The tips for everyone are really up to you.  If you’re paying all of these people for a service, then they probably don’t need tips as well unless you think they did a good job above and beyond your expectations.  As far as how much – again that’s kind of based on what you think.  If you think it’s appropriate and you don’t want to carry cash today, maybe a thank you card with a small monetary tip later would suffice.

Good luck and congratulations!

OMG…CONGRATS!!!  I love that you posted today on your wedding day!!  thats love for the hive for real!! 

I would say that tipping is up to you and up to the service that was received!!  And don’t bother with carry the cash, just tip them after the wedding festivites even up to a week!  I’m sure they’ll be grateful for anything!

Congrats, and I hope you have a great day!

Tipping is totally optional, so I’d base it on how well they did! (So yeah, I agree with the other ladies). 🙂

Give the cash to the Bridesmaid or Best Man or Maid/Matron of Honor.

JoP – Usually $100-200 donation to religious institution, but this wouldn’t apply in your case, so just $100.

Venue’s Coordinators: No, not with the 20% admin. fee

Piano Player: Yes, $50

D.J.: depending on the service, at the end of the night 10%

Florist Delivery: Possibly. Is anybody there when the flowers are being delivered? $20 should do it.

You don’t have time to get cash today – reimburse your Bridesmaid or Best Man or Maid/Matron of Honor after the honeymoon. Breakout your checkbook or call them to go to an ATM asap!

And seriously – I wouldn’t worry much about tipping right now … I think a great thank-you note and a monetary gift after the fact should do the trick just fine … it’s kinda silly that we’re expected to tip on the service we should be EXPECTING our vendors to provide … I can understand wanting to give something extra if the service is really above and beyond – but breathe slowly and surely … no worries about this being one more stressor!
