If I was hosting I would have made sure there was nothing like that around. I did the same for the bartenders and told them I would take care of them afterwards. I hate tip cups!

I’ve never seen that at any wedding or other event that I’ve been to. If my DJ had put out a tip jar I would have told them to put it away now. That’s just a bit icky. I wouldn’t mind business cards or pamphlets, but a big water cooler tips jar?! No way!!!

Ours had 20% gratuity added as well, and we still tipped $100. for each. They did a great job and our guests were happy, so it was worth the extra to us.

I’ve never seen something like that from a DJ,tho,and I’ve been to a ton of weddings.

Out of line! A DJ shouldn’t be asking wedding guests for tips.

That is not ok!  We will give the DJ a tip later, but there will be no tip jar out.  Plus, we have a 17% mandatory gratuity for food and beverage at our venue, so there is NO WAY that the bartenders will be putting out tip jars either.

Ewwww why would wedding guests need to tip him? He’s already overpaid as is!

Our bartenders had a tip jar out as well, but our DJ didn’t.  Kind of annoyed me because we had a consumption bar, and there was already an 18% gratuity built into the price we were charged for drinks.

That would bug me… It would have to go away immediatly. I already paid a rediculous amount for you to be there. My guests don’t need to pay you again.
