Tipping Your Wedding Vendors

Hello friends! If you have a more reserved budget, a hand written thank you notes goes a LONG way as well! Here is a list of my suggested tip amount per vendor. Always remember this is YOUR wedding and you should tip them the amount that you believe they should receive. 

Main Venue Contact: $200-$300

Note: Some venues are not allowed to take an additional tip. 

Photographer: 10% of their fee

Videographer: 10% of their fee

Florist: 10% of their fee

Wedding Planner: 10% of their fee

Band or DJ: $25 per musician or $100 for 1 DJ

Catering Manager: $200

Waitstaff: $25/waiter

Bartenders: $50/bartender

Hair & makeup: 10-15%

Vallet: $1/car

Officiant: A donation to the church

Again, when it comes to tipping, a nice gift or hand written letter is also appreciated from every wedding vendor. We love to know that you are so happy with your overall wedding day.
