most of our vendors our freelancers, meaning they are their own boss. it seems odd to tip our dj, photog, or day of planner since the what we pay them is theirs, if that make sense? but we do feel we should tip their assistants if they do a good job. who out of this people is it customary to tip?
catering manager (owner of the company) no tip?
catering staff is obvious, servers, chef, bartender etc.
dj – independant and paid cash – no tip?
d.o.c – independant and paid cash – no tip?
d.o.c. assistant – yes tip?
photog – indepenant and paid cash – no tip?
photog’s assistant – yes tip?
florist – owner of the flower shop will deliver the flowers, do we tip him?
any help is much appreciated…we don’t want to be cheap but of course money is getting scarce.
