Good question. I didn’t even think about gratuity! I wonder what percentage is appropriate?

You tip vendors who do not own their own company. We only tipped catering staff, and we probably should have tipped shuttle drivers :x. Our coordinator owner her own company, as did our photographer, watecolor artist, hair person / makeup person…so we didn’t tip any of them.


You tip what is appropriate. I wasn’t going to tip 15% of a really high catering bill (that includes food and service already) to the wait staff. But $50-100/person seemed reasonable.
