Tipping

Hi,

I think I've seen a post on here before about who to tip... but I can't find it now.  Can you help me out with who you plan to tip (or who you did tip for past brides)?
DJ?
Officiant?
Head waitress/waiter?
Photographer?
Bus?

The limo driver gratuity is already built into the price.  Thanks for your help!

    We tipped the dj and mc, hair and makeup artists, and the maitre d'. I didn't tip the photographer since he owns his own business. I probably should have tipped his assistant but that completely fell off my radar.

    We didn't tip the priest who did our ceremony because he was DH's cousin, and we didn't tip the bus or limo drivers because gratuities were already included.

    I'm sure there's a service charge at your reception site, but check with your coordinator. Sometimes that is used to tip the servers/bartenders, but sometimes it isn't. If it isn't, you'll want to tip them as well.

    Thanks for the info.  I forgot to mention Hair & Make-up - but I was planning on tipping them too.  Thanks!
