how much to tip wedding vendors
As wedding professionals we by no means expect a tip, but they are always appreciated-especially if you really loved our work or felt we went above + beyond.
Also, please review us online + share the love for the world to hear.
While some vendors include a gratuity fee in their contract, many will leave that up to you to determine based on the level of service they provide.
Tipping is not anticipated, however, if you feel that the service you received from one of your vendors exceeded your expectations, a 10 percent tip is a nice gesture.
Check your contracts to see if gratuity is included. Typically, this shows up from the caterer +/or bartender, but most other vendors don’t include tips in their fees.
So who should you tip-
Hair + Make up
Just like at the salon, suggested tip is around 15%- 20% of the service. You may provide this tip yourself if you’re paying for all of your bridesmaids’ services, or include a tip in the total that they each owe so they can make sure to have enough cash on hand.
