Thank goodness gratuities are already included in the cost of my venue. That would just have me freaking out.

Relucantly I am tipping the photographer, DJ, florist, limo driver, and not reluctantly the hair & make up lady.

I read somewhere that if the photographer owns the business then a bigger tip is not necessary. Is this true?

limo and hair salon.  No one else deserved a tip or they already had the tip built in (like the caterer, for instance with service charges).

I’m so glad I live in Australia, we don’t tip here. Ever.

We plan on tipping the DJ, the banquet manager and the officiant.  The photographer and videographer own their businesses so there’s not reason for tipping them, they’re pocketing the huge amount I will have already given them.  And an 18% service charge is included in the final bill for the venue so I don’t even think about that.
