So I’m getting down to the wire and our budget is running very close! Who exactly should I tip? I’ve read lots of different opinions on this and just wanted to see what you ladies are doing. Our photographer owns her business, our DJ is a friend of a friend who is doing it for a good price. Our reception venue already added in the 20% (that hurt). I’m just concerned about the dj and photog. what do you think?

@futuremrse: I’d tip the DJ after the wedding if he did a good job. I’d tip the photographer AFTER you get your photos. I’m a photographer & I strongly prefer to be tipped because you loved my work so much (which you won’t know until you look at all the pics on the dvd) over just being tipped for showing up.

i think that tipping is a great gesture. If you like the work that they did do it, if not.. idk.. its up to you.
