To Tip or Not?
Another common question from brides is what vendors do I tip and how much?
Tipping the DJ, Band and the Musicians are generally the ones you should ( or that I have seen I should say- not to obligate you) but only if you feel they have done a great job and you *want* to give something extra. $20 minimum is a good starting point for a guideline if your not sure.
You do not have to tip floral delivery/setup people, the cake delivery people, the lighting technicians, photographer, videographer, the site coordinator, the coat check personnel or your wedding planner. It is very nice if you want to tip these people but it is at your discretion for a job well done and if your budget allows. It is not something that should be expected.
