish? Is it okay to use another hairstylist?
