- Wedding: November 2008
I am getting married in November 2008 at The Carltun in East Meadow and I am trying to figure out how much we are supposed to tip all of the vendors. We have 2 photographers (and they bring an assistant), a videographer, 2 musicians for the ceremony/cocktail hour, a DJ for the reception, and an attendant for the photobooth.
The Knot has an article that says we should tip the photographer/videographer $50-200 per vendor, but is this enough given the inflated prices in NY and LI for vendors? I’m just not sure that $200 is enough for a photographer that is spending 9 hours with us?
Also, I read that we should drop off cash at The Carltun the day before the wedding so the maitre d’ can tip the people delivering the flowers, photobooth, etc. Did anyone else do this or are planning on doing it?
I usually over tip everyone, but of course this is not your everyday event so I want to make sure that I am at least tipping enough. TIA!!
