Hey there! What are ppl鈥檚 thoughts with makeup applications and the bridal party? I鈥檓 considering gifting this to my party (MOH, 2xBM鈥檚 & maybe my stepmom鈥檚) as a thank you... Anyone else done this? Or have you stuck with little gifts for them & they pay for their own makeup? Thoughts?

    Thanks Deziray. I think it鈥檚 a nice gesture for sure, and I want them to be pampered a bit too!

    Thanks, me too! 馃槉 I鈥檓 really wanting to lessen as much financial stress for them as possible (I have been in many weddings where that wasn鈥檛 considered, and it鈥檚 really awful!) and I think it鈥檚 a great thing to gift.

    I was planning on doing this. A couple of my girls have mentioned that they can't afford to get both their hair and makeup done. So I think I might just pay the difference for them.

    I love the idea of gifting makeup applications to the bridal party. I think it's a great gift and something that not everyone who's in a bridal party can afford on their own.

    Every bride is different in the way they see how pay for the wedding party.

    Your part of the getting ready is fair since you haven't given any gifts or anything. Others go out more for what they want to do beyond their budget.

    My husband and i did purchase gifts for the wedding party as MOHs got sampler box of perfumes they chose their scent and BM (Best Men) got Calvin Klien cologne sets.

    You are paying for enough and a Thank you card is enough with a personal message.

    I think every wedding is different - but I won't be paying for the makeup to be done. I don't like how it's paying for something for my own benefit (I mean, it's so they look a certain way for my wedding and my pictures). With that being said - I wouldn't make them pay for it. If I'm the one forcing it on them then I would pay. As it is, they can do their own makeup. Heck, they can go without any makeup at all!

    Every wedding I have been in we pay for our own makeup and then get a small gift- all depends on your budget your gift. I would ask them what they would prefer- some girls rather cover that or some would like a keepsake

    I only have one person standing with me - my sister. For her I paid for her dress and make up and hair.

    i really like the idea of giving them a gift that鈥檚 practical so paying for the make up is a perfect idea to me!

    Thanks Madisyn. I really think so too. And I like the idea of earrings or something to wear the day of too! Been considering something sweet like that. 馃槉

    That sounds nice, Casey! I really like the idea of gifting makeup & hair for them, it honestly makes more sense to me. Such a lovely thing to have them sharing the day with me, I want to thank them (and not be a financial burden for them!). And having a simple little 鈥渢akeaway鈥 gift is really sweet too! I鈥檓 thinking that鈥檚 what I鈥檒l do as well (leaning towards pashminas that they鈥檒l wear that day). Thanks!

    I am going to be paying for the hair and makeup for my girls as a thank you. Then I will most likely do a personalized cup and then some hair ties that say 鈥 bridesmaid鈥. Just something simple!

    I'm paying for my girls' hairstyling as my big 'gift' to them, and I'm thinking of pairing it with a set of earrings to wear on the day of and hopefully to keep. If you want professional makeup/hair done for your crew, I think it's best if you front the cost and consider it part of their gift.
