Our catering has a gratuity built in but I am unsure about what to do for our other vendors.
I feel like somewhere along the way I read if the person delivering the service is the company owner your not to tip but if they are a member of a team supplied by the hired company then you do. I think I also saw though for some vendors a glowing review and referrals is more appreciated.
So here is what we have ...
photographer and second shooter - photographer is company owner, good friend, pretty much second choice we made after deciding to get married
hair & makeup- one girl who is the company owner
videographer and second shooter- hired team members brought in by company owner
What are your thoughts or suggestions for this??
