Is it wrong for me to request that the bridal party only have french manicures or clear/nude nails? My color scheme is black and white and I don't want anyone showing up will blue, green, pink nails etc

    No, not as long as you’re paying for their manicure. No pay, no say.

    Honestly, I think it's perfectly fine to ask for them to keep their nails neutral without paying. Now, if they dont do it, there's not much you can do.

    I'm not paying. In my circle the girls pay for their own nails and usually the bride says what they would like. I just didn't know if it was wrong to do so. They don't have to have their nails done professionally. But done come with loud insane colors

    I think asking them to do it is resonable....not like your saying you have to have them done just saying if they do them please do neutral colors is all that sounds fair to me doesnt cost much to change color afterward anyway if they want them diff colors then wedding

    I say unless you are. Paying you should not get a say on hair color , nails or makeup. But you said that’s how you all do it so we are all different.

    I don’t believe in this circumstance that is necessarily true. I’m not paying for my girl’s nails and I have asked them all to stay in the color pallet and they are just fine with that. I think it’s pretty understandable with the colors being black and white.

    Agree ^^^

    Plus most friends want you to be happy on your day so they will do as much as they can. Especially resonable things .

    No not wrong. My sisters wanted nude nails from everyone. Only one person decided to get a junk nail(multiple jewels) done on one finger of each hand.

    I think as long as you are allowing multiple options it’s ok not to pay for nails. I am asking my girls to wear nude, a muted pink or purple to match their dress, silver to match jewelry, white, or other non-crazy colors (one always does French nails so I’m fine with that). I’ve mentioned it to them already and that nails are up to them within those parameters.

    I agree with no pay no say. For nails and make up. If you're not paying for it then you can suggest it but you kind of have to suck it up if you don't like it. Nobody but you cares about the Bridesmaids nails anyway, this is a good example of something to let go for your own mental well being.

    I think you definitely could ask them to stay neutral and not pay! Idk, I personally always do neutral nails when I’m in a wedding, to not stand out!

    I don't think it's too much to ask, as long as you're not expecting them to get them professionally done. My cousin gave out nail polishes in her wedding colors as part of her bridal party gifts and asked that we painted our nails with one of them for the wedding day so maybe you could do that?
    Also, I see people keep bringing up makeup and it's wild. If I'm paying for photos, it's not an extreme request to ask no one wear intense eyeliner or bright lipstick. That's a totally normal request. It's common etiquette as a wedding guest/wedding party member to not wear anything that pops too much/would take attention from the bride.
    I wore red lipstick from 18-21 every day, I wasn't offended both of the times I was in a wedding party and the bride's asked me to wear muted lipstick instead because it's a simple request for their big day. Who's going to be so petty that they won't do their makeup a certain way for ONE day? SMH.
