I am a make up artist and I do freelance make up for Weddings, proms, balls, events in general. My aunt asked me to do make up for her son upcoming wedding, I was honored at this and said yes and gave her my pricing. I also gave her a considerable discount as well. My reg pricing is 95 for bride including rehearsal dinner, and 60 per additional person. For testing makeup application (to see if they like my work) it's 100 kit fee if they dont like me and it's FREE if they do so I know that I'm not wasting my time. For my family I did Bride at 75 and each additional person is 40 bucks. IF you even go to a mall min you pay is 50 per person and you have to pay for the EVERY application. You dont get free time to test it out it costs 50 everytime and then additional money for the actual day of the event. She also came to me because the other prices that she was quoted was "outrages" and I know that she came to me cause I'd give her a deal of sorts. ( this Aunt is also not well liked by my mother, uncle T, and grandparents, she used to be this all family love person, until my Uncle F came into some money. Now she's this rich chick who doesn't work, nice house, travels the world, and we are beneath her attitude. We deal because we adore my Uncle F) So I sent her an email telling her my prices and she forwarded them on to the bride ( my cousins fiancee) I met up with her a couple weeks later to do makeup application beforehand so I know exactly what they like/want so the day of the wedding I can just knock em out. We went over prices again and she wrote me a deposit for 4 out of the 10 girls I'm doing make upfor. Forward onto yesterday.. it's my mothers birthday as with my grandmothers birthday we're talking casually and I bring up that I haven't been able to get ahold of the bride to do her side of the family and we need to get together really soon.(wedding is Sept 5th) I tell her I can't meet her(aunt) the last weekend of August because I'm moving into a house so I'll be busy that week but I'm free up till the last week of August. Right off the bat my Aunt says "well if you can't make time to meet her cause of your house then let me know so we can find someone else!" Tell her thats not what I said, just that I need to her to call me so we can get together for her family beforehand thats not a problem. she then tells me that the email I sent her about my prices were not what we has discussed at the first meet up. She said that I had told her in my email that I would do make up on all the women/girls for BOTH rehearsal dinner and wedding. I tell her no I didnt say that in the email and I explain the Bride is included in the price but each additional person will be 40 extra. Doing 10 women/girls for a rehearsal dinner and wedding is doing 20 for half price! This would not be something that I agreed to or wrote in the inital email. I stated the prices and then the bride that included rehersal. She says since I didn't specify in the email I should do all 10 women for rehearsal andwedding EVEN THOUGH.. we went over it together for the first make up application specifying everything before starting. Now she's telling me the girls I did the first day wont be getting make up now so basically I wasted my time doing their make up. (Mind you.. all of this is in front of our family on my mothers birthday and grandmothers birthday) She goes on how I'm ruining her name for suggesting me and so on if I'm not going to honor my intial email. I told her pricing and specified the rest when we all go together and we were all in agreeance. I tell her I"m not going to discuss this further in front of family and it's highly uncomfortable when you are trying to attack me into something I didn't agree too in front of our family, and I walk outside to the porch to calm down. So now I feel like not even doing it at all. I'm pissed off and I would never agree to do what she's saying because thats A LOT of work. each person is 45 min... I would never state I'd do everyones make upfor a rehearsal dinner and the wedding. I'd be losing out on money and time. because I didn't specify "Only the bride" in the email ( when I thought it was pretty obvious) she wants me to do everyone. I figure give her money back (deposit was 195) and find someone else. I didn't think I'd have to draw up a contract for family for the pricing and everything. She gave me attitude right off the bat about the last week of august (which I can't change due to moving). I simply asked her to speak with the bride since I can't get ahold of her for the rest of her family. So threatening to find another person based on that is crazy and trying to get free make up on other stuff. I dont feel like doing it and hell she can try and find a place that will do it for less than what I'm providing. I'm takin a hit and giving a discount on top of meeting her and all the party at their homes without charging. (they are appox 60 miles from me) I dont however want to have bad blood with the family either so I'm kinda stuck. ok ok I'm goin on but I'm upset and babbeling. What should I do? Cliffs: Hookin up family with a make up deal, trying to change the pricing on me when I'm already hooken her up, threatening going to someone else, I wanna just cancel the whole deal then, but I dont want bad blood.
