Are you paying “service fees” for any of the catering staff or bartenders?  If not, I think they should all be tipped.

  • Wedding: October 2011

I know we don’t have to tip the business owners but I chose to anyway…

  • Hair (owner): She came to the resort and styled myself, all of my ‘maids and my Mother-In-Law (total of 5 women). If I remember correctly, that was about $350. – $50 tip.
  • Makeup (non-owner): She came to the resort and did mine and my MOH’s MU. That cost $175. – $50 tip.
  • DOC (owner): I actually got her for free through WB. She used as our wedding to bulk up her portfolio. – $100 tip.
  • Photog (owner): We paid $900 for our package that was worth at least 3x that. – $100 tip.
  • DJ (owner): This is the only one I wish I hadn’t tipped since we weren’t thrilled with him. As a DJ he was fine but he wasn’t prepared and hardly played any of our requested music. We paid him $1000. – $100 tip.
  • Venue: 20% service charge was included in our package price. I sent our venue coordinator (who became a friend throughout our planning) flowers after our reception.
