Celebrate Your Ladies
There’s a time honored tradition of gifting for your bridesmaids. Over the years we’ve seen so many different ideas but none quite compare to giving the gift of beauty for the day. It’s a gift that will not be easily forgotten, you and your girls will remember all the love, laughs and tears shared during those last single girl moments each and every time you look at your photos for decades to come. It seems simple enough but none the less we get questions every day on the do’s, don’ts and etiquette when it comes to bridal party hair and makeup for your wedding. In fact, the number one question we get is: Are brides expected to pay for bridesmaids hair and makeup?
The general rule of etiquette is that If the bride insists on having professional hair and/or makeup done then the bride should cover this cost. If you have left this as on optional item for your attendants then generally speaking each person should cover their own cost.
In two snaps…Here’s why gifting at least bridal makeup to your bridal attendees can be a major win for you, the bride!
By giving each of them the gift of beauty on your day it insures that everyone in your photos will have a cohesive look, minimize editing needs and increases the quality of your photos. Our 15 hour transfer resistant guarantee will prevent any tears or too much to drink from messing up your maid of honor’s face.

What about gratuities? Who covers that?
Tipping your makeup artist and stylist is a great way to thank your artistry team for creating an exceptional and relaxing day of experience for your bridesmaids.
In many countries tipping is not a part of their day to day practices. Tips and their amount are a matter of social custom, and the custom varies between countries and settings. In some locations tipping is discouraged and considered insulting; while in some other locations tipping is expected from customers. In Japan for instance tipping is not a part of the culture. It is not expected and can cause confusion. Japanese people see tipping as insulting. Let me add one more twist to this whole tipping scenario for you, as if I haven’t given you enough to think about already. In some regions a service charge is automatically added to your bill.
We are privileged to work with couples from virtually every country and culture so what is a planning couple to do and what should a wedding service provider expect?
What we have found works best is for the bride to plan for and include any gratuities in her balance. This is particularly a nice gesture if bridal party is paying for their own services.
