Looking for some honest opinions here on if my approach to bridesmaids hair/makeup/nails is tacky or not...
nails: I will be getting my nails done the Friday morning before the wedding at my nail salon. I’m going to invite all 5 bridesmaids to come with, and anyone who gets them done there I plan to pay for. If they aren’t able to attend, I plan to give them the name of the polish (it’s a gel) for them to get done on their own, or I will also let them know I will have a bottle of a very similar colored regular polish the morning of while we are getting ready so they would then need to come with no color on and we can paint them that morning.
Hair: I have a HMUA coming, I will be paying for all of them to have their hair done. This was the more expensive of the two services, and I think I might want to have a say in what their hair looks like.
Makeup: this is not something that I am going to require, but all bridesmaids have expressed interest in having their makeup done. I plan to have them cover this on their own if it’s something they want, otherwise they can do it on their own. I have a hmua coming that I can make available to them, they just need to let me know ahead of time so I can collect money from them to in turn pay her. I would also offer that if they decide to have her do the service I will cover the tip (not sure if that’s necessary, but I want to avoid any awkward exchange of cash/money on my wedding day where possible).
basically I just don’t know if it’s tacky to have them paying for a service on their own that I’ve made optional.
