As a PP suggested, I think it would be nice to send a thank you and another tip. It sounds like she did a lot more than she’d originally agreed to and probably would have felt awkward asking for more money.

If you feel bad then send her a thank you with the extra money. You’ll feel good after 🙂

I second tipping her. She’ll appreciate it.

I’d put a large tip in a thank you card and call it a token of my appreciation. Also, if she has a business leave her some nice reviews to help promote her.

sunshadebride :  If it were me, I would pay the fee for the props she rented. I think any planner should be reimbursed for things like that if it was reasonable. 

As far as feeling bad, if she did a great service and you feel like you owe her a tip (and it kind of sounds like you do), I would write her a thank you card and send an additional tip, plus write a few online reviews for her!

I think the thank you card and tip sound perfect! I am sure she will appreciate it. I second the good reviews! I know vendors who thrive, or die off, of them!

My wedding planner is a dear friend who is charging me nothing for her services. She is newly licensed and building her portfolio and using our vendor trips to get her business cards and name out there. She insists on not accepting any money so I’m going to buy her a lovely gift and include her in all the prewedding fun stuff like the shower and bachelorette party.
