        PS is it good etiquette to pay for the bridesmaids' hair and makeup?
        Hey BC.

        I would say that traditionally, it was etiquette to pay for everything for the bridesmaids, including their hair and make-up, but times have changed and it is much more acceptable and common now for bridesmaids to pay some, or all, of their own way.

        hair and make-up are the 'nice-to-haves' and can be done at no cost if they do them themselves. If you're looking at saving some money, I'd just let them know in advance you won't be paying for them (or just tell them what you will be paying for) and then they can decide themselves if they want to pay themselves, or do it themselves.

        Hope that helps...GOOD LUCK!

            Thanks Katie, I think I might just pay to have their hair done, esp because I'm not sure myself if I want my makeup done at the salon. Ive asked Ana for sample pics of the MUA's work, I'm waiting to hear back from the spa manager.
            Finally got the last of my RSVP's yesterday (deadline), gosh I can't believe how some people like to wait last minute! Anyway, time to order my wedding favours :)
            Hope your planning is going well!

              ah brilliant that you've got all your rsvps back now!! what are you doing for your wedding favours?

              I've already got contingency plans in place in case I don't like how they do my hair and make up for the trial!!

              my planning seems to be neverending and i'm at that point now that I don't even know where to start!!

                Hi Katie, I'm ordering sandals from partyflops !!!

                What is your contingency plan? are you going to practice doing hair and make up on your own or maybe get one of your girls to do it?

                lol i feel the same way and im about a month away! it still feels neverending, haha but i guess its all going to be worth it in the end, i just have to remind myself I'm planning the happiest day of my life :)

                  Ah cool, I need to get some for my BMs too!!

                  My contingency plan is that I'm going to get my hairdresser here in the UK to do my hair for me while by BMs watch and take notes (!!) then if I hate what they do in Mexico, my BMs can do my hair for me.

                  Planning on doing the same for my make-up too somehow! plus one of my BM is planning on going on a make up course in March so fingers crossed that goes ahead and then she'll be able to do mine anyway!!

                  I NEED to have contingency plans for both or I will be worrying about 'what if i don't like it' etc the whole time beforehand. this way, I'll keep myself a little saner!!

                  Wow, only a month!!!!!! how exciting!! I'm now just under the 6 month mark!! xx

                    LOVE everyone's backup plans for hair and makeup!! LOL, I am bringing pictures of hair styles I like and then it should be easy for them. As for makeup I am not a makeup girl so I'm just worried it'll be to much for me. Luckily my MOH is a makeup artist so she can fix anything in that department I dont like. She's also doing her own makeup and my other bridesmaid! SOO EXCITED!
                    8 DAYS UNTIL I LEAVE!!

                    ps. Is there blowdryers in the rooms?
                    Life's good when you're a Mrs!

                      Wow! I have missed a few posts!
                      Lin& Scott...have a wonderful wedding!
                      BC Bride: great idea on the partyflops! I'm just starting to think about that sort of stuff.

                      Still haven't decided about going with Transat pkg or directly with hotel? Help ladies!

                      I'm having enough trouble trying to add a picture to my profile on here too. I wonder if I can hire a forum coordinator
