@jessyrez:  We tipped each limo driver 20% (OUCH–we had two. One for the ceremony/reception/hotel travel, and a second for going out dancing that night), the reception/cake tip was included, the photog owned his business (so no tip), I did the flowers, the ceremony tip was included in the Church use costs, and I tipped $30 on my $100 hair and make up bill.

@jessyrez:  We tipped our limo 20% which was madatory (just used the credit card),  and I tipped my hair/MUA with cash (forget how much but it covered all my girls so alot) and also our bartenders because they rocked!  We hosted a toonie bar so we tipped them with some of the earnings from the bar at the end of the night.  And our caterer had the gratuity built into thier contract and our photographer was self-employed so no tip.

@jessyrez:  I have a Day-of Coordinator hired, and I’ll be giving her my tips to distribute.  I used this as a guide for who to tip and how much.  Make sure your venue isn’t charging you a service tip…mine is charging 20% so I don’t have to tip anyone on top of that!
