    My gratuity was included in my per person head!

    Did you know it wasn’t included already – I think it is pretty standard to expect that gratuity would be added to your catering costs!

    In your case I would ask what the service cost covers if not gratuity!

    A gratituity is a fancy name for a tip. There is absolutely no reason that it should be included without your knowledge and consent prior to the service being performed. You never tip anyone before the service is performed because you don’t know beforehand what the quality of service will be like. If you feel they deserve a tip for going above and beyond the call of duty only (not for simply doing their job or giving you bad service), then you give it to them after the wedding is over. Do not be afraid to stand up for yourself if you don’t know what something is or why you are being charged. In this case, definitely do not pay if you do not have the extra money, and really they don’t need it at this time, especially since they are not losing money.
