    i’m not really sure of the etiquette on this, but for us, we are giving a cash tip to the band, our gratuities are included in our venue price for the staff so we are leaving it at that, unless they give absolutely amazing service, we may tip on top of that.  Our photographer, not sure yet, i’m sure we’ll get him something – like a gift certificate, because he’s been really really awesome so far.  We will definately give our coordinator something. 

    I really believe if someone does an outstanding service, why not show your gratitude in some small way?  it can’t do any harm. 


    basically i thinkk it’s your call on what you want to do.   Some people don’t like to do stuff like that…. i don’t know why

    I tipped most of my vendors because frankly I don’t know them well enough to buy an actual gift that wouldn’t go to waste. That being said I did give my wedding planner a spa basket (along with a generous tip) tha was filled with all sorts of things to aide in relaxation after my wedding. 😉

    I voted no because that’s the case for most of our vendors.  Gratuity is built into our venue bill (they’re handling our food/set up for ceremony/etc.) so I’m not giving them anymore money, lol.  They made sure they got their tip which makes sense.

    Don’t plan to tip our photographer either because I think it’s silly to tip someone when you have no clue how the pictures will turn out.  Also, not really sure if we’ll be tipping the DJ or florist.  Maybe the florist because they’re open to delivering on a Sunday when they’re not open.  I think I’d be more inclined to tip them if everything showed up nice and such…since I feel like they’d be going above and beyond.

    We will probably tip our officiant and ceremony musician.  Not sure what the etiquette is on any of it.  I mean, my personal opinion is that everything wedding related costs so much money already…and people wouldn’t come if you weren’t already making it worth their time?  Sounds mean, but that’s how I feel.  I think we will only be tipping when someone goes above and beyond.

    Hell no – they cost enough and I see no reason to tip.
