- Wedding: September 2014
SOOO I live in Florida and am getting married in Hartford CT. It’s a smallish wedding and both my flower lady and cake lady are doing amazing. They both work out of their homes and have been doing it for years. They both met me right around christmas last year because that was the only time I was in CT. (one on the 23rd and one on the 26th), the Florist partner had a hartattack (she is alive but has to stop working) and is now going it alone, but called to keep me updated, kept everyting under budget and has been just so amazing. I changed my Maid/Matron of Honor flowers to 3 boutonnieres and 3 corsages (change in my wedding party) and asked to be told the difference and she said there is NONE!
The cake tasting was the best I ever had! she was late to the meeting and has in the contract that we are getting a free 6 inch take home red velvet (my FAVE) cake. She also has helped us with getting people to set up because the florist is short handed.
Because they are older ladys and these aren’t normally tiped vendors how to I show my gratitude? I was thinking a card and a gift card to a restaurant, or should it just be cash like tip would be? I was also thinking of a small token gif like a nice picture frame ect.
