@littleprettyliz:  Checks give you a paper trail, just in case it’s needed.

You may want to check with the vendors. A few of our vendors required cash.

We gave cash and handed it to them at the end. We gave $50 cash for the DJ, photography and video. I know it seems low, but we’re already paying them $800-1k for one night.

I’ll be doing cash. Waiting for checks to clear annoys the crap out of me. It think it’s funny that vendors “require” cash tips. Why are they requiring tips at all?

I tipped in cash.  I figured they would prefer it…and if I wanted to adjust up or down on the day of, it was easier to do that with cash.

I just assumed cash so that we could adjust as needed and so they could easily have it available. I actually didn’t even realize that checks would be an option, and in a few cases I’m not even exactly sure who I’d write the check to (for instance, we are having a strings trio – the name of the trio or each individual member).
