I tipped for hair, waitstaff, and limo driver. I gave a small gift to the event coordinator at the venue because I think she went above and beyond. I tipped about 20% for hair and limo and I gave the waitstaff a flat amount that I felt was fair based on the number of people, amount of time, and that it was a buffet. I did not tip photographer, officiant, caricature artist. I didn’t have a DJ or florist, but I wouldn’t have tipped them anyway.

My rule of thumb is always tip in traditional tip driven industries. Other than that, never tip a business owner and never tip someone for just doing their standard job. Also, since wedding prices are inflated, you don’t necessarily need to tip the same % as you would for normal services. Some people may disagree, but this is what I followed.
