Can any of you tell me if you have tipped or will tip your planner? If this is something that commonly occurs, then I would like to add it into our budget.
What about the vendors? OMG how do people afford all of this? Weddings are already expensive and handing over more $$$ for tips…did any of you?

I’m planning on tipping my planner or at the very list getting her a gift. She’s costing $1100.00 but thus far has been such a huge help, I don’t know why she didn’t/doesn’t charge more. I know some people disagree on this but she is pretty much the only one I’m tipping. My caterer includes gratuity. My photographer will be making aprox. $500.00 an hour! I’m sorry but I cannot see tipping on top of that, I won’t be able to buy any of the pics she takes if I paid her more! My DJ has a 4 hour minimum but we only need him for 3 so I’m counting that extra $ as his tip already, my rental company also already includes gratuity.

@MrsPinkPeony: do you mind sharing who your wedding planner is? A gf of mine is going to charleston in July to meet with vendors and she is looking into wedding planners as well.
