My DJ did uplighting also, however our DJ was included in the venue “package” so I have no idea how much he was total. You are very generous to be tipping…we didn’t tip our DJ

I agree with PP. My DJ is doing uplighting, however, I’m not tipping the DJ.

Does your DJ own the company?  I’ve gone with the rule of thumb that if it’s their business, then I don’t tip. If they work for someone else, then I’ll tip.

You’re tipping a vendor????

Seems to me you’re already paying them $2500.

That’s their tip.

If they don’t own the company–I may tip, IF they do an exceptional job.

I might give the DJ if he is not the owner a $50 tip if he does a great job. That is it.

I am tipping all of my vendors except the photographer, because she is the owner of her business.  I’m pretty sure this is the standard practice.  I think $150 or $200 would be fine for the DJ!
