June 2013 Weddings


  What is everyone doing regarding tipping? I read somewhere that if your photographer or DJ are self employed, it is not necessary to tip  them. Is this true?

  If you are tipping, how do u determine how much?

    My waxing lady just told me if someone is self employed you don't tip. News to me, I do what I feel right about.

    I'm not tipping those that own the company. They set the prices etc etc. So I'm not tipping my photographer, Justice of the Peace or DJ. My caterer has a 20% tip built in that the servers split so I'm not adding anything additional to that. I'm tipping my photo booth attendant, photographer's assistant and shuttle bus driver all $50. I'm tipping my venue coordinator $150 because she has dealt with a lot of stuff for me, talked me down a few times and generally just been amazing.

    I did not tip anyone.  The caterer had gratuity included, the limo had gratuity included and my Dj and Photographer owned the business.
    Although, I wish I tipped the assistant to the photographer. I didn't think about that until later.
