I am having a smaller wedding in a little bit less than a year (September 2023). I have 5 bridesmaids that are my two sisters and then the others are my sister in laws.
I want to give a little back information-
I am paying for my entire wedding party members AND their families hotels for the night before, night of, and morning after the wedding.
It is a micro wedding but we are paying for everyone's alcohol
I am only asking them to buy a dress that I have found for less than 100$ (they can choose to buy a different one but I found this one I love and its super cheap so I am giving them the option to get it if they would like).
Now onto the hair and makeup......
Is it rude to ask them to pay for their hair and makeup? Total for each person for both services is less than $200. I want them all to get their hair and makeup done because I want us to all have the same sort of look. I dont want us to clash in our pictures and the pictures end up not coming out good.
Is it rude to tell them they cannot be a part of the bridal party if they refuse to pay for these things?
