Hi Bees! I’m getting married in 13 days! I have no idea what to tip the caterer. They are delivering and setting up the food (we are setting up tables, chairs, and had to provide dishes, utensils, tablecloths, etc) but they are not serving the food or cleaning up. We have to return the chaffing dishes and serving utensils the following day. Our total pre tax is $1077 and tax is $70. Normally I would tip 15-20% if they were serving, but since they aren’t, I have no idea what is appropriate. Also, do I include the tip with the final check to pay off the balance, or should it be separate and whom do I give the tip to if I do it separate? The final invoice specifically says gratuity not included.
