So, we already have FI's uncle giving us photography as a wedding gift. Apparently, his Aunt from NYC is a makeup artist who started out as a consultant for Chanel in Manhattan and does it free lance now in NYC. She told my FI of all these celebrities that she's done, etc etc. Apparently she wants to do my makeup for the wedding.
It sounds silly, but she lives on the other side of the country, so I'd basically be waiting until a day or so before the wedding to see what my wedding makeup would look like. It makes me nervous.It sounds insulting to say "gee, I'm not sure about your makeup application ability, and I don't want to agree to such a gift without a test run." Especially when you consider this is the relative my FI is closest to, ever since his mom passed away.
I'm excited, in theory, about her offer. But I'm super type A, and I plan things way in advance. How would you handle this--should I just shut up and be thrilled that a professional makeup artist has offered to do my wedding day makeup? I really need to hear if I"m being too silly about this.
