I gave a tip to all of my vendors even though the majority of them owned the business. I felt they did an amazing job and deserved the tip. Plus, I never really understood the concept of not tipping someone for a job well done just because they owned the business. We also had quite a few friend/vendor-professionals who gave us great deals. I didn’t want them to lose money on our wedding, so I gave them a tip. 

I gave flat tips to each vendor but did take the total bill into account when deciding on the amount. Every vendor received a little thank you card and envelope at the end of the wedding containing the tip. The only exception was for our wedding planners. I waited on theirs because I wanted to get each of them something on our honeymoon in addition to their tip.

I tipped my photographer even though she owns her own business.  I gave her $150 and she ended up adding pages to my album.  I think it was probably because I tipped her.
