We tipped the officiant, and the photographer (because they did a great job)  i would have tipped a DOC if we had one.

We didn’t tip the DJ because he didn’t listen to many of our requests, and usually gratuities and tax are included in the price for food/alcohol at your venue or through your caterer.

I personally would tip the DJ.  If you are low on cash you are not required to tip the banquet manager but it is nice if you do.  Anyone else providing services that is staying for your wedding I would tip like the photographer but that is also not necessary.  I would get the officiant a small gift to thank them, unless a cash donation to where you are getting married is expected.

We tipped the DJ, string musicians, catering staff, bartenders, and valets. We did not tip the photographer, site coordinator, florist, officiant, baker, or DOC, but we wrote them glowing thank yous/recommendations and sent them photos of their work at our wedding. We also tipped the concierge at the hotel where our room block was and got excellent service for ourselves and our guests.
