The only vendor i would tip is the reception caterer/servers. The rest of them are being paid for their services directly and dont think that a tip is necessary….

  • Charter bus driver— no need to tip, but a 10-15% tip at the end of the night would be much apprecieated (keep in mind he’s a 1 man taxi for your whole event, so just like you’d tip a taxi driver, it’s polite to tip him as well)
  • Justice of the Peace— Do not tip.
  • Wedding coordinator at the venue–18% tip is already included 
  • Photographer–A $20-40 tip per photographer would be nice, but not necessary
  • DJ— Same as photographers 
  • Photo/Video Booth— A thank-you card with a gift certificate would be best.  Even if it’s just $10 at Starbucks, it lets him know you apprecieate it. 

All of these are optional, but this is what I would do.  I would also tip each server/caterer $20 for the night, as well as the bartender, unless he has his own jar.
