    Photographer and DJ get a tip if they are not the owners of the company. You tip the photographer at the reception and it depends on how well you think he/she did! Its normally between $50-100. DJ… same thing.

    Ceremony musicians – you can tip. Normally about $20 per person.

    Restaurant staff- A service charge is the tip included. At least it was for mine. I asked the event coordinator for the reception site if that was tip included… she said yes.

    Officiant – No need to give a tip… it is usually a donation to the church. Though a nice Thank You card is always a good idea!

    And don’t feel cheap! We all wonder about these things because we just don’t know the protocol! I hope that helps!

    TP to Bee pretty much said what I was going to say. However, I was told you should give the officiant a “donation” after the donation to the church. I don’t think that’s a requirement, though.
