    Gratuity is included in with the caterer pricing. 

    I’m tipping our officiant, who are good friends of mine

    I’m tipping my photographer, who is also a professional friend of mine 

    I’m tipping my hair stylist. She’s closing up shop and coming to the hotel to do my hair.  She’s been my stylist for 7 years now. 


    I’m NOT tipping my cake or flower person – they charge a traveling fee, way more than it costs in gas to get there, so I don’t see a point in tipping them for this.

    We have a hair stylist, photographer, second shooter that she’s bringing, a DJ, and limo drivers outside of the venue. The limo company strongly strongly strongly recommends tipping 20% to the drivers, so I’ll do that. I always tip for hair too. The DJ I guess we should tip since he comes from a company and isn’t independently setting his rates. I just don’t know how much. Our photographer is independent, but I don’t know how it works for the second shooter she is bringing – that’s at no charge to us. So I feel like we should tip him, but then would it be unfair if we didn’t tip her too? What’s an appropriate amount to tip photographers anyway? 

    So, guess I’m not much help!
