Just a quick question re tipping: we will obv be tipping the wait staff/bar staff (we’ll pop some cash in an envelope for them), but I was wondering what the etiquette is on tipping the event co-ordinator (employed by the venue; she’ll be there on the day), and also the manager? I know you wouldn’t usually tip the manager but he’s going to be helping a lot with co-ordinating guests, getting them from A to B, announcing our arrival etc. But, I don’t want to look insulting (tipping isn’t as big in the UK as it is in America).

We tipped the event coordinator and you are supposed to tip the Maitre’D (In charge of kitchen staff), i believe. My coordinator at the venue did both so we just tipped him.

I think from what i remember we just tipped the waiting staff. I gave flowers to the venue manager. The venue manager was the same person that acted as co-ordinator.
I tipped my hair stylist and make up lady too.

Gratuity was included on our bill for the night, so we didn’t tip anyone. We tipped the limo driver, the hairstylist and the DJ, but that was it.
