Alright bees, I’m at a loss of where to start with who and how much to tip our various different vendors, I’ve searched the archives and they’re a bit outdated so would anyone care to shine some light on the following;
Photographers – We paid for a package but do we tip? If so, how much? (They run their own company)
DJ – We paid for a package but he will be an individual from the company. Do we tip him separate of the contract with the company, if so, how much?
Caterer – Our reception venue is in-house catered and we are paying per plate with a service charge of total bill so does that mean the tip is already covered? What about the servers and bartender? Are they tipped separate of the service fee?
Make-up Artist – Doing make-up at our hotel, I’m paying a flat fee for me and 4 bridesmaids, but how much to tip?
Hair – Is the usual 15-20% ok?
Thanks in advance for your help!
