I would give her 150 if she did a stellar job.

I didn’t know we were supposed to tip the venue. 

My usual rule of thumb for tipping though is 10%.

I don’t know. I have another venue tipping question too if any bees have advice. 

I am getting married at a full service NJ wedding venue ($150 per person cost, includes everything). That $150 includes a 22% service charge which tips all servers. However, the day of coordinator and matire’d need to get tipped. The venue recommended $4-$5 tip per person coming to the wedding. We are having 80 people. That is a $350-$400 tip, on top of the 22% service charge we are giving the venue (which amounts to $2000). 

This is just more than I budgeted for. I hoped to give a $200 tip. Does anyone have any thoughts if I am being unfair?
