Ok, so I have googled and searched on here and gotten about a million answers to this. I know that if they own their own business tipping is optional, and to make sure that gratuity is not included in the contract already. But I was just curious what you guys all did/are doing for tipping. Who did you tip and what percentage?
I also had a specific question about my reception venue. Tips are included in our package which includes the dinner, open bar and valet parking. My question is does that included gratuity go to the bartenders and the valet drivers in addition to the wait staff or should I tip them seperately?
