    I didn't tip  my seamstress.

    I also didn't tip.  I suppose if you think she's fabulous it wouldn't hurt.  You never know, the shop may not allow it.

    I'd only tip if she did something fabulous for you and didn't charge you a ridiculous amount.

    I would consider tipping my seamstress, except she's the owner of the bridal salon AND she's charging me $500 for my alterations.
    So no. I'm not tipping her, even though she'll do an astounding job.

    I didn't tip, never thought about it.  I only need a bustle so it was not hard work.






    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.

    You'll never be subject to a cash bar, gap, potluck wedding, or b-list if you marry a Muppet Overlord.

    I did not tip the dress vendor, nor have I ever heard of doing so.

    I saw other brides tip their seamstress at my salon, but I didn't. The outrageous amount of money I paid for the alterations, I didn't think the tip was necessary. I would only do it for someone who went above & beyond, pulled off the impossible, etc.
