acw2016:  If you are renting the vases, you will most likely be responsible for returning them after the wedding.

We fed our 2 photographers, 2 DJs and 2 bus drivers. Basically any vendor that is expected to stay throughout the night should receive a meal.

Agree with PP, whoever is staying. For us it’s just a photographer and the DJ.

Any vender who you are requesting to stay through a meal time your reception should be fed.  For your florist, I doubt that you are requesting them to stay through a meal, so they are not your responsiblity to feed them.  I have heard of a few very portective florist deciding to stay that long, but that is there choice, not yours. 

So most likley your DJ and photogrpaher, but if you don’t have a photography contract through your reception, its not needed.

acw2016:   We fed the vendors who stayed for the reception – photographers, DJ and assistant, and photobooth operator plus assistant.  Also the Day of Coordinator.

Our florist dropped off the flowers, put on the boutonnieres, visited for a bit then left, so she didn’t get a meal.

Does one normally feed the bus driver? That didnt even occur to me.

We’re feeding the DJ, MC, DOC, photographer, photog’s assistant, and 2 videographers.

If they are there, feed them, it’s the polite thing to do.  We only had the photographer so that was easy!  The florist did not come, but we didn’t have centerpieces, so it probably makes a difference.

Anyone who was there for dinner was invited to eat. We also brought in sandwiches for staff who was there during the day, setting up.
