this may be stupid, but why do you need to tip them? I am paying my ceremony musicians a fee that goes straight to them, I feel like tipping would be redundant. I thought you only tip if they don’t get all of the money you pay.

If you’re paying them directly, I don’t think you need to tip them. If you are going through a service or company that sends out musicians, I would tip them $20-25 each!

Based on standard tipping ettiquette, you are are right on. Remember, tipping is up to your discretion and not mandatory. Think of how any of your vendors may have gone above and beyond your standards. For example: during the planning, did you make many changes and were they always accomodating, and always available? If so, tip accordingly.
