Hi All! My wedding is this Saturday (October 2), and I am all done planning… except now I need to figure out who and what to tip!
We have a contact person at our venue who has helped nail down all details since we chose the venue. This is, of course, her job… however, I’m wondering if I also need to tip her on the day of? If so, what is a reasonable amount?
Please let me know if you tipped this person… also, what other people did you tip??

I said $50 but it depends on a few things. My venue doesn’t allow tipping of staff so check your contract. Also, I would tip if I felt like the person was going above and beyond. I wouldn’t tip her if I felt like she was just going through the motions.

It really all depends. At my venue, it’s really just their job to do those things and it’s not really considered normal to tip them. I actually don’t think it’s even allowed. However, if she goes above and beyond and does way more than what the job actually calls for, I think a $50 dollar tip is a great idea.

Thanks ladies! She upgraded us to the penthouse suite ($1,500/night) for the night of our wedding for absolutely free. That is the 1 thing she’s done to go really above and beyond; otherwise, I probably wouldn’t really consider tipping.
Our contract does not say whether or not she can accept tips… but I’ll give it a go and go with $50. Thanks so much for your advice!!
