I realize there are lots of discussions on here about tipping, but I’m still curious about people’s opinions about tipping someone if he or she is the owner of the business. I’m also tempted to not tip anyone who is charging me a high delivery charge or travel fee. For example, the florist is charging $100 to drop off the bouquets and bouts to our hotel. She’s not getting a tip on top of that. The make-up person I’m thinking of going with charges a $50 travel fee. I’m leaning toward considering that fee her tip as well (especially since she’s the owner). What do people think about these things? I’m generally a good tipper–20% in restaurants, $1-$2 per drink in bars, etc.). But I feel like I’m being gouged with this whole wedding industrial complex. Thoughts?
