Your friend is right. In general, you don’t need to tip anybody who is their own boss. Like you said, they have set their own prices. This is why, as a wedding planner, I never expect a tip from my clients and tell my clients so – but if they give me one, I feel great!

A thank you card isn’t necessary either, but it’s very sweet and something they can add to their portfolio. If they have a place online where you can leave a nice review for them, that is ALWAYS appreciated!

I am a personal chef, and I make wedding cakes on the side when I don’t work weekends. I have never been given a tip for a wedding cake. If anything, whoever gives me the check may round up the total, from $195 to $200. 

I don’t think it is necessary.
