Hi

We were given "guidelines" for the reception tips:

$3-$5: for the maitre’d who would pass it out to the staff

$75: for Bridal attendant

 DJ- $100 for MC, $50 for DJ and assistant

Photograhy: $100 for main photog, $75 for second photog

Videography: $100

I just gave a few extra bucks for hair and makeup because it’s their own business and they get all profits anyways.

Related question: if tips aren’t included in my catering costs, do I tip 20% of the total catering bill, or 20% of the cost of hiring the service staff, or….?

what if the reception venue already adds on 20% service fee? do i still have to tip?
