What is it about the word 'wedding' that makes people believe they have the right to completely fleece people of all their hard earned cash?
Earlier today I emailed a hairdressing firm regarding my hair/make-up for the Big Day. And do you know what they quoted... £250!!!!! I almost fell backward off my chair when I read the figure - I couldn't believe my eyes & had to scan the words again to truly believe what I had read.
The thing that annoyed me most is that this 'delightful' woman advised the price of mine before advising that it would be £40 per bridesmaid. Now what exactly is she going to do so differently to my hair that she won't to the Bridesmaid - And so much so that it demands an extra £90 on top of their price.
And £100 just for the make-up!!!!
Now don't get me wrong I am aware this woman will have had training in beauty etc. as her website stated so but... £250?!?!?!
This really got my struck and quite angry. What would she have quoted had I said it was for a mere night out?? In fact, S suggested I email from a different account to see what that quote would read.
What is it about the word wedding that entitles people to bend naive Bride & Grooms over & stick it where the sun don't shine?!?!
