So I've seen a TON of posts on here about hair and makeup, but they were all very circumstantial - i.e., paying for specific people, or someone from out of town, or makeup artists being a friend and so on..
My only factors are: the girls have to have their hair and makeup done before arriving at the venue and that it's not in my budget to pay for hair and makeup for my bridal party; which is 5 girls. Our budget is very tight just with the general expenses.. cause weddings literally could not be more expensive in 2020. A lot of forums have read said that if I'm requiring professional hair and makeup that I should pay for it, but I'm not requiring it, I was just going to give them the option. So, I was going to just tell the girls that if they want hair and makeup professionally done I could book the appointment for them or give them pricing of the service I'm hiring to do mine. My other option was to get a headcount of who wants their hair and makeup done and host the prep at my sister in laws house like a little party before, with snacks and things like that that I would clearly provide. But the girls, still being responsible for the actual PAYMENT of the service.
What did y'all do in regards to this matter?
