Oh my gosh!! People can be so rude!!

You and your Fiance are doing the right thing; try to just laugh about it!

It is YOUR wedding!

Don’t pay for her dress.  And do you have to pay for their hair and makeup?  I was Maid/Matron of Honor at my sister’s wedding, and it never occured to me that she should pay for my hair (I did my own makeup).  I’m not offering to pay for my MOH/BM hair/makeup.  I’m doing my own makeup, and someone is coming to do hair, but I’m not paying the whole hair bill (unless no one but me gets hair done).

i think some of your family is definately going overboard, but I do have to speak up and say that when I was a bridesmaid in my friend’s wedding she paid for us all to have our makeup professionally done. She said it was so we could get airbrushing that would last all evening. I suspect it was because myself and another bridesmaid hardly ever wear makeup. The makeup made me look a bit weird (my own mom didn’t recognize me until I was half way down the aisle) but whatever.

DO NOT offer to pay for your sister’s dress. She’ll find something.

You need to put your foot down and explain to the Maid/Matron of Honor and Future Mother-In-Law that X amount goes to hair/makeup, anything above that is on them.

My 2 friends that are in the bridal party were super excited about having professional makup done, so that is why I’m having makeup done at all! I am offering to pay for $50 of their beauty for the day of. my Mother-In-Law is also getting her makeup done, my mom has sensitive skin so that isn’t really an option for her.

My Fiance is an only child, and my Mother-In-Law is definetly thinking our wedding is also her time to shine. She’s definetly going a little bit over the top, getting a hair trial and being super  excited — buying a dress that is a bit above what she was looking to pay. She does make a little fuss about it, but that just her personality. It sounds like your Mother-In-Law is taking it a step beyond what I’m dealing with though, because my Mother-In-Law is very quick to defer to the two of us.
