I am getting married in Kansas City next January, but growing up on the West Coast means my entire bridal party is going to have to fly in for the weekend. I have chosen Bridesmaids dresses that are fairly cheap (less than $150) and my fiancé and I will be helping to provide discounts on their flights and hotel rooms for the weekend, (unfortunately we can't provide that full expense). My mom has reserved us all a beautiful 2 story loft in downtown KC to be used as the Bridal Suite the night before/day of for all of us to get ready with the photographer. My question is who pays for their hair and makeup? I have found a company that can take care of all Bridesmaids and MOB/MOG and myself for $200 a piece (airbrush makeup to last all day/blowouts and updos) and I am unsure if it its proper etiquette to ask them to pay or do I just take care of that expense?
Is it normal to have bridal guilt asking them to pay for so much (the dress, flights, hotel, hair and makeup... in addition to a Bachelorette weekend in October) or is this what being a bridesmaid is?
