Our wedding is being done as a package so I don't know the cost of each individual vendor. I tried to ask the coordinator, but all he told me was to tip 20%. I don't know 20% of WHAT???? Anyone have any recommendations for a dollar amount to tip the following people:
officiant (who is not part of any church that I know of)
violinist (playing 4 songs at our ceremony)
airbrush makeup artist coming to my hotel room
hairstylist coming to my hotel room (just for me, not doing anyone else's hair)
trolley driver (taking our guests on a 1 hour narrated tour while we get pics taken)
carriage driver (taking me from the hotel to the ceremony)
carriage driver (may or may not be the same person, taking us after the ceremony for a 30 minute ride, then back to our hotel)
florist, whom I probably won't see
coordinator (who, honestly, has been AWFUL and deserves nothing in my opinion)
the coordinator will probably have assistants the day of the ceremony but I don't know how many or what they'll be doing.
baker, whom I won't see but our design is really complicated and if she pulls it off she totally deserves something extra.
The woman at the hotel who arranged our room block has acted more like a coordinator and has been more than helpful. She has gone WAY beyond her duties of just setting up the room block for us by giving recommendations, sending us maps of the area, telling us who to contact for marriage licenses, etc. I got her a small box of locally made chocolates with the Chicago skyline on the box and will write her a nice thank you card. Is that enough or should I also give her a monetary tip?
