If you have been searching for the perfect bridal hair and makeup artist you’ve probably come to realise that most makeup artists charge more for the bride then they do for the bridesmaids or mother of the bride. Are you wondering why and thinking it’s just a big scam?! Here are your answers
One reason is timing – Bride services always take longer to complete than anyone else in the wedding party and so they should because its the brides day. The bride is the main attraction and they expect to treated as such. I’ve met many brides and I can with certainty that each bride always wants their wedding party to look fantastic and feel great about themselves but in the end, what it comes down to is it’s really all about the bride standing out and therefore more time is often allotted to the bride to ensure her expectations are met. Time is money, that’s why the bride is often charged more than others.
If you are getting charged double the price of your bridesmaids or mother of the bride, you are most likely paying more than you should, a normal amount to pay extra is $20 – $50 more
Now don’t think that your bridesmaids, mother of the bride or any others aren’t going to look good because they are paying less, every client deserves the best possible service available, so you should expect your bridesmaids, friends and family to receive an excellent service on the day and to look beautiful.
