    I’m tipping anyone who doesn’t own their company – so no photographer, officiant. We will tip the DJ if we like him, hair, and make up. The flowers are being assembled by my SIL, so no florist to tip.

    We tipped everyone regardless of if they owned their own business. We also tipped the bakery delivery person & limo driver.

    We tipped $10 for delivery, 20% for hair, make up and the limo, and $100-$200 for all the rest. Don’t forget about the bar tenders and servers at your venue if that isn’t in your contract.
