    I do not plan to tip the coordinator that we are provided with, mainly because we have to pay for him even though he does a really bad job at communicating and I don’t trust him at all to pull off what we want our venues to look like. If it wasn’t required that we pay for him to be there, we wouldn’t be paying for it! I hired my own coordinator and will probably tip her because she has been wonderful.

    We are totally planning on tipping our coordinator, so far he has been amazing.

    I wasn’t planning on it, but I suppose if he goes above and beyond I might consider it.

    ABSOLUTELY…I couldn’t imagine not tipping her (well maybe if she was doing a horrible job, but even then I would probably give her something).

    I never even considered tipping her and considering she has been the only thing/person to stress me out during this entire process I am going to say no.

    I’m a wedding planner with my own company, and generally, on-site coordinators are not tipped unless they do an extraordinary job, and the bride and groom are particularly happy with them.

    Our coordinator made it clear that she is paid a nice salary by the venue when we first booked the place, and made it clear that everyone who works there is either salaried or paid hourly and tips/gratuities are not necessary.  She’s a lovely person to work with and has been very helpful along the way so I was still going to get her some sort of thank you gift afterwards… Maybe I’ll just send her some nice flowers or something.

    We are planning to tip.  Not a huge amount, but something as a thank you.

    Our venue coordinator has been very accomodating and responsive. I’ll be tipping her. My question is how much?
