A coworker and friend of mine is getting married this Saturday. We are both Stylists and she asked me months ago to do the bridal party hair. I agreed and I'm very excited about it.
She asked me the other day what I would like to be paid, and her mother was going to pay me. I toldher I would like to do it for free, as a wedding gift to her. Weddings are so expensive, and Im happy to help take that cost away and lighten up her wedding budget a bit. It is 4 bridesmaids and her step mothers hair I'm doing, and I would normally charge 50 per updo. I'm also taking a Saturday off from work to do it, which means I will be giving up a busy moneymaking day at the salon.
My question is, do I still need to get her an actual wedding gift? I've gotten mixed answers IRL about this. Part of me just feels awful to show up wo a gift, but the help with the hair is fairly nice gift already.
