Bop or Flop: Tipping the Venue?

Elle, on January 31, 2023 at 6:31 PM Posted in Planning 0 2

Hi there! I was reviewing my invoice for the venue I am using for the ceremony and reception. Its kind of an all-in-one gig in which they provide the food and bar. I noticed a 20% service charge on the receipt. Is this considered the tip or is it customary to tip on top of the service charge?

    The service charge is typically a completely separate fee, and none of it goes to the wait staff.

    Almost always, the service charge is not considered gratuity. Double check with the venue on what the service charge covers, but most likely, gratuity is separate from the service fee.
